To bridge the gap between the academic knowledge and the current trends and technology used in the industry, PIET provides mandatory projects for students. These projects enhance the understanding of the students to have in depth practical utility of the contents in real life application. To help the students in these projects the senior faculty act as their mentors right from the beginning to the final submission of the projects.
Students are allocated projects relating to their academic streams, to be successfully completed under the guidance of their mentors from the college and supervision of industrial experts from the industrial world. With the vision of imparting practical knowledge and letting the students gain command over the theoretical concepts taught in the lectures, we take pride in including Project Work as a part of the curriculum, here at PIET. The Management and faculty specially ensures that project work is accomplished as an advanced hands-on training to convert theoretical skills into practical initiative. This focus on applied part of domain knowledge has often led the talented students to come up with redesigned technology and successfully create new prototypes for public comfort. The teachers & students of all departments are earnest in carrying out the project works with a spirit of rigour and innovation. The students of Mechanical Engineering extended the applications of automobile air-conditioning technology and redesigned its compact use in a tractor to provide respite to the toiling farmers in summer conditions. The model is undergoing a process of testing to fine-tune it to become a landmark in Mechanical Engineering. Another group of students of Mechanical Engineering has designed and fabricated Motorized Personal Transportation Vehicle, commercially known as Segway. The prototype is based on self-balancing motor-operated, eco friendly means of transportation, using two motors of18 hp and 18 volt to power the vehicle which moves on two independent chain drives.
Likewise, the students of IT have developed some standard projects Like Hook My Book, E-Brokerage System, Billing System, by reconfiguring existing softwares to facilitate the customer’s requirement and enable them to complete business expeditiously. The students of ECE have also gone ahead with constructive thinking a have come up with simpliﬁed, inexpensive models of Humidity Indicator & Controller, Digital Thermometer & Controller, Edge Avoider Robot, and Microcontroller Based Code Lock, etc.
The budding mangers of B.B.A. have undertaken various projects on corporate social responsibility. Medical Tourism in India, E- Marketing, Value Marketing, Online Trading, Employee Engagement, ServQual Analysis in Hotel Industry, Gap Analysis in Aviation Sector are some of the outstanding projects that have not only been acclaimed by the companies but also referred to by them to take their strategic decisions.
The students of MCA have also accomplished innovative projects on software design that are highly user-friendly. The E-Kirana Store, Online Appraisal System, Mobile Apps for Medanta Hospital are the distinguished ones amongst many others designed by the students.
In the same vein, the Students of CSE have developed several websites, desktop and data processing programmes using latest computer languages. OwnCloud System, Student Record Management, Online Examination System and Algorithm-based Data Processing are some among several innovative initiatives by the budding engineers.
In this line, PIET has gone a step forward by establishing international collaboration between PIET & NJII New Jersey, the USA, to enhance & strengthen joint research projects. Under the aegis of this collaboration, our talent pool of six students had six week rigorous training at NJIT in lune-August 2013 to carry out innovative projects as a part of speciﬁed Research at Development activity. These projects are being finalized under the expert guidance of NJIT faculty for international level publications.
Mechanical Department has made and electric card which is based on reverse trike bike that has two wheels in front and one wheel in the back by using a CVT’ engine and double wishbone suspension in a Honda Activa. A belt driven CVT used to allow engine to turn at the rpm at which it produces greatest power. Frame is built keeping in mind the stability factor. A taper frame was preferable to keep width less in front and double wishbone suspension is built using iron pipe. Reverse trike improves aerodynamics and with two wheels in the front the vehicle is far more stable in breaking turns but remains more prone to overturning in normal turns compare to an equivalent four wheel vehicle, unless the center of mass is lowest and further forward. This is the PIET way of inspiring the young budding engineers to excel and be future-ready. The students of ECE department developed a remotely operated quad copter i.e. an unmanned aerial vehicle. It consists of 4 brushless D C motor, 4 channel transmitter and receiver, flight controller, 4 ESCs, 1 Li-Po battery, 4 propellers etc. The various applications of this project will be aerial imagery and spying, search operations, air sensing engines in cities, fertilizers, pesticides sprayers for crops, surveillance, mining, product delivery, archaeological surveying etc.
