Panel Session: Robotics Education: From Schools to Academia and Industry

We are now facing the transformation from industry and information based society to the society based on knowledge. This transformation is one of the most fascinating transformations in the history of mankind. Chances, risks and potential possibilities are of this transformation are enormous. The role of engineers and their education will be changed in seven main directions; one of them is need for increased creativity of engineers. The space given for the development of creativity of engineers during education is due to the traditional approach and limited educational means very limited. Application of robots for the education opens possibilities of creative learning and creative research as tool for increasing of creativity of next generation of engineers. The Robotics should start from school stages and shouldn’t be limited to university stage .Topics include but are not limited to:

  • Robotics at school initiatives
  • Robotics at University initiatives
  • School to University linkage through robotics programs
  • Research to industry linkage programs
  • The impact of robotics education on research and industry
