Is Arduino knowledge valued in the work field?

I’m a mechanical engineering student hoping to get into a robotics career. I’m also minoring in computer science(but plan on learning much more on my own than the 6 class cs minor requires). I’m wondering if diving in and learning the ins and outs of Arduino builds and programming will be something of value to potential interviewers? I’m very interested in it and am probably going to learn it anyways but I am wondering in the robotics industry, is there something better I could be doing or is this a good place to start? Thanks!

Sorry for the poor grammar, not the best writer. Also not sure if this is the correct sub.
