After a (relatively) quiet August, Rohobub is gearing up again this September as everyone in the robotics community heads back to work and school.

This month, as part of our soon-to-launch focus series “Getting Started in Robotics” we decided to ask our panel of experts “What is the best way to get a robotics education today?” And for our readers who are taking the long view to their robotics education, we followed up with “What do you look for when hiring a roboticist?”

Here’s how our panelists weighed in …

A quality learning experience centered on robotics is hard to find for many students who lack STEM resources through their own schools. Although new science standards hope to improve the situation, K-12 schools are struggling to provide a basic STEM education, let alone opportunities involving more specialized lessons in robotics …

Jonathan Roberts on “What do you look for when hiring a roboticist?”

We are looking for researchers who are highly motivated, and who are passionate about seeing the results of their research come to fruition and be used by industry or the public. They should have a demonstrated ability to conduct internationally-recognized, cutting-edge research in robotics, and have a great publication record …

Nicola Tomatis on “What do you look for when hiring a roboticist?”

We still hire also R&D personnel, but we primarily want to have the best specialists, not necessarily robotics generalists. Of course, we value a background in robotics, but this is not a must …

Everyone loves to visit the seaside, whether to enjoy the physical benefits of an exhilarating swim or simply to relax on the beach and catch some sun.
