- OpOpen Robotics University took social network a step further. All our operations from students admission to teaching and learning processes is powered by Google + Check out our link:
Would you like to participate in Open Robotics University (here is the link: https://plus.google.com/116933350390355237142) as a student, advisor or sponsor? The university is powered by Google+, is free of charge, and currently forming robotics project Google+ circles for the undergraduate through doctorate levels in robotics engineering for the September, 2012 term. Right now we are head quartered in San Francisco, California. Our goal is to create circles based on cities round the globe. We currently have students in 30 cities in 19 countries.
The university would use hybrid approach that integrates virtual learning and meetup to collaboratively build robotics projects for college credits leading to bachelor, masters and doctorate degrees. Our pre-university program offers high school students opportunity to study for college credits and some of the credits will be based on active participation in FIRST robotics program. Student in any university and professionals in science, technology, engineering and mathematics related fields can enroll in our university. Since the program is for students, working and non-working professionals, students will be in total control of their level of participation. It would not be too much course load combining your current university program or job with our program.
Open Robotics University is the first university to provide people around the world, based on Google+ platform, free access to study for undergraduate through doctorate degrees in robotics engineering. We have recently secured partnership with OpenRov Robotics (www.openrov.com) to use their robotics platform to conduct research and build world-class oceanic robots to explore the world’s ocean. Other area of research includes space, defense, surveillance, recreational, rehabilitation, person assistant, and medical robotics applications. Open Robotics University is working with practicing engineers to serve as mentors to our students. If you decide to be a student, we would include you in our September robotics circle classes. But first, we would like to know your level of education and your major area of study to enable us place you in the right level and projects.
The founder of the university served as a FIRST robotics coach and mentor to three teams, and he was a presenter at the 2008 FIRST Robotics World Championship at Atlanta, Georgia. He has completed four masters and a doctorate degree. His experience, while attempting to complete fifth and six masters degree in software engineering and electrical engineering respectively, influenced him to open this university. He strongly believe that future engineers should not be subjected to outdated text books and high cost of tuition in this digital age. Any dedicated individual can receive high quality education via social media infrastructure. Prospective students should seek admission by adding us to their circle. Admission will be granted after successful review of your posting indicating your interest, resume and transcripts. All admission procedures and students’ completion of courses will be completed via Google+ platform. This revolutionary Open-Source Learn It Yourself (LIY) movement is a seismic shift in education. Join us to educate tomorrow’s innovators and leaders with robotics.Jul 30, 2012
