Programme details:

NQF Level 7 | Technology | Degree
Robotics is an exciting branch of Information Technology that involves the conception, design, manufacture, and operation of robots. It primarily deals with the design, construction, operation, and use of robots, as well as computer systems for their control, sensory feedback, and information processing.

Students will be taught the mechanics, planning and control of robots. They will also learn how to build and control autonomous robots using Python and Raspberry pi.

This qualification is channelled toward students that are ready to use the above technologies for the development of machines that can substitute for humans and replicate human actions.

You will also develop essential skills for the world of work, such as analytical and abstract thinking, effective decision-making, self-discipline, being innovative, adapting to change, working in teams and communicating effectively.
