It is challenging to get talent with the right set of skills we need for our growing robotics team. With this programme, we are confident that the talent will be trained and can take up a role in Robotics Software Engineering. This will also help the local robotics community flourish moving forward.
Dr Zhang Yanliang

Chief Scientist, Weston Robot

Comprehensive training is especially useful in nurturing potential Robotics Engineers. More importantly, the learners must be passionate about Robotics and are interested to learn. That, coupled with hands-on training and tinkering experience, will make a good foundation for learners with no Robotics background.
