The incharges of this trip were Mrs. Saloni Sharma and Mr. Sushil Kumar escorted 32 students of B.Sc (Sem II and IV) to CSIO labs with the purpose to inspire the students to think out of box and have insight of the research work underlying the development of technology. The students were guided by the scholars of the institution to various labs. Mechatronics lab instructor explained the importance of a programming based device over exhausting computer work. The scholars explained the combination of mechanics and electronics to create a booming mechatronics.
A large computer programme was designed by the scholars to reduce labor and cost using basics of C+, C++ languages. The working of Pick and place robot and Mig welding robot were explained to the students. Mechanical and Advanced manufacturing lab consists of different instruments to check the perfectness of shapes of surfaces like roundness, flatness, inclination etc. The Working model of different section of a factory like manufacturing unit, testing and packaging and storage units were also demonstrated to the students. Moreover, the details of flight simulator were explained about how pilots of fighter planes target their rival for attack.
Students also visited food testing and adulteration lab, Nanotechnology lab, agrionics lab, microbiology lab
