Robotics Engineering, Bachelor of Science 

The BSc in Robotics is a revolutionary, four-year program that implements the latest technologies in robotics never before offered in Kazakhstan. This program prepares students for future ventures and graduate work as innovative problem-solvers.

Robotics is a multidisciplinary field of engineering, combining mechanical, electrical, computer and systems engineering in order to design and manufacture highly technological and complex systems such as robots, prostheses, medical devices and electric cars. Nowadays, robotics is on the verge of rapid growth driven by both supply and demand. The supply side is driven by decreasing cost and increasing availability of different types of sensors, computing devices, and actuators. The demand side is driven by national needs for defense and security, healthcare, automation, customized manufacturing, and interactive entertainment. Therefore, there is a clear need for a specialized university program preparing engineers capable of designing, implementing and working with modern robotic and mechatronics systems in industry and other sectors of society. The students of the Robotics program acquire their skills both based on the understanding of theoretical concepts, and on an extensive hands-on experience in the teaching and research labs of the department. Students can be involved in the research activities of the faculty members during summer internships, and/or during their graduation projects. The program, running since Academic year 2011/12, is the nation’s first undergraduate Robotics degree program, and has also been one of the first Robotics programs in the world. The program educates young engineers for working with robotic and mechatronic systems in different industries, creating local robotics and mechatronics companies and preparing them for graduate work. Robotics students have access to state-of-the-art facilities available at the department. NU SEDS has laboratory facilities with modern tools and technologies for students to participate in the Student Robotics Club as collaborators in faculty research projects and industrial internships. Graduates can transition into a career as an engineer of advanced technology systems in industrial and research-focused enterprises or continue their education in a graduate program.
