Automation and Robotics

Robotics is the branch of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, electronic engineering and computer science that deals with the design, construction, operation, and application of robots, as well as computer systems for their control, sensory feedback, and information processing.
These technologies deal with automated machines that can take the place of humans in dangerous environments or manufacturing processes, or resemble humans in appearance, behavior, and/or cognition. Many of today's robots are inspired by nature contributing to the field of bio-inspired robotics.
Automation or automatic control, is the use of various control systems for operating equipment such as machinery, processes in factories, boilers and heat treating ovens, switching on telephone networks, steering and stabilization of ships, aircraft and other applications with minimal or reduced human intervention. Some processes have been completely automated.
The biggest benefit of automation is that it saves labor, however, it is also used to save energy and materials and to improve quality, accuracy and precision.
The term automation, inspired by the earlier word automatic (coming from automaton), was not widely used before 1947, when General Motors established the automation department. It was during this time that industry was rapidly adopting feedback controllers, which were introduced in the 1930s.


Eligibility :
Robotics engineering Eligibility:-
UG: 4 years
For admission in a bachelor’s degree, the candidate must have passed the higher secondary school certificate (10+2) examination with science subject such as biology, maths and chemistry. For IITs, It is mandatory to qualify in the Joint Entrance Examinations (J.E.E). 
PG: 2 years
The eligibility criteria for pursuing a master’s degree are holding a bachelor's degree in (B.E/B.Tech) or any other equivalent branches of engineering. 
Automation Eligibility:-
To become a professional in automation one has to have a technical degree (preferably an engineering degree) or at least a diploma in automation. For diploma a student can become eligible after class 10th. For any technical degree like engineering the student has to attain a 10+2 degree certificate with major in subjects like Mathematics and Physics. Aspirants who want to study further can also go for higher education. For this they need to attain a post-graduation certificate. This can either be in a technical domain or a master of science. Highly passionate professionals can also pursue doctorate degrees like PhD in the field of automation.
