Find out more information about Robotics

Robotics is defined as the field of computer science and engineering that deals with the design, construction, operation, and application of robots. Robots are automated machines that can assist humans in a variety of settings, from manufacturing processes, to working in critical conditions, unsuitable for human life. Robotics specialists aim to achieve diverse tasks by designing mechanical devices, able to complete them intelligently. Robotics is related to other science sub-fields such as computer science, character animation, machine design, cognitive science, bio-mechanics. Main sub-divisions of robotics include: android science, artificial intelligence, nano-robotics, robot surgery.

Studying robotics, students will acquire information related to computer graphics, gadgetry, mobile robot programming, robotic motion methods, mathematical algorithms, social implications of technology, and more. Apart from learning specific scientific methods, graduates will gain skills that involve mathematical thinking but also artistic vision. Robotics will prepare specialists in competencies such as technology design, programming, repairing and installing equipment for machines, etc.

Career paths in robotics cover a large subject palette, from medicine to engineering and IT. Robotics graduates usually engage in jobs as laboratory assistants, testing technicians, quality assurance staff, programmers, systems controllers, or researchers.

Suggested Masters in Robotics

M.Sc. Machine Learning

Machine Learning is a scientific discipline focused on the development of algorithms that spot patterns or make predictions from empirical data. This Machine Learning programme is offered at the KTH Royal Institute of Technology.

Sweden
M.Sc. Robot Cognition

In the Master's in Robot Cognition you’ll learn how to endow a robot with a processing architecture that allows it to interact effectively with its environment, given its limited resources. You’ll also develop and test computational models that mimic development of cognitive processes in children. Gaining a new perspective on human cognition, you will also finish with skills and knowledge for creating effective robots.
