Automation & Robotics
New Engineering Course - Approved by AICTE New Delhi
Course Code - 516291610


Introduction:


Department of Automation and Robotics Engineering is recently established by the Institute from A.Y. 2021-22 with a UG program of intake capacity of 60. This program is approved by AICTE, New Delhi and Affiliated to the Savitribai Phule Pune University. Automation is an indispensable part of the manufacturing industry, the majority of companies today are looking for lean manufacturing solutions and Robotics provide many benefits that companies require to stay competitive. Robotics is a key technology player in Industrial Revolution 4.0 and its impact assessment demands a futuristic outlook to live through its complete evolution. Adoption of robots have started making repetitive and assembly line kind of jobs redundant in sectors like automobiles, pharma, IT and ITES, financials, electronics…the labour force is changing and it will continue in India for the next several years.

A futuristic and forward looking vision is specifically important for India as robotics is still novel and its impact and consequences are yet to unfold.

What is Automation and Robotics ?

Automation and Robotics Engineering is an emerging multi-disciplinary course that requires profound application based knowledge in hardware as well as software development, which comprise design, construction, operation, and application of robots. The design of a robotic system puts together basics of mechanical engineering, manufacturing engineering, electrical/electronics Engineering, and Computer engineering. A specialized undergraduate degree in Automation and Robotics Engineering will enable students to serve the Industry requirement for implementation of new and smart autonomous technologies covering methods of synthesis, analysis and optimization of newer robots and mechanisms. Automation and Robotics Engineering involves design development and up-gradation in terms of automating products, systems and processes in every aspect of life. The graduate of this course will hit upon abundant opportunities to work as Robot design engineer, robot programmers, robotics system engineer etc. in the field of industrial automation, manufacturing, automobile, agriculture, mining, aerospace, defence, social and health care.

The department has a well-qualified, devoted and experienced faculty with average experience more than 10 Years. Two faculty members are with Ph.D. qualification and others with master’s degree in relevant field. Department is well equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and Laboratories like Robotics Lab, e-yantra VLSI embedded lab (IIT Powai support),Automation and control Lab, CAD/CAM Lab, Robotic Simulation Lab etc. with excellent computational facilities including professional software packages, such as MATLAB, SolidWorks, Do-NC, Coppeliasim and Robotstudio robot simulator etc. Workshop is an excellent Manufacturing centre with state of the art machines including CNC, VMC, CMM and other industry grade machines.
