SME: SK Gupta Named One of the 20 Most Influential Professors in Smart Manufacturing

Gupta’s group develops smart robotic assistants to increase human productivity in manufacturing applications. These smart assistants are capable of programming themselves from task descriptions, learning from the observed performance, safely operating in the presence of uncertainty, appropriately calling for help during the execution of challenging tasks, and interacting with humans in a user-friendly manner.

What is Aerospace & Mechanical Engineering?

Aerospace and mechanical engineers design and build unique, complex mechanical-optical-electronic (mechoptronic) systems, ranging in scale from the International Space Station to microscale electric generators and pumping systems.

A broad range of engineering science research is critical to developing novel, complex mechoptronic systems. As a consequence, aerospace and mechanical engineers conduct extensive basic and applied research within and crossing their usual disciplinary boundaries, they also synthesize research from many other disciplines.
