    Where digital meets physical

    The opportunities that can come from robotics are endless. Being skilled in robotics can lead to careers in the gaming industry, the health sector and space exploration. This learning stream is not only applicable today, but may be even more relevant for the jobs of tomorrow as robots and AI become part of human life.

    Individual attention from industry experts

    With limited class sizes, our expert teachers can give individualized support and feedback to every student. They’ll gain invaluable perspective, and a mentor who will advise them throughout the program.

    Robotics curriculum designer and educator for Resolute Robotics

    Gareth is an entrepreneurial electronic engineer who graduated from the University of Pretoria in 2016. After graduating, he worked at Softcon, where he got to practically apply his theoretical knowledge. Gareth then went on to work as a Data Analyst for Optimi. This is when he found that his true passion lay in Robotic Microprocessors and Control Systems.

    Gareth’s love for sharing his passion has led him into the education space where he now specialises in teaching High School Students the various fundamentals and complex concepts behind Electronics and Robotics.
