Frequently Asked Questions
The world of robotics is growing fast and the demand for engineers with the right skills far exceeds the talent pool. This program represents an unique opportunity to develop and furnish these on-demand skills. The program will enable you to exhibit a rich portfolio by giving you exposure to hands on experience on robotics projects, both in simulation and on real hardware.
With this program you would be able to give an edge to your career graph. Towards the end of the program, you can Design, Build, Create & Deploy Robots & Algorithms that would make a huge difference in the field and kick-start your career as a Robotics Application Research Engineer, who are very RARE in this world.
The program is designed to give a strong research orientation combined with a problem based learning approach. It has the right balance of theory and practical application of the theory.
The first two terms concentrate on building a strong research orientation through course modules like
- “Introduction to Scientific Working” Introduction to Scientific Working, where you will learn the best ways to perform a literature survey, read, write a research paper and make sense of a robotic trends
- Mathematics for Robots & Control, that enables you to understand principles, logics, mathematical equations behind algorithms
- Autonomous Mobile Cognitive Robots, which will give you the basic foundation in the world of robots, from locomotion to perception needs of a Robot.
- you can choose your specialization from the following areas
- Perception – Speech/Vision/Touch - Playing with Sensors and how to extract the optimised data from the sensor data
- Learning & Adaptivity - Understand, Apply and come up with new techniques in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
- Mechatronics – Understand Mechanical and Electronic components of a robot and come-up with new control algorithms, manipulation and design robots that matter
- Cyber-Physical Systems - Smart Devices and Internet of Things for Industry 4.0 & Well Being
- The Third term focusses on Agile Project Development & Research Problem Formulatio
- A group project which aims to bring a robot to life
- Project Management Skills
- Expose you to opportunities in various industries
- Help you formulate a personalized Research Problem worthy of solving
The next 8 months, focus on Solving the Formulated Research Problem.
