Graduate Studies Requirements and Courses


A student must take four courses from at least three out of four distinct groups. Courses are listed by group below. A student is required to take the remaining courses needed to satisfy the program requirements of his/her home department.

Students must contact course instructors to ensure that they satisfy all the course pre-requisites. Please see the list of researchers in robotics and mechatronics at the University of Toronto. Students who complete the requirements of the Emphasis will be provided a certificate of completion at the end of their studies. The certificate may be claimed by contacting .
