Society Activities


M BAJA

M-BAJA is an intercollegiate design competition started in 2007 sponsored by Mahindra & Mahindra and SAEINDIA and hosted by NATRiP, Indore and IIT Ropar. The main objective of the BAJASAEINDIA is to make engineering students’ design and fabricate a prototype of a rugged single seated off-road vehicle intended for sale to a non-professional, weekend off-road enthusiast considering the terrain across INDIA. The evaluation process for the BAJA SAEINDIA is a twofold process and students have to clear the Virtual Baja preliminary round before they start manufacturing their buggy’s for the main events.

The teams are judged on six main parameters in the Virtual BAJA event which are – their knowledge of the rule book, the design of the vehicle, the project plan, the design methodology and the design evaluation plan.

The evaluation process in the main event is a different ball game altogether and the students finally got to showcase their finished buggy’s to the judges. In the static tests the buggy’s are evaluation on various factors such as cost, aesthetics and the quality of the fabrication. There are also many dynamic tests such as acceleration. Braking, maneuverability over all terrain and a hill climb test. But none of these tests are more gruelling than the endurance race where the drivers and buggy’s are pushed to their limits till a winner emerges.

Team CZAR
PDPU participated in the M-BAJA event for the sixth time for the year 2018. This team was comprised of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering undergraduate students. A total of 24 students took part in the team and worked for a year to design, manufacture and test the ATV under the mentorship of Mr. Rahul Deharkar and Dr. Vivek Patel.

INDUSTRY ORIENTATION

Industrial visit

As a part of better exposure to industry practices we recommend our students to visit reputed organizations and interact with people to understand the real world problems and prepare themselves accordingly. Students of 4th semester visit different industries and get a better outlook of the practical scenario of the subjects taught to them in classroom. Industries like Bosch Rexroth, Johnson Controls-Hitachi, Kalpataru Power Transmission, Flowchem Industries and many more are visited every year.



Kalpataru Power Transmission Ltd., GANDHINAGAR.

Industrial visit was carried on 11/02/2018 (Saturday) which was organised under PDPU IIW student chapter at Kalpataru Power Transmission Limited, Gandhinagar. Around 20 students participated in the visit. The whole visit was guided by Mr. Kamlesh Barot (Production Head, KPTL). Our chairman Dr Vishvesh Badheka also accompanied us.

Kalpataru Power Transmission Limited (KPTL) is amongst the largest players firmly entrenched in the global power transmission and infrastructure.It footprints in over 40 countries, executing marquee project that deliver complete solutions covering design, testing, fabrication, erection and construction of transmission lines, oil and gas infrastructure and railways projects .The Company has an annual production capacity of over 180,000 MT of transmission towers at its three state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in India and an ultra-modern tower testing facility, making it amongst the global largest power transmission EPC Company. KPTL’s wide reach and presence includes international geographies like Africa, CIS countries, the Middle East, SAARC, Asia-Pacific and the Americas.

The visit comprised of students visiting the plate section and the angle section .The students were introduced to many industrial machines like CNC,VMC ,the operations like drilling ,punching ,stamping and their applications in making components for the power transmission line .28 grades of mild steel are used in the industry. Cutting operation is performed on plates by plasma cutting machine. In plate section there is a punching section in which holes of particular dimensions are punched on plates. There are CNC as well as PLC manual punching machines which are used for punching plates. According to customers demand drilling is also performed on some plates.

Bending is performed according to design by bending machine. On time checking of bending angle is done by workers through visual inspection. In inspection section all dimensions and quality of final components are checked by manual measuring. If there is any repairable defect then it is moved to weld zone or punching zone.After inspection the plates are galvanized in a separate section where the plates are immersed in a bath for a certain time depending upon the amount of thickness of the layer which is required.

It is rightly said that “See & know’ is better than ‘read & learn’. Students have got real feel of company’s working after this visit. They got a chance to transfer their theoretical knowledge to practical implication. The 2.5 hrs long visit was very fruitful for the students as it exposed them to a lot of industrial learning. This will even help students to understand subject matter clearly in future.

All Student members would like to extend their sincere gratitude to the company for permission and support they gave to make our visit a success with accomplishment of objective and our Head of Department as well as Chairman (IIW-PDPU) Prof. Vishvesh Badheka for arranging this visit for student members.

Civic & Social Service Internship (CSSI)/Rural Internship

As per the directive of the Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India, a Technical program should comprise of at least 20% courses on Humanities and Management. For better execution of policies during one’s professional career, a technocrat is required to come to terms with the realities of life. The importance of civic and social responsibility is paramount to the success of democracy and promotion of dignified living. By engaging in civic responsibility, citizens ensure and uphold certain democratic values written in the Constitution. Those values or duties include justice, freedom, equality, diversity, authority, privacy, participation, truth, patriotism, human rights, rule of law, tolerance, mutual assistance, self-restraint and self-respect. School of Technology, under the aegis of Pandit Deendayal Petroleum University, established by a special act of Assembly (2007), has introduced Civic and Social Service Internship as a training requirement integral to B.Tech. Program for first year students. It is conceptualized as a platform for pre-planned, organized, structured, supervised off-campus experiences with an academic context.

Associating oneself in understanding issues of civic amenities, societal grievances and models of providing succour to needy and unprivileged, one comprehends meaning of life and living. By getting their hands dirty and actually doing work, students experience the value and impact of giving to people and learn to be productive members of society.

Importance

Volunteering is a form of civic responsibility which involves giving of time or labour without the expectation of compensation in any form. Many people volunteer through NGOs in several ways. Volunteering allows students the opportunity to share their skills and talents as well as to learn new skills while helping those in need of assistance.

Civic Education is a method to teach civic responsibility. It is a way to promote and enlighten responsible citizenry committed to democratic principles. Civic education is a means to actively engage people in the practice of democracy.

Civic and Social Responsibility is comprised of actions and attitudes associated with democratic governance and social participation. Civic responsibility can include participation in government, volunteers and memberships of voluntary associations. Actions of civic responsibility can be displayed in advocacy for various causes, such as political, economic, civil, environmental or quality of life issues.

The students are trained to plan and execute an extensive range of social services, social welfare activities, and work in health and philanthropic organizations.

Objectives of CSSI

  • To develop a holistic view of social work and social welfare in the community, with special emphasis on the role of different agencies like Govt. departments and NGOs in human services.
  • To enlighten and sensitize students on various types of problems of the people and their diversified cultural background.
  • To understand the agency as an organization, its structure, functions, activities and sources of funding.
  • To understand and make a commitment to the basic humanistic values and principles of social work practice in a secular democratic society.
  • To develop an understanding of the application of the methods of social work practice in the field.
  • To develop an understanding of the opportunities in working with diverse populations.
  • To develop the self –awareness necessary to assess one’s own values, attitudes, feelings, strengths, limitations, and interests and performance.
  • To inspire young technocrats to become change makers
