BGSU robotics laboratories for next-level learning
Part of what sets BGSU apart from other engineering programs is our expansive, state-of-the-art laboratory facilities, more than a dozen in all. We believe that technology is best taught hands-on. This is especially true for robotics engineers.
Laboratory facilities most commonly used by our ROBO majors include:
- RIXAN Robotics Lab (3,300 square feet)
- Robotics Training Lab (6,400 square feet)
- Mobile Robotics Lab (5,000 square feet)
- Control and Instrumentation Lab (3,000 square feet)
- AI & VR Lab (1,500 square feet)
All this is in addition to more than 22,000 square feet of support spaces: project rooms, maker spaces, an innovation center, conference rooms, project rooms, a Hazmat Room, tech store, breakout areas and more.
Equipment available includes programmable AGV platforms, industrial 4.0 robot systems, machine vision systems (allowing robots to “see” and interpret surroundings), a range of sensors and actuators, control systems, mechatronic systems and more.
At BGSU, our engineering laboratories are more than simple learning spaces. They’re incubators of innovation.
Career - what can you do with a robotics engineering degree?
Ohio is an established tech hub that is home to a host of sought-after companies that routinely recruit BGSU students for coveted positions. It ranks No. 5 nationally for the highest employment level of robotics/mechanical engineers, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Many engineering students graduate with job offers in hand.
Graduates with a robotics engineering degree from BGSU enter the work world ready to revolutionize. Advancing technologies and demand for automation has led to booming demand for robotics engineers. They work in university research labs, tech giant c-suites, high-level government agency offices and more.
Transportation, supply chains, construction, healthcare, surveillance, and even food industries all rely on robotics for fast, effective solutions. With a degree in robotics engineering, you can take your pick of a high-paying career path that aligns with your skills, strengths and passions.

The Robotics Engineering program is part of the School of Engineering in the BGSU College of Technology, Architecture and Applied Engineering.
The Robotics Engineering bachelor’s degree program at Bowling Green State University is ABET-compliant. Accreditation is officially granted once the first group of ROBO majors graduate. Accreditation is retroactive, so all BGSU ROBO graduates can claim completion of an ABET-accredited program.
