"Robotics isn't so much a discipline itself as it is the nexus point of other science disciplines," says David Calkins, an SFSU engineering lecturer and president of the San Francisco Robotics Society of America. "To be a robotics engineer, you have to be a mechanical engineer, software engineer, computer engineer, mechanic and artist. It's by far the hardest job anyone could have." Calkins helped bring more than 450 robotics enthusiasts to campus in March for RoboGames, the largest robotics competition and exhibition in the country.
