Four in-demand careers you can break into within the robotics industry
According to the World Economic Forum's Future of Jobs 2020 report, by 2025, 85 million jobs will be transformed by increased use of automation and robots. Furthermore, it is estimated that 97 million new professional roles more suited to the new division of labour between man, machine and algorithms could emerge from this change.
This means that the future of work is not for robots, but with robots. An approach that brings important issues to the fore: first of all, man-machine collaboration, from work to everyday life. Robots, in fact, will be increasingly present in our daily life and in various manufacturing sectors. No longer just industrial robots, but also educational and social robotics, robots able to provide assistance, from the healthcare field to that of back-office jobs. And again: robots that will support humans in surgery, logistics, packaging, the agricultural sector and so on. Of course, with working methods and, therefore, programming and integration in the various production environments, different according to the tasks that the automations have to perform.
For this reason, the need to adapt the contemporary educational proposal to the professional needs of tomorrow is becoming increasingly urgent, on the one hand to create new and more innovative skills in the generations to come, on the other to update and deepen those of current workers. With this purpose, a unique specialization course was created from the collaboration between Pearson and Comau - a leading company in the industrial automation and robotics sector, which allows you to obtain a BTEC International Level 3 certification in Robotic Operations. This is a program aimed at schools, universities and teachers interested in managing an educational path aimed at transferring knowledge to their students that are useful for operating in different areas of robotics, acquiring notions that can be immediately used within the 4.0 manufacturing sector.
