Engineering Physics to Robotics/Electrical Engineering

  1. Oct 3, 2014 #1
    Hi Everyone, I was wondering how Electrical Engineering graduate schools particularly concentrating in Robotics and Automation would view an undergraduate degree in Engineering Physics? I just wanted to gauge how my chances would be. I have a 3.96 GPA with 1 REU, 1 paper and 1 poster presentation. I am President of the Physics Club and will have very good letters. I expect to get around 170Q and 165V in the GRE (hopefully) based on practice tests if that has any value. My biggest weakness apart from my undergraduate degree would be that I come from a small LAC with nonexistent reputation outside of my state.

    If you do well in the GRE then why would they care? :)

    You sound like a super strong candidate. I think you'll do great. Aim high and make sure you apply for all the relevant fellowships (NSF, NDSEG, etc).

    Thanks for the reply guys. @analogdesign I am just very nervous because of the non-existent reputation of my program and school (LAC).
