Eligibility Criteria

Bachelor’s degree (Masters Preferred) in Mechanical/Electrical/Electronics/Computer Science/Mechatronics/Instrumentation with some exposure to robotics or automation.


The course will comprise of the essential theoretical aspects of robotics from the basics to advanced applications. Each module will be integrated with hands on experiments and applications. There would also be invited speakers from industries and research laboratories to expose the participants to real world robotics applications and research. The course would be designed for teachers, researchers and industry personnel who would like to upgrade their skills in the areas of robotics and automation. Final assessment will be in terms of Quiz, written exams and practical project.
