Mechatronics Engineering

The Mechatronics department was started in the year 2013. The department offers four year B.E. Mechatronics. The department has a team of highly qualified, dedicated and motivated faculty and well equipped laboratories. The field of Mechatronics encomposes many exciting subjects such as Robotics and Automation, Machine Vision, Rapid Prototyping, Hydraulic and Pneumatics, Automotive Electronics, Sensors and Instrumentation, Intelligent Systems and real time embedded system which is a fast growing technologies that enable the development of automation in the modern knowledgeable society.

Automation is the future of engineering and it all begins here at the department of Mechatronics. The discipline is not simply a combination of mechanical and electronics but it is much beyond this combination and it inculcates the broader spectrum of engineering knowledge to meet the demands of future requirements. To prepare industry ready engineers of future, the department has a right blend of faculty members having expertise in Mechanical, Electronics and Mechatronics engineering. The department of Mechatronics Engineering was established in the year 2013, offering B.E. in Mechatronics Engineering. The department has well developed laboratory infrastructure which bridges the gap between industry and academia. It also provides consultancy services to the industries. The department regularly invites people from the industry to interact with the faculty and students to update them with the current know how’s and also to make them understand the needs of various Industries. Industrial automation, Robotics, Automotive Electronics, Mechanical Design, Noise and Vibration are the thrust areas of research.
