WVU to launch robotics engineering major
15 Dec 2023
Students interested in the rapidly evolving world of robotics will now be able to enroll in a new robotics engineering major at West Virginia University following approval by the Board of Governors during a meeting Friday (Dec. 15).
The four-year degree program will officially launch in fall 2024 and builds on the globally recognized success of existing WVU robotics-related efforts.
“Robotics engineering is one of the fastest growing professions in the world,” Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs Maryanne Reed said. “This program will prepare students for a rewarding career in robotics engineering across well-established sectors such as aerospace, defense, transportation, health care and agriculture.”
