Inspired by P.W. Singer's Wired for War, this comparative study investigates the perceptions of students pursuing robotic, technical, and non- technical careers on the likelihood, desirability, and ethical implications of four possible scenarios unfolding for the field of robotics circa 2050. Each scenario posits a different institution driving the development of robotics and each institution takes a different stance on - Isaac Asimov's three Laws of Robotics. Using these responses we investigate the concerns of students majoring in different fields about the direction the military, government, and corporations are taking robotics and if these concerns are mitigated by the ethical values of the controlling institution.
