Robotics Engineer Population
The science and technology of designing, building, researching and recording data, and using robots in various applications in which humans are unable/prefer not to do themselves.
There is mechanical aspect where the parts of the robot are designed and fabricated.
There is the software aspect of it where the interface, communication, and thinking is designed and incorporated into the robot.
There is the application aspect of it where the combination of the mechanical and software areas are combined for the final use.
Application areas include medical, military, civilian, scientific, etc.
By 2018, about 50,200 jobs will be opened
By 2022, 5-8% of the world will have occupations as Robotics Engineers. It is about 1% now (as of 2014).
One of the jobs with the highest outlook
As technology evolves, Robotics Engineers will tend to move into the new areas being made.

Robot Fun Facts
Elektro was the very first humanoid robot. It spoke over 700 words, was 7 ft,and was debuted in 1939. Elektro also appeared in its own movie in 1960.
The first known robot homocide occured in 1981, when a robotic arm crushed a Japanese Kawasaki factory worker.
Leonardo Da Vinci drew plans for an armored humanoid robot in 1495. An engineer named Mark Rosheim had created a miniture version of it for NASA to help create a colony on Mars.
There are currently over 4000 robots in the US military. This includes Talon bots that scout for roadside bombs across Iraq. Pac bots were used to find Osama Bin Ladin's hideout in Afghanistan, but were unsuccessful.
Archytas of Tarentum, a friend of Plato, built a mechanical bird driven by a jet of steam/compressed air. It is argued to be his first robot... in the 5th century B.C.
The most known robots are Star Wars's R2DR and C3PO
R.O.B ( Robotic Operating Buddy)
Bomb Detecting Military Robot
Medical Helping Robot Arm
Packbot used in Afghanistan
Elektro the Robot

Cybernetics professor Kevin Warwick calls himself the world's very first cyborg because of the computer chips placed in his left arm. He can remotely operate doors, his artificial hand, and his electronic wheelchair.
All three jobs require robotics training
Robotics Engineers tend to stay in their own field
Famous Robotics Engineers
Job fields chosen based on the purpose of the robot
The main purpose of a robotics engineer is to creatrobots to make jobs and lives of all people safer, easier, and more effieient.
