The world we interact in every day and the technology we utilize are built upon the foundation of embedded systems. University of Advancing Technology’s 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.

At UAT, students will learn to optimize robotics technology using digital hardware design, software programming, and digital and analog circuit design analysis. Students will apply knowledge of transducers, actuators, and advanced software development to design, engineer, and analyze advanced robotics technology and embedded systems.

With a robotics degree, students will be at the forefront of the world’s top business and government programs. After the completion of UAT’s Robotics and Embedded Systems degree, students will have the ability to build, develop, implement and analyze advanced robotics technologies for a career path to advance the electronic and robotics industry.
