Mechatronics is defined as “a synergistic combination of precision mechanical engineering, electronic control and systems thinking in the design of products and manufacturing processes". Mechatronics systems and subsystems appear across all industries, including automotive, aerospace, consumer electronics, machinery, equipment, and others. Mechatronics systems are excellent candidates for design process optimization due to the high complexity of Mechatronics designs, the high degree of integration of electrical, mechanical and information-processing components, the overlapping design disciplines and system behaviors, and the critical nature of optimizing of the overall system. The curriculum for this post-graduate programme provides the students thorough knowledge in hydraulics and pneumatics, MEMS advanced control systems, sensors and actuators, signal processing, robotics and automation, embedded systems, system design, embedded system, systems design and product development. The Laboratories are equipped with hardware and software to enhance the teaching of courses and research in this innovative engineering discipline. To develop problem solving ability, in-depth technical competence, problem identification, formulation and solution for Mechatronics problems and hands on skills to enter careers in Mechatronics. The programme is conducted by well-versed faculty, invited experts from reputed institutions and industries
Students may get placement in R&D organizations like DRDO, ISRO, CSIR, BARC etc. and modern industries involved in precision engineering, automotive, aerospace, process control, automation, robotics, computers, communications, electronics, health care, machine tools, power plants, as well as offers opportunities for higher studies and becoming qualified faculty in academic institutes.
