Robotics and Automation Engineering

Q: What do students learn in “Robotics and Automation Engineering” at Sister Nivedita University?

Ans: The robotics is a combined branch of engineering and science which deals with the study of development, operation, and control of intelligent robots. They can have both hardware and software-oriented training. There would be provision for hands on experience in working with industrial manipulator, mobile robot, and a humanoid would
Robotics engineering is a combination of computer science, mechanical engineering, and electrical engineering. The robotics technology is used for the development of machines which can perform a complex human task in a very efficient way.

Q:What do you mean by Automation?

Ans: Industrial automation or Automation is the use of control systems, such as computers or robots, and information technologies for handling different processes and machinery in an industry to replace a living being in such operations. It is the second step beyond mechanization in Industrial work.

Q:What is robotics engineering?

Ans:Robotics engineering is a field of study which focuses on the process of building machines that replicate human actions. A robotics engineer creates the autonomous machine for industries such as mining, manufacturing, automotive, defence services and more.
