The best robotics courses after school


Corresponding Associated Market Research, the global robotics technology market size was estimated at US$62.75 billion in 2019 and is expected to reach US$189.36 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 13.5 percent. To meet the growing demand for robotics experts, institutes around the world are offering specialized courses. But in India, most full-time courses in robotics are offered at the postgraduate level (since robotics requires knowledge of multiple disciplines). Below we have compiled a list of graduate and postgraduate courses in robotics.

IIT Madras

The interdisciplinary dual degree program in Robotics at IIT Madras focuses on construction professionals who can contribute to the design, development and implementation of robotic systems. The course teaches basic robotic technologies used in various applications, kinematics, dynamics and control of industrial and field/service robots, application of AI, neural networks and reinforcement learning in robotics, design of robotic systems for new applications, etc.

Aerospace engineering, applied mechanics, civil engineering, computer science and engineering, electrical engineering, design engineering, mechanical engineering and marine engineering offer the dual study program.

The program is open to a B. Tech student or an IIT Madras dual degree student in any discipline except Life Sciences. The student should have a CGPA of 8.0 or higher by the 5th semester.

Colorado Mining School

  • Computer Science and Robotics and Intelligent Systems: Students can study Computer Science (CS) and choose a major from Computer Science + Robotics and Intelligent Systems. The students also attend courses from the fields of mechanical engineering and electrical engineering. The course will help students understand “how to bring systems to life and give machines the ability to work autonomously”.
  • Mechanical engineering robotics, automation and construction: Mechanical engineering students can choose robotics courses as compulsory electives. Here the students get to know the basic mechanisms, modelling, control and design of robotic systems.
  • Bachelor of Science in Engineering-Robotics and Automation Major: For the Bachelor of Science in Engineering, students can choose from a variety of majors, including iRobotics and Automation.

Mechatronics and Robotics – The University of Sheffield

The three-year course teaches engineering skills in areas such as mechatronics and robotics such as mechanical design, electronics, computers, intelligent systems and controls.

In the first year, students are taught fundamental knowledge in areas such as mathematics, computer science, control, electronics and embedded systems. You will learn how to control robotic systems and work in teams to design, analyze, and test robots, autonomous vehicles, and other electromechanical systems.

Topics covered in the second year include advanced control theory, programming (C++), mechanical design, intelligent systems, etc. Students apply these skills to design a system using 3D CAD tools. Students can build this system in the university’s iForge Makerspace.

In the final year, students opt for subject modules covering robotics and artificial intelligence (machine learning), digital signal processing, and rapid control prototyping. Students also work on an individual project.
