SCI 370 Robotics and Engineering

Robotics and Engineering is a semester science elective where students explore the amazing world of robotics. This course predominantly focuses on the hands-on creation of robots that meet both remote and autonomous control requirements. Through the process of discovery, students will inherently learn product development life-cycle principles from an engineering perspective. Integrated software development will be encapsulated within a V-Model development framework. The product and software development processes will be learned via creation of robots that meet specified user criteria. Students will research formal development approaches and the current and future role of robotics in society.
