e-Yantra Robotics Competition: Annual Robotics competition for Engineering, Diploma and Science undergraduates. e-Yantra Summer Internship Program: We give an internship opportunity at e-Yantra Lab, IIT Bombay to the winners of e-Yantra Robotics Competition.
e-Yantra Lab Setup Initiative: Enable colleges to set up robotics labs and provide trainning to teachers. e-Yantra Ideas Competition: Provides a platform for eLSI college studens to implement and showcase their innovative ideas. e-Yantra Symposium: Brings together all eLSI colleges for discussions and seminars on how to turn these labs into Innovation Hubs.
Two-day Workshop on Introduction to Robotics: An introductory workshop on robotics and embedded systems involving hands-on training exclusively for teachers. Task Based Training: A series of interesting tasks based on Firebird V platform blend theory and practical experimentation. Task Based Training Challenge: Here, teachers trained by the TBT test their skills by implementing a project based on the abstraction of a real life scenario.

e-Yantra Robotics Competition (eYRC) is a unique annual competition for undergraduate students in science and
colleges. Selected teams are given a robotic kit complete with accessories and video tutorials to help them learn basic concepts in embedded systems and microcontroller programming. Abstracts of real world problems assigned as "themes" are then implemented by the teams using the robotic kits. The winners of this competition will be eligible for summer internship at IITB through e-Yantra Summer Internship Program .
e-Yantra Lab Setup Initiative (eLSI) is a college level program under which colleges are encouraged to setup robotics labs. It is designed as a scalable and sustainable approach that addresses infrastructure creation and teacher training – to create an eco-system at the colleges to impart effective engineering education. eLSI provides: (i) guidance and support for establishing robotics labs - three robotic kits are given to each participating college and
(ii) a two-phased training for teachers: Two-day Workshop and Task Based Training.
e-Yantra Symposium(eYS) is an annual event at IIT-Bombay -- to bring together colleges which have set up robotics labs through the e-Yantra Lab Setup Initiative (eLSI).
The goal is to share projects and brainstorm new ideas for improving pedagogy and the quality of BE projects. This event ensures sustainable use of Robotics labs set up through the e-Yantra Lab Setup Initiative (eLSI). No registration fee is charged from teachers and students from colleges who attend the symposium.
This event acts as a platform for :
(i) Showcasing selected projects from the e-Yantra labs through the
e-Yantra Ideas Competition (eYIC).
e-Yantra Resource Development Center (eYRDC) is a portal designed exclusively for eLSI colleges through which we share resources for teachers to help them use their e-Yantra labs in an effective manner.
Transforming e-Yantra labs at colleges to:
(i) Innovation hubs for incubating exciting B.E. projects
(ii) Labs for ALL to conduct hands-on experiments

k-Yantra project develops a know-how for setting up an automated agriculture project – test bed for addressing real world problem and hands-on learning for students on application of what they learnt in theory through a fun and productive exercise
This entails first generating the soil through a recycling waste and resource recovery of garden and kitchen waste which is in sync with the municipal solid waste management agenda of both central and state government.
Plan and execute the creation of beds for growing plants
Making the little gadgets, tools, the networking for maintaining and monitoring the growth of plants.
