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, Bangalore, Research & Development Establishment Engineers, Dighi, ISRO, Bangalore, VSSC Thiruvananthapuram, DEBEL, Bangalore, ADE, Bangalore, 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.
