Robotics and Automation
Robotics is a new branch of Engineering that involves design, development and operation of robots, a branch that is an overlap of several engineering disciplines like electrical, mechanics, electronics, computer science and artificial intelligence. The faculty members of this department come from diverse backgrounds, but are united by our common passion for Robotics that we share with the young minds that join us and we work together to ignite their dreams.
The department of Robotics and Automation Engineering was established to meet the growing demand for trained engineers in the field of Industrial Automation. Automation Engineering is a cross-sectional discipline that requires sound, proportional knowledge in hardware as well as software development and their applications. This unique programme is tailored to prepare quality Automation Engineers for various application segments like manufacturing, defence, food, aerospace, medicine and other services.
The increased demand of current industry for efficiencies and safety has led to a greater need for professionals with an added expertise in the field of ‘Robotics & Automation’. Robotics & Automation combines design, construction, operation, and application of robots coupled with computer based control systems, sensory feedback, and information processing. The design of a robotic system puts together principles of electronic engineering, mechanical engineering and computer engineering.
A B.Tech specialization with Robotics & Automation Engineering will enable students to serve the Industry requirement for implementation of new and smart technologies covering methods of synthesis, analysis & optimization of newer robots and mechanisms. The initial job functions in the field include- Robotics Engineer, Robotics Wielding, Mobile Robotics, 3D Robotics, and Robotics Engineer at E-commerce Giants amongst others. Immediate & long term employment opportunities exist in the fields like industrial automation, manufacturing, agriculture, mining, aerospace, healthcare and defense. Also this field finds applications in the regular streams like mechanical systems/design engineering, electronics systems engineering and control systems engineering.
