Robots are no longer found only in science fiction. Today, Robotics is used in most industries to perform precise repetitive tasks, handle materials, offer simple services, and even provide theme park entertainment. Robotics technicians install, maintain, operate and repair robots and manufacturing environments and they also assist engineers and scientists in research and development. A robotics technician needs manual dexterity, a talent for problem solving, familiarity with computers and knowledge of electronics. Employers usually hire vocational school graduates or candidates with a scientific associate’s degree. Getting an internship may be a good way to break into this relatively new field. Robotic technicians must work hard to keep up with rapid changes in the industry by reading and taking classes. As more companies look at advanced technologies to increase profits, more robots will be installed in the workplace. This means an increased need for robotics technicians.
