Automated machines, such as robots, have proven to be incredibly valuable in the modern day for a variety of applications, ranging from assisting humans around the house to industrial applications such as assembling and packing items and assisting doctors in completing intricate surgeries. While the area of robots was still in its infancy two years ago, the epidemic has dramatically increased its use and compelled businesses to use this technology to improve their bottom line.
As a result of these advancements in the field of robotics, many Indian colleges and universities are now offering high-quality robotics engineering courses. Learners can now choose between a master’s degree program in robotics and a bachelor’s degree program in robotics to get a head start in the robotics business.
Indian Institute Of Technology, Kanpur
- Course Offered: M.Tech. in Robotics Engineering
In conjunction with the Centre for Robotics at IIT, Kanpur, the Mechanical Engineering Department of Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur offers an MTech and PhD program in robotics.
