In the month of October, the students of JU–SET attended The Pinkerton Lecture held in the Infosys campus-Bangalore. The basic motive of the lecture was “INTERNET FOR ALL-is the real barrier to reaching this vision; demand, awareness, usability or access technology” and to educate the students about the Information and Communication Technology. The Pinkerton lecture series is in commemoration and honor of John Pinkerton, the pivotal engineer who was involved with designing the world’s first business computer in 1951.In 1949 the catering firm J. Lyons approached John Pinkerton with a vision to radically improve business operations through the implementation of computers, and from there the LEO project began with Pinkerton as chief engineer. In the 2011, Pinkerton lecture Dr. Mike Short discussed sources of innovation and future growth within the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector.
The main objective of this activity is to realize the importance of Basic Science i.e. Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry in the engineering field. There were many activities conducted on these three pillars of engineering. Around 120 students actively participated where they were divided into four groups and two batches. The batches were directed by the whole department of Basic Sciences.
Students enjoyed solving Questionnaire, Funny Facts, Guess Who, Jumble Words and Puzzles and Practical Activity for the students where their innovative imagination came into reality. As a part and parcel of the curriculum we have included activities where each and every student of the school of engineering and technology should succeed in not only in engineering but also as a fraternity.
MATLAB® stands for Matrix-Laboratory and is one of the most used tools in the field of engineering today. The workshop aimed to mold and prepare equipped individuals with a very strong principles and logical tools of MATLAB to face the challenges of the dynamic environment.
Robosapien technologies Pvt. Ltd. has organized workshops for our students where around 250 students have participated. The workshop gave the practical knowledge on assembling and working of Robots.
The workshop aims to facilitate an informal yet vibrant atmosphere, in which a core of eminent resource persons interact with promising junior mathematicians and expose them to different areas of applied mathematics. The program will be light, with a blend of both pedagogy and research talks.
Students visited country’s first aerospace museum, Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) on Nov 25, 2011, as a part of the industrial visit program organized by the department. As they entered the HAL heritage center and aerospace museum at around 11 AM. First, a brief video footage showing HAL’s history from Marut to supersonic Tejas and invention of LCAs, its colossal laboratories and production units with cutting-edge technology, its aircrafts in action, along with the working of ATC (Air Traffic Control) was screened. Next, they walked through galleries of photos and miniature models depicting the company’s 7 decade journey. The museum houses dummy and original aircrafts and engines indigenously built by the company. Some of the original aircrafts displayed are Marut, Lakshya, Chetak, Jaguar, Ajeet, Sea Bird, IJT, ATC Radar, etc. What caught every one’s attention was the upper part of a huge PSLV (Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle), with its interiors also visible.
The visit to GSI was very helpful for the students irrespective of their branches. The students got to know the tedious efforts involved in mining and also where the different types of rocks are available in Karnataka when we were taken to the mapping section. They were shown different types of rocks and ores in the museum. The most interesting one was a million years old petrified dinosaur egg. With every ore attracting our attention, every moment was an enthralling experience for this inquisitive section. From the orientation session held by the GSI Director Mr. Prakash, boosted by audio-visual aids, till the last ounce of probing questions asked by the students, it was an enlightening learning adventure.
JU-SET’s students have visited to the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) as it has become one of the six largest space agencies in the world. The various observations & communication satellites launched by ISRO are the INSAT series, the IRS series, radar imaging satellites, etc. The basic objective of ISRO is to advance space technology and use its applications for national benefit. A team of staunch and zealous students from JU-SET went on an industrial visit to the ISRO satellite centre to cater practical knowledge regarding disparate technologies involved in making a satellite.
