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.
1. Students/Institutions need to procure the following kits required for the industry assignment as well as for Part B summative assessment:
- a. Arduino kit
- b. 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
2. The above mentioned hands-on configuration will be leveraged by the students to complete the industry assignment as well as to complete the Part B section of the summative assessment.
