Robotic and Automation program


In the past few decades, a fourth industrial revolution has emerged, known as Industry 4.0. Industry 4 takes the emphasis on digital technology to a whole new level with the help of interconnectivity through the Internet of Things (IoT), access to real-time data, and the introduction of cyber-physical systems. It connects the physical system with digital, and allows for better collaboration and access across departments, partners, vendors, product, and people. Industry 4 empowers business owners to better control and understand every aspect of their operation, and allows them to leverage instant data to boost productivity, improve processes, and drive growth.

Robotics and automation are considered as one of the integral and significant parts of Industry 4.0. In the current era, automated machines like robots have turned out to be extremely beneficial for various sectors - starting from assisting humans around the house to industrial applications like assembling and packing products and helping doctors in performing complex surgeries. This new development has opened a door for enormous opportunities for the skilled and trained professionals.

The B.Tech program in Robotics and Automation at SIT is designed to equip the students with the right set of skills required for the Industry 4.0. With a B.Tech degree in Robotics and automation, and will acquire the multidisciplinary skills which is the demand of today’s corporate and business world.
