With the advancement of computer science and related research technologies, robotics jobs are gaining more popularity. Use of robots is expected to increase in the near future, from production line robots to experimental robotics for the medical, military, and automotive industries, the future of robotics engineering will certainly offer a range of opportunities for professionals entering the field.

There are various specialisations even in robotics. Specialising in design and control in robotics is close to mechanical engineering. If you want to specialise in control and hardware design of robots, a B.Tech. degree in Electrical or Electronics or Electronics and Communication Engineering is the best-suited qualification. B.Tech. Computer Engineers can look at hardware design in robotics. The control part of the robot is all about certain aspects electrical engineering.

Robotics engineering may lead to potential career opportunities in manufacturing, research and engineering, agriculture, mining, space exploration, power-plant maintenances and a variety of other areas. Besides, there is great scope for qualified experts and researchers to associate themselves with different segments of R & D in robotics. Today's gaming industry is possibly providing the most enjoyable variation of the kind of intelligence provided by robotics. Games like X- Box, PCs, and PlayStation etc. are putting this extensively to use. High-precision robotic jobs such as welding and riveting also require the use of robots. They are also put to use in special situations that would be dangerous for humans like cleaning toxic wastes or exploring dreadful places like under water exploration. Fields so diverse as surgery, modern warfare and nanotechnology have also shown a remarkable increase recently in their demand for technical experts and researches in robotics. Most robotics engineers are employed by private robot manufacturers or robot users. Some engineers work in military and space programs. Others work for colleges and universities or vocational schools.

Robotics engineers who work for robot manufacturers are sometimes called robotics test engineers or automation system engineers. These engineers apply the robotic system to a particular use on a manufacturing assembly line. They also create an integrated environment between people and machinery. Robotics engineers can advance to management positions and become robotics managers or directors of automation. Some robotics engineers advance by moving into robot sales or by starting their own robotics consulting firms.

A candidate having an M.E. degree in Robotics can get job opportunities in space research organizations like ISRO and also in industries which manufacture microchips. Job opportunities also exist in Indian Institute of Technology for doing extensive research work in artificial intelligence. Furthermore, The Indian Institute of Chemical Biology offers openings for research fellowships in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence. NASA is the ultimate job destination for those interested in applying robotics to space science. In India, organisations like BHEL, BARC, ISRO and DRDO besides other companies like Tata and Jindals do recruit robotic engineers. Abroad, the scope for career advancement is abundant. Companies like Intel recruit robotics and artificial intelligence specialists for microchip manufacturing. The Robotics Industrial Association in North America provide job opportunities in robot manufacturing and maintenance systems integration. Research fellowships as an intern with ATR, the premier research institute emphasizing on humanoid robotics and computational neuroscience is also available.
