Robots are here to stay, and stay they will. It is mankind’s responsibility to become accustomed with them. In recent years, there has been a great amount of advancements in the field of robotics. Researchers as well as developers have been able to build sophisticated robots, which are optimally precise, accurate, and able to perform complex tasks. Robots are on the verge of becoming an integral member of human civilization. Such an era would require basic knowledge of programming, electronics, and other topics that the field of robotics embodies, as a necessity.
Nwachukwu C. Obinna was born in Lagos, Nigeria on 11th August 1994. He is the first son of Nigerian diplomats. Nwachukwu has had the opportunity to live in several countries including; Japan, Namibia, Austria, France, and currently Hungary. He graduated from high school in the year 2012 from Ecole Internationale Bilingue situated in the city of Paris. Originally he had intended to attend University in the United States of America. He began a Bachelor’s of Science program in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Debrecen, which he completed January of 2016. He decided to further his education in Debrecen, with a Master’s of Science program in Mechatronics Engineering. He is currently enrolled in the final year of the Master’s of Science program. In the summer of 2016, while visiting his mother who is currently stationed in Australia, Nwachukwu discovered his potential in the field of robotics. He had stumbled upon a massive open online courses (MOOCs) website known as coursera.org, in search of a programming course. A few other related topics caught his eyes, including a course centered on the topic of aerial robotics. Dedication to completing the course led to the development of his passion for robotics.
