The Undergrad College Finder is a great way to commence your journey to your dream University for your Bachelors. You just have to enter your Test Scores (SAT/ACT scores, average of your scores in High School) and fill your Academic Profile (name of the Board and latest Institute attended) and thereafter get a specially curated list of the 12 Universities for your profile, classified under Ambitious, Target & Safe.Read More
You can register online or by phone or by mail. The detailed information about registering for the GRE can be found at www.yocket.in
Extracurriculars are always an add-on to your profile. Any achievements at the state or national and international level are considered important. Working for social causes such as for an NGO or charity trusts on a regular basis
Robots are replacing humans in labour tasks and automation is taking over. Inversely, design, implementation and management of these robots is employing humans on a great scale. Safe to say that robots are still controlled by humans (not so much in the future, according to Elon Musk). Robotics is a booming industry; it includes specialisation subjects like Nano-robotics, Space robotics, Bio-Cybernetics, Artificial Intelligence machines, legged locomotion- the list goes on.
Students applying for MS in Robotics or the Robotics track to universities such as MIT USA, CMU etc, generally have a background in Mechanical Engineering, Automobiles, Computer Science or Computer Engineering, or Electronics. However, those from other backgrounds can be seen applying for it as well.
Some of the best universities to pursue such specialisations in robotics or, in other words, an MS degree, include:
The career prospects that the varied programmes in the field of robotics attracts are job opportunities such as:
Robotics Engineer broadly design and test robots using knowledge about mechanical and electrical engineering skills. They are engaged research and development of autonomous robots for new applications in industry. They also employ computer-aided design and drafting (CADD) as well as computer-aided manufacturing (CAM) systems to manufacture, test and configure robotic systems. Robotics engineers are recruited in a vast multitude of industries, such as military, private robot manufacturers, medical industry, gaming industry, entertainment industry, space research organisations, automobile industry, etc. The job growth is comparatively slower than the average. According to PayScale, the median starting salary for robotics engineer in the U.S. is around $80,000
This job requires programming the robots, developing and validating the automated processes, and configuring systems integration with latest robotic technology. Robotic programmers are very much in demand and the job is new to the industry. The skills required involve knowledge of digital electronics and circuits. The average starting salary for robot programmer in U.S. is $62,400.
Robotics technicians maintain and fix operational problems or failures in robotic systems and equipment. They inspect facilities and train or assist other people. Programming and testing these systems to maximise efficiency in the facility. The median starting salary in U.S. for robotics technicians is $54,379.
People in this position design and develop software systems and algorithms for Robot perception, sensor calibration, autonomous navigation or remote monitoring and control. It also involves keeping track of developing software in synchronisation with the hardware components. This is another popular job position in the recent times with openings from companies like Mitsubishi Electric Automation, Bossa Nova Robotics and Amazon
Other jobs include those of Deep Learning Engineer for Robots (who develop novel perception and AI algorithms for robots), robot operators, software developers, and sales engineers. On the other hand, job prospects and availability depend on various factors, the location being a major one. General Electric, NASA, and IBM are some of the other recruiters employing robotics graduates.
