Thus one of the major objectives would be to have training for dummies across the necessary engineering domains. Further there is always an expert lecture series on intellectual property rights and patenting part of the activities. This club is many times misconstrued with art & graphic design , which is not and is more of industrial design ! The various activities include CDGs conceiving ideas in structured brainstorming sessions, skill training sessions for dummies and also encourages to participate in inter-collegiate design contests. There had been interactions from industrial styling experts, concept designers etc. too in the past. Few developed concepts include innovative home appliances, medical instruments, table top holders etc. Interestingly computer engineering students have learnt CAD to mechanical simulation and mechanical students had sessions on embedded tools. This makes the club versatile for any disciple engineering student to nurture and bring their ideas to reality!

Women’s Development Club

“Women”; this word creates a picture, a picture of a mother, a sister, a wife, a daughter and it’s needless to express the essentiality of their well being because most of us are already indebted by their sacrifices, love, and care. As rightly stated in a famous phrase “women hold up half the sky” it means that half credit for the stability of humanity goes to women. Since the dawn of time for humanity, women have always been equally working for the betterment of Society but for some reason they were subdued, abused and were prohibited from equal opportunities in most of the cultures in middle ages, but we are lucky that we have now recognised that anomaly and now are working to provide equal opportunities to them in all spheres of life. Our club is devoted for ensuring the well-being and providing equal opportunities for them by arranging competitions, seminars, presentations, charity events, debates, performances and showcasing their talent.
