Prospective Students and Visitors

Berkeley students

Graduate students: Please take a look at some of our publications. From there, contact Lab Director Prof. Pieter Abbeel.

Undergraduate students: Please email Lab Director Prof. Pieter Abbeel your resume, your (unofficial) transcript, and 2 paragraphs on why you want to get involved. As a general guideline: while there are no hard specs, your chances of being able to get involved are higher the more of the following hold true: You have contributed to a substantial project in the past (e.g., prior work experience, or perhaps some large personal projects); You have a GPA of 3.9 or higher; You have done particularly well in some particularly hard classes; You are able to commit 15+ hours/week; You are available full-time over summer; You have a strong background in computer science (and ideally also a good amount of math).

Outside students

If you want to become a Ph.D. student in my group, you should apply through the EECS Ph.D. admissions process: EECS graduate admissions. Please make sure to apply to CS, and within CS to AI. I very much look forward to hearing from you __after__ you have been admitted. Best of luck with your applications!
