school help.. sort of
« on: September 16, 2012, 03:32:10 PM »
hello guys , this is my first post on this website so go easy on me....

i am currently a 3rd year university student (undergrad) that is majoring in finance/marketing. After some internships and talking to people in the field of i-banking and trading i realized that this is not a type of field that i would like to stay in for the long term, the long hours added to a toxic environment would not make the money worth it.

What i am planning to do is finish  my finance degree , work for 5 years in finance (while studying computer science,mechanical engineering etc on the side) then head into robotics from a developper/entrepreneur angle as In the future i would like to develop products  and software that simplifies home life (i know this is very vague, but right now i cannot explain it better) 

i was basically wondering how & where can i get the necessary experience & information to properly understand robotics & its software if i am not a person that studied cs/engineering in university?



thank you to all

Hi there :)

Just start with something simple first, like The $50 Robot, this will give You basic skill-set and knowledge to carry on with more demanding projects.

To be an entrepreneur You don't actually need to have any sort of official education, all You need is imagination and knowledge to fulfill it. University or college does help with theory, however it is not mandatory as hands on experience is as good if not better.

Good luck with it.
