Robotics engineering is an interdisciplinary branch of Electronics & Communication Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Electrical & Electronics Engineering. It introduces students to the domains of construction, design, application, and operation of robots. Recent developments in the field of robotics have helped in bringing forth a new era of technology and myriad career opportunities.

The newly-launched undergraduate programme at REVA University covers:

  • Advances in artificial intelligence and sensor technologies that allow robots to cope with a far greater degree of task-to-task variability.
  • The ability to adapt robotic actions in response to changes in their environment that will create opportunities for automation in the areas such as agriculture, industrial automation, healthcare, transportation and defense sectors.
  • Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) integrated by computer vision technologies that are the future industry trends achieved through robotics and automation.

The job role of robotics engineers usually includes working on the design of the models, assembling, testing machines, and maintaining the software that controls them. Robotic engineers are responsible for planning, testing, and building robots that are profitable, safe, and also easy to buy and maintain.
