Robotics engineering is the division of engineering science and technology of robots. It includes the manufacture, functions, design and structural disposition of robots. Robotics engineering is a sub-field of mechanical engineering. Robotics engineers usually design robots and develop new applications for them to make them functional in a broad range of industries. Robots are used in industries for speeding up the manufacturing process. Robots are also used in variety of fields such as sea-exploration, servicing of transmission electric signals, nuclear science and designing of bio-medical equipments.


A qualified robotics engineer can apply his mastery in varied fields such as nano-technology, surgery, modern warfare and space-exploration. In present world robots are replacing humans where conditions are hazardous, tedious and manipulative in industrial units, space ships, atomic plants, mines and deep-sea vessels. The computerization of work through robotics has greatly increased productivity.
