About Course

Introduction to Robotics is a 13 session instructor driven program organised by Ionic3DP


Who is this for? For anyone planning to pursue a career or higher education in the field of

Robotics. This would also be an excellent program for students who are planning their final year

project or are generally interested in this field.

What is the course like The instructor driven course covers demonstrations, hands-on

exercises and case-studies all the way from the famous Asimo robots to the Stiquito the DIY 6

legged running robot. The course is fast paced covering Kinematics, Manipulators, Programming,

CAD and Robot Operating System (ROS). Towards the end of the course, there is a special tear

down session where students experience first-hand functioning of 3D printers, laser cutters etc…

Prerequisites? There are None

Introduction to Robotics course is a mandatory pre-condition course for the Advanced Robotics

Program which covers hands-on lab activities such as building robotic manipulators, 3D printers

and biped robots in your respective colleges.
