3. MECHTRONIA 2K17 – 10th and 11th April 2017

“MECHTRONIA”, tech fest conducted by the department of Mechanical Engineering at VAST-TC on 10th and 11th of April 2017 . The event was inaugurated on 10 th of April by Dr. T Madhavraj Ravikumar, HOD of Mechanical Engineering VAST-TC. Dr.B.Anil ( Academic Director, VAST-TC), Prof. Vijayakumar K.(Principal), Smt Anitha Vijayan (Trustee Coordinator) and Mr. J. Suresh (PTA President) were present. For the success of this event each and everyone in ME department is indebted to our HOD, who stood by our side and gave valuable instructions.

MECHTRONIA was a very different experience, the students had the chance to showcase their talents and at the same time they had technical workshops to polish their skills.


On 10th of April, 8th and 6th semester ME students had CNC sessions. Both theory and practical sessions were conducted by Mr.Vimal, Mr.Renjeesh, Mr.Ajayakumar (Assistant Professors ME) under the leadership of Mr.Bijeesh (Associate Professor ME).


On the same day, 4th and 2nd semester students were taught how to dismantle and assemble IC engines.

As a mechanical engineer the students must not only know the theory behind the working of IC engines but must be familiar with the various parts and uses of each components in the engine. The objective of this course was to make students understand each components of IC engine and also learn the working of each component by physically assembling and dismantling an engine.


The students of 4th  and 2nd  semester also had a workshop on “MECHATRONICS” by Mr.Rahul (Founder and CEO, Engineer’s Gallery). Mechatronics is a blend of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer control and information technology. The objective of the workshop was to make our students understand the basics of mechatronics and also the basics of microcontroller programming. The students got to work with microcontroller using the basic sensors.


Like the first day, second day of MECHTRONIA was eventful as well. The morning session for 8th and 6th semester students started with a talk on “TECHNICAL & HR INTERVIEW TECHNIQUES” by Mr.Ajay (HR Associate Operations, UST GLOBAL). The session concentrated on the how to prepare for interviews and the various techniques to reduce stress during interviews and simultaneously for 4th and 2nd semester students had a technical talk by Mr.E J FRANCIS (Rtd. Group Director VSSC).


Then the whole Mechanical department had the opportunity to  attend  a seminar on “ROAD SAFETY AND NEW TRENDS IN AUTOMOBILES”, which was conducted by Mr.Sajith V (RTO, Attingal) and Mr.Firoz M (AMVI, Attingal). Also the bus-drivers of VAST-TC also attended the seminar on road safety.

A technical quiz for Mechanical Engineering students followed the seminar. Mr. Rohit Raj (Asst. Prof ME) was the quiz master.Through the two days of MECHTRONIA the students got a very good platform to showcase and improve their mechanical engineering skills. The students got an opportunity to learn a lot about the various aspects of engineering as well as managerial qualities. All of us were really happy about the things that each and everyone have done together for the fest. Self confidence of the students were boosted. We could see senior students helping out juniors. Together a lot of positive things came into our attitude after the fest.

All students of mechanical engineering worked hard to make the fest a grand success. The foundation of success was the help and support of the staffs of ME department. who gave their wholesome support. They gave clear guidelines and stayed overnight to help bring out the best out of our students.The students are truly guided to become excellent engineers with empathy and compassion.

This is just an inception towards greatness. We hope with immense support from the staffs and management, VAST-TC can definitely come up with great ideas and tech fests of this kind, where our students will get real good technical exposure.

4. Guest Lecture on CoEDAS through Hyper Works Software

As a part of giving the students a brief idea about the current trends in Design software in Mechanical Engineering and motivating the students, a one hour guest lecture on COEDAS DESIGN SOFTWARE with HYPERWORKS TOOLS for Mechanical Engineering students was conducted on 8/02/2017 at Seminar Hall. The Resource Person was Mr.Gopikrishnan (MD- iNCAETEK). The motivation for organising this event was to equip our students with as much information and ideas in the design trends in our industries  so that they will be self-motivated to choose their area of interest after the completion of  B.Tech program.

5. Guest Lecture on Autodesk Fusion 360 software

As a part of giving the students a brief idea about the current trends in Design software in Mechanical Engineering and motivating the students, a half day guest lecture on Fusion 360 software (Mechanical Engineering Design Software) was conducted on 21st February 2017 at Seminar Hall. The Resource Person was Mr.Satheeshkumar, Sr.Application Engineer, Intercad solutions, Trivandrum. The motivation of organising this event was to equip students with as much information and ideas in the design trends in our industries regarding not only one but various leading software products and to self-motivate them to find add on courses along with their B.Tech programme.

6. Industrial Visit

The second year (4th Semester) Mechanical Engineering students visited Wonderla Amusement Park, Ernakulam on 24th February.

61 Students participated in the industrial visit and were accompanied by three faculties, Mr. Avinash, Mr. Ranjeesh Sugathan and Ms. Divya Sabu. This industrial visit was arranged at Ernakulam so that students were able to see and understand the various hydraulics systems, power transmission drives and mechanical systems.
