The department provides liberal facilities for research to the final year undergraduate students, postgraduate students and all the faculty members, Some areas of research presently undertaken by the department are:
AI & Robotics
The current research foci of this area Include: Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Biological Computation, Evolutionary, Cellular and Neural Computation, Complex Adaptive Systems, Sensory systems and behavior evolution, Language evolution, Mimetic evolution
Research in this area involves conventional as well as modem approaches for plant automation; starting from use of PLC, Open architecture solutions, embedded solutions, SCADA, DCS and soft PLCs,
Interactive household devices, agritronics, rapid prototyping, vehicle mechatronics, intelligent spaces, assistive technologies for disabled, sports technologies, vision based systems are some of the major research topics under Investigation.
Refresher COUrses In various fields of mechatronics engineering are offered to the Industry and practicing professionals, Lectures and seminars on different technical aspects are arranged by local and foreign experts, The department also renders advisory services to a large number of organizations in the fields of Automation, Hydraulics and Pneumatics, and Embedded Systems.
Student Advisory Services
Department has deputed faculty members as session advisors so that students of that particular session may seek guidance regarding different aspects of student life in the university. Quires regarding curricular and co-curricular activities can be discussed with respective session advisors.
The department has launched a Mechatronics Club to promote design and development activities in the area. In normal routine students of higher classes use advanced equipment but this club provides opportunity for juniors to mingle with seniors and learn skills right from the start, Club incharge delivers lectures, designate projects and guide in programming, computer interfacing, microcontrollers etc.
