Project Description

Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field that combines the principles of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer science. The versatility of the skills and knowledge acquired through a Mechatronics programme makes it an attractive option for students who are looking to gain a broad and diverse set of skills that can be applied in several ways in their future careers.

Project Details

Principal Investigator: Prof. Santosh Noronha

Cause Area/Theme: Skill Development and Livelihoods

Budget: INR 25 Lakhs

Technology Readiness Level: 1

Project Duration: 2 Years

UN SDG No: 4.4


Expected Impact

This project will impact the lives of students who have dropped out of school, ITI students, undergrad students, and girl students. While, traditionally, the technology industry has been male-dominated, pursuing a course in Mechatronics can help increase the number of women in STEM. Early-age learning and vocational training also give curious students the skills to tackle problems confidently, facilitate positivity towards the learning process, inspire greater self-confidence in students, and contribute to the growth of individuals who are curious, confident, and willing to take the initiative when faced with challenges.
