FOUR MAJORS TO CHOOSE
Behind every robot, you’ll find an engineer or computer scientist. They design, build, program and test these intelligent machines that perform key functions in our world. When you add a robotics concentration to your major in computer engineering, computer science, electrical engineering or mechanical engineering, you’ll be a step ahead in this growing industry.
- Take specialized courses in intelligent systems, embedded systems, industrial controllers and digital-imaging processing
- Join the Polar Robotics Club, working with teammates to design and build robots that compete in an annual intercollegiate robotic football tournament each spring
- Tackle a senior capstone project related to robotics, like designing an underwater robot or an automated golf cart
- Land a co-op or internship at a company liked Applied Manufacturing Technologies, GROB Systems or Rockwell Automation, which may lead to an offer of full-time employment
- Work side by side with an ONU professor on research in the field of robotics
I AM CONSTANTLY WORKING ON SOMETHING DIFFERENT AND HAVING MY PROBLEM-SOLVING SKILLS TESTED. EACH DAY IS FUN AND EXCITING.
Jared Schatzinger, BSME ’15, has always been intrigued by the idea of giving machines human characteristics. He added the robotics concentration to his mechanical engineering major to learn more about this exciting field. At ONU, he became involved in many clubs and activities. He loved participating in the Polar Robotics Club and taking on the Fighting Irish each spring. Today, he’s a robot programming engineer for Applied Manufacturing Technologies in Michigan. He currently designs new automation cells for Ford so that a large volume of car parts can be produced efficiently and safely.
