Robotic coding from coding training improves high-level cognitive skills. The re-search aims to determine the opinions of the senior students who took up the cod-ing course in the information technologies teaching department about the robotic coding course. In this context, 41 senior year students studying in Cyprus and Russian Universities were interviewed. The qualitative research method was ap-plied. Semi-structured interview forms were created by taking experts’ opinions. Findings were analysed by the content analysis method. The answers obtained were determined; general views, perceived usefulness, gains, reinforcement out-side of school and professional contributions were analysed. According to the re-sults, pre-service teachers of the information technology departments should be oriented towards the preparation of robotics and courses in schools. They stated that there is a high demand from all school education levels for training in robotic courses.
