Additional Major 2017-06-23T15:22:33+00:00

Admission to the Additional Major Program

The Additional Major in robotics is designed for students who want to explore the field more than is possible through the Minor in Robotics.

Although students can come from any department on campus, the nature of the courses required for the Additional Major makes it ideal for students already pursuing an undergraduate degree in computer science through the School of Computer Science, or in engineering through the College of Engineering.

How to Apply

Generally, students should apply in their freshman year at CMU—but we allow admissions for students in their sophomore year provided they meet the requirements and their schedule allows enough time for degree completion.

The application period is January 7 – February 1. Admission decisions will be sent via email no later than the Friday before Fall Registration Week.

Required application materials include:

  • Full name, email address and Andrew ID
  • Home college, GPA, year you intend to graduate, and list of all declared Majors and Minors
  • Proposed schedule of required courses
  • Statement of purpose (1-2 page, single spaced, to articulate why the student wants to pursue the robotics major)

PLEASE NOTE: You must be a current CMU undergraduate student and possess a valid CMU email address to complete the application.
