The Society of Robotics and Automation or the SRA is a Society for students under the Mechanical Engineering Department. As the name suggests, we deal with Robotics, Machine Vision, Automation and all their allied fields. So if you ever wanted to build a robot, or learn machine building, or have the next big idea, join us!
SRA is a gateway for under graduates to the field of Robotics. Through promotion of hobby robotics, we aim to create awareness and interest in Industrial Robotics amongst VJTI students as well other leading Mumbai colleges. The Society will encourage students to consider Robotic Engineering as a serious career choice and will give them relevant exposure for the same in the course of their degree.
Since the society got formed officially in September 2008, we have already achieved quite a lot, including mentoring beginners, take up interesting projects and conducting workshops . To cohere our efforts in the same, and reduce the steep learning curve associated with beginners, we hope to carry out the following
