What is Robotics?


机器人技术是一个致力于设计的工程领域, producing, operating, and improving robots — intelligent machines with human capabilities or characteristics. 机器人程序包括几个学科:机械, electrical, computer, 工业与制造工程, computer science, system design, and data analysis. As a robotics student, 你还将学习计算机视觉, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality.

Robotics is creating new possibilities across industries and fields: they are essential components of assembly lines, 他们在战斗中帮助保护军事人员, 他们甚至协助手术. 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. 例如,达美乐和Nuro最近测试了一个 自动驾驶披萨外卖机器人.

Why Learn Robotics?


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, people or countries face. Robotics courses teach you how to apply your strengths in science, math and computer science to engineer machines that improve our lives and work.


Since they are interdisciplinary and applicable to countless settings, 机器人课程为你的职业生涯做准备. 研发自动驾驶半车队. 为一部动作电影编写特技机器人背后的“大脑”. 为家庭助理机器人设计控制装置. 学习机器人技术可以帮助你朝着这些角色和其他角色努力, combining mechanical, 电气和计算机工程概念.

Robotics Careers

The robotics field is continuously evolving and full of possibilities for students interested in how machines work, AI, 编程与技术. 看看下面列出的一些机器人领域的顶级职业.

Robotics Engineer

Design, assemble, test and reconfigure robots for a variety of contexts. Robotics engineers help bring blueprints and designs for robots to life, 设计原型和模拟机器人的功能. 这些工程师在几个行业工作, including manufacturing, healthcare, defense, agriculture, 汽车甚至航空航天. Explore Kettering’s B.S. in Engineering


设计并建造机器人的物理结构, hardware and components, including joints, motors, 变速箱和其他物理部件. Mechanical engineers are crucial at every stage of a robot’s life — they model, create, 组装和测试新的和现有的机器人系统. Responsibilities also include research, collaboration with a team of engineers and simulation.

Software Engineer

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.


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.



The best robotics programs create opportunities for applying what you’ve learned in the classroom. Kettering is proud to offer you opportunities to design, program and test robots in state-of-the-art research labs.
