A bachelor's degree in engineering or a related field which is of four years duration is required for most entry-level positions in robotics engineering. Robotics being an inter-disciplinary course invites students who have completed their graduation in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, instrumentation engineering or computer engineering with an interest in robotics and artificial intelligence. Most colleges or universities offer robotics engineering as specialisation of other engineering degrees rather than as a stand alone program. However now there are universities that offer robotics engineering degrees as itself.

For advancement in positions you need a master's degree or PhD. A PhD is required to teach in this field as well as for most high-level research positions. A master's degree requires two years, while a PhD takes three to five years to complete.

A course in robotics trains and educates a student in the field of artificial intelligence, computer-aided manufacturing, computer integrated manufacturing system, computational geometry, robot motion planning, digital electronics and micro processing.

Personal attributes

Like engineers in other disciplines, robotics engineers must be able to work well as team members. They must be able to communicate their ideas effectively. Those entering this field should have an aptitude for mathematics, physics, chemistry, and electronics. They should also be skilled in using computers. Robotics engineers must be familiar with logic, microprocessors and computer programming so that they can design the right robot for each application. Along with the technical know-how, interest in research is essential in this field. For this Robotics engineers must continually upgrade their technical knowledge to keep abreast of new developments in this rapidly changing field.


Salary for robotic engineers is concerned at par with most of the other demanding engineering professions as supply is less, compared to demand. Earnings vary depending on the experience of the robotics engineer, the location, and the kind of job.

In India, one can expect a starting salary of Rs 5-6 lakhs per annum for a fresher. Benefits usually include paid holidays and vacations, health insurance
