Top 10 Colleges for Robotics Engineering

Gallery-Top 10 Colleges for Robotics Engineering

This well-regarded engineering college in Colorado is considered a top school for robotics education.
Whether you want to design the next R2D2 or help automate the factory, these schools are considered the best to learn robotics systems.

Robotics has long been considered a technology of the future, but that future is increasingly now as robots now routinely handle many laborious tasks in industrial workplaces. Robots also now serve as self-learning vacuum cleaners and in some countries, have become order takers at fast-food restaurants.

To meet the growing need for skilled robotics engineers, some of nation’s leading STEM schools have beefed up their course offerings in robotics. The course curriculums cover both the hardware and software aspects of designing and implementing robotics systems, and while the number of students specializing in this area are small compared to larger engineering disciplines such as mechanical or electrical engineering, their numbers could increase as demand grows.

College Factual has compiled a ranking of the top schools to study robotics, which Design News is listing below.
