What is the scope of robotics engineers?

Robotics is and always has been a very hot branch of science. Robots have always fascinated us!

Although robots have certain limitations in the way they are manufactured, humans can perfectly use them depending on the desired applications. Robotics has come a long way and new discoveries or developments never end, so there is always a need for innovation and development in the field of robotics. Actually, it is not a separate field, but it is more versatile and it is a combination of the main branches.

Although robots have certain limitations in the way they are manufactured, humans can perfectly use them depending on the desired applications. Robotics has come a long way and new discoveries or developments never end, so there is always a need for innovation and development in the field of robotics. Actually, it is not a separate field, but it is more versatile and it is a combination of the main branches.

Okay, in regards to your question, here are some fields with the applications where robots play an important role.

1) Industrial robots in the manufacturing process

2) Aerospace robots in outer space exploration

3) Health industry for "robotic surgery"

4) Military robots for the best and worst purposes.

Now you can see what the scope is. The sky is the limit. I have only indicated the main fields of application, they are also used / will be used for human life assistance, as a receptionist, as a personal health assistant, etc.

Companies like NASA, DARPA, SpaceX, and many others working in the aforementioned fields definitely need robotic engineers!

Robots can be very complex systems, so engineers in many technical areas are involved with robots, which is why they can be called "robot engineers".

  • Mechanical engineers who work on the mechanical parts of robots;
  • Electrical engineers specialized in electric motors;
  • Electronic engineers working on analog power drives (for motors), digital microcontrollers, communication systems, etc.
  • Control engineers developing (digital) control algorithms for moving robot parts;
  • Applied mathematicians, statisticians, computer scientists developing special algorithms for computer (robot) vision, artificial intelligence

  • Materials / Chemical engineers working on robot construction materials (e.g. for underwater work, for work in hazardous environments, etc.)
  • Aeronautical / aerospace engineers who work on "flying robots" (drones, helicopters ...) or "space robots" (Mars rovers or lunar rovers, for example).

The "mechatronic engineer" was already mentioned in previous answers, but in my humble opinion, it is easier for specialized engineers like those mentioned above to deal with today's complex robotic systems; the mechatronics engineer has a (too) broad and not very specialized training, so in general he will not fit in a deep technical job (perhaps he fits well in management and liaison positions in projects that involve many people and institutions).
