Branch - Mechanical Engineering
Mechatronics is an area of engineering that combines mechanical and electrical engineering and computer science. A typical mechatronic system picks up signals from the environment, processes them to generate output signals, transforming them into forces, motions and actions. A report by Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu Limited states that India is expected to be one of the most competitive manufacturing nations by 2020. Owing to this fact, the employment of mechanical engineers is projected to grow by 9% from 2016 to 2026, as fast as the average for all occupations.
The Industrial Mechatronic Systems course is designed to develop knowledgeable and skillful technocrats who can cater to the rising needs of industry and society for innovative and useful products and systems required in healthcare, communication, energy, transport, space and defence applications. This course will have a lucid description of the fundamentals of Mechatronics, interesting case studies and mini projects.
The eLearning content and interactive sessions will help students learn the principles of Mechatronics and apply them in practice. The planned quizzes will assess the performance of students on a regular basis. The knowledge gained in this course will be useful in understanding the working of existing Mechatronics based systems and in building newer ones.
Hands-on will be conducted using a physical kit-based setup which requires two sets of kits - PLC kit and Arduino kit. Arduino kit will be provided as part of the course depending on the number of registrations per institute (the same Arduino kit can also be used for hands-on experiments in TCS iON Industry Honour Certification - IoT and its Applications). The Arduino kit will be shared among 5 students from each institute on a time-sharing mode. This kit once received by the institute has to be tested as defect free within 2 working days of delivery and will become the responsibility of the institute. The institute will be responsible for maintaining and managing the kit, its usage and bear any costs involved. The PLC kit, that is already present in the college for practical use in the electrical/mechanical department also needs to be used for the course. The procurement process and the cost for any additional kits or peripherals required will have to be handled/borne by the institute. The same kits will be reused for summative assessments.+ Read More - Read Less

- This programme is envisaged to help build a strong foundation across various streams through digital lectures, practice and summative assessments, mini projects, mentorship from renowned industry and academic experts. Students will also get an opportunity to showcase their skills to potential recruiters.
- This programme is designed to continuously make academic content more relevant to students by integrating industry inputs, which is a compelling need of the industry.
- Any student who is enthusiastic about industry relevant skills can join the Industry Honour Certification programme pertaining to that skill.
- Internships and job opportunities will be provided subject to performance in the course, availability of opportunities or vacancies in the corporates who recognise the certification, and based on the corporate hiring policy.
- The duration of this programme is around 4 to 5 months, in sync with the universities'/institutions' semester.
- Students need to appear for the summative assessment at their college as per the course requirement. The students will be assessed in 2 stages.
- Part A is a test of knowledge, to assess the conceptual knowledge of a student, specific to the course. The question paper pattern will be similar to the practice tests.
- Part B is a test of application, to assess a student’s applied skills gained through this programme. For completing the assessment, students have to use Kit-1 and Kit-2 in the ratio of 1 kit per 5 students. A sample question will be available in the practice test similar to the ones in the actual test.
- The evaluation of summative assessment will be done by TCS iON.
- The summative assessment consists of total 100 marks with 50 marks each allotted for Part A and Part B. Part A is a summative assessment of one hour and Part B is a summative assessment of about two hours (actual duration may vary depending on the course).
- All students who attempt the summative assessment will receive a scorecard.
- The 'Certificate of Completion' is awarded to students who attempt the summative assessment and meet each of the following criteria:
- Part A score is greater than or equal to 40%
- Part B score is greater than or equal to 50%
- Overall assessment score is greater than or equal to 50 marks.
- Students who do not meet the above criteria will not receive a certificate.
- Students who do not attempt the summative assessment will not receive any certificate or scorecard.
- Students get access to 2 practice assessments. There are 2 attempts for each practice assessment. The students can appear for the summative assessment only once as per the slot selected by their respective universities or institutions.
- The student can appear for the re-exam by paying the pre-defined exam registration fees.
- The students can avail this programme through their institutions.
- Students are encouraged to check and update their basic profile details such as name, email ID etc. by navigating to Home >> My Account >> Update Profile. Please note that the profile details will be leveraged to generate course completion certificates.
- Once an institution or a student subscribes to the TCS iON Industry Honour Certification, no refund will be issued under any circumstances.
