The Electrical and Electronics Department held technology intensive interactions that provided students with hands-on experience of some of the industry leading technologies. Guided by staff members, students actively participated also in the planning, logistics and live demonstrations. Arudino Projects: Students got an opportunity to build a moving robot with wheels and control its direction and speed using hardware and software. The 6 day workshop conducted by faculty members guided students in using a low cost and simpler methods to build devices that interact with their environment using sensors and actuators. Participants built devices using sensors for temperature and humidity, ultrasound, IR and motion.
