What SIGs we have in Mechanical Engineering and the kind of exposure we give through SIGs.
A Special Interest Group (SIG) is a group within an institute with a shared interest in advancing a specific area of Mechanical knowledge, learning or technology where mechanical students cooperate to affect or to produce solutions within their particular field of SIG Group. We provide a forum to enhance student’s knowledge in Mechanical Engineering Fields, by involving themselves in mechanical projects. At present, Mechanical Department has SIX SIG’s and ONE club is as follows:
Additive manufacturing SIG aims to provide the students a detailed knowledge of additive manufacturing technique through the avenue of (but not restricted to) 3D printing. The technique includes teaching the SIG students, how to use & construct 3D printers, designing models, parts for 3D printing and CAM processes. This SIG aims to provide the students, the insights of Manufacturing Engineering Techniques, such as design philosophies and how to translate engineering ideas into producible parts and projects. These concepts can be used practically in illustrating the theory taught in the classroom on Additive Manufacturing, and provide valuable experience for career paths in Additive Manufacturing to the students. The Faculty Advisor for this SIG is Mr. Naman Gandhi (Asst. Prof. Mechanical Engineering Department).
Automotive SIG deals with the development of off-road vehicles. The SIG deals in the following:
In this SIG, students manufacture ATV and take part in different events as well as conduct some workshops for junior students from first and second year.
Also the SIG conducts sessions, seminars, Expert Lectures, Technical Talks etc. to improve the student’ s knowledge on Auto motives. The Faculty Advisor for this SIG is Mr. Akashdeep Gupta (Asst. Prof. Mechanical Engineering Department).
Mechatronics SIG aims to integrate the Mechanical Engineering with Electronics Engineering and Computer Engineering in the design and manufacturing of products and processes & it has futuristic application in the cutting edge Technology. This exposes essentials in the design of intelligent products and transforms their concepts into reality. This SIG teaches wide range of applications especially in robotics, industrial & home automation, home appliances, inline assembly of automobiles, engine management system, aerospace, nuclear & marine Engineering. The Faculty Advisor for this SIG is Mr. Punit Mishra (Asst. Prof. Mechanical Engineering Department).
Artificial intelligence (AI) refers to the simulation of human intelligence in machines that are programmed to think like humans and mimic their actions. The term may also be applied to any machine that exhibits traits associated with a human mind such as learning and problem-solving.
The ideal characteristic of artificial intelligence is its ability to rationalize and take actions that have the best chance of achieving a specific goal. A subset of artificial intelligence is machine learning, which refers to the concept that computer programs can automatically learn from and adapt to new data without being assisted by humans. Deep learning techniques enable this automatic learning through the absorption of huge amounts of unstructured data such as text, images, or video. The Faculty Advisor for this SIG is Mr. Mukesh Sharma (Asso. Prof. Mechanical Engineering Department).
Solid Works software allows you to get design and models to the market quicker. It also allows your engineers and designers to quickly make changes to design, solve design problems and construct products in a cost-effective manner, as errors are automatically detected early by the program.
Solid works uses:
RAC stands for Refrigeration and Air Conditioning. The RAC SIG at IIST aims to train the students in the field of Refrigeration and Air Conditioning.
Here we offer Practical exposure to the various Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Systems and their Components as well as the Students are also trained in the various Softwares related to RAC.The RAC SIG conducts expert lectures, Webinars, Seminars, and Competitions related to Refrigeration and Air conditioning Field..
The RAC SIG is headed by HOD Dr. D. V. Singh (Ph.D. in Refrigeration) and the Faculty Coordinator is Mr. Lokesh Aurangabadkar (Ph.D. pursuing in Refrigeration).
Aeromodelling Club works to cultivate and develop aerodynamic skills among students by carrying out practical activities. It aims at providing fine details involved in the construction and testing of aero models to students so that they can develop air-mindedness and motivate themselves to participate and win in the national level tech-fests. Various competitions like Water Rocket competition, Cruze Control etc. are held regularly in this club. Apart from this, students are also involved in the designing of RC planes, drones and hovercrafts. The Faculty Advisor for this SIG is Mr. Naman Gandhi (Asst. Prof.) Mechanical Engineering Department.
It is an initiative of Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) under the National Mission on Education through ICT. The Department of Mechanical Engineering conducts virtual labs programs organized by different IITs across the country
SWAYAM is an initiative by Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India. World’s largest SWAYAM MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), a new paradigm of education for anyone, anywhere, anytime, as per your convenience, aimed to provide digital education free of cost and to facilitate hosting of all the interactive courses prepared by the best more than 1000 specially chosen faculty and teachers in the country. SWAYAM MOOCs enhances active learning for improving lifelong learning skills by providing easy access to global resources.
