Robotics Engineering Curriculum

Course Outline

Robotics Engineering Curriculum (REC) provides a comprehensive study of engineering concepts including:

  • Physics
  • Programming
  • Mechanical systems
  • Electrical and electronics systems
  • Relevant activities and capstone projects in each semester

These core concepts are delivered with a robotics emphasis through relevant activities and projects using the award winning VEX Robotics hardware and easyC® robotic programming software. By using robotics as a vehicle to convey the principles of engineering, REC generates excitement and enthusiasm for the engineering field!
