Mechatronics integrates mechanical engineering, electronics, computer and control systems engineering, towards creating intelligent, cost-effective future state-of-the-art systems. Many industries benefit from mechatronics, aerospace, automobile, transportation, medical few such industries. Machine learning and intelligence of systems can also be studied under mechatronicswith a blend of mechanical engineering which will create value than a similar study focused on software aspect.
Department of Mechanical Engineering is starting Mechatronic Systems Engineering as a Stream with qualified staff personnel and equipment to deliver a world class exposure to mechatronics. The multidisciplinary stream will expose the students to new avenues in industry, enabling the students to approach emerging industries and world-class companies; thus reaching high pay scales and reputation.
Academic activities will be conducted under well experienced multidisciplinary academic team specialized in mechatronics, Micro-mechatronics, Biomedical engineering, Micro/Nano Electro Mechanical streams (MEMS/NEMS), Nanotechnology. To cater the quality and demands, mechatronics, micro-mechatronics, automation laboratories have high-tech laboratory equipment, computers, simulation software packages, data acquisition systems, virtual instruments, robotic design tools used in industry, sensors and actuator design and testing tools etc.
Further, students are encouraged to participate in local and international Mechatronic Systems design competitions which is a good platform to showcase and nurture their skills. Guest lectures and industrial visits also will be conducted frequently.
