Out of 8 lakh engineering graduates, 60 per cent remain unemployed every year: AICTE

New Delhi, March 18: Over 60 per cent engineers graduating from technical institutions across the country remain unemployed, according to the All India Council for Technical Education. As per the institution, a total number of eight lakh engineers graduate every year. Reportedly, it records to a potential loss of 20 lakh man days annually.   Apart from this, less than 1 per cent of engineering students participate in summer internships and just 15 per cent of engineering programmes offered by over 3,200 institutions are accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA).   In a bid to change these numbers,…

The importance and uses of the educational robotics for the students

The robotics is the branch of the computer science, the mechanical engineering, and the electrical engineering that deals with the construction, the design, the operation and the application of robots as well as the computer systems for their control, sensory feedback, and information processing.   The educational robots strengthen  and support  the students skills, and they develop their knowledge through the creation, the design, the assembly and the operation of robots .   The educational robotics are very useful in learning that they improve the design and construction of creation which are given in the first instance and later mental form…

Why are schools obsessed with turning kids into robots?

Standardized tests aren’t the only way of measuring intelligence.   Anya Kamenetz is very clear when she says she didn’t set out to write about standardized testing. A 2014 New America fellow and lead education blogger at National Public Radio, she had already written two books about the future of education and wanted her next project to be about innovations in K-12 education. But as she began researching her new book, The Test: Why Our Schools are Obsessed with Standardized Testing—But You Don’t Have to Be, she found something surprising: Innovations weren’t at the center of the story for K-12….

How AR technology can help farmers stay relevant

Augmented reality(AR) and robotics are closely related . Both model their environment to some degree. Robotics uses that model to guide the behaviour of a machine , whereas AR uses it to provide an enhanced sensory experience to a human.   The exact nature of that enhanced experience is bounded only by available sensory, computational, and display (audio, haptic) hardware, and by how the data gathered can be usefully transformed into overlays that argument the natural perception of the human user. What is useful is a function of both the content of those overlays and the latency, how much lag…

College of Engineering Pune wins Robocon, to represent India in Tokyo!

When Anuj Phegade, a student from College of Engineering Pune (CoEP), came out of the final of Robocon in 2016, he was disappointed by the team’s loss in the competition by just three seconds.   However, this year the team led by Anuj came up with a better ‘bot’ (robot), determined to win. CoEP’s hard work paid off as they won the Abu National Robocon of 2017 on Saturday. The team will now represent India at the international Robocon at Tokyo.   Explaining the game, Yogesh Bhalerao , principal, MIT Academy of Engineering said, “All games are conducted between two…

Robotic Engineering: Scope in India

Let’s accept it. Robots have always fascinated us from our childhood. The entire idea of having someone else do the hard and mundane job with the help of the computer, while with sit back and relax is definitely interesting. However, with the development of technology and extensive research and experiments on robots, it has been found that the Robotics has much depth than can be seen. Much like the tip of the iceberg, the depth of which cannot be gauged with the naked eye. And the scope of opportunities with Robotic Engineering is also on the rise. Let’s take a…

Details and scope of Robotics Industry in India

Purpose The purpose of this article is to provide a basic information to the students from engineering colleges/technical institutions or the beginners who are interested to pursue their career in Robotic Industry.   Description Robotics defines as “technology dealing with the design, construction, and operation of robots”. Robotics encompasses such diverse areas of technology as mechanical, electrical, and electronic systems; computer hardware; and computer software. The Robot Institute of America defines a robot as a programmable, multifunctional manipulator designed to move material, parts, tools, or specialized devices, through variable programmed motions, for the performance of a variety of tasks.  …

Scope and Career Opportunities in Robotics

What is Robotics? A robot is an automatic mechanical device guided by a computer program or electronic circuitry which enables it to perform tasks assigned to it.
