Workshops & Seminars
Seminar on Design/Reverse Engineering/3D Printing
Mantide Technologies on 9/3/17 explained the features of product designing and a hands on workshop was organized for the students in 3D printing.
The 2nd International Conference on “Emerging Trends in Mechanical Engineering” (ICETME ’15) was held on the serene campus of Toc H Institute of Science & Technology (TIST), Cochin during 3 -5th September, 2015 in association with National Institute of Technology, Surathkal (NITK). The 41 scientific participants had many fruitful discussions and exchanges that contributed to the success of the conference. Participants from 3 countries made the conference truly international in scope. The papers that were presented on the first two days formed the heart of the conference and provided ample opportunity for discussion. The papers were split almost equally between the five main conference verticals, i.e., Aerospace Engineering, Manufacturing Technology, Material Science, Thermal Engineering, and Design Engineering.
All the 41 presented papers are included in this ISBN numbered proceedings volume. There were 5 keynote lectures covering the different areas of the conference: Dr. Shuichi Torrii (Kumamoto University) from Japan talked on production and transfer technologies for global warming suppression. Dr. Ruwan Gopura (Moratuwa University) from Srilanka on development of novel mechanisms for upper-limb prostheses, Dr. C. Lakshmana Rao (Indian Institute of Technology), Madras on energy absorption of crash tubes and bumper system using high strength aluminum alloys. Other Keynote lectures were from R. Ramesh Kumar (Government Engineering College, Barton Hill), Dr. K. Sudarshnan (Scientist, DRDO(NPOL)) and Job Kurian (Advisor IIT Palakkad).
The National Conference on Emerging Trends in Mechanical, safety engineering and management science was held in Toc H Institute of Science & Technology, on 30th September and 1st October. This meeting brought together technocrats, academicians, researchers and developers to discuss recent developments in the field of emerging trends in manufacturing technology. The conference continued to have good participation by members of the Aeronautical Society of India (AeSI Kochi), Indian Institute of Production Engineers (IIPE), EDS Technologies, which allowed sharing of ideas. The trend of strong participation in this conference continued, with 48 participants from different parts of the country.
The objective of National Conference was to establish an effective channel of communication between technocrats, academics and research institutions, and developers. It also aimed to promote and coordinate developments in the entire field of mechanical, safety engineering and management science. The conference focused on original research works with special emphasis on research and development that contributed significantly to further the knowledge in engineering, technology and Management, addition to, it covers all the sustainable development aspects related.
Seminar on “Sustainable development through Mechanical Engineering”
A two day seminar was organized from 11th—12th August, 2014. The seminar theme concentrated on “Sustainable development through mechanical engineering”. The objective of this seminar was to bring light on the inevitable role of mechanical engineers in sustainable development. The seminar aimed to reach out the major pillars of mechanical engineering and thereby lay the foundation for our budding engineers to work towards the betterment of our society in a sustainable way. The seminar was attended by students of mechanical engineering and few external participants. The active discussion with the distinguished speakers made this program an informative one for those who participated.
WORKSHOP ON ENGINEERING THERMODYNAMICS –IIT BOMBAY
In order to enhance the teaching skills of faculty, IIT Bombay conducted a 10 day workshop on Engineering Thermodynamics from 11th to 21st December 2012. The interactive workshop conducted was live, in distance mode, using the internet and AVIEW technology at selected remote centers. Our college, Toc H Institute of Science & Technology was one of the remote centers for IIT Bombay.
