Mechanical Engineering Students Association (MESA)

Activities Conducted By MESA during the Academic Year 2015-16

1) Know Thy Institute (20-Aug-2015)

This unique quiz that tests the fresh first year students’ knowledge and alerntess about the various aspects of the institute was conducted successfully for the second year in continuation.  The quiz recieved enthusiatic response from all students

2) Engineers’ Day Celebration (15th Sept.)

15th Sept was celeberated as Engineers’ Day by MESA. Three activities were conducted viz ; Auto Quiz, CAD Modeliing Competition and Seminar on Research Paper writing. All these evets were well recived by students.

3) RC Aircraft Design and Fabrication Workshop (15-16 Oct. 2015)

 The 2-day workshop was conducted on the occasion of birth anniversary of Dr APJ Abdul Kalam on 15-16 Oct. 135+ students participated in the workshop (including few students from other colleges like MIT Pune)

The workshop started with the theoretical background of aerodynamics and design calculations. The students started fabrication of aircraft models based on the design calculations and other considerations, under the guidance of experts. The students fabricated RC Aircraft models over the period of two days and then these models wee flown by the expert flyers on 16th evening. The flying session continued till 9:30 pm on 16th. It was a great hands-on learning experience for the participating students.

4) Mobile controlled Robotics Workshop (26th Oct 2015)

This one-day workshop on mobile controlled robotics was conducted on 26th Oct 2015. More than 90 students from all classes of SIT participated in the same. The students were given some theoretical briefing about Robot controls and programming, and were taught basic practical aspects of using electronic circuits and micro-controllers.
The participants then fabricated small working models of robots, which were controlled by their mobile phones.
