E-learning represents technology enabled learning and using electronic media in the learning process. In the present educational scenario, both the learner and the facilitator are required to be aware of the new learning management systems. The E-learning club aims at the use of E-learning methods in the field of engineering education. The club started its activities in Sep 2007. The club has organized several programs and has been working on various E-learning techniques which can be applied to engineering education.
System Modelling Club
The increasing complexity of products , the revolution in information processing and the pressure of the manufacturing chain are the main reasons for a change in the design process. This results in an emphasis of timely design validation of virtual prototypes instead of bread boarding. The System modeling club of the EEE department attempts to reduce the cycle time involved in prototype delivery. It also focuses in making ingenious ideas a reality. The club’s main aim is to bring the innovative ideas of students to fruition. As a step in this direction, it has taken great efforts in moulding their creativity and imagination by organizing lectures, labs, awareness programs etc. Schools have also come under the ambit of the club which has taken keen interest in encouraging children to come out with new ideas that can transform everyday life by conducting seminars, holding campaigns and lecture-demonstration sessions.
Some of the main projects under taken by the student’s are:
1. Pedal Power Inverter
2. Temple Security System
3. Power Guard System
Gyan Darshan club aims to provide an insight into the new technologies which are dominant in the engineering arena. With a strong focus on Electrical and Electronics Engineering, it serves as a platform for the students to discuss new trends, and apply the same to develop new products of industrial significance and research. The club provides a platform for the students of different semesters to work under a single umbrella. Every week, members present “Technology of the week”, followed by a discussion. The faculty mentors of the club conduct weekly seminars on various technical issues, importance of research in engineering sectors, technical writing, career orientation etc.. Debates and quiz competitions are organized on alternate weeks. An intra college project competition is scheduled once a year. Once in every semester, an expert conducts a session on a current topical area of interest.
