Overview

The field of robotics engineering is growing fast. In fact, U.S. News & World Report included robotics in its “Hot College Majors” list, noting it’s expected to create 2 to 3.5 million new jobs by the year 2020. That’s why our program integrates concepts from computer programming, mechanical and electronics engineering, digital electronics, and circuit theory to provide a comprehensive education.

At the Robotics Engineering program of Johnson & Wales University students have the academic advantage of enhancing their math skills during their first year through specialized math classes. Then in year two, they move on to advanced math courses. In addition, you’ll learn skills in circuit analysis, robotic hardware design, software development for real-time applications and programming techniques, just to mention a few key areas.

If you like to build robots to compete, you can join the JWU Vex Robotics Club. This year, they ranked 21st in their division and earned the Create Award at the Vex Robotics World Championship in Louisville, Kentucky.
