HOD's Desk

Welcome to the Department of Robotics and Automation Engineering, PSG College of Technology, Coimbatore.

Founded in 2011, our department is one of the newest departments in our college.

For the young generation of today what started as a mere hobby has become a passion - 'Robotics'! We at PSG College of Technology understand this passion and are all set to streamline their hopes and dreams.

Robotics is a new branch of Engineering that involves design, development and operation of robots – a branch that is an overlap of several engineering disciplines like electrical, mechanics, electronics, computer science and artificial intelligence. The faculty members of this department come from diverse backgrounds, but are united by our common passion for Robotics that we share with the young minds that join us and we work together to ignite their dreams.

I certainly believe that all our efforts will produce fruitful results. Our future Engineers will lead the science and technology of Robotics to serve the nation in a better way.

I look forward to leading you to lead us to the future.

Best Wishes!

Dr.Vinod B. , Associate Professor & Head
