Programme Specific Outcomes
PSO1. Ability to apply the fundamental concepts of robotics and automation to develop solutions for simple problems
PSO2. Ability to design and implement intelligent systems using the skills and expertise acquired.
M. Tech in Robotics and Automation
We stand on the brink of a technological revolution that will fundamentally alter the way we live, work, and relate to one another. In its scale, scope, and complexity, the transformation will be unlike anything humankind has experienced before. The industries are trying to reduce manpower where they try to increase production through automation function in various sectors. Now Robotics and automation are used in each and every company where machines are involved and some or other process is involved. Over the next decade, robotic assistance will become a reality in almost every field of work and most other aspects of human life. The automation of work through robotics has led to a substantial increase in productivity.
The M.Tech. Program in Robotics and Automation Engineering is an interdisciplinary and unique Industry oriented Programme. it provides an academic curriculum from Mechanical Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Instrumentation Engineering, Electrical Engineering. The program provides top-quality expertise and skills for successful professional careers in research, technology development and design.
PO1. An ability to independently carry out research/ investigation and development work to solve practical problems.
PO2. An ability to write and present a substantial technical report/ document.
PO3. An ability to demonstrate a degree of mastery over the area of Robotics and Automation, including usage of modern engineering tools.
PO4. An ability to follow ethical principles, assess societal issues and understand the impact of preserving the environment and sustainable development.
PO5. An ability to manage project work by implementing business practices including risk and finance management.
PO6. An ability to function effectively as an individual or team member in multidisciplinary settings and engage in lifelong learning.
Value Added Courses
To minimize the industry-academia gap for research scholars, this proposed initiative aims to equip them with hands-on training on industry-based tools to make them industry-ready. An introductory course on Robotics conducted in two phases during the 1st year. After successful completion of the course, the student will be able to get an introductory understanding of robotics, understand types and areas of application of industrial robots, experience actuator control of robots based on sensor readings and improve problem solving skills, by finding solutions to various tasks. A course on Python Programming will be conducting in two phases during the second year. After successful completion of the course, the student will be able to design and develop Python applications.
