Chandigarh, February 19, 2005:
Seven third-year students of Punjab Engineering College (PEC) won laurels at an international robotics competition held at the IIT, Mumbai, recently.

The team included Arshdeep Bahga, Himanshu Sachdeva, Nitin Gupta, sahil M. Bansal, amandeep Hans, Anirudh Aggarwal and Gaurav Kochhar.
In the event which saw 1,000 teams from all over the world, PEC students designed a wireless remote-controlled robot which had to fall from a height of one m and align blocks on the ground and a remote-controlled boat for a racing competition in a swimming pool.
Following their success in Techfest at the IIT, Mumbai, these students have been invited to hold a robotics workshop by the students’ chapter of the Institute of Electronics and Electrical Engineers.
