A PhD, or Doctor of Philosophy, is an advanced degree awarded to those who decide to master their knowledge in a very specialized area of study. To complete such a degree program, students must first complete a thesis.

What is a PhD in Robotics? This program is typically heavily researched-focused and aims to equip participants with the skills and knowledge necessary to develop sustainable and effective engineering practices. In such a program, students may develop an advanced understanding of chemical engineering topics, industrial needs and technological systems and processes. The goal is to produce critical and innovative thinkers who can improve upon existing technologies, create new ones, identify trending and not-so-obvious issues within the sector, think strategically and develop creative solutions to address said issues.

Individuals who graduate from this program may possess skills that will serve them well in both their professional and personal lives. Some such skills include an in-depth understanding of advanced engineering, intellectual curiosity and independent and creative thinking capabilities.

The cost of this program varies widely, and individuals may expect factors such as location and the duration of the program to affect the final cost. Students who are interested should do their research before applying.

Technology is a growing industry and the need for individuals with an advanced education in the area is not going away anytime soon. That said, graduates of the program may find they have many exciting and lucrative career opportunities before them. Some such opportunities include work with machine automation, air traffic management, cybernetics, medical robotics and quantum mechanical systems industries in positions such as technicians, engineers, QA managers, air traffic controllers, software developers or robotic account managers. Businesses that may have a need for a person with an advanced degree in robotics may specialize in automotive, agricultural, electronics or manufacturing.

Where a student chooses to pursue his or her advanced degree depends on location, budget and schedule. Online courses are convenient for those who work full time or who have families.
