We are striving to build an ecosystem for emerging technologies by providing support to stakeholders which include student community, educational institutions and the industry.

Kaizen Robotics Program

With the guidance of faculty members at IIT Madras we have developed a 2 year long curriculum which aims at teaching students emerging technologies.


Our curriculum covers areas ranging from basic robotics to advanced areas such as computer vision, controls theory, machine learning etc.

Need to Adapt

Robotics and embedded systems is estimated to grow to a $ 14.4 billion industry in India. Most organizations are not equipped for leveraging this growth for development of students. We are empowering students and organizations for this paradigm shift.
