Basically it is, though on a much more advanced level. But if you do like creating something out of nothing with your bare hands, then robotics may give you the skills and tools for doing that on a wider scale. You can build machines to solve your own pain points and invent things to help others solve theirs.

I won’t try to sell you on a career in robotics by promising that the learning curve is short and easy. On the contrary, thriving in this field is just as difficult as entering its vast and unpredictable world. Presuming that you have passion, that doesn’t mean that you can’t master robotics in your adult years.

And here’s why you should start learning robotics now.

1. Robotics Is About Innovation

Robotics is all about innovation, pushing limits, and breaking grounds. Because there’s something new in this field every day (here’s what’s trending this week), learning robotics is both demanding and exciting. So much so, in fact, that keeping up the pace would be much harder if you were any younger.

2. It’s Basically Building Stuff3. It Gives You a Different Perspective
