Recent TV Programing Correlates to UAT Degrees


Television has recently shined a light on two exciting majors offered at University of Advancing Technology: Robotics and Embedded Systems and Network Security. You heard me right! Hit the DVR and let’s see what these shows are all about.

BattleBots – Sundays at 9 p.m. on ABC

The premise: The homemade robots will battle against each other, in a single elimination tournament style format, until there is just one champion.

The new series promises to wow viewers with next generation robots—bigger, faster and stronger than ever before.

The show will have a greater emphasis on the design and build elements of each robot, the bot builder backstories, their intense pursuit of the championship and the spectacle of the event. Separate weight classes will be eliminated so that robots of all sizes will battle against each other.

State of the Art Onboard Technology and Cameras will provide audiences with enhanced viewing and combat analytics. There will be cash prizes for winners in the Championship Rounds.

In BattleBots, 24 of the best robot builders on Earth have set out to compete in the most epic robot competition of all time and our robotics students won’t want to miss it!

BattleBots relates to the Robotics and Embedded Systems Degree offered at UAT.

Mr. Robot – Wednesdays at 10 p.m. on USA Network

In MR. ROBOT, Elliot, a young programmer who works as a cyber-security engineer by day and vigilante hacker by night, is recruited by a mysterious underground group to destroy the firm he’s paid to protect. Elliot must decide how far he’ll go to expose the forces he believes are running (and ruining) the world.

“Sometimes the only way to change the world is to tear it down.”

Mr Robot premiers Weds., June 24, on USA Network

Mr. Robot has themes similar to UAT’s Bachelor of Science Network Security or Bachelor of Science Network Engineering degrees. Elliot probably took an ethics class to keep him on the straight and narrow, which is offered as part of the curriculum in these majors.
