Unrelated research experience


Recommended Posts

Hi guys,


If you have research experience in field A, how relevant is it when you apply for a grad program in field B.


where field A and field B are quite different ( Software Engineering and Robotics )


Could the research experience be harmful in such a case ?

Research experience will never be harmful. Any type of research that you get will be valuable. If you can show that you know how to do research in CS (via good rec letters from research advisers, publications, etc), then you will be good. If you have a strong profile and have good grades in all of your CS courses, then the committees should see that as being about as good as research experience in the specific area of CS that you write about in your statement of purpose.
