I'm currently designing the controller software for a robot called the Autonomous Robot Mk 1, or AR-1.  The video linked below shows a MATLAB/Simmechanics simulation of the controller in action.  My intent is to build an open source machine as cheaply as possible, but with sophisticated behavior, like dynamic walking,  as demonstrated here. 

I just got the controller functioning as a proof of concept, so have a look and stay tuned for updates!

First, what exactly is involved in this particular robotics degree? Is it an engineering degree? Computer science? Unfortunately, a degree in robotics is not as well defined as some other more traditional degrees...

Also, what kind of school is it? What kind of accreditation? What kind of reputation does the school have? All of those things will make it easier or harder to get that first job.

But, having said that - the skill set necessary for robotics can be applied in any number of industries. Industrial robotics is an obvious choice. Lots of work being done in bio-medical areas - from replacement limbs to rehabilitation devices. The auto industry is moving towards self driving vehicles - robotics skill set, right? Aerospace too.

What do you see yourself working on? (Probably one of the hardest questions to answer for most students when you really don't know what your options are and what the jobs will really be like.)

Sorry to bother again but my problem was not solved with the link from above :(
I can't find any of the compounds ...microchip's on that link ...strange database they have !
For example i give you :
cheertek CT908B 438G6A20328105CFBE
(which is a microchip from a dvd player board ),maybe you can help me ...?

Hi!
I don't know much about the other courses you listed, but I also am planning on applying to robotics programs. I found one that I really like at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). They have an undergraduate program that allows you to get a b.s and m.s in robotics engineering in five years.  Thought you might be interested.
Good luck in your search! :)

I was thinking about going into robotics in college. There is a five year program I found in which you would get your b.s. and m.s.  I was wondering if that is worth it and what kind of jobs could I get afterwords?

One more question about the above topic !
Mister (waltr),how can i rewrite the Microchips who was removed from different electronical devices boards ...one by one before soldering them one the new board ??? ...or i can write them after my new board is manufactured,soldered with all of the electronical components ?


You need to read the data sheets and app notes on Microchip's parts. Its all there:

Thank you so much for the answer ! I m just a real beginner and i just received  a big stock of various electronic devices...so i think is the time to use them and to learn in the same time. I start already to build the mechanical part of my 3D printer (model delta) and now i m at the hard part...electronics :)

Your answer is really helping me !

Do you mean a Microchip manufacture's PIC processor?
It can be reused, re-programmed, only if it can be Erased and then reprogrammed. Look up the part number stamped on the part and read it's data sheet to find out.
