Best Robotics Courses To Take After School


According to Allied Market Research, the global robotics technology market size was valued at USD 62.75 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 189.36 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 13.5%. To meet the growing demand for robotics professionals, institutes around the world are offering specialized courses. But in India, most full-time courses in robotics are offered at postgraduate level (because 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 building 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, the design of robotic systems for new applications, etc.

Aerospace Engineering, Applied Mechanics, Civil Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Engineering Design, Mechanical Engineering, and Ocean Engineering offer the dual degree program.

The program is open to a B. Tech student or dual degree student of IIT Madras in any discipline except Biosciences. The student must have a GPA of 8.0 or higher until the 5th semester.

Colorado School of Mines

  • Computer Science and Robotics and Intelligent Systems: Students can major in Computer Science (CS) and choose an area of ​​interest from CS + Robotics and Intelligent Systems. Students will also take courses from the Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering departments. The course will help students understand “how to bring systems to life and give machines the ability to operate autonomously”.
  • Mechanical-Robotics Engineering, Automation, and Design: Students majoring in Mechanical Engineering can take elective robotics courses. Here, students will learn the basic mechanics, modeling, control, and design of robotic systems.
  • Bachelor of Science in Engineering-Robotics and Automation Focus Area: For the Bachelor of Science in Engineering, students can choose from different focus areas, including iRobotics and Automation.

Mechatronics and Robotics Engineering – The University of Sheffield

The three-year course will teach engineering skills in areas such as mechatronics and robotics such as mechanical design, electronics, computing, intelligent systems and control.

During the first year, students will be exposed to fundamental knowledge in areas such as mathematics, computer science, control, electronics and embedded systems. They will learn 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, and more. Students will apply these skills to design a system using 3D CAD tools. Students will be able to build this system in the University’s iForge Build Space.

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