Project & Training

The students undertake project as a compulsory part of curriculum in VIII Semester. Under this, the area of expertise of faculty members is communicated to the students. The students then chose their relevant areas and get attached to the faculty members for the whole semester. They discuss their work on regular basis with their mentors. During this process they give two presentations which include the working prototypes to get their work reviewed. Feedback is given to them which is an iterative process. At the end of the semester, a final showcase of the project is done in front of an external examiner and they are grilled for the work undertaken.

Through the projects that the students undertake, they get a fair chance to demonstrate their skills and knowledge of the engineering principles they have learned during the program. They are allowed to work in a team according to the need of the problem chosen. During the lifetime of the project, they also learn to work and adhere to the principles of team building, showcasing their leadership skills as well as they learn to manage their projects in the multi-disciplinary environment. They are able to comprehend and write effective reports and design documentation for which they keep getting the feedback from their mentors chapter-wise. They also learn to give and receive clear instructions.

Also, while developing the project which is the hands-on practical work that they carry, they are constantly guided to stick to the work ethics and adhere to the professional commitments. Some of innovations recognized by outside agency are:
