Welcome to the Department of Automation and Robotics. The Department, established in the year 2020-21, with an intake of 60, is approved by All India Council for Technical Education and is affiliated to Maharashtra State Board of Technical Education.

Automation has become the key word for the development of any industry. And with the onset of the “Make in India movement”, there is going to be a huge demand for engineers in the emerging areas of technology. Automation and Robotics is one such emerging field identified by the All India Council for Technical Education.

The Diploma Programme, Automation and Robotics, comprises two main areas : (1) Automation, which deals with use of computers or robots, and information technologies for handling different processes and machineries in an industry and (2) Robotics, which combines construction, operation, and application of robots coupled with computer-based control systems, sensory feedback, and information processing. This is a discipline that gives equal emphasis on hardware as well as software development. Hence the curriculum of this Diploma Program gives emphasis on Basics of Robotics, Robotic Programming, Sensors and Actuators used in Automation and Robotics, electronics, electrical controls & components such as servo systems, hydraulics & pneumatics, Automation tools such as PLC, SCADA, and DCS etc.

The Department has well Qualified Faculty members and well Equipped Laboratories to impart the required technical skills in students. Regular industrial training, Visits and expert lectures are also conducted for the students so that they become aware of the recent trends in the industry. Along with technical knowledge, the Department also focuses on overall personality development of students. They are constantly encouraged to participate in various co-curricular activities like technical paper presentations, Quiz, Project Exhibitions etc and extracurricular activities such as Singing & Dance competitions, Literary Skill Competitions etc.
The Department leaves no stones unturned to make its students well prepared to face this challenging world and aspires for their bright future.
