Robotics and Automation Engineering Program Overview

Program Overview

Robotics and Automation Engineering prepares students to excel in the rapidly-evolving world of industrial 4.0 and digital transformation for industrial manufacturing. The curriculum is designed to equip students with the practical skills they need to succeed in this exciting and dynamic demanding field. It focuses on building a strong foundation of engineering principles, computer science, mechanical design, and new technology for industrial digital transformation. The unique features of the Robotics and Automation Engineering program at Camtech is its project-based learning program in which students work on internship projects for 3 years to adapt new technologies quickly and to develop excellent problem-solving and collaborative teamwork skills from their early years In addition to the hand-on approach in the university, the one-year industry placement program will provide students with an opportunity to gain hands-on experience in a real-world work environment, helping them acquire practical knowledge and skills that can prepare them for a successful career. As graduates of this program, students will be well-equipped to design, develop, and implement robotic systems and automation technology that can improve efficiency and productivity across a range of industries.
