Best mini projects for ECE students with low cost

For any engineering student, mini project serves as an effective platform to showcase their skillsets. Whether it is going to be the examiner or the interviewer, you would like to impress them with your projects which actually reflects your engineering career.

But doing a good mini project is not easy, as there are a lot of factors that influence it. The most important factors that influence your mini project are,

  1. Cost
  2. Time
  3. Availability of resources

Out of these, cost is the most important influential factor for majority of the mini projects. As an engineering student you will be able to spend a lot of your time on building projects and also utilize your college infrastructure for doing mini projects, but you will not be able to spend more money for your project for obvious reasons.

Good IoT projects for computer science engineering (CSE) students

“With the IoT, we’re headed to a world where things aren’t liable to break catastrophically – or at least we’ll have a hell of a heads’ up. We’re headed to a world where our doors unlock when they sense us nearby.”

– Scott Weiss

Internet of Things in short IOT is an amazing technology which is completely transforming the existing technologies into an entirely new dimension as we see it.

Being a computer science engineering student you might be wondering what makes IoT so powerful in the current market, also you might be confused about being a CSE student what kind of opportunities that you have in this technology.

Well, you are not alone. A lot of students have this query and I am taking this article as an opportunity to explain the importance of IOT and how a computer science engineering student can improve skills in them to develop an exciting career.

Good format for Engineering Final Year Project Report

The scope of final year engineering project extends beyond the curriculum and greatly assists one in landing in their future core job or getting higher studies admission in reputed universities.

In general, final year engineering projects are considered to be the reflection of a student’s learning in his/ her four years of engineering. But doing a good final year project alone is not enough, it needs to be presented neatly in the standard format so that it can represent the different aspects of the project in a descriptive manner.

So, proper efforts should be put into developing the final year engineering project report as it provides concrete information about the project and helps the reader to go through it in a structured manner.

Often students who have done a great final year project fail to draft a good project report because of which he/ she were unable to showcase all of their learnings / understandings of their project to the examiner and authorities, and end up with scoring low scores in projects.

Good format for Engineering Mini Project Report

With the recent technological advancements it is evident that the industries will be needing engineers who can work hands-on and provide solutions for real-time problems.

So, how do these industries identify the engineers who can work hands-on?

It is relatively simple, they just go through the project building experience of the engineering graduates, especially they like to know more about the projects that they have done as part of their engineering curriculum.

The academic projects that we do will simply help to showcase our skillsets to the recruiters. But building good mini projects alone is not enough to get the recruiters attention.

How to conduct a faculty development program in mechanical engineering?

Currently India ranks third among the most attractive investment countries for technology in the world. Also India ranks second in terms of the contribution towards the high-quality scientific research in the world.

In addition, we have created a lot of buzz around the world lately with the announcements of numerous Indian space missions and Make-in-India initiative.

These points make us realise that India is establishing itself as a leader in industrialisation and technological development. For such establishment to happen, India will be needing a lot of engineers, especially mechanical engineers who are well trained in latest technologies.

5 Reasons why you should organize a faculty development program in Electrical & Electronics Engineering (EEE)

“Efforts to develop critical thinking falter in practice because too many professors still lecture to passive audiences instead of challenging students to apply what they have learned to new questions”
-Derek Bok

With the unprecedented growth of institutions in the past 2 decades across the nation, there is a significant shortage of updated & well trained faculties.

This in turn poses a great challenge to the quality of education provided to the young and budding engineering students. Because of this, many educational institutions are finding it difficult to maintain their education standards, as providing state of the art infrastructure alone is not enough but having the right faculty is equally important.

5 Tips to make your faculty development program in Electronics and Communication Engineering more effective

The number of engineering colleges are increasing day by day, making India as one of the largest producer of engineers in the world. And we have seen this trend reaching peaks in the past few years. ECE (Electronics and Communication Engineering) is one of the most popular among students and a number of colleges offer this. This particular department plays a very important role in the success of the college.

To meet the heavy competition from other colleges, a lot of colleges are inculcating new processes to put themselves ahead of their peers. One important aspect that colleges need to do is strengthening their faculty department through organizing faculty development programs and increasing their skillsets.

While it became a common trend that a number of colleges started organizing faculty development programs in their campus, the question here is whether they are able to get more output from it or not?

Best gift for high school students:

Have you ever wondered how the practice of gifting started in the first place?

With a little bit of research, you will be amazed to know that this tradition has been in practice for thousands of years as far as man can remember.

It all started with people gifting others and inferred it as a status symbol to prove the dominance of their tribe or clan. And interestingly the gifts that they gave are unusual objects like a shaped rock, a tooth from an animal, the bark from a tree or some other item of nature which they felt unique.

Best Robotics Kits for Engineering Students

“Forget cyborgs – Biohybrid robots are here”

Scientists have created robots of all shapes and sizes with increasing complexity in the past decades. The functions of these robots vary from carrying out industrial activities to killing cancer cells or healing wounds. But these robots lack fine movements and energy efficiency as found in living organisms.

For this, scientists had come up with a solution to integrate living cells in artificial robots to improve their performance and energy efficiency. And this is not just a theoretical concept, already a lot of scholars had started working on this at the BioRobotics Institute in Pisa.

Such is the pace in which robotics industry is evolving and there is a great requirement for engineers who can work on latest robotics technologies.
