It is very important for a Robotics Engineer to have a strong understanding of mechanical design and electrical design. From the perspective of someone with a strong electrical background, I would focus on learning the following areas: Statics and Dynamics - For EOAT design and robot specification. Calculus - If you have had some, just brush up on it. If you haven't, learn the basics of integration and differentiation. Robot simulation software - For cell layout design and offline programming. 3D CAD - For EOAT and dress package design. ISO Safety Standards - For cell design and risk assessment. Machine communication (Profinet, Ethernet/IP, EtherCAT, etc.) Structured text programming (C#, C++, etc.) - For robot logic programming. This will keep you busy for a while.
