EVENTs

The department maintains a very vibrant academic atmosphere through varies academic initiatives.

E-Cube (Enrichment, Enhancement and Empowerment) Programme

Various activities are organized through the E-cube event during every academic year for the students. Every individual student participates in paper presentation on a technical topic of their interest. The third and final year student had to present a mini-project plan. Eminent people are invited from the core industries to judge the student competence and to expose them to real life challenges. The projects are analyzed to industrial standards and are given valuable assistance for implementation. The students are also guided for resume writing and a mock interview is conducted by officials invited from core companies. The event is well appreciated by our alumni as it enabled the students to enrich, enhance and empower themselves to be ready for the future industry.

Research and Consultancy

Sponsored Project

Solar Energy Project:

  • Establishing a 3X5kWp Solar PV Plant, Partly funded by MNRE, Government of India, through TANGEDCO, TN. MSEC has set up a 15 kWp solar PV system. It has three types of solar panels, namely, mono-crystalline (5kWp), Polycrystalline (5kWp) and thin film (5kWp). We have initiated a few projects using these. It is our ambition to generate an exhaustive data base of solar panels at varying operational conditions and supplying various types of loads at one site. The data would lead to the development of a useful process model of solar energy utilization. These engineering data would be invaluable input to design of large scale solar energy systems. System performance and reliability in specific application will be monitored.
  • Consultancy work done for Micro pixel ltd, for manufacturing Bosh motor parts using advanced measuring and manufacturing facilities like faro-CMM, CNC –lathe, Milling and grinding machineries available at department manufacturing lab.
