From the mobile phones that we use everyday to the electronic devices that assist us in each and every step are in the constant transformation. All the top industries are investing a lot of resources on innovation and R&D to meet the demand and match the competitions.
With such rapid innovations happening around us, it is essential that many engineers with advanced technological skills will be required by top industries.
Especially if you are an Electrical Engineer, as electrical engineering is the core for Robotics Industries, Internet of Things (IoT) and Smart Energy Systems that are in the hot technologies list of today.
While the syllabus/course hasn’t changed much in electrical engineering from the day they are introduced, you should look for other opportunities to improve technical skills on latest technologies.
Winter training programs are one such opportunity that helps you to acquire latest technological skills by utilizing your winter vacation in a productive way.
So here I’m listing some of the winter training programs that are recommended for an electrical engineering (EEE) student to acquire the latest technological knowledge,
This winter training program on Robotics helps you get started in Robotics domain and gives you the skills needed to build your own Robots. You will learn the theory, understand the working and usage of various sensors and learn programming of microcontrollers. You will then implement the skills gained to build 7 different types of robots.
You will develop the following robotics projects during this robotics winter training program:,
1. Basic level robots that you will build are:
2. Medium level robots that you will build are:
3. Advanced level robotics projects that you will build are:
If you want to pursue a career in the field of robotics then this course will be the right choice for you to learn all the basics and get skilled on technologies.
You will not only learn the theory behind robotics, you will also develop skills in wireless communications, microcontroller programming, embedded systems and sensors working & calibration.
Smart energy systems are technologies designed to optimize storage, distribution and efficient usage of energy. As the energy demand is increasing day by day, more industries are starting to implement these technologies to meet their energy requirements in a smarter way.
Through this winter training program you learn the theoretical concepts behind the smart energy systems and use the skills gained to develop 4 different projects on it.
You will learn to build the following projects during the course,
If you are passionate about embedded systems then this course will be an ideal platform for you to learn and get skilled in it.
Especially if you are in your 3rd or 4th year, then this is a must do training program for you. Since you need to develop academic projects, the knowledge that you will gain through this training will help you to develop innovative engineering projects.
Reports state that IoT industry is going to transform into a multi-trillion dollar market by the year 2020. And there will be a great demand for engineers who can work on this latest technology.
In this project-based training, you will learn about the theoretical concepts behind IOT and you will then implement the knowledge gained to build 2 different projects on IOT.
The IoT projects that you will build are,
If you are serious about having a career in the field of Internet of Things (IoT), then this is the right course for you to learn and begin your journey. This winter training program helps you to learn IoT by building projects and implement the knowledge gained to develop industrial grade projects.
For some reasons if you are unable to attend any winter training programs, you can still improve your skills by building projects on latest technologies hands-on. Although building projects is tough, you can ease of that by enrolling for some online courses/ project-based courses to get the initial guidance and support.
To help you in this, we at Skyfi Labs have developed some amazing online project-based courses that make learning by building projects super easy for you. You can simply select the course of your choice and register online and we will send you the hardware kits & provide online content/ support to help you complete the project within your winter vacation. It's that simple!
