B. Tech. in Robotics

FET
Rob 1

Overview

The world is rapidly moving towards human independent systems and processes in almost all aspects of life. Robotics is the primary driver of these systems. This happens through synergistic integration of various streams, namely, Mechanics and Mechanical Engineering, Electronics, and Computer Technology that enables to produce and enhance products and systems. The purpose of this programme is to enable students to be industry-ready when they graduate from this programme as professional robotics engineers.

Robots find their application in wide variety of industrial sectors like aerospace, automotive, manufacturing, communications, defense, electronics and healthcare. Developing a prototype that satisfies all the constraints of a given application and maintaining the software that controls the application is where robotics gains prominence. 

The B.Tech. in Robotics’ programme offered by Mechanical and Manufacturing Engineering department focuses on enabling future robotics professionals to integrate the principles of hardware, controls and software to optimize existing systems. Students would be trained to overcome obstacles and barriers in case specific applications by solving multi-disciplinary exercises and assignments. Students are exposed to application oriented software and analytical tools.

Objective

This programme –

  • Imparts knowledge of robotic systems and their sub systems.
  • Enhances the understanding of underlying engineering principles that govern the behaviour of robotic systems.
  • Teaches analytical modeling, simulation and analysis to study the behaviour of robotic systems.
  • Provides the skills to design, build and test robotic systems.
  • Trains students on personal development and interactive skills with a feel for society

Highlights

  • Minor Programme

    An additional program in which students can pursue a study of choice alongside the main degree. Students can register for this in consultation with faculty. This program is for aspirational candidates. Our program offers Electric Vehicles as a minor program and is open to all the engineering students in RUAS. 

  • Proctoral System

    Under the Proctoral System, every student is assigned a faculty member as a Proctor or a mentor. 

    These mentors offer guidance, support and encouragement to students, helping them as they progress along their academic journey. From the choice of electives to their academic performance, from attendance to meeting their credit requirements, students can approach these mentors with any and every query. 

    Proctors also interact with parents/​guardians and keep them updated on the progress of students.

    To ensure that they reap the benefits of the Proctoral System, students are advised to be in regular contact with their Proctors. 

  • A Semester Abroad

    We offer a program in which students can register a semester in the final year with a partner university, where students can do an internship or a project. 

  • Innovation Centre

    At the Innovation Centre, students team up with faculty members to bring their innovative ideas to life. 

    Ideas are assessed based on their relevance to — and impact on — society. These are then translated into working projects that are entered in national and international competitions, and for registration as patents.

  • Open Electives

    Students can choose from a multitude of open electives across faculties for credits. These are specially designed courses which offer a basic introduction for a holistic development.

  • Uses application-based learning.
  • Offers research opportunities.
  • Includes internship, training and placement support with various universities and industries worldwide.
  • Offers state of the art facilities in geotechnical tools, concrete, highway, hydraulics, environmental, geology, computer-aided applications, strength of materials and surveying
  • Includes expert guest lectures from various institutions and industries.
  • Includes workshop, industry visits, group discussions and debates.
  • Ensures small batches to encourage in-depth learning.
  • Includes group project and dissertation as output.

  • Our emphasis on applied brilliance translates into a campus that is buzzing with activity, whether in the form of guest lectures, seminars, workshops and industry events or student-organised activities and competitions. 
  • With 9 Faculties from different areas of study, multidisciplinary thinking is a way of life at RUAS.
  • From a host of eateries and cafes to convenience stores and coffee vending machines, our campus has been designed and developed to ensure that the needs of every student are met.
  • With access to RUAS’s numerous facilities, students are encouraged to participate in co-curricular sports and cultural events.
  • The University offers a range of on-campus accommodation options. Third party, off-campus hostels are also available.
