The department of Robotics and Automation is established to meet the growing demand for trained engineers in the field of industrial automation. This is a futuristic cross-sectional discipline that requires a sound, proportional knowledge of hardware as well as software. This unique program is tailored to train and mold quality automation engineers to meet the needs of various engineering fields
Why a course in Robotics & Automation
The recent developments in process industries and the medical field clearly show the increasing demand for automation and the use of robots for various applications. Studies state that in the coming years most of the human jobs currently done will be managed by robots/ robotic machines with and without intelligence. Advances in artificial intelligence and machine learning have helped robotics to spread its wings outside industrial ecosystems. Robotics is a field of engineering that deals with the design and application of robots and the use of a computer for their manipulation and processing. Robots are used in industries for speeding up the manufacturing process and this has created an emerging area of research called Robotic Process Automation. They are also used in the field of medicine, nuclear science, sea-exploration, servicing of transmission electric signals, designing of bio-medical equipment, etc. Robotics requires the application of computer integrated manufacturing, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, biological mechanics, software engineering. Automation and Robotics Engineering is the use of sensors, actuators, control systems and information technologies to reduce the need for human intervention. In the scope of industrialization, automation is a step beyond mechanization. This course will equip the students to enhance their technical skills to suit the changing requirements of the engineering society. There is a wide scope of higher education and entrepreneurship in the field of robotics.
Scope of Robotics & Automation
Increasing the demand for quality products and services at low cost has led industries towards automation and robotics engineering. Shortly, robotics and automatic systems will be replacing human intervention in several hazardous places including mining. The manufacturing industry also requires a specialized workforce to replace manual human laborers. The field is dynamic and has lots of arms like designing, maintenance, functional, and programming (software and hardware).
