The “Make in India” movement has begun and a new breed of engineers is required to fulfil the need of Indian industries. Automation & Robotics will be one of the main drivers for this movement. KLE Tech (formerly BVBCET) started state’s first bachelor’s degree course in Automation & Robotics in the year 2009 with an intake of 30 students and the current intake has been increased to 60 students.
BE Automation & Robotics program prepares students for design, interface, installation and troubleshooting of industrial robots and automation systems. The main emphasis is on electronics, electrical controls, motors, programmable logic controllers, servo systems, robotics, hydraulics and pneumatics and mechanical systems, among others. Students integrate electronics and electrical controls with mechanical systems and programmable controllers and explore alternative trade-offs in the process of problem-solving.
Graduating engineers will be competent to work and excel in national and international companies working on innovative technical projects. Also, students are capable to pursue master program and research in leading universities. The department has state of the art laboratories which strive hard to meet the industry standards. In this direction, the department has signed MOU with Bosch Rexroth India Ltd. and Beckhoff Automation India Pvt. Ltd. to setup a Centre for Competency in industrial automation and PC based automation respectively.
