Robotics Engineering Technology

Why Robotics Engineering Technology (ROET)?

This is one of three majors offered in the Purdue Polytechnic Institute for students who seek to contribute at the intersection between manufacturing, electrical, mechanical, and computing areas in primarily industrial environments.

When you major in robotics engineering technology, you will develop and apply robotic solutions to a broad range of industrial and consumer problems. Robots help people and companies be more productive and safer, and they help explore more frontiers.

 A degree in Robotics Engineering Technology:

  • Prepares graduates for careers in product improvement, industrial processes and plant operations.
  • Application oriented coursework provides experience through course integrated lab activities. 
  • Strong emphasis is placed on the development of written and oral communication skills.
  • Gain experience solving real-world technical problems by participation in applied research projects with Professors.
  • Graduates are able to offer their employers immediate contributions as team players who have problem solving and project management experience.

Program Requirements
  • All courses are 3 credit hours, unless otherwise designated.
  • All courses are offered by Purdue, unless otherwise designated.
