The course finds its importance in the field of Robotics.  The field finds applications in the healthcare systems where these robots are being used for rehabilitation of stroke patients. In the current Covid 19 crisis these Robots are being studied to find their place in treating the patients so that human contact may be minimized there by restricting the spread of the virus.

These also find their importance in industries where repetitive task is done.

Who can attend:
Programme is open to faculty from all institutes, colleges and universities. Students/ Freshers/ Research Scholars/Industry personnel working in the concerned/allied discipline may also apply.
