Robotics and Automation Sandwich Program

The Scope Of Study

CPAT-TVS offers a 31/2-year Sandwich Program in Robotics and Automation Engineering.

Autonomous and remotely operated systems are being implemented worldwide in manufacturing industries to reduce risk to human workers and to improve quality of products. The same being deployed to improve the quality of lives through robot-assisted medical rehabilitation and care.

A collaborative expertise in the field of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and computer science is necessary in order to develop such systems. This increased demand of efficiencies and safety in manufacturing industry/health sector has led to an immediate need for engineers/technicians with an added expertise in the field of Robotics and Automation. Robotics and Automation Engineering is an independent branch of engineering deals with design, construction, operation, and application of robots coupled with computer based control systems for the production of goods and services. This seven semester sandwich diploma program is aimed to prepare students for a career in this field of Robotics and Automation.

A specialization with Sandwich Diploma in Robotics & Automation Engineering will enable students to fulfill the Industry requirement for implementation of new and smart technologies in production system. 

Description Of The Program

This program provides comprehensive educational platform to build a solid and broad understanding of latest developments and issues in Robotics and Automation Systems.

This program puts emphasis on the design of modern Robotic systems for digital manufacturing. It provides solid foundation in the fundamentals of mathematics, engineering mechanics, electrical systems, electronics, sensors, computer programming, manufacturing technology and technical writing to enable students acquire the necessary attributes to become technically proficient in this new dynamic field.

The special courses students take in this program includes Values, Yoga and Meditation, Business Economics & Entrepreneurship, High School Math and Science, Functional English, CNC Programming & Machining, Pneumatics & Hydraulics, Power Electronics and Drives, PLC & HMI, Embedded Systems, CAD- CAM, Industrial Networks and Image Processing.

Continual revision and up gradation of the curriculum ensures exposure to new technology and new industrial practices in Engineering and Services. Students get to study under experienced faculty members and factory supervisors and managers.

This program prepares students for a diverse array of employment opportunities and to pursue further education.

Courses Offered

The In-Plant Training Program

During the 4th and 7th semester, students undergo in plant training in state-of-the-art industries where they receive hands-on experience with GPMs, CNC Machines, Robots, CAD/CAM, Electro-Pneumatics and Hydraulics, Industrial Instrumentation, Electrical Drives, Sensor Testing & Trouble Shooting, PLC, HMI, Industrial communications, Advanced Microcontrollers and Computing Systems. They understand industrial manufacturing systems, quality concepts, and undertake live industrial projects as vital parts of their IPT.

During the 7th semester students gets a learning opportunity through industry platform and a comprehensive project linked to the challenging needs of industry which enable the students to further test and develop knowledge and skills. This also expands the opportunity of self-employment.
