Robotics engineers design and develop robotic equipment. Their duties may include designing and developing prototypes, providing technical and troubleshooting support, calculating cost estimation, and maintaining documentation. Demand is expected to increase much faster than the average rate over the next decade. This high level of growth stems from the need for automation specialists as an increasing number of industries adopt robots. Typical job qualifications include a bachelor’s or master’s degree in computer engineering or electrical engineering, as well as experience in software development.
