HELPFUL TIP:

How your character makes a living is an important decision. After all, there’s probably a good reason why they chose this career. Think about how they pull on certain talents and skills, have positive or negative traits, and adhere to a specific work ethic to excel. Sometimes characters choose an occupation because of how they were raised, something they experienced, or even an emotional wound, so consider how all of these things will show readers who they are deep down, and why they do what they do.
OVERVIEW:
Robotics engineers work in an array of industries, such as manufacturing, film and entertainment, mining, and space exploration. This job involves a large amount of research and design to establish the concept for the robot, followed by its construction, and, finally, thorough testing to be sure it works as intended. If the robot already exists, the engineer is tasked with developing new applications or software for it. Regardless, for most projects, the engineer will work collaboratively with others rather than independently.

NECESSARY TRAINING:
Some universities offer degree programs specifically in robotics, but typically, engineers just need to have a bachelor's degree in a related field (like mechanical engineering). Licensing is required for those who wish to work independently or pursue higher-level jobs, and certain career paths, such as teaching in the field, will require a master's or doctorate degree. Because new research is being published at a steady rate, continuing education is a priority for anyone in this position.
