The department has sought permission to establish R & D centre in the academic year 2014-15.

Mission10x Technology Learning Center (MTLC)

MTLC is a collaborative effort between Mission10X and partner institution to enhance the Engineering attributes of the Engineering graduates through Project Based Learning (PBL). MTLC contextualizes the Mission10X approach in the Engineering context. MTLCs use Unified Technology Learning Platform (UTLP), an innovative embedded systems platform developed by Mission10X for PBL.

PROJECT LABORATORY

The Solar PV Training & Research System is a mini-Solar PV Plant Prototype
which enables students and faculty to understand in-depth concepts about stand-alone PV systems. The product also provides research orientation on several concepts such as MPPT, inverter control etc. The system consists of individual plug-in units each with components for different experimental arrangements. The conception of the system allows indoor and outdoor experiments. Additional options are the change of slope angle of the module to see the effect of tilt.

Industrial automation training facility (which includes Programmable Logic Controller, Variable Speed Drive, Motor, Sensors and Actuators) is setup in the project lab which enables students & faculty to undergo research and training.
