Robotics and Automation

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).

Final year

"My journey as a final year Robotics and Automation student at Adi Shankara Institute of Technology has been nothing short of extraordinary. From the academics to the co-curricular activities, industrial visits, and placement opportunities, every aspect of my experience here has been filled with beauty, positivity, and immense growth. First and foremost, the academic program at ASIET has been outstanding. The faculty members are not just knowledgeable but also incredibly passionate about their subjects. Their dedication and support have been instrumental in shaping my understanding of robotics and automation. The well-structured curriculum, coupled with hands-on practical sessions, has given me a strong theoretical foundation and practical skills that I can confidently apply in the real world. But it's not all about the classroom; ASIET recognizes the importance of holistic development, and that's where co-curricular activities come into play. The college offers a plethora of clubs and societies, catering to a wide range of interests. I joined the Robotics Club, and it has been an incredible journey of creativity, innovation, and teamwork. The club provided me with a platform to work on exciting projects, participate in competitions, and learn from my peers. These experiences have not only enriched my technical skills but have also taught me valuable life lessons of perseverance and collaboration. Industrial visits have been a highlight of my time at ASIET. The college understands the significance of bridging the gap between theory and industry practices. The exposure we received during these visits to renowned robotics companies and manufacturing units gave us valuable insights into the practical applications of what we were learning. It was inspiring to witness how cutting-edge technologies were being utilized to solve real-world challenges. These visits have instilled in me a strong sense of purpose and motivation to excel in my chosen field. As I approach the end of my journey, I am filled with gratitude for the exceptional placement opportunities provided by ASIET. The college has a dedicated placement cell that works tirelessly to connect us with top-notch companies in the industry. Mock interviews, resume-building workshops, and personality development sessions have been immensely beneficial in preparing us for the professional world. The support and guidance we received throughout the placement process boosted our confidence, and I am delighted to share that many of my batchmates, including myself, have secured excellent job offers with leading robotics and automation companies. Overall, my experience at Adi Shankara Institute of Technology has been truly transformative. It's a place that fosters a culture of innovation, creativity, and growth. The campus ambiance, the warm friendships I've made, and the exposure to cutting-edge technology have made these four years unforgettable. I feel well-equipped to embark on my professional journey, and I am excited to contribute positively to the world of robotics and automation. I will forever cherish my time here and proudly call myself an ASIETian."
