Being around programming, development, and design on a daily basis makes it easy to believe that the demand for tech skills is on the rise. But, it’s always nice to see it validated in print as well.
According to WANTED Analytics, jobs requiring robotics skills greatly increased in January 2012, as corporate recruiters and staffing firms placed about 2,100 online job ads requesting such know-how. A premier source of up-to-date business intelligence for the talent marketplace, WANTED reports that these 2,100 jobs represent 44% growth when compared to January 2011.
We often hear the question – “how do you decide which tech courses to offer?” While feedback from past students and parents is one factor, stats like these can’t be ignored. Common job titles that advertise the requirement of robotics skills include Controls Engineer, Manufacturing Engineer, Mechanical Engineer, and others.
