B.E. Mechatronics Engineering


About the Department

The Department of Mechatronics Engineering was established in the year Academic Year 2011-2012. To be able to cope with the multiple future challenges, the traditional engineering working ways need to be replaced before entering the new technological era. Mechatronics is the next century’s technological innovation, with considerable growth potential and numerous job offers in the near future. Mechatronics systems will change the worldwide markets. Its development has dynamically reached a global size. At the same time, the miniaturization has opened up new possibilities, options and discoveries for the research industry.

The Mechatronics curriculum provides a broad insight into state-of-the-art methods for this interdisciplinary combination reinforced by research projects carried out in the industry connecting the disciplines of mechanics, electronics, computer science and control engineering is the core competence of modern engineering.

The department, apart from the undergraduate program, is engaged in many other activities such as industrial consultancy, industrial training, research, organizing seminars and conferences. Well-trained faculty members with experience in imparting knowledge to the students are grouped in this department. The members of faculty have vast industrial experience and they are engaged in consultancy. The key issue is that the faculty members have continuous interaction with the industries. The Department is well equipped with good infrastructural and laboratory facilities.

The mission of the Department of Mechatronics engineering is to produce Mechatronics Engineering graduates who will possess the acumen, competence, and skills needed to enter, succeed, and lead in professional practice or post-graduate studies. The goal is to provide learning and nurturing environment that stimulates faculty and students to collaborate in solving practical problems, motivates lifelong learning, and helps reach their highest potential.

Infrastructure

Robotics Laboratory

Modern society depends on Mechatronics based systems for conveniences in everyday life. To cater this, the Robotics laboratory is provided with state of the art facilities and occupies an area of about 98.1 sq.m. The lab is equipped with Stepper Motor Robotic Trainer kit with 5 Axis Gripper and programming software for imparting basic knowledge of different types of robot and its configurations for undergraduate students. The student have hands on experience with robot’s Links, Joints, Components, Drive System, End effectors, Mechanics, Dynamics and Programs.

Microprocessor Laboratory

In this advanced world, microprocessors plays a crucial role in many applications to perform work in a précised manner .In mechatronics systems microprocessors are used to automate and control parameters in a well defined manner. The Microprocessor lab is intended to deliver practical knowledge about microprocessors and their applications. The lab consists of 8085 microprocessor hardware kit interfacing devices such as Analog and Digital Converter, Digital to Analog Converter, stepper motor controller, traffic light controller, timer and counter, interrupt controller, temperature controller and Keyboard/display interface devices for the students to implement and explore the practical knowledge.

Applied Hydraulics and Pneumatics Laboratory

In Automation Domain actuation of actuators plays a vital role, to achieve this there are three methods for transmitting power from one point to another. Mechanical transmission is through shafts, gears, chains, belts, etc. Electrical transmission is through wires, transformers, etc. Fluid power is through liquids or gas in a confined space.

In this Laboratory, we discuss and practice structure of hydraulic systems and pneumatic systems. We also discuss the advantages and disadvantages and compare hydraulic, pneumatic, electrical and mechanical systems. Fluid power is the technology that deals with the generation, control and transmission of forces and movement of mechanical element or system with the use of pressurized fluids in a confined system. Both liquids and gases are considered fluids. We also introduce MATLAB/ LabVIEW software to simulate hydraulic, pneumatic and electrical circuit and to enhance hands on experience to design and test the pneumatic circuit to perform basic operations.

PLC Laboratory

This laboratory plays a key role in providing all the fundamentals of Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC) for the students. This laboratory is established with the emphasis on increasing basic ideas and development activities of automation using PLC. This lab composed of PLC kits, interfacing devices such as traffic light controller, speed control of D.C motor, Testing of relays, sequential operations of pneumatic cylinders and Linear actuation of hydraulic cylinder with counter and speed control.

Microcontroller Laboratory

This laboratory emphasis on modern embedded systems. Microcontroller is used in many automation domains. Microcontroller lab provides opportunity for the students to operate and apply the equipments and instruments for the development of the software and hardware 8051 microcontroller. The lab has 8051 hardware kits for the students to implement and study various experiments and to get acquainted with the embedded software development process. This laboratory has 15 microcontroller kits with variety of interfaces and control kits like AC & DC motor speed measurement, control interfacing board, SCR/TRIAC/Power MOSFET interface units, stepper motor interface, LED/LCD interface unit devices.

RIDE software is also provided for embedding the assembly language programs and high level programming languages like C. under the support of powerful equipment. students can do various software and hardware experiments like input and output of interfaces, serial and parallel communication technique ,and programming of assembly language, etc.,

Sensors and Signal Processing Laboratory

The purpose of this lab is to familiarize the students about different types of sensors used in automation and manufacturing industries. Here, they can learn to measure displacement, temperature, torque etc. Also they can understand the concept of Analog to Digital Convertor, Digital to Analog Convertor, Data acquisition process used in industries. Sensors and signal processing laboratory is fully furnished with sufficient equipments in an area of about 98.1 sq.m.
