First you'll need C, not C++, secondly, everything else. One thing that will require the University - and perhaps Pascal and Fortran, and more - what will actually work. In principle, all these languages are being developed at the moment if you know something already.
I'm not sure what nVidia have to the robots - rather, it is "high performance computing", but the ability useful.

Programming in robotics is not much given. Probably depends on the University, but that's not the profile subject. In the first year get ready to draw lots, as you will have a standard course of engineering specialties.
Better on the applied mathematics act with such topics.
P. S. the study on robtek.
P. P. S. This is not the answer, if that, and just the addition that you are doing on 15.03.06

Fit, more foolish and Fortran may be needed.

As a Supplement. You can start with MatLab and Python.
