About the Course

Modern manufacturing and logistics systems are supported by increasingly ubiquitous and powerful computing networks. Within these networks, oceans of data are continuously being generated by sensors, machines, systems, smart devices, and people. Together with rising computational capabilities, this Big Data is being analysed faster, more broadly, and more deeply than ever before.

These advances have redefined the value of Artificial Intelligence (AI) technologies and opened a new age known as Industry 4.0 or the Smart Factory. The aim is to combine commercially available robots and multi-modal sensing with AI to create smart robotic assistants that are well-suited for complex operations in high-mix manufacturing and service applications.

The use of a team of smart robotic assistants can significantly improve human productivity and eliminate the need for human involvement in manufacturing tasks that pose risks to human safety. Problems such as the lack of resources are solved by using artificial intelligence enabled robotics throughout the supply chain, which simultaneously increases quality and the profitability of the processes.

National Institute of Industrial Engineering (NITIE), established in 1963 by the Government of India with the assistance of United Nations Development Project (UNDP) through the International Labour Organization (ILO), is one of the leading institutes for Management education

NITIE, a pioneer in Industrial Management has been positioned 12th amongst management schools in India by National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) in 2021.

NITIE, widely known as the leading Institute in Supply Chain and Operations, holds a purpose in advancing the transformative education and industry inspired research in different domains thus dedicating itself to help Indian businesses to make their presence felt globally

PM Gati Shakti Initiatives

The PM Gati Shakti - National Master Plan was announced last year with an aim to celebrate 75 years of a progressive India and the glorious history of its people, culture, and achievements. The objective is to break departmental silos and will lay the foundation for holistic infrastructure development to address the multi-modal and last-mile connectivity issues pertaining to supply chain and demand management.

The Global Online Certification Course on Artificial Intelligence for Robotic: Applications in Manufacturing and Logistics offered by NITIE, Mumbai in association with Prof Satyandra K Gupta is exclusively curated to provide a roadmap for the industry practitioners
