Robotics engineers develop autonomous or remotely controlled robots to carry out tasks more efficiently or more safely than a human. Robotics engineers could have a background in a number of different engineering fields, but many employers prefer job applicants with backgrounds in robotics, mechatronic, electrical or mechanical engineering.

Market Demand

The trend for zero-labour in assembly lines will support the demand for robotics / mechatronic engineers who can help design, create and maintain these technologies. More and more companies are getting interested in robotic technologies that will help streamline their manufacturing processes. The zero-labour trend does not mean that factories or companies will not employ any humans but this means that they will scale down the size of workers and increase reliance on robotic technologies and smart robots.

Education

To become a robotics engineer, a candidate must have a bachelor’s degree in mechanical, robotics, electrical or mechatronic engineering from a reputable engineering programme. The list of engineering programmes accredited by the Board of Engineers Malaysia can be viewed here. Some of the core modules will include development and integration of intelligent sensors, actuators and micro systems; advanced decision making and control strategies.
