The Introduction to Robotics Specialization introduces you to the concepts of robot flight and movement, how robots perceive their environment, and how they adjust their movements to avoid obstacles, navigate difficult terrains and accomplish complex tasks such as construction and disaster recovery. You will be exposed to real world examples of how robots have been applied in disaster situations, how they have made advances in human health care and what their future capabilities will be. The courses build towards a capstone in which you will learn how to program a robot to perform a variety of movements such as flying and grasping objects.

Robotics Career Outlook and Salary Opportunities

We are building a team of professionals

Robotics is a branch of engineering which deals with the making of robots. Robots are programmed machines which are able to carry out tasks autonomously or semi- autonomously for the better working of the company. It involves designing, building and programming of psychical robots, to troubleshoot the problems in various domains of operations and manufacturing. This is very useful in fields including transportation, manufacturing, production, medical, army, etc. It is an interdisciplinary branch of mechanical and electrical engineering.

Robotics Engineer can work in space research organizations like ISRO, NASA, etc, which makes uses of robotic technology and Artificial Intelligence.

Robots are majorly used in surgery and rehabilitation sector of medicine. They also specialize in human treatment through therapeutic robotic devices.

Robotics engineers build, design and test robotic systems and software for private companies for the automization of the activities of a company.

Robotics specialists are sought after in the gaming industry, making video games enthralling the audience with artificial intelligence embedded with robotics.

Robots are widely used in investigation agencies and police departments. They use artificial intelligence and robots to detect hazardous material like bombs and even defuse them.

Robots are also used in banking sector for managing operations, stocks, etc.
