What is Automation and Robotics

If you fantasised about designing a ‘RoboCop’ or were awe-struck with ‘Iron Man’ powers; you may have an inclination towards pursuing automation and robotics course. Automation and robotics is a specialised engineering branch that provides in-depth knowledge in the areas concerning electro-mechanics, robotic sensors, automatic system and artificial intelligence. The course also deals with designing robots, maintaining them, developing new applications and research in the automation system. Concepts like auto-driven cars are the genesis of automation and robotics course.

Eligibility Criteria (UG & PG) of Automation and Robotics

  • For UG:  The candidate should have passed 10+2 examination from CBSE or any other equivalent examination board with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics as core subjects. The candidates should also fulfil minimum qualifying marks in aggregate of the subjects.
  • For PG: The candidate should have a B.Tech degree with a minimum passing percentage in an aggregate of the subjects studied at undergraduate level.

Scope of Automation and Robotics in India and Abroad

  • Increasing demand for quality products and services at low cost has led industries towards automation and robotics engineering.
  • In near future, robotics and automatic systems will be replacing human labour force in a number of hazardous places including mining.
  • The industry requires specialised workforce to replace manual labourers who will be in charge of the automated machines and robots.

How is nit silchar in terms of placement for control and industrial automation??

Suvakanta Sahu 9th Sep, 2020

Dear Rupesh ,

National Institute of Technology  Silchar is ranked at 51  in the Engineering category by NIRF Ranking 2019, making it one of the leading technical institutes in India. NIT Silchar has had a great placement record with more than 86% of B.Tech students getting placed last year, with an average annual CTC of INR 6.25 LPA. The highest package offered was for INR 32.5 LPA, from Arcesium India Pvt Ltd.  Placement is very goo .On considering students with above 6. 5 CGPA, almost good percent gets placed in ECE and CSE branch. Although it is a little less in other branches. Few companies like ITC, L&T Infotech, Cap Gemini, Samsung R&D, TATA etc visits every year. But as per your specific industrial automation is not good according to placements .

Hope it will helpful
