I think I am a rare person because I knew at a very early age what I was going to *be when I grew up*. When I was 10 years old, I had a soldering iron in my hand and was building electronic projects from magazines and books. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I also had an affinity for math, so it was just a matter-of-fact that I would become a degreed electrical engineer.
After 25 years of practice, I am starting to get *burned out*, but that will probably happen to most people no matter what career they choose.
Keep in mind there are many areas of study within the banner called, *electrical engineering*. You mentioned one area -- robotics, which is a subset of electromechanical engineering. You may have to find another school that specializes in that field of engineering.
Other areas of specialty include: power, electronic design, instrumentation & telemetry, signal processing, integrated circuit design, and others.
Good luck, Tom
