What can a student learn during their free time to be a robotics engineer in the future?

I am dreaming to be a robotics engineer in a company that builds autonomous robots that are integrated into daily life such as robots that serves food,cleans the floor,delivers packages and rescue people.

What particular skills should I hone that will increase my chances of landing my dream job? I am currently all over the place with my skills (3rd year mechatronics) and I really want to be particularly great at 1 or 2 robotics skills that can differentiate myself from my peers.

I really will appreciate any advice from those who are living the dream of building robots and earning money out of it!
