Career In Robotics Engineering

Are you fascinated by Robots and want to know how they work? What are the mechanisms behind Robots?

If the answer is “Yes” then you can explore your career in the “Robotics Engineering”.

“Robotics Engineering is a field of engineering which deals with the construction, design, application and operation of robots. Robotics Engineering is an interdisciplinary branch of electrical engineering & mechanical engineering“.

A professional designer who is responsible for creating robots and robotic systems is called a “Robotics Engineer”.

What are Robots?

Robots are those machines which are able to execute the duties that humans are either unable or prefer not to complete. Some robots are manufactured to do jobs which are hazardous to people like exploring mines, defusing bombs, etc.

The word ‘Robot’ derives from the Czech word “robota,” which means forced work or labor. The mechanism behind robots is called “Robotics”.

robotics engineering

Robotics research engineers design robotic systems and research methods to manufacture them in a cost effective manner.

The fully autonomous robots were appeared in the second half of the 20th century. The Isaac Asimov a science fiction writer created his “Three Laws of Robotics” in the year 1942.

A robotics engineer is required to have knowledge in mechanical engineering, kinematics and dynamics, electrical and electronics engineering, control systems and software engineering.
