Minor in Robotics and Automation

Robotics and automation is the basic control process in the industry. The Fourth Industrial Revolution, or Industry 4.0, brings digital and physical technologies together to create responsive, interconnected operations. From the supply chain to the smart factory, enterprises are using AI, robotics, edge computing, and the cloud to make informed, timely decisions. In industrial control, a wide number of variables temperature, flow, level, pressure, and distance can be sensed simultaneously.

The technological boom in recent years has seen a transformation in the field of sensor technology. Digital and internet of things era, with upcoming industry 4.0 sensors and actuators play a vital role in any system. Moreover, automation and other fields are also composed of numerous sensors or actuators.
