The MVJ Center of Excellence in Robotics and Automation was inaugurated by Chief Guest Padma Shri Dr P S Goel, Former Director of Indian Space Research Organization. He interacted with the students and faculty members by sharing some of his experiences in serving the nation. He further stated that, the students should utilize the model of learning where in teachers will do less of teaching and students learn more. He also emphasized that institutes should provide the environment and space for innovation where students being dynamic, highly networked, ambitious and comfortable in adopting new technologies can make wonders happen if opportunities are provided to them.
Industry Expert, Mr. Vasanthakumar Narayan(General Manager,Bosch) illustrated about Robolab, where projects are being developed by a group of people who research and develop a project primarily for the sake of radical innovation. He advised students to realize their potential and break barriers in order to innovate and explore. He spoke about developed countries like Germany, Japan and USA which provide more leverage for innovative thinking. He concluded by saying that solutions can be provided to problems through innovative products, services and processes. The value that Robolab is giving to the institutions is commendable.
We felt honored when the Chief Guest himself said to us that even ISRO would be willing to have a facility like this.
30 students were involved in the extensive training along with some faculties. During the training, trainees worked on Robolab’s Hex crawler, Mobilo, Omibo, MARSian, JCBian and many more advanced technologies.The response that we got was incredible and are also proud to be associated with one of the best engineering colleges in Karnataka.
