Overview

This advanced circuits and robotics course will help students learn and develop amazing projects, from complete beginner to pro. In the process, students get to build their social, professional and technical skills which will assist them in their upcoming futures in the robotics world.

Topics Covered/Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this course, the successful student will have reliably demonstrated their abilities in the following areas:

Circuits:

  • Being able to build and decode circuits for any process automation
  • Analyze how things around you work
  • Build up the enthusiasm to pull things apart to learn how it works

For example, students will be able to make a circuit to turn on the lights and fans in a house as soon as a person enters.

Programming:

  • Learn the basics of programming language
  • Develop logic to solve specific problems
  • Increase mathematical and analytical skills

For example, students will able to write a program to develop games and robots.

Electronics:

  • Understand the physics behind existing gadgets
  • Learn to integrate them into projects
  • Accelerated growth and confidence in future studies and projects

For example, students will learn how technologies like sensors (IR, Ultrasonic, Temperature) and motors (DC, Stepper, Servo) work and will be able to integrate them into their projects.

Prototyping:

  • Learn to put things together to provide solutions to existing problems
  • Understand the process of product development life cycle
  • Increases student’s social skills through group projects, entrepreneur skills through innovative projects and demos. Students will be able to develop projects like Home Automation and Self Driving Car

Sai Nalluri

Sai Nalluri is a technology enthusiast with diverse experience in mechanics, electrics, biomedicine and computer science. He attended Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, graduating with a bachelor’s degree in Mechatronics Engineering. He also has many years of dynamic industry exposure. Sai has travelled across the globe to expand his horizons in artificial intelligence and control systems. He obtained his master’s degree from the University of Western Ontario in Automation and Systems Engineering and later joined the robotics industry by launching Canada’s first Automated Grocery Delivery service, Voila. Sai believes that education should be more practical and experimental than theoretical. He zealously promotes practical, engaging and prototype-oriented learning. He has created various robotics courses, designed to ignite a passion for learning and provide vital industry knowledge. With his dynamic experience in STEM education, he hopes to provide future generations with the necessary tools to succeed in a technology-driven society. Sai recognizes that product development involves strenuous effort from multiple fields of engineering. For example, body design relies on mechanical expertise, circuit boards come from electrical insight and programmed intelligence relies on computer science expertise. A base in multiple fields can therefore make you more efficient and productive in your career. Sai argues that robotics is the only field that can provide such diverse knowledge. He considers robotics to be a great career choice for anyone. His advice? Stay hungry for knowledge because necessity is the mother of invention.
