What is a Robotics Engineer?
A robotics engineer is a technical designer tasked with creating robotic systems in many different industries and environments. Such systems are designed to assist or replace human effort to make workplaces safer and/or more efficient. Robotic systems are also employed in homes, places of education, in warfare, search and rescue, and many other environments. A robotics engineer will design robots needed to solve problems in these environments and some engineers will also participate in the assembly and manufacture of the machines they have designed.

What does a Robotics Engineer do?

A robotics engineer will use research to determine the exact make-up of a particular robot to address the problems it is being created to solve. Robots are complex software/hardware systems that require an interdisciplinary approach to design, build, configure and test. Software systems have to be designed or modified from existing designs and integrated into hardware that will be functional and economical. So part of the job of a robotics engineer will be evaluating prototypes they have created in terms of function, cost estimations, and other design calculations that need to be made to produce an economical and functional system.
This can be a dynamic job with time at the computer doing research, writing papers, and sketching design ideas, to time in the lab creating components, models, prototypes and testing those experiments. Much of this work will be done in teams, with budgets and deadlines and a combination of structured and unstructured work.

What are the education requirements for a robotics engineer?

To enter the field you will need at least a bachelor’s degree typically in an engineering discipline, computer science, mathematics, or a physical science  with further postgraduate degrees like a master’s degree in robotics engineering itself.

What do you need personally to be a Robotics Engineer?

  • Curiosity – Curious about how things work and wanting to create things that work better than what we have today.
  • Communication – You will often have to write reports, papers, work in teams, and so being a good communicator will be essential.
  • Hands On Problem Solving – Working with complex problems and evaluating the best options and solutions is at the core of this job. This will also involve understanding systems and how the systems you create change in various conditions and operational environments.
  • Patience – This is a job of lots of trial and error and therefore you will need patience through the process of creating a system that works.
