The B.Tech.Program in Information Science and Engineering with specialization in Artificial Intelligence and Robotics offered by Presidency University is a skill –oriented program which aims to prepare students for new age careers. Students will learn how to integrate AI and robotics technology into business models, design new products or services, and transform processes to achieve greater efficiency, better customer experiences and social prosperity.
It is an interdisciplinary program that includes Electrical, Electronics, Computer science, Mechatronics, Artificial Intelligence and Machine learning subjects. The powerful combination of AI and Robotics is opening the door to entirely new automation possibilities. Robotics is said to be the next technological revolution, currently, artificial intelligence and machine learning are being applied in limited ways and enhancing the capabilities of industrial robotic systems. We have yet to reach the full potential of robotics and AI and Machine learning, but current applications are very promising. The right blend of AI and Robotics help students to become an expert in this lucrative field.
The department offers Industry oriented curriculum. The primary focus of the curriculum is to impart technical know-how to students, promote their problem solving skills and innovation of new technologies. We have introduced various skill development programs and Industrial training to equip the students with hands on training in the fields of Robotics, Human Machine interface, Machine vision, Machine learning, Artificial Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, MATLAB and Python programming. Department offers large number of optional courses for providing wide spectrum of opportunities to the students to pursue their interest. The course contents are periodically updated for introducing new courses.
The graduates can also plan to pursue higher studies after BTech. They can go for master’s degree courses like M.Tech Robotics, M.Tech Robotics and Automation, etc. Those who want to conduct research in the field of robotics can further pursue a Ph.D. in Robotics.
The graduates of this course can find jobs in private manufacturing & design companies, public organizations, military & defense, education, agriculture, healthcare, etc. They can work as Robotics Engineer, Robotics Designer & Analyst, Robotics Sales Engineer, Robotic Research Scientist, etcIt is a multidisciplinary course, so the candidates will not only have options to find a job in a robotic industry, but they will also be able to find jobs in IT, electronics, manufacturing sectors , AI & ML, etc.
The graduates will have numerous job opportunities as the robotics industry is growing and the demand for skilled robotic professionals is also growing. Companies like Amazon and Flipkart are offering starting salaries of Rs. 12 – 18 lakhs per annum (LPM) for graduates with skills in Robotics and AI.
Number of start ups and investments by Venture Capitalists in Robotics and AI space are growing at a rapid pace, promising higher salaries and better opportunities in future. Candidates pursuing this course will be able to think out of the box and come up with new innovations that can help humans ease their life.
