This programme integrates Robotics and Mechatronics. Robotics emphasise on synergistic integration of mechanical structures, mechanisms, electrical and electronic components, electromechanical sensors and actuators, microcontrollers, and programming, whereas Mechatronics, covers synergistic integration of mechanical engineering, control theory, computer science, and electronics to manage complexity, uncertainty, and communication in engineered systems. Programme is offered in multi-disciplinary nature, which combines mechanical, electronics and computing engineering and will add versatility to the graduates' capabilities. Graduates will be able to adapt flexibly to a wide range of industries, and make contributions in developing new technologies and pioneering new approaches in production. Graduates will also be able to upgrade their knowledge and skills by pursuing their studies in local or overseas universities. The programme prepares graduates to learn how to build robots and gadgets as required in specialized areas such as automation and robotics, wafer fabrication, aerospace or biomedical engineering.
The B.Tech degree in Robotics and Mechatronics will provide a curriculum spread through class room learning and experiential learning through hands on, Internship, and project work. Students will learn fundamental theory, modeling methods, hardware components, interfacing requirements, simulation and programming tools, and practical applications of mechatronics and robotics. Specifically, real-world mechatronics and robotics systems will provide an avenue for physics-based system modeling. In addition to mechanical aspects, students will learn about building-blocks of mechatronics and robotics, i.e., sensing, actuation, computing technologies, and algorithms, thus being introduced to real-world tools used by practicing professionals. Having learned the fundamental theory, modeling, hardware, and programming tools through core courses, students can specialize in one of three areas, namely, assistive mechatronic and robotic technologies; mobile robotics; or microrobotics.
