Robotics MicroMasters® Program | PennX on edX


[MUSIC PLAYING] VIJAY KUMAR: The field of
robotics has changed dramatically over the last 50 years. It’s changing the way we
think about manufacturing, it’s revolutionizing health care, it’s
disrupting the transportation industry, and it’s sure to impact the food and
agriculture industry in the years to come. I’m Vijay Kumar. I’m the dean of Penn
Engineering, and I’m a member of the GRASP Laboratory
of the University of Pennsylvania. The GRASP Laboratory
was established in 1979, and it’s one of the preeminent
robotics laboratories in the world. My colleagues and I are excited to
bring to you a MicroMasters in robotics. The MicroMasters program
combines fundamentals in robotics with applications,
and blends theory with practice. You will learn the basics of robot
mechanics, how robots sense the world, how they control their
behavior, and how they can behave in a safe and cooperative
fashion next to human beings. As a student, you will
leave this program with an impressive skill
set, one that is required to navigate a fast-changing
technological landscape in which robotics will play a prominent role. Regardless of what career
options you choose to pursue, robotics is sure to change your life. Enroll in the MicroMasters program in
robotics and join the robot revolution. And together, we will change the world.
