About this career

Robotics is an interdisciplinary branch of Engineering and Science that includes mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer science, and others.

Robotics deals with the design, construction, operation, and use of robots, as well as computer systems for their control, sensory feedback, and information processing.

Robotics Engineer Day-to-day duties

  • Building, configuring, and testing robots
  • Designing software systems to control their robotic systems, such as those robots used for manufacturing
  • Designing automated robotic systems that are used to increase the production and precision levels within a specific industry
  • Analyzing and evaluating the prototypes and robotic systems they have created. This is generally a never-ending task, since technology is constantly changing and advancing
  • Reviewing and approving cost estimates and design calculations
  • Serving as technical support for the robotic systems they have created
  • Teaching plans paths to robots
  • Performing research into the design, operation and performance of robotic mechanism components or systems

These skills will help you to reach this career
