IETE Certified Robotics Workshop for College Students

IETE Certified Robotics + IoT Workshop for College Students

The Internet of Things (IoT) is already in implementation in its very base stages with the abundance of smart devices around us and robotics is not far behind in terms of becoming a very part of our day to day lives. Thus college students especially those in the fields of engineering and science could potentially stand to gain a lot by having some fundamental knowledge in the respective areas and a workshop of this caliber is the perfect way to get started. Over the duration of the course students will learn about various types of components used in the building of a basic robot like sensors, communication modules, microcontrollers etc. Combine that with basic coding lessons and hands-on work building fun and aesthetically appealing fully functional robots it’s an opportunity worth making the most of.

Why we are different?

  1. IETE approved certification.
  2. High quality take away training kits at low cost.
  3. Experienced faculty.
  4. More focus on hands-on training and practical skill development.
  5. In-house developed training kit
  6. Kit is open-source and capable of interfacing with other sensors

College Students pursuing any discipline (Engineering/Science) are eligible for the course irrespective of their semester.
