B.Tech in Robotics & Cyber-Physical SystemsSolutions to grand challenges increasingly require reaching across the boundaries of the cyber, physical & human worlds. The Robotics & Cyber-Physical Systems program is different from traditional electrical & mechanical engineering programs & is designed to target the growing & unmet need at the intersection of computing, mechatronics, & human behavior. Students will be able to design engineering systems that interact with humans & environment & create solutions to tackle some of India’s & the world’s most pressing grand challenges. Application Deadline : Mar 21, 2021
What can you create?
Autonomous VehiclesYou can create autonomous vehicles such as self-driving cars, that are capable of sensing their environment and can communicate with adjacent vehicles to avoid accidents, reduce traffic and ensure that no traffic rules are violated.
Digital agriculture solutionsYou can create digital agriculture solutions that enable farmers to monitor aspects like irrigation, crop yield, environmental conditions, etc., through low-cost sensors, drones, and mobile communications and data across the agricultural value chain. By driving adoption of such solutions, you can enable farmers to boost sustainable farming practices and maximise return from their crop.
Smart citiesYou can help conceptualize and build exciting “Smart Cities” of the future, which have smart interconnected systems for transportation, energy distribution, healthcare, environmental monitoring, emergency response and more, while preserving aspects of safety, security and privacy.
Medical roboticsYou can design and develop wearable prostheses that adapt to a patient’s injuries and guide individualized exercises in conjunction with a remote therapist, build robots that perform meticulous and high-risk surgeries, real-time patient health monitoring and various other solutions that revolutionize healthcare.
Industrial and consumer robotsYou can build robots to perform tasks that create economic value and simplify our lives, such as industrial robots used in manufacturing and logistics processes, to even robots that clean our homes!
Multidisciplinary approach & interdisciplinary perspective
Interacting with and drawing from multiple fields of expertise, making connections between disciplines, analyzing the humanistic, socio-economic, and technical contexts of problems.
Foundational Tech core
Developing an interdisciplinary foundation featuring math, physics, computer science and engineering principles such that they come together as an integrated whole, not segmented topics.
