Whether it is Hollywood movies like Wall-e, Robocop, Terminator, i-Robot, Transformers ... or our own Rajinikanth’s  movie Endhiran – The Robot; film makers have always been fascinated with making movies related to robots and artificial intelligence. Farzad Minoo Damania, Career Counsellor at Career Nurturer ( gives us an insight into career in robotics.

The growing role of robots in everything ranging from cleaning carpets, conducting medical surgeries, working in dangerous toxic conditions, to space exploration; suggests that there is a need for young and talented robotics engineers. Robotics is used in various fields such as manufacturing, transportation, distribution, military, security, education, medicine, space travel, and home activities.

Robotics is an interdisciplinary field. To make a robot, you need inputs from various domains of electronics, mechanics, computer software, control systems, and embedded systems. Other than these traditional engineering subjects, other subjects like biology, psychology and cognitive sciences, mathematics and chemistry also have wide role in robotics studies.

What is my job role?
As a robotics engineer, you will be designing robots, developing new applications for robots, performing maintenance and repair work, and conducting research on future developments and better utilization of existing robotic systems. You could be working as an automation system engineer by applying the principles of robotics in manufacturing and assembly line.

Is this me?
Like any other engineer, robotics engineer should also possess strong analytical and logical reasoning skills. You should have an aptitude for science and technology with understanding of concepts of electronics, mechanics and programming. As you will be working with devices, circuits and machines, you should have a practical hands-on approach to work. You should be methodical, focussed and self-motivated. This is a challenging job profile so persistence, determination, creativity and out of box thinking are essential.

What to study?
Robotics and Artificial Intelligence are specializations offered at post-graduation level. You need to begin with a Bachelor’s Degree in Engineering or Technology (B.E. or B.Tech.) after your 12th Science (PCM). You may consider doing your B.E./B.Tech. in Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science Engineering, Electronics Engineering or Mechatronics Engineering to develop strong fundamentals. After your graduation, you may pursue M.E./M.Tech. in Robotics and Artificial Intelligence either in India or abroad.

Where to study?
Some universities offering M.E./M.Tech. with specialization in robotics are – Indian Institute of Technology – Kanpur, National Institute of Technology – Hyderabad, MS University – Baroda, Osmania University – Hyderabad, BITS – Pilani, Sri SathyaSai Institute of Higher Learning – AP, University of Petroleum & Energy Studies – Dehradun, Jadavpur University – Kolkata, Thapar University – Patiala.

What are my job avenues?
It is said that there is not much scope for robotics engineers in India; but scenario is changing. Here is a list of few companies in India that recruit robotics and AI engineers: Precision Automation Robotics India Limited (PARI), Tata Advance Systems, Kuka-Robotics, Hi-Tech Robotic Systemz Limited (HRSL), DiFACTO Robotics and Automation, GridBots Technologies, Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics (CAIR), Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) and Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO).

How much will I earn?
As there is a demand-supply mismatch in this field, you may get a good salary package after you complete your post-graduation course. Starting salaries can range between 3 lakh to 7 lakh per annum. With few years of experience, you can expect remuneration of above 10 lakh per annum.
