Why take Robotics @ UIS

Unique opportunity to learn to design and implement programs for the hardware side, such as testing, controlling, automating, of mechanical hardware, robots, or chemistry experiments, essential for securing programming work in an industrial, exploration, tactical or production environments.

Collaborative Robots

Collaborative robots work in close proximity to humans in a shared workspace without safety fences. Work in cooperation with humans helping with heavy workpiece transfer, parts assembly.

Social Robot

Pepper is a humanoid robot by Aldebaran Robotics designed with the ability to read emotions. Social robots communicates & interact with humans by following social behaviors and rules attached to their role.

Tactical Robots

Tactical robots do surveillance, investigation, even negotiation, to keep humans safe, save lives and time in hazardous situations. They provide quick assessments of dangerous situations from a safe and remote location.
