Bachelor of Science in Robotics Engineering
There has never been a better time to enter the exciting field of robotics.
With the rebirth of the automotive industry, rapid advancements in technology, and the opening of new markets around the globe, the demand for robots, co-robots, and highly skilled robotics engineers is on the rise – and expected to grow well into the 21st century.
Imagine yourself being at the forefront of this technological revolution. With Lawrence Technological University’s Bachelor of Science in Robotics Engineering, you’ll not only be well-positioned to hit the ground running early in your career, but you’ll also gain the background and experience needed to face the challenges presented by this cutting-edge field.
An ever-evolving discipline, robotics engineering goes beyond designing and building remote controlled machines and tethered robot arms. Today, robotics plays a role in nearly every aspect of our lives. Robotics engineers find employment opportunities in a wide variety of industries, including agriculture, aeronautical and aerospace, automotive, chemical, defense, energy, food and beverage, health care, pharmaceutical, material processing and handling, manufacturing, marine, medical, mining, and nuclear.
Robotics engineers may design and maintain robots, develop new applications for robots, or conduct research to expand the application of robots. They have to be well-versed in the world of systems engineering as well as possess the versatility to design and build a “human-like” system, consisting of control algorithms that represent the brain of the product, sensing and actuating schemes that simulate the nerves and muscles, and a mechanical system that makes up the skeleton of the design. Lawrence Tech’s faculty, all of whom bring current experience to the classroom, understand the complexity of this rapidly developing field, and are dedicated to helping you build the foundation you need to either enter the field after graduation or continue your studies.
