Robotics and Embedded Systems Degree at University of Advancing Technology

DESIGN TOMORROW’S ROBOTICS

The world we interact in and the technology we use every day are built upon the foundation of embedded systems. University of Advancing Technology’s (UAT) Robotics and Embedded Systems degree provides students the engineering foundation for the design, implementation and analysis of embedded systems, with an emphasis in autonomous robotic systems.

Building upon the foundation of software engineering, a degree in Robotics and Embedded Systems can span mechanical design, digital logic design, embedded programming, machine vision and adaptive algorithm development and design of autonomous robotic systems. Students will implement microprocessors and learn to optimize robotics technology using digital hardware design, software programming, and digital and analog circuit design analysis. Students will also apply knowledge of transducers, actuators, and advanced software development to mechanically design and engineer as well as analyze advanced robotics technology and embedded systems.

With technology advancing rapidly, a robotics degree allows you to be at the forefront of the world’s top business and government efforts. With the completion of this robotics and mechanical engineering degree, you will gain the ability to build, develop, implement and analyze the world’s most advanced technologies and make an impact on the advancing electronic and robotic world.
