History and Growth of the School
Robotic technology is influencing every aspect of humankind. Right from home automation, corporate sector, industries, healthcare sector to public places. It has the great potential to transform traditional work practices into smart operations by raising efficiency, safety, and ease of operation as desirable by humankind today. Along with the development of robots, trained human resources are required to operate and control the robots. With this view, the Department of Mechanical Engineering started the course of M.Tech in Mechanical engineering, specializing in robotics in 2015.
Later with the advancements and multi-domain contents of the course and to justify its interdisciplinary nature in a real sense, the School of Robotics is established. This course started running under the umbrella of the School of Robotics from the 2020-2022 batch.School of Robotics has the involvement of faculties from different departments of DIAT such as Electronics, Computer Science, Mathematics, etc. It is based upon the subjects covered under the M.Tech program.The course is designed to provide insights into many domains of Robotics technology. Hence, experts from different departments of DIAT and outside experts in academic or scientists are offered the subjects. For the dissertation work of one year, as a part of the course curriculum, students may get an opportunity to work with various Robotics labs across India such as CAIR, Banglore, Research & Development Establishment Engineers, Dighi, ISRO, Banglore, VSSC Thiruvananthpuram, DEBEL, Banglore, ADE, Banglore, etc. They may get an internship on the relevant robotics research project. Students will receive a degree in their graduation branch with a Robotics specialization at the end of the course.
Vision: To develop an innovative solution based interdisciplinary research platform to achieve academic and research excellence for the next generation
Mission: To work on research problems and innovative projects that extend state of the art in robotics
M.Tech in Robotics
On completion of M. Tech. Programme, the specific outcome of the programme is to
- Provide human resources equipped with advanced applied knowledge in Robotic systems and related technologies to fulfill the needs of DRDO, tri-services, and Defence PSU’s, thereby making the country self-reliant Robotics.
- Associate with multi-disciplinary teams working on significant projects demanding global competencies.
- Collaborate with DRDO labs, DPSUs, industries, and universities of repute in higher education, training, and research, Review the literature data – gap analysis
- Are expected to apply analytical skills and modeling methodologies to recognize, analyze, synthesize and implement operational solutions to engineering problems, product design and development, and manufacturing
- Articulate strategies, modeling, analysis, and testing of mechatronic products, systems, and controllers using appropriate technology and software tools.
