Department of Mechanical- Mechatronics Engineering

Research Centers

LNMIIT created the Centre for Robotics and Industrial Automation (CRIA) as part of its select focused sustainable innovation- enablement and technology based opportunity creation initiatives having potential to enable early as well as long- term benefits to the campus, society and the nation. The CRIA would be encouraged to become an innovation, research and development hub around which not only LNMIIT but also many other institutions in the vicinity might get enabled over the years.

Centre For Robotics and Industrial Automation

The LNMIIT Centre for Sustainability and Innovation

The main aim of the centre is to develop technologies to make energy efficient systems and processes which would be environmentally friendly and sustainable. To advance student knowledge in climate change, sustainability, energy efficiency, and environmental conservation and develop innovative solutions, and promote sustainable practices for a greener and more sustainable future. Offering academic programs, courses, and workshops related to energy and environmental studies.

The center adopts a multidisciplinary approach to focus on sustainability, with particular attention to clean energy, clean water, clean air, culture, education, and economics.
