M. Tech Mechatronics Engineering course is centered on the Internet of Things (IoT), Robotics, and Artificial Intelligence (AI.). The synergistic combination of these technologies has made it possible to develop simpler, more economical, reliable, and versatile systems. This is an upcoming course that is a need of the day.

M.Tech in Mechatronics program will strengthen the students with the skills that will allow them to design, construct and run automated processes based on IoT, Robotics & AI which will be the major automation trends in Industry 4.0.

Nowadays, there is a huge demand for AI and Robotics in different sectors including manufacturing, health, automobile, and others. Artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics are powerful techniques for automating tasks inside and outside of the factory setting. In recent years, AI has become an increasingly common presence in robotic solutions, introducing flexibility and learning capabilities in previously rigid applications.

Mechatronics engineers aren’t the only ones that will be affected by IoT devices, but with their critical influence over manufacturing technology, it’s going to be important to have responsible mechatronics engineers out there. Robotics, with the improvement of AI technology, is another mechatronics-influenced field taking off right now.

Overall the course is structured in such a way that will give a well-rounded knowledge and practical training to the student on which he can build further and become a valuable contributor in the professional world.
