Understand the growing role of robotics in energy sustainability and healthcare.

Robotics Engineering Technology

This is one of three majors offered in the Purdue Polytechnic Institute for students who seek to contribute at the intersection between manufacturing, electrical, mechanical, and computing areas in primarily industrial environments.

When you major in robotics engineering technology, you will develop and apply robotic solutions to a broad range of industrial and consumer problems. Robots help people and companies be more productive and safer, and they help explore more frontiers.

One of my favorite things about my program is how classes are structured – not lectures all week, but mixed with labs. This structure builds relationships with team members in class and at the end of 16 weeks you just don’t get a grade. You get great friends!
