Robotics Engineering - B.S.
Effective Fall 2020, Johnson & Wales University will complete its transition from a term calendar to a semester calendar. Starting with the 2020–21 catalog, all programs will represent course requirements in semester credit hours rather than quarter credit hours. Students who started on terms and will finish their degree requirements on semesters should consult with their assigned academic counselor in Student Academic Services or faculty advisor on semester transition academic planning.
The Robotics Engineering bachelor’s degree program provides a broad based foundation in current and evolving areas of robotics, automation and mechatronics engineering. The program focuses on the dynamics of the industry in robotic and mechatronic systems and applications.
Our immersive, lab-based approach integrates technology and engineering applications with contemporary developments in the field.
Upon completion of the program, graduates are expected to:
- Apply knowledge of mathematics, science, engineering and technology as required by the field of robotics engineering.
- Use engineering processes to analyze problems, formulate solutions, conduct simulations and experiments and interpret data.
- Apply written, oral, and graphical communication for the engineering field with consideration for ethical and global concerns.
- Use techniques, skills, industry related tools and technical literature to complete projects, analyze, and interpret data to formulate solutions to engineering problems.
- Integrate knowledge, tools, and problem solving skills to implement the testing of solutions to engineering problems.
Through our experiential education options, you’ll have the opportunity to gain work experience at a variety of industry partnership sites.

Students who graduate with a bachelor's degree must leave Johnson & Wales University with effective writing skills to fulfill the graduation writing requirement. These writing skills will be assessed at the completion of ENG1021 Advanced Composition and Communication. Students who have met the requirement of ENG1021 Advanced Composition and Communication or ENG1027 Honors Advanced Composition and Communications: Civic Discourse outside of Johnson & Wales University must fulfill the graduation writing requirement through successful completion of ENG0001 Writing Workshop.
In collaboration with academic colleges across all JWU campuses, JWU Study Abroad programs offer a variety of international options for major, minor, Arts & Sciences, and elective credit at many price points for students during the academic year and summer. Faculty-led, exchange, affiliate, and direct-enroll programs range in duration from one week to a full semester. Financial aid is applicable and scholarships are available.
