Project Culture

The department creates opportunities for experiential learning via course projects, mini projects (V Semester), minor projects (VI Semester) and Capstone projects (VII-VIII Semesters). Overall, each student carries out at least 7 projects by his/her graduation.

Capstone Projects (or Major Projects)

Capstone projects are carried out during VIII semester (formerly in VII and VIII semester). Here, group of students will address a problem with end-to-end scope, including market survey, defining specification and limitations, designing and evaluating solutions to select best possible solution, identifying different technologies, implementation, testing, and report writing. So, each student will invest more than 100+ hours to perform previously mentioned activities.

The students will be guided by department faculty members with necessary financial support to purchase different electronic components and manufacture mechanical structure. The project will be evaluated continually.

Minor Projects

Minor projects are carried out during VI semester with the aim to evaluate the knowledge learnt till the end of V semester. Here, group of students will focus on understanding and trying to solve a problem in a smaller setup. The scope includes project management, gathering requirements, functional analysis, defining specifications, developing and evaluating alternate solutions, developing validation and verification plans for each phase of the projects, designing circuits, building virtual prototype, testing and writing report.

The students will be guided by department faculty members and the project will be evaluated continually.

Mini Projects

Mini projects are carried out during V semester. The aim of the project is to design and implement a control system both in terms of hardware and software using engineering design process.

Course Projects

Course projects are organized as part of a course with an aim to provide students with an opportunity to understand the course in a better way. The problem statements are related to corresponding course. The faculty members continually evaluate the project progress.

 

Hackathons

Hackathons are organized internally within department to introduce students to numerous problem that they will face in reality. The hackathons are well structured and the problems are defined earlier, which gives students ample time to prepare. The students assemble on given dates and address the problems with no or little access to internet resources.
