Meet Sophia, she’s a citizen of Saudi Arabia, the first of her kind(humanoids) who have been granted a citizenship.Sophia-bot, the brainchild of Hanson Robotics, has many human like characteristics, she can express feelings, react to situations and even has a sense of humor. 

career in robotics, robotic engineering, robotic futire, robotics in india, colleges for robotics, wehre to study robotics, jobs in robotics, what do robotics engineers doDon’t be shocked, we’ve come a long way from seeing robots on screen like RoboCop, Transformers and even understanding Asimov’s laws of robotics.

Although we don’t come across humanoids that often, we are definitely heading into a world where robots will be  a part of our everyday lives. In fact, projects like Google’s self driving cars for hassle free rides to school and Dyson’s robotic cleaners to get you out of the monotony of doing your chores, are already well in the testing phases. With all the advancements in technology, we may now have to consider a reality where humans and robots co-exist.

The doors are open for you to enter the future through robotics. The question is, how will you step into it?

Scope and Opportunities in the Field of Robotics

A multidisciplinary field, Robotics bridges together Mechanical, Electrical and Computer Science engineering. It creates potential job opportunities in all sectors, be it in entertainment-to create robotic AI for XBoxes and Playstations, space research- working with organisations like ISRO and NASA, banking-to develop machines which help automate different banking activities etc.

The list of sectors where robotics is applicable is endless because we need them  EVERYWHERE.

How to get into the field of Robotics

If you have set your sights on a career in Robotics then you will need to focus on subjects like Mathematics and get a good grasp over Algebra and Geometry. Physics is also a core subject which requires attention. It will give you sound knowledge in energy, electrical circuits, mechanics, material science and other key topics for robotics.

At the post-graduate level (M.E / M.Tech), there are plenty of acclaimed institutes across the country which offer specialisations in robotics like:

  • Indian Institute of Technology(IIT’s)- Mumbai, Madras,Delhi,Kanpur,Kharagpur
  • Indian Institute of Science-Bangalore
  • The Centre for Robotics and Mechatronics at IIT-Kanpur
  • The University of Hyderabad
  • Jadavpur University(Kolkata)

For robotics engineers, there are many career avenues to explore. As new functionalities  for robots are being discovered , your field of work will expand too. Here’s a list of some of the top recruiters:

Government Research Organisations:

  • Indian Institute of Robotics
  • ISRO
  • DRDO

Private Organisations:

  • Intel
  • Capgemini
  • E&Y
  • JP Morgan Chase

Robotics is a field which keeps developing and and requires you to continually develop your knowledge in all other areas as well. You can even start learning this very moment, by signing up for the multitude of Robotics related contests conducted by your school or by organisations like STEM, NASA etc. You can even start right at home, buy robot kits like Lego Masterminds, which have embedded systems such as Raspberry Pi  and start learning with hands on activities. What are you waiting for? Let’s start building!

Pro tip: The first step towards this dream job is performing well in your 12th Board Exams and getting a good score for JEE. BYJU’S-The Learning App has programs designed to prepare you for your boards as well as competitive exams like IIT/JEE. With adaptive and engaging videos, sample test papers for each concept and personalised feedback, BYJU’S visual learning methods will give you the necessary boost to prepare for your exams.
