BotsIQ students are required to maintain a documentation binder as well as participate in informational interviews to the are equipped to demonstrate their engineering and manufacturing prowess. In addition, BotsIQ partners with local manufacturers who serve as mentors to our students and would be able to discuss the types of jobs available in manufacturing.
