In technical fest “CROSSROAD” mechanical engineering students participate in a big way and exhibit their innovative project models. Every year six to seven groups of mechanical engineering get cash prizes.
The best innovative ideas are presented to DST and MSME government agencies under ministry of science and technology and approved ideas are financed by government for development of project. Some of such projects are:
- Insecticide spray equipment operated by movement of person
- Auto fertilizer spreading/seeding equipment
- Bio disposable system for railway
Solar Energy Research
Research activities at the department are progressing in the area of alternative sources of energy and materials technology. About 15 research papers have been published in various reputed International journals and conferences. A proposal to setup a “Solar Energy Research Centre” in the college is in advance stage.
This center is dedicated to identifying methods for converting solar energy to renewable fuel sources. A 132 KV roof top solar system has already been installed in two different blocks of the Institute. An indoor simulation and testing lab has been developed to test different types of PV modules.
Following experimental facilities are available for solar energy research in the institute.
