Among these, we are currently focusing on four main specific topics: 1) XR-based Smart Manufacturing (e.g., Semiconductor and Battery), 2) Machine Learning and Computational Modeling, 3) Collaborative Robot, and 4) Machine Vision-based Digital Inspection Methodology (e.g., Cognex, PLC, and NI). For detail information, please visit the web-site of Smart Manufacturing and Data Analytics Group.
Required background & knowledge: mechatronics, industrial automation and robotics, machine vision, numerical modeling, PLC, and programming (e.g., C++, Unity, and Python). Applicants should hold a baccalaureate or a master degree in a field of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer science, industrial engineering or related-areas. Applicants may have earned a minimum of
- GPA: 3.0 on a 4.0 GPA scale (3.4 or the above preferred).
- GRE: Quantitative greater than 50%; Verbal greater than 33%; Writing greater than 33%
