Enrollment Advantage

Zhejiang University of Science and Technology-Rockwell Automation Comprehensive Laboratory was established under the support of Rockwell Automation a world famous company in 2015. It is an automation engineering application base which can provide theoretical teaching and engineering practice platform for the majors of robotics engineering, automation, electrical engineering and its automation. It has 20 sets of PLC control experiment, asynchronous motor drive control experiment and servo motor control experimental device each, and 3 sets of college student competition training equipment.

Students are assigned their personal mentors to guide in course selection, to suggest career path, to provide additional resources and laboratory access, to supervise after-class hands-on projects and competitions, to arrange on-campus part-time positions and industry internship opportunities. Our graduates have achieved excellent GPA performance and numerous competition awards, scholarships and honors.

Career Prospects

Currently, many countries have realized the importance of robots and all raised their ambitious plan on introducing more robots into industry, economics and other related areas. Germany invented the phase “Industry 4.0” and China also proposed “Intelligent manufacture 2020”. Thus the research and application on robots is highly promising to be prosperous and has only made a successful start of an even brighter future, creating a lot of practice and job opportunities. The Robotic Technology and Artificial Intelligence are in rapid development, and therefore all kinds of new intelligent systems such as industrial robotic, internet of things, vehicular networking, unmanned vehicle, unmanned aerial vehicles emerge in endlessly, which requires many robotics engineering talents, maintaining the optimistic prospect of employment.

After four years of study in Robotics Engineering, approximately half of the graduates start a career in the industry, qualified as system engineers, hardware engineers, algorithm engineers or project managers, who can go to the robotics, electronics, artificial intelligent, information technology companies such as HUAWEIPanasonicSIEMENSRockwell, Alibaba, Supcon, Media, GREE etc.

The other graduates continue to pursue postgraduate studies, in universities around China and overseas e.g. in Europe. Their excellent academic performance and extra-curriculum activity gives them an overwhelming advantage in scholarship applications. And many graduates proceed to pursue master’s degree at our own AEE school with familiar supervisors.
