• Why Take Robotics I and II

    These courses are for students interested in Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering and will give you a chance to explore if you like the work that will be done in these majors and occupations.

    There are limited programs in actual robotics available so these are the majors that have the most opportunity in robotics. Sophomores can take these courses so if you are sincerely interested in these fields this is a great place to start. The primary focus in on programming. Robotics is programming. For most robotic systems the work in the software will out weigh the work hardwork 10 to 1. To give you a idea of this, here is and article on the F-35 produced in Fort Worth. There are eight million lines of code that support the aircraft. Yes, there are mechanical and aeronautical engineers doing the design, but the designs are built in the software.

    Here is a link to the "Major in Computer Science" page at Colorado State University it lists the areas of work and core courses for computer science.

    Great computer skills are necessary to solve he problems that face society today. 

    Here is the link to the "Major in Mechanical Engineering" page at Colorado State University it lists the areas of work and core courses for Mechanical Engineering.

     Both are great careers for students interesed in solving problems and working hard. These are not easy majors.
