what degree do i need to obtain to become a robotics engineer?
I took a robotics class in elementary class and built a robot and enjoyed the experience #technology #robotics
I recently toured robotics labs at Georgia Tech as part of National Robotics Week, and we had the opportunity to learn about how students in a variety of degree programs were working with robots including physics and mechanical engineering.
You can learn more about the event and the robots here--> http://robotics.gatech.edu/outreach/NRW
In my experience, robotics is a very vast field which could encompass many other subjects like electronics, electrical, computers /programming & mechanical engineering. At a minimum, bachelor of science (BS) degree would be the one to go for. There are universities that now confer BS in robotics.
You can try it out with online classes on robotic engineering at Udacity and complete a certification. This would be less costly.
