Hi friends! By next year september 2010 , my Masters in Intelligent Systems and Robotics course will be completed in UK.I want to do job in our INDIA.Do i have such oppurtunites here.please do reply.

Stay in UK :) , Job wise in robotics India is Bad. But if you wanna do some entrepreneurial it might be good as Robotics is still emerging.

If you want to do a job look west.

which university are you going to enroll in ?

@kavi: Next October? As in October'09?

The reason I asked is that I am currently in the process of moving to the UK, and my new job involves dealing in commercial and military contracts for various embedded systems (including several robotics related). The UK has a huge demand for professionals in this area.

India, on the other hand is very behind in this regard, and my finding is that the problem lies in our thinking. I'll give two example of that.

1) One post behind this one, you asked if there are many jobs in India in the field of robotics, and when you found out the the demand is fairly limited, you asked if you should drop the idea and pursue some other course. What if you did complete your course? Worked wherever there is a demand for people of your qualifications (Singapore, US, UK, Japan, Middle East, etc.) for a few years, and after you gained some experience and practical knowledge decided to do something on your own; here in India. Wouldn't that be a step in changing the current predicament of our country?

2) A few days ago, I was involved in a short debate here in these forums; being experienced in the matter, I merely stated that using SMT is as easy as using throughole, even for first time hobbyist. Its only a matter of getting used to it with the first 5-10 boards (Can you remember the first 5 throughole boards you ever soldered? If they were anything like mine, they would have been utterly trash). The responses that I got (even from more experienced members of the community), made me realize that the hobbyists are afraid of change. If anyone here feels that hobbyists ten years later are still going to be using throughole components, they are in for a rude awakening. Stating reasons like availability and replacibility also doesn't hold much good, a good desoldering pump costs no more then Rs. 150, and there is absolutely no component which is not available in India today, even if they need to be ordered. (I recently purchased Atmel XMega parts off-the-counter in Mumbai!). My point here being, that hobbyists (who should be the rallying point of this movement) in our country, are not willing to inculcate the change either.

I'm kinda loaded with work so should let this comment pass, but cannot.

I have absolutely no patience with people who India-bash on basis of trivialities. It is so pathetic that the SMT-discussion was one of those things that led you to the conclusion that 'Indian thinking' is 'behind'. Not that it is too relevant here, but may I request you to go to Agra, Ludhiana, Rajkot, Bhopal, Warangal, Nagpur (to name a few tier-B cities) and try to source a few SMD resistors.

Go ahead, emigrate or whatever, but kindly do not berate India like some stuck-up whiz kid. I've seen quite a few, especially when they got jobs overseas. But not very recently. I thought this had stopped in the 90s, when going abroad was something big.

@MohitM: Alright, I apologize for hurting your sentiments, It was not my intention to do so :).

Why don't you express your thoughts on why technology in India progresses at less then half the rate as some of the other third world countries (taiwan, korea, srilanka...)?

go to Agra, Ludhiana, Rajkot, Bhopal, Warangal, Nagpur (to name a few tier-B cities) and try to source a few SMD resistors
Any why do you think that is? :lol:

And my apologies for losing my head and being too harsh in my last mail.

Regarding the discussion, I'll get back later as I'm a bit busy with work today.

Please have a look at what docel posted a while back


08-27-2009, 03:48 PM
yup !! It is possible to work on cutting and bleeding edge robotics technologies while being in India. :)
Open your eyes and look around :roll:

hi Debu! Thanks for your reply.Two of my friends have changed their course and i have lot of interest in this field so any way i am not ready to change my course even after their compulsion .But once i thought to take an advice from this website and got a good advise from you.So First i will complete my course and will gain an enough experience and do something new for my INDIA.

You are going to Essex,UK for working ? :o
And when are you supposed to go?

Any way once again thanks for your reply bye takecare

Hi guys, i think the problem lies with the very basics itself.. education.

I have seen the same pile of books, on industrial robotics and degrees of freedom for all 4 years of my graduation, and why?

most people are not interested, they look at amazing interest at a robot in movie or a science show or anyplace, and most forget about it after 10 min, people don't tend to probe into the details. How many of you guys search the net to see the working of a scifi device?

When people start showing more interest, the business men will never loose the chance to cash by getting the market needs.

I faced this problem myself, i live in one of the largest cities in Andhra Pradesh, and there is only one place for electronics, and only one hobby shop, and most of the sensors are not available over there.
If a budding aspirant comes with lot of interest and finds that he cant get the stuff here and he has to import them paying lot for transportation, what would be his first thought? to let it go or keep it for later.

The more interested -> demand -> availability and growth. It might be true that we are a bit behind, but we can definitely grow to great heights.
Let me know your views.

hi !! dis is godson from india...m planing to do my Ms(2010) intelligent systems and robotics in Essex university and i realy have to get a job der after the course has been completed . And if dat doesn happens my parents are going to shot me..so please everyone give me good suggestion ..should i change the university to get job or the course itslf??...KAVI am expectin a gd adwise from u cas u mit hav pas out in dat couse by now..

07-01-2010, 08:10 PM
Do not go to UK, go to US for higher studies. I had calls from 7-8 top Univ of UK. I dropped the idea later

07-02-2010, 09:31 AM
yeah i kno d economy of uk is worse and its very tough to get job..can i kno y u dropd ur plan??

07-02-2010, 04:32 PM
Two reasons, Post MS job prospects did not look that great and funding is an issue, moreover UK will always be considered second grade when compared to US. I was planning to pursue my MS/Phd at US, but it was recession time back in 2008, and i had got through DRDO test, thus i finally joined here. I still wish to pursue Masters and a Phd, but they can wait for a little while.
