ROBOTICS: CAREER OPTIONS
Information provided by our Careers & Employability Service
Glen, our Careers Adviser for Robotics, says:
"This programme converts school leavers and career changers into professional engineers. Every industry competes through innovation and improving productivity. Robotics graduates are uniquely well prepared to design and develop integrated mechanical, electronic, control and computing systems, because of their overlapping expertise and skills in these traditionally separate disciplines.
"Robotics graduates can compete effectively for roles the automotive and aerospace industries, deep sea exploration and extraction, commercial fields such as food manufacture, pharmaceutical production and medicine. Many Plymouth robotics graduates also enter roles in specialised engineering fields."
Visit the Plymouth University Careers website for more information on any of these areas, or call in to see the Careers & Employability Team in Gateway in the Roland Levinsky Building.
Skills you can develop during this course include:
- Engineering design and prototyping
- Problem solving
- Commercial awareness
- Data analysis
- Clear communication
Beyond developing your skills, studying robotics will change you as a person. Students typically become increasingly driven and achievement oriented as they build on practical successes during the course. Our graduates are able to take the initiative and project a resilient professional image, based on their existing technical knowledge - and confidence in their ability to understand new and unfamiliar technical information and challenges.
