IIT-Delhi collaborates with DBSE to design Robotics and Automation curriculum

IIT Delhi will design a curriculum to train students in the various aspects of robotics and automation that will enable them to pursue diverse higher education and career paths in this field. In this regard, the Delhi School Education Board (DBSE) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with I-Hub Foundation for Cobotics (IHFC), IIT Delhi’s Technology Innovation Center to design a robotics and automation curriculum for Specialized Schools of Excellence (SoSE) under the Government of Delhi.

“It is important that schools now begin to offer courses and curricula beyond just the normal subjects. The future will appreciate individuals who come with proficient skills in areas of new generation technologies such as robotics, automation, machine learning and artificial intelligence, which will be a standard for employment in every industry in the near future, Himanshu Gupta, Director of Education, told DBSE.

SoSE has commissioned IHFC to design the curriculum, which will be more advanced and relevant to the industry in terms of robotics and automation that includes mechanics, electronics, IoT robotics programming, etc. The whole idea is to organize teaching materials and content to facilitate learning, claims the International Institute of Technology in Delhi.

IHFC will collaborate with industry partners and players to create an industry-relevant curriculum that will make SoSE students employable in ambitious career roles after four years of specialized study in robotics and automation. It will also support by lending the expertise of industry partners, academic partners, and IHFC alumni to design experiential learning opportunities for students such as internships, apprenticeships, guest lectures, master classes, visits and projects, which will contribute to hands-on and in-depth learning. for the students.

“It is important that students from a young age have a set of learning skills, which will make them more skilled to face the technologically advanced industry and the world of tomorrow. We want everyone to be prepared to face the technologically advanced world that we will live in, in the near future,” said Dr. SK Saha, Professor at IIT Delhi and Project Manager, IHFC.

IHFC will also be actively involved in identifying, recruiting and building teachers as well as supporting and guiding them through this transition.
