The faculty of Mechanical Engineering department have conducted various Value Added Courses
to our present second and third year students from 25.06.2018 to 27.06.2018.
During these days the students enrolled for various Value added courses that
are helpful for their carrier. Around 21 students of third year enrolled for
the "Current trends in Manufacturing Systems Management for Engineering Industries" .During this course,
the students had an overview of the topics such as Manufacturing Systems Management:
An Overview and Challenges, Value Analysis, Lean manufacturing, Importance of
Information Process Flow Sequence for Quality Products, Expectations of Manufacturing
Industries from Engineering Students also the students were taken to industrial v
isit to companies such as M/S Orbinox India and M/S Sirius Engineering Private
Limited, Coimbatore. The whole course was taken by Dr. Elangovan,
Dr. Sivanandha Devi, Mr. Anantharaman Mr Nanthakumar and Ms Hemamalini fromM/S Intelligence Quality,
Chennai. The whole session is very useful for the students to gain
knowledge about the manufacturing process and its challenges. The faculty
Mr Nagarjun organized a Value Added Course on "Hands on training on
Interfacing of Sensors" at Sensorics Lab in which about
15 students participated in the training programme and learnt the method
of interfacing sensors with the NI DAQ (National Instruments Data Acquisition Card).
The training also helped students to learn calibration of sensor and to obtain
digital data for further analysis. The students were taught with programming using
LabVIEW software. Sessions on basics and working of sensors helped the students in
understanding the sensor better and provided fundamentals required for the hands on
training of interfacing the sensor with the computer.
The students were also learnt how to programme and actuate the motor, buzzer etc., based on the acquired result of the sensor. The Course will help the students in developing their project in the field of automation and experimental analysis also the students gained in depth knowledge in the domain of sensors and experimentation. Dr. Manojkumar, Mr Prem Kumar and Mr Avinash Kumar organized a Value Added Course on "Computational Fluid Dynamics", in which about 15 students enrolled for this course. During the course the students could able to know about the need for computational fluid dynamics and overview on Finite Volume Method with Simple one dimensional conduction problem by solving both Analytically and Numerically by considering equations and boundary conditions. During the course many simple problems were solved by the students which would help for them to do their projects related to CFD.
