LSSU is one of the top public universities in the United States and in 2018 was the first public university in the state of Michigan to offer a Robotics Engineering undergraduate degree.
According to Zion Market Research study, the Industrial Robotics Market was worth around $21.7 billion in 2021 and is estimated to grow to about $81.4 billion by 2028 as industries like automotive, pharmaceuticals, consumer electronics, packaging, and manufacturing continue to adopt and implement robotics at a faster rate. The International Federation of Robotics estimates that over 50 percent of production operators will be working with robots in 10 years’ time. But this demand is causing an ever growing gap in professionals with robotic skills. For over 35 years, LSSU’s Robotics programs continue to help fill this need.
The Robotics Engineering degree program combines the strengths of our engineering programs in Mechanical Engineering, Computer Engineering, and Electrical Engineering and builds on three decades of expertise in industrial robotics, including the $2M Robotics Lab, by expanding into mobile and service robotics. A detailed list of courses for the Robotics Engineering degree can be found in the LSSU course catalog.
The School of Engineering & Technology’s Computer Engineering bachelor’s degree program, Electrical Engineering bachelor’s degree program, and Mechanical Engineering bachelor’s degree program are accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
Robotics Engineering in Senior Projects
Students partner with leading industries and corporations to develop capstone projects; it is a great way of bringing our Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Manufacturing Engineering Technology, Electrical Engineering Technology, and Mechatronics students together for interdisciplinary projects.
