Required background

A bachelor's degree in any technology or engineering field is required to successfully enrol in and complete this programme. Students in their third year of graduation may also enrol in this programme.

Software requirements:

MATLAB, SOLIDWORKS, Arduino IDE, Windows OS (to-date)

These software versions are verified to work with IITG labs. You can use the latest available (and most stable) versions of the software, if backward and forward compatibility is supported.

Skills you will gain

  • Machines
  • Mechanics, Sensing and Control of Robots
  • Mechatronics
  • Classical mechanics


In this programme, you will learn the fundamental principles of mechatronics and the mechanics, sensing, and control of robots. Mechatronics and robotics systems are crucial for the development of automation and other emerging technologies that are driving the development of innovative industry solutions.

As you advance through the programme, you’ll learn to:

  • Analyse and design mechanisms
  • Represent robots mathematically in equations
  • Perform forward and inverse kinematics of various robotic manipulators, conduct their velocity analysis and statics, and do robot planning
  • Control manipulators and wheeled mobile robots
  • Work with microcontrollers nd design programmable motion control systems

Engineering graduates (Mechanical/CSE/Electrical/Electronics and Communications/Civil) and industry professionals interested in building a career in robotics and mechatronics will find this programme useful.
