The Office of the President and College of Engineering and Applied Science are increasing support for robotics education. In fall 2013, two new FIRST® Robotics Scholarships were awarded to incoming engineering students. Next fall, 25 such scholarships will be offered.
CEAS Interim Dean Teik C. Lim says, “Interest in the interdisciplinary field of robotics has rightfully skyrocketed, and our college is showing the results of this interest as enrollment in our engineering program this year has grown substantially. Computer engineering has more than doubled, and admissions to computer science have risen by 94 percent. Other engineering programs, including mechanical and aerospace engineering with a strong focus on robotics, have also seen double digit increases in freshman enrollment.
“Additionally, our students are consistently excelling at co-op experiences utilizing robotics while numerous widely respected organizations are taking note of their significant accomplishments. For example, a trio of our own aerospace students presented ‘Surveillance for Intelligent Emergency Response Robotic Aircraft (SIERRA)’ at the National Council of Space Grant Directors’ Meeting. This was the first time that NASA had streamed these presentations ‘live’ online.”
