About the program

Robot Operating System-ROS is a set of software libraries, tools, and a framework that support you in building robot applications. Within its growing use in industry, ROS is rapidly becoming a standard in robotics. This specialization will walk you through ROS basics step by step from the very beginner level to the proficient! Your mentors will guide you and teach you how to develop a stack for a custom robotic arm (UR3 & Germany Amber B1), you will have the chance to work on programming a robot arm, operate it, and control it in the real world. Unleash your geekiness in robotics with Phi!

What will you learn

ROS Practical and project-based specialization designed to help you realize the process of programming and operating a custom robotic arm. As it becomes one of the in-demand fields, it is truly essential to get the required skill-set that qualifies you to join the market as a roboticist engineer who knows ROS. Phi provides you with a 111-hours full package of theories and real use cases from the industry, in order to deliver you the hands-on learning of ROS. Enrolling in this specialization will take you through a learning journey of 3 phases over 4 months. Your first month will let you gain the basics of the know-how of programming with python and C++.  Additionally, to get a rooted understanding of applied mathematics and state-of-art algebra. Your journey next moves to advance your learning with the basic components, tools, libraries, and cores of ROS which are expected to accomplish within 11 weeks led by instructors and practitioners from top-notched entities. Lectures will be conducted in live, peer-to-peer sessions that allow you to meet with your instructors and your colleagues to enjoy the interactive and group-discussion classes. You will be weekly assigned to a hands-on task to leverage knowledge gained during these sessions. Students also will be working on their capstone projects during the last 2 months of this cohort. Besides the Capstone project, you'll take an End-of-Course Exam as a prerequisite to get certified. By the end of this specialization, you will be able to identify basic robotic subsystems, analyze challenges of the implementation of robotic systems, explain the concepts behind robot manipulators' controlling as well as simulating, programming, and testing what is learned on a real Robotic Manipulator.

Mastering ROS (Robot operating system) will give you the ability to work with ARM robots and to transfer your knowledge to similar sectors like Self-driving Cars Engineering or Drone engineering.

FAQs

What is ROS?

ROS is considered to be an open resource platform intended to help researchers, developers & roboticists build and re-use code between multi-robotics applications.

It can be used not only in the laboratory but in the commercial and services industries

Robot Operating systems, which is a standard for robotics software development, can be used on any robot. Whatever is the programming for mobile robots, robotic arms, drones, boats, machines, all can be on ROS. Every time you start a new application, it becomes easier, and then you don't need to re-learn it. You can also easily switch to an existing ROS project developed by another hand and not be lost.


Should I learn ROS?

Yes, you should do that! Basically, if you're striving to get involved in the design, manufacturing, and Robot-tech market, you should be knowledgeable with the market advances and latest trends since ROS is becoming an essential component not only a trend, the growing need for robotics engineer who has the skills in using ROS should lead you to learn it. Well, as many ROS learners said, the learning curve to pick up robotics from scratch is far steeper, in other words, by learning ROS you're advancing your career and adding significant value to the industry by speeding up development on the future projects that wouldn't be delivered on time without ROS.


Who use ROS?

ROS is being adopted into some of the key players in the robotics market like fetch and ABB. 

The majority of enterprises are either using it as it can be accessible by anyone

or a fork of ROS in some form. Till the moment, use-cases are still growing tremendously!

ROS is used across numerous industries from agriculture to medical devices, now it's spreading

to include all kinds of automation and software-defined dynamic use-cases. In the GCC, many 

Startups and companies are launching that use ROS as a key tool in their frameworks. 


Who is this course suitable for?

Learning ROS is not that easy, yet it's doable. You can do it by self-paced learning, there's a

huge amount of tutorials and videos available on search engines. Meanwhile, it might take a long

time to achieve the desired outcomes yet no practical experience might be done nor a mentor tracking. This course will help you achieve your goals if you're having a basis in engineering or computer science. You're expected to have at least the basic knowledge of mathematics and mainly programming. Need help to determine whether this course is right for you? Contact us.


Can I skip a certain course?

Not exactly, you can only waive courses in the initial phase (prerequisites kit). We recommend you to apply and join these foundational courses, to learn basic components before digging deep into the advanced level since the whole curriculum is designed following the synoptic methodology. You can waive these courses upon your responsibility if your submitted documents met our criteria. (Read more in the syllabus)


Is this program accredited?

This specialization program is non-academia-recognized. Our ROS professional training kit is designed and developed in collaboration with the industrial leads in the field, learning outcomes and the curriculum are articulated to meet market-based and in-demand skillset in such vacancies globally and regionally. Once completed the program, you will be qualified to apply for entry-level jobs in the field.


Does Phi Science offer financial aid or discounts?

As part of paying back to our society, Phi is glad to provide up to 2 full scholarships for any of its specializations.

Please submit your application form. Moreover, you can get your early-bird registration discount when enrolling in any of the announced programs 2 weeks at least before the kick-off day.
