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. It is a system that contains sensors, control systems, manipulators, power supplies and software, all of which work together. Robotics is the branch of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and computer science that deals with the design, construction, operation, and application of robots,as well as computer systems for their control, sensory feedback, and information processing. These technologies deal with automated machines that can take the place of humans in dangerous environments or manufacturing processes,…

What is Mechatronics? Scope and Career Opportunities

What is Mechatronics? Mechatronics is a field of engineering that includes study with a combination of various engineering disciplines such as mechanical, electrical, telecommunication, control and computer engineering. The aim of mechatronics is a design process that unifies all the above disciplines of engineering. Mechatronics industry employs both engineers to design and develop equipments and technicians to maintain it. Career Options in Mechatronics The profession of mechatronics includes technicians and engineers. They design and maintain automated equipment. Technicians and engineers work in laboratories, offices or on-site manufacturing plants. The goal is to produce safe and efficient automated equipment. Technicians primarily…

The programme is made after clubbing mechanical, electronics, computer and systems design engineering streams. Mechatronics programme strengthens the students with the skills that allow them to design, construct and run factory production lines and automated processes. Students studying this course are well equipped with the skills that they can use in computers, micro-controllers, programmable logical controllers, programming, industrial sensors, hydraulic, pneumatic and electric drives, design of mechanical structure and mechanism and manufacturing process. Talking about its application areas, they range from power systems to…

So why learn robotics?

Robotics can be very dynamic to the point of being intimidating. However, robotics helps the young people of today develop skills which are essential for life.   Skills such as critical thinking, decision making, public speaking, being able to work in a team and creative thinking are important for a student’s life in the present and the future. Robotics is not just about building and programming robots but designing, programming, modifying and getting the the root of problems and overcoming challenges.   It builds the resilience of our youth and gets them acquainted with real life engineering challenges and allows…

It’s time we let our kids ‘tinker’

One million children will be cultivated as neoteric innovators — this is the vision of the Atal Innovative Mission. In fact, the Niti Aayog is in the process of establishing 500 Atal Tinkering Laboratories in schools across India towards realising this vision. The objective is to foster in young minds curiosity, creativity and imagination and to inculcate skills like “design mindset”, computational thinking, adaptive learning and so on. The workspaces generated by the new laboratories, along with appropriate tools and equipment, will provide hands-on, DIY (do-it-yourself) experiences. The focus, as expected, will be STEM (science, technology, engineering, maths), which is…
