If you want to learn Robotics AND Lisp, Dr. Perkowski teaches a Robotics 
class (Usually in the Winter & Spring terms in the PSU ECE dept) in which 
he uses a good amount of Lisp (he's a big fan of Lisp).  A class 
like that might either be a lot more than you bargained for or it might 
actually be a great way of learning Lisp by applying it to an interesting 
topic right away.
