Why Robotics & RISS?

Robotics-related technologies are becoming ubiquitous and are dominating national headlines due to innovations such as driverless cars, service robots, surgical robots, and aerial vehicles. Robots and the knowledge required to create, operate, and interact with them will become increasingly important to society.

The RISS program is designed to immerse students in the world of robotics.  Through RISS, students perform research under the mentorship of top scientists in robotics and intelligent systems at Carnegie Mellon University’s Robotics Institute.  RISS has access to over 50 research mentors representing a broad range of robotics research (e.g. field robotics, computer vision, machine learning, artificial intelligence, autonomy, machine learning, graphics, human-robot interaction, and space robotics).

The RISS-guided research experience is coupled with powerful professional development in a nurturing global community and culminates in August with an annual research poster session and the publication of the RISS Working Papers Journal.  Many students continue to collaborate with RISS mentors, labs, and cohort members.

More information about the program, including 2017 research posters and papers (2017 the RISS Working Papers Journal) can be found here: riss.ri.cmu.edu.  Here is the RISS 2018 Poster from the RISS website.
