The Computational Robotics laboratory has positions available for prospective Ph.D. and master students interested in Robotics and/or Artificial Intelligence. Ideal candidates have at least a BS degree in Computer Science. Candidates with other backgrounds, e.g., Electrical Engineering, but a strong computing background are encouraged to apply. Only students with high GPA in their major will be considered. Visit the lab page for information on the ongoing research in the lab.
Prospective graduate students need to follow all the application procedures laid out by the University and the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. In addition, curriculum vitae, copy of transcripts, letter describing the research interest and background, and two reference letters should be emailed to plaku/AT/cua.edu. Students already enrolled at CUA who are interested in joining the Computational Robotics group should stop by the office Pangborn 312.
The Computational Robotics laboratory has positions available for undergraduate students already enrolled at CUA. Junior and senior students should also check out the senior design page to see examples of senior-design projects in robotics. Undergraduate students that join our group are routinely offered paid summer jobs to conduct research in our lab.
The Computational Robotics laboratory has positions available for high-school students. Preference is given to students already involved in robotics or computer science efforts at their high schools, e.g., DC FIRST robotics competition or various robotics clubs. High-school students will work closely with undergraduate and graduate students on various robotics projects. Interested students should email a letter describing their interest and background, unofficial copy of transcripts, and a reference letter to plaku/AT/cua.edu. A limited number of paid positions is available during the summer.
