Question Description
Is Robotics a separate major in MS of Mechanical Engineering?
Answer

The course structure for Mechanical Engineering can be different for different university. However, robotics is separate major in Mechanical Engineering which includes following subjects:

The mechanics of robots: comprising kinematics, dynamics, trajectories
Planar, spherical, and spatial transformations and displacements

Representing orientation: Euler angles, angle-axis, and quaternion

Velocity and acceleration: the Jacobian and screw theory

Inverse kinematics: solvability and singularities

Trajectory planning: joint interpolation and Cartesian trajectories

Statics of serial chain mechanisms

Inertial parameters, Newton-Euler equations, D'Alembert's principle

Recursive forward and inverse dynamics

For information on Mechanical Engineering majors at particular university, I suggest you to search for your required information in their website because most of the universities have all detailed information about their course structure in their websites.
