A robotics technician can work for large manufacturing companies, midsized engineering enterprises, and startups. This position will either involve working at production facilities or in offices.
Annual salary estimates are based on percentile wage data collected through the Occupational Employment Statistics (OES) survey of US workers.
DVM / VMD degree
To become a robotics technician, you will generally need to complete an associate’s degree in robot technology or a related field. Alternatively, could you complete a vocational-technical school or community college programme in a relevant subject.
With experience, you could move into supply chain automation, instrumentation integration or automation controls management. You could also move into training future robotics technicians or teaching at community or vocational schools. Other robotics technicians go on to become independent consultants.
