     Pecobians display innovation at Open House'08

Chandigarh, April 26th 2008

For the first time the students of Punjab Engineering College, Deemed University, organized ‘Open House – 2008’, a first of its kind event in the region. This concept was brought to the institute by the new director, Dr. Manoj Datta. The Open House has been initiated as an annual event as an insight for the school students to the facilities and technical activities of the college.

The inauguration ceremony began at 9:30 where ‘Open House-2008’ was declared “open to all public” by the Director of PEC, who briefed the audience about the role of technology in human life and launched the ‘The Open House 2008’ magazine which was distributed amongst the visitors, with a promise of a longer event next year. The Dean Academic Affairs, Dr. Ashwani Prasher highlighted the role of PEC as a premium technical institute of the country and the various academic achievements and course curriculum of the institute; which was followed by a presentation by the Training and Placement Officer of PEC, Dr. M.L. Gupta on the scenario of on-campus placements and trainings over the past few years. Thereafter, the Dean Research and Planning, Dr. Arun K. Lall gave an informative session on the Research and Consultancy activities being undertaken by the college faculty and students. The student convenor, Gaurav Gehlawat informed the students about the various technical and co-curricular activities in the college.

The students were taken to various college laboratories where they could have a closer look at the projects prepared by PEC students. The students thoroughly enjoyed this knowledgeable experience which helped them gain a clearer perspective of their goal. The students were provided with refreshments during the visit. They responded enthusiastically to the enlightening seminars on “Technology: shaping the future”.

At the end of the event, Awards were presented to the best three projects by the PEC Alumnus society, PECOSA. The first prize was awarded to Anu Chauhan, Pallavi, and Priyanka Singh, under the guidance of Prof. Ajay Mittal, for their IT based project “Offline signature verification”. The second prize was given to Ankit Sethi, Amandeep, and Deepak Garg, under the guidance of Prof. Arun Kumar Singh, for their Electronics based project “Path finder”. The third prize was awarded to Noor Maini, Pulkit Kapoor, Prabhjot Singh, under the guidance of Prof. Tejbir Kaur, for “Rolling cylinder robot rover”.

After a day filled with a lot of excitement and new happenings, the students were very happy to have been able to be a part of something this innovative. This has indeed helped them in realizing that PEC is really an asset to the city.
