Robotics engineers desperately wanted
Computer science, electrical and mechanical engineering – interdisciplinarity not only characterises robotics training, but also the professional environment entered into afterwards. The main focus, however, is on software skills. This includes, for example, machine learning and seeing. Although there is often talk of robotics 'specialists', robotics engineers are in fact generalists in the true sense, with a broad technical background and well developed interdisciplinary skills.
Even today, companies are already desperately looking for robotics engineers and experienced personnel to develop and integrate applied and intelligent robotic systems. This is the demand FHWS aims to meet with its own, unique bachelor's degree programme in robotics, which has been newly conceptualised from the ground up. This robotics programme is unique in Germany: No other undergraduate programme is so comprehensively focused on the software engineering aspects of robotics. It can be assumed that robotics engineers have the same potential for a successful career in robotics as computer scientists have in computer science.
Guaranteed employment and great earning potential
The diversity of robotic systems and their innumerable applications offer budding robotics engineers a multitude of employment prospects. Even today, the demand for trained robotics engineers exceeds labour market supply. It can be expected that, with the rising deployment of robots, demand will continue to outstrip supply. In the medium and long term, robotics therefore offers guaranteed employment with competitive remuneration in a secure professional field.
