    Hello guys/girls thanks for taking your time to read this. (First Post)

    So im a college student it's my first year and i want to become a robotic engineering. The subjects iv'e picked in college are BTEC level 3 science, Core Maths and English language resit. I wanna study abroad like japan since they excel in robots. So can anyone tell me a way i can become a robotic engineer or if i have a chance to become one or not and what do i have to do now to become one if i can't. Thanks

    You can't become a robotic engineering because engineering is a field.

    But you'll need to take a degree in Robotic or Mechanical Engineering to begin with to become a Robotic Engineer.

    maybe if you have been building robots at home as a hobby you could mention that on your CV ?

    Studying abroad can be expensive and you won't qualify for a UK student loan, also, in Japan you would almost certainly need to speak Japanese for most university courses*.

    There are excellent universities in the UK with good engineering courses - and some even have robotics as an undergraduate option or specialisation.

    However you will need to be good at maths and physics at A-level (or equivalent), because engineering is basically applied maths & physics.

    Also, you might want to consider studying a more general engineering degree at first (e.g. mechanical engineering, or electronic engineering). These usually include some options in robotics, and then you can specialise in robotics later.

    *If Japan still appeals, this university has engineering courses taught in English
