As robots gain more and more capabilities, they will play an increasingly prominent part in our everyday lives. Robotics is an area of technology seeing unprecedented growth.
The Introducing Robotics program from Queensland University of Technology (QUT) is made up of three online courses that build from theory to practice.
You’ll begin by exploring how we’re using robots to help solve big challenges in our society today, before considering what the future might hold for humans and robots alike.
You’ll become familiar with the mathematical knowledge and programming skills required to make robots move, and you’ll try out your skills in practical exercises.
Finally - you’ll put your skills into practice by building your own robot. You’ll design, build and program a simple robot arm, and you’ll be invited to share a video of your robot with learners around the world.
Accessible for free on desktop, tablet or mobile and delivered in bite-sized chunks, the courses provide a flexible way to develop your understanding of robotics.
When you complete all three courses and buy a Certificate of Achievement for each, you will earn a FutureLearn Award as proof of completing the program of study.
