Go Beyond Human Limits in Cutting-Edge 机器人 项目

From helping package our food and assembling automobiles to exploring the ocean’s depths and navigating the surface of the moon, robotics is now an integral part of our lives — and our future. Mimicking human behavior but offering unique abilities, robots have helped us accomplish things that once seemed beyond our reach.

If you want to know how robots work behind the scenes and advancements like the Mars exploration rovers, 自动驾驶汽车, and aerial drones are exciting to you, learning robotics could be the next step toward your career.


Science and Engineering Meet Computer Science and AI

机器人 is a field of engineering dedicated to designing, 生产, 操作, and improving robots — intelligent machines with human capabilities or characteristics. 机器人 programs encompass several disciplines: mechanical, 电, 电脑, industrial and manufacturing engineering, 计算机科学, 系统设计, 数据分析. 作为一个机器人专业的学生, you’ll also study 电脑 vision, 人工智能, 以及虚拟现实.

机器人 is creating new possibilities across industries and fields: they are essential components of assembly lines, they help defend military personnel in combat, and they even assist in surgeries. Robots are found harvesting crops, automating warehouses, and performing search-and-rescue missions. While early robots had mostly repetitive applications and were primarily limited to manufacturing within the automotive industry, today’s sophisticated robots are more autonomous and can assist in foodservice and transportation. For example, Domino’s and Nuro recently tested a self-driving pizza delivery robot.


Exercise Creativity—And Help Solve Problems

Whether you want to invent something new or improve existing technologies, robotics programs prepare you to live out your passion for creativity and address challenges businesses, 人们或国家面临. 机器人 courses teach you how to apply your strengths in science, math and 计算机科学 to engineer machines that improve our lives and work.

Pursue a Wide Range of 职业生涯 

Since they are interdisciplinary and applicable to countless settings, robotics programs prepare you for numerous careers. Work on self-driving semi fleets. Program the “brain” behind the stunt bot for an action movie. Design the controls for a robotic home assistant. Learning robotics helps you work toward these roles and others, 结合机械, 电 and 电脑 engineering concepts.


The robotics field is continuously evolving and full of possibilities for students interested in how machines work, AI, programming and technology. Check out some of the top careers in robotics listed below.


Design, assemble, test and reconfigure robots for a variety of contexts. 机器人 engineers help bring blueprints and designs for robots to life, designing prototypes and simulating a robot’s functions. These engineers work in several industries, 包括制造业, 医疗保健, 国防, 农业, automotive and even aerospace. 探索凯特林的B.S. 在工程

Mechanical (or Hardware) Engineer 

Design and construct a robot’s physical structure, 硬件和组件, 包括关节, 汽车, gearboxes and other physical parts. Mechanical engineers are crucial at every stage of a robot’s life — they model, 创建, assemble and test both new and existing robotic systems. Responsibilities also include research, collaboration with a team of engineers and simulation.


Work behind the scenes on the key component of robots: their intelligence. Software engineers in robotics programs troubleshoot and develop software and technology applications that allow robots to function. They’re responsible for controls, software integration and putting designs into code.

项目 for Students Interested in Learning 机器人

Because this field is multidisciplinary, you can learn robotics in various engineering programs. Choosing a robotics concentration allows you to specialize in the field, but you’ll also learn skills and concepts you can apply in a robotics career in the following programs.
