Nikolas Xarles Gamarra

Alumnus of 

Worcester Polytechnic Institute 2019

B.S.  Robotic Engineering 

Dual minors in Computer Science and Mechanical Engineering. 

At WPI the Robotic Engineering program is a combination of Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Computer Science.

 I became passionate about robotics in high school when I was a leading member of my school's FIRST robotics team West Side Boiler Invasion (FRC 461). During that time I became proficient in Computer Aided Design (CAD) and some manufacturing processes. I was also my team's driver for three years. 

During my time at WPI, I discovered I enjoyed programming for robotics and began to switch my focus from Mechanical Engineering to Computer Science. 

In my free time, I enjoy my passion for working on maker/DIY/home improvement projects. My projects include everything from woodworking and building furniture to designing and programming robots. A common theme for my projects is a focus on aesthetically pleasing objects with unique functionality.
