Skills Required for Robotics Engineers

 Robotics is an interdisciplinary field that has a varied degree of study. 

What does a Robotics Engineer do?

The first step is Mechanical Design; giving the robot capabilities of powerful and precise movement. For instance, the highly advanced robots used in healthcare and automobile industries.

The second step is Electronics; bringing these robots with powerful physical capabilities to life using cutting-edge circuitry.

Next learn IoT so robots can communicate with each other.
