Robotics and automated systems, is it useful to a mechanical engineer?

  1. Jul 1, 2014 #1
    Hi i just finished my first year of general engineering and am on a 4 month break. If there are any senior engineering students or engineers out there, I just want to know if its useful to take a two month course in embedded systems and microcontrollers.

    Welcome to PF;
    All education is useful.
    The amount of usefulness of any particular course depends entirely on you.
    OTOH: there are a lot of mechanical engineering contexts where there are also microcontrollers and embedded systems ... it all comes down to what sort of engineer you want to be.
