Robotics was introduced in our Computer Science Club during the 2006/2007 Academic Year in which we observed our students generating a high level of enthusiasm. As a result of the high level of enthusiasm we thought it would be a good idea to develop an Introduction and Advanced Robotics course for our Computer Science Undergraduate program. The two new courses could help us further attract and retain computer science students and introduce interesting courses in our curriculum. Robotics has been a rapidly evolving technology as business and society are continuously looking for ways to automate procedures, processes and activities. Its development and evolution in industry and with consumers will depend on the existence of a robotics-savvy workforce. Offering Robotics courses at our College will have a positive impact on our computer science students as they head out into the workforce and strengthen our computer science curriculum.
