Master's Degree Needed for Robotics?

Hi All,

Early career (24M) youngin here. I graduated from undergrad with a BS in Computer Science and getting into Robotics has always been a passion. I've had at least two internships that dealt with robotics directly and my most recent full time position in test engineering has definitely been a good adjacent.

My main question is if I know I want to pursue robotics seriously at some point in my future career, how important is it for me to get a master's in CS / EE / CEE / Mechatronics with a focus in Robotics? My current understanding is that it's pretty important. Just browsing certain roles on LinkedIn robotics seems to be a field where specialization or graduate qualifications are expected.

Beyond that though, as we consider the value of education in and of itself I start to consider the fact that I already have a good foundation and could teach / learn a lot of this on my own. To the extent of even looking up graduate curriculum and trying to work through it on my own, or come up with my own unique research project - e.g. a personal thesis or something of the sort. OR a Coursera course like this one that I'm honestly tempted to start right now. Similarly, I could find an entry-mid level job that gives me good enough experience and work my way up.
