Team Aranea from PES University works on novel de-orbiting mechanism for Micro and Nano satellites in low and medium altitude Earth orbits (LEOs & MEOs) in the project called Ultra-thin Wires Drag Enhancement System (UWDES). Ten members of the team attended the International Astronautical Congress (IAC)-2017 held at Adelaide, Australia from Sept 25th to 29th. IAC is the largest annual space tech conference attended by scientists, industry and academia worldwide. The team presented a paper on the UWDES concept, titled “Drag Enhancement for Spacecraft using Numerous Ultra-Thin Wires Arranged into Drag-Wire Webs of Various Configurations”.
Team Aeolus from PES University participated in the AIAA- Design Build and Fly Challenge and secured the 3rd position in Asia and the 27th position worldwide. The team was placed above teams from prestigious universities such as Stanford, Cal Tech and the University of Michigan. In the competition was held in Tucson, Arizona USA, teams were required to develop an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle capable of being loaded into a cylindrical tube. Team Aeolus designed custom mechanisms for the same which led to them having one of the smallest and most efficient planes in the competition.
Rohit of PESIT Bangalore South Campus finished second in the prestigious Boeing National Aeromodelling Festival organised by IIT Kanpur on March 20, 21.
Rohit was representing Team Avions. According to Team Avions mentor Dr SV Satish Rohit was at 5th position in virtual round which constitutes of design and fabrication of the Un-Manned Aircraft (UAV) out of 300 participating colleges including IITs. Later, during aerobatics round, Rohit gave a tough competition to all other teams and finished at 2nd position Overall. The PESIT management, staff and students are extremely happy with Rohit’s achievement. Rohit is in his first year of mechanical engineering.
The team Avions constituting 45 members had qualified in virtual round in SAE Bangalore and SAE Chennai events. The team will now participate in the aerobatic round scheduled for April 2017.

Spraying pesticides, surveillance or monitoring the arboreal environment can put life of tree climbers at great risk. We take great pride in the efforts of our students in devising an innovative solution in the form of a robot that can climb coconut trees in less than five minutes carrying a payload. The robot can perform a wide range of functions by connecting suitable attachments. The portability of the robot adds to the convenience in usage.
Indian Army protects the nation on the borders and comes to the rescue of people when faced with calamities. Strengthening this commitment is the sacrifices by their families. As a tribute to the support by the families, Samarpana event is organized every year by PES University.
Project Mela 2016 showcased more than 160 projects successfully completed by students of PESIT, Bangalore South campus on April 22, 2016. The projects were undertaken during the year by students of Computer Science, Electronics and Mechanical Engineering branches. For students of the institution, learning is also about applying engineering knowledge to solve real world challenges.

Students from PES University will extend medical and legal assistance to the families of around 15 army martyrs across Karnataka this year. Samarpana, a student group dedicated to honour these martyrs has come up with the initiative.
As part of Samarpana’16, this year a charity marathon themed ‘Run with the Jawans’ was organised in the City on Sunday. Kunal Pamami, a student involved with the group, said: “We want to create awareness about the sacrifices of these jawans. Since 2009, we have organised the event for around 60 families where we will be conducting medical and legal camps on matters related to pensions and other grievances.”
The objective of the marathon, according to the students, was to bridge the gap between civilians and jawans by helping the former realise the hardship and sacrifices a jawan experiences in his life.
