- Interdisciplinary Skills
- Hands-on Experience
Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field that combines the principles of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer science. The versatility of the skills and knowledge acquired through a Mechatronics programme makes it an attractive option for students who are looking to gain a broad and diverse set of skills that can be applied in several ways in their future careers.
Principal Investigator: Prof. Santosh Noronha
Cause Area/Theme: Skill Development and Livelihoods
Budget: INR 25 Lakhs
Technology Readiness Level: 1
Project Duration: 2 Years
UN SDG No: 4.4
This project will impact the lives of students who have dropped out of school, ITI students, undergrad students, and girl students. While, traditionally, the technology industry has been male-dominated, pursuing a course in Mechatronics can help increase the number of women in STEM. Early-age learning and vocational training also give curious students the skills to tackle problems confidently, facilitate positivity towards the learning process, inspire greater self-confidence in students, and contribute to the growth of individuals who are curious, confident, and willing to take the initiative when faced with challenges.
