The B.Tech. program in Mechatronics is one of the newly introduced programs under the umbrella of the Department of Mechatronics established in the academic year 2005-2006. The department, apart from the undergraduate program, is engaged in many other activities such as industrial consultancy, industrial training, research, organizing seminars and conferences.
Undergraduate
The programs offered by the department are interdisciplinary and they draw faculty members from mechanical engineering and electrical sciences along with other basic servicing departments. Well-trained faculty members with experience in imparting knowledge to the students are grouped in this department.
Faculty & research
The members of faculty have vast industrial experience and they are engaged in consultancy. A few faculty members are currently processing their research proposals for submitting to funding agencies. The proposals submitted relate to the current needs of the industry like machine vision and creation of fully automatic manufacturing systems.

Major events & achievements
This young department is already planning to hold a national conference in the current academic year, besides inviting guest lectures by experts from industry and research organizations. The department organizes visits to various industries having mechatronics systems for the benefit of students. In a short span of time the course has attracted enormous attention from talented students. Under the semester abroad program 5 students have been sent to different universities like Massachusetts Institute of Technology-USA, University of California-Davis, USA and Kyushu Institute of Technology-Japan.
Industrial connections
As mentioned above, a few faculty members have considerable industrial experience. They continue to interact with the local industries on key issues. Further, some of the issues are converted into formal consultancy projects, and such projects are under progress.
Careers
Modern machines in industry do not belong exclusively to any one branch of engineering, as they are interdisciplinary in nature. The graduates passing out of the program will have better future and career growth in such interdisciplinary sectors. The students have bright job prospects in the automobile manufacturing, engineering and electronics industries.

    What is Mechatronics?

    Mechatronics definition Mechatronics is a synergistic combination of precision engineering, electronic control and mechanic systems. It is the science, that exists at the interface among the other five disciplines: mechanics, electronics, informatics, automation, robotics. It is one of the most dynamically developing fields of technology and science. The word 'mechatronics' appeared for the first time in Japan in 1969. mechatronics = mecha nics + elec tronics + computing

    Ascento - The Two-Wheeled Jumping Robot

    All-terrain capabilities are required to extend beyond flat surfaces the application range of wheeled robots. First think is four or six-legged robots which have been well known for years. Nowadays, thanks to more and more perfect gait algorithms, the two-legged (bipedal) robots appears more and more often. ETH Zürich students combine the advantages of wheeled robot and two-legged robot.

    Automatic Sorting of Skittles or M&Ms by Colour

    Do you sort M&Ms or Skittles by colour before eating them?  For example, eat all the yellow ones first, then the red ones, then the blue and so on. Brian Egenriether, an electrical engineer, decided to make a small machine that looked like an appliance, which could perform these tasks automatically. This mechatronics project took him about 5 weekends to make. The use of the machine is very simple: pour Skittles or M&Ms into it, push a button and have candies sorted. Let us look at the construction.

    Mechatronics System as the Future of Cooking at Home

    Do you get up in the morning and don't feel like making breakfast? One of the solutions is food delivery service, which leaves your takeout order outside of your front door. Other solution is a private chef who is responsible for shopping for food, menu planning, preparing and cooking meals for you. But if you love mechatronics systems, your solution is a mechatronic kitchen. It allows you to save time, free up your day from routine cooking, plan and adapt your menu according to different diets and lifestyles.

    Three Wheels Balancing Robot

    The three wheels balancing robot is similar to a ballbot from the point of view of the goal. In comparison to ballbot which balance itself on a single ball, three wheels balancing robot is designed to balance itself on a single rod. The common characteristics of this kind of robots is that there’s one sole contact point to the ground.

    Stretch - Boston Dynamics Unveils New Robot for Warehouse Automation

    Boston Dynamics is the global leader in mobile robotics. Their popular robots are SpotMini, Spot, Atlas and Handle. Now they has revealed 'Stretch', which is a new box-moving robot designed to support the growing demand for flexible automation solutions in the logistics industry. A Massachusetts company well known for its humanoid robots and dog-like androids is preparing to muscle its way into the warehouse automation industry with its latest mechatronic solution. Warehouse automation is a fast-growing market fueled by increased demand in e-commerce. The robot called Stretch is Boston Dynamics’ first commercial robot specifically designed for warehouse facilities and distribution centers. Robert Playter, CEO of Boston Dynamics said: Warehouses are struggling to meet rapidly increasing demand as the world relies more on just-in-time delivery of goods. Mobile robots enable the flexible movement of materials and improve working conditions for employees. Stretch

    DIY Low Cost 6-Axis Desktop Robot

    Learning how to build a robot is a long way. It is the way by mechanics, electronics and programming. Such a mechatronics project is associated with problems such as stiffness (mechanics), overvoltage (electronics) or bug (software). Of course, if something is wrong, we always say 'it's not a bug, it's a feature', but finally a robot has to start working properly.
