Engineer the Next Robot

Robotics engineering is a multi-disciplinary field that encompasses skills from several engineering areas including electrical, computer, and mechanical engineering as well as computer science. Robotics involves many leading-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence, deep learning, image and video processing, electronics, control algorithms, industrial automation, hydraulics, pneumatics, and newly developed navigation methods for robotic systems. Although robotics is often portrayed as an emerging technology, it is actually a well-established field that includes many areas of recent growth. Robotics includes many exciting applications such as autonomous vehicles, drones, undersea exploration, industrial manufacturing operations, space exploration, robotic surgery, nanorobotics, and agriculture.
