M.Tech. Robotics Engineering

Details

The Master's Program in Robotics Engineering is an interdisciplinary program composed of Electronics Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Aerospace Engineering, and Mechatronics Engineering. Robotics is becoming increasingly prominent in a variety of sectors (e.g.  manufacturing, health, and remote exploration of hostile environments such as space and the deep sea) and as autonomous and semi-autonomous systems that interact with people physically and socially. It covers important aspects of Modern Robotics such as Autonomous Systems, Field Robotics, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Computer Vision, Mobile Robots, Rehabilitation Robots, Embedded Systems, Modelling and Control Systems. Over the next decade, robotic assistance will become a reality in almost every field of work and most other aspects of human life. This degree will help in creating trained and qualified manpower in this area.

UPES’ curriculum framework is holistic in its overall structure and yet focuses on the individual need of the student to discover, experience, explore and challenge. Along with the core subject, students have the option to choose from subject-focused specialisations. They are also allowed to choose minor/exploratory subject from other schools at UPES that are: School of Engineering, School of Computer Science, School of Law, School of Business, School of Health Sciences, School of Design, School of Modern Media, and School of Liberal Studies.

Further, based on the multifaceted needs of the global workplace and evolving lifestyles, the curriculum offers Signature and Life-Skills courses through School for Life. To round off this learning experience, students are required to do mandatory internships in the social sector, government/public sector, and industry. The combinations available for students to pick and choose from are endless, ensuring both depth and width of knowledge.
