The growth of Automation & Robotics has been tremendously high in the recent years and the next few years are to witness stupendous advancements in robotic technology especially with the advent of Industry 4.0. Consequent to this paradigm shift in technology, Undergraduate course in Automation & Robotics has become one of the top most career choices among the aspirants. Automation & Robotics is an interdisciplinary branch which amalgamates various fields of Engineering that include Mechanical, Electronics, Computer Science, Sensors and Instrumentation, Industrial Automation, Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning, Nanotechnology, Bio Engineering, Machine Vision and many more.
Automation & Robotics 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 mechanical engineering, manufacturing engineering, electrical/electronic Engineering, and Computer engineering. An undergraduate degree in Robotics and Automation Engineering specialization will enable students to serve the Industry requirement for implementation of new and smart technologies covering methods of synthesis, analysis and optimization of newer robots and mechanisms. Robotics & Automation Engineering involves design development and up-gradation in terms of automating products, systems and processes in every walk of human life. The graduate of this course will find ample opportunities to work as Robot design engineer, robot programmers, robotics system engineer etc. in the field of industrial automation, manufacturing, agriculture, mining, Civil, aerospace, healthcare and defense.
The department of Automation and Robotics is going to start 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 DBATU, Lonere. The department of Automation and Robotics is established to meet the growing demand for trained engineers in the field of Robotics and industrial Automation. Robotics and Automation Engineering is a cross functional discipline that requires sound, proportional knowledge in hardware as well as software development and their applications. In the present era of mass customization, industries have to produce personalized product with a large quantities and at lower cost. This has led to real time scheduling which can be performed only by machines and robots. Hence there is a great requirement of robots. Thus to remain competitive in market, Indian industries will have no choice other than to adopt the advanced technologies of Robotics and Automation. Therefore there will be huge need of robots and thereby robotics engineers in near future.
