It's no secret that jobs in the STEM field are the fastest growing careers, and are projected to continue growing far faster than other industries in the foreseeable future. Robots continue to make headlines, and jobs in that industry have grown dramatically in the last decade. Robots now perform surgeries and are able to be controlled via the minds of quadriplegics. They are police officers, and they may just be future marriage partners.
By the time you graduate, over half of the available jobs will likely be in the STEM field, and a large chunk of the rest will require employees to have STEM knowledge.
Controlling robots is something you need to be able to do.
