DescriptionThis four-year degree program prepares students for a career in the field of automation and robotics. Autonomous and remotely operated systems are deployed the world over with ever-increasing frequency. Such systems are being implemented in many instances to reduce risk to human workers, to achieve higher efficiencies in manufacturing and to improve the quality of lives through robot-assisted rehabilitation and care. Variations of these systems are often in place for reasons of feasibility, efficiency, safety or practicality. Traditionally, in order to develop such systems, collaborative expertise and knowledge in aspects of mechanical and electrical engineering as well as computer science is necessary. Through a combination of these three fields of engineering, students of this program acquire the theoretical and applied expertise to succeed in the field of automation and robotics.
