How Robotics Has Helped The Manufacturing Industry

Few industries have been impacted more by the advent of robotics than the manufacturing industry. In fact, the manufacturing industry was one of the first to implement robotics all the way back in 1961. Since then, science-fiction has become a normal part of life. Let's take a look at how robotics has become an indispensable asset to the manufacturing industry.

The STEM employment gap

The UK has the lowest percentage of female engineer professionals in Europe, with countries such as Cyprus having nearly three times as many women in similar roles. This article will focus on women's relationship with the STEM and manufacturing industries.
