Electronics Hobby Centre

Electronics Hobby Centre is inaugurated on 24-July-2013 by Mr.R.Karthick – Assistant Manager [HRD] Indus Teqsite Pvt. Ltd. in the presence of Dr. P.Gnanasivam, HOD-ECE and Dr.S.R.R.Senthil Kumar, Principal, ACT. EHC is established to conduct several technical workshops, seminars and faculty development programmes.

It also conducts Simulation and Emulation Lab (SE Lab) sessions not in the curriculum to make our students to think out of the box and get involved in the research activity. A separate lab facility is provided for these activities and the lab is named as Sir C. V. Raman Centre for Innovation. The students can become a member and access the full facilities that are available at any time they want.

Activities of EHC:

Every year we conduct Agni Robotics Challenge (ARC), a robotics competition for School, Polytechnic Colleges and Engineering Colleges.
Workshops conducted for students on Raspberry Pi for ECE Department students.
Quadcopter workshop was conducted at our college premises followed which, our students won First prize in the national level competition conducted on Quadcopter at IIT, Delhi.
A faculty development and training program was conducted by EHC on Real-time Embedded Systems using Arduino and LabVIEW. Faculty from various colleges around the state participated in this FDTP.
Two products were launched by the students of ECE Department
Smart Switch, a remote controller for operating your home appliances
Microcompanion, a raspberry pi based microcomputer as a replacement for laptops in classrooms.
Robotics workshop was conducted by Robosapiens India Pvt. Ltd., in our college premises.
Workshop was conducted on LabVIEW for the students of ECE Department.
Workshop was conducted on Network Security.
Arduino workshop was conducted for III year students of ECE department.

An Overview of S&E Lab

Simulation and Emulation laboratory is introduced by the department of ECE apart from the regular curriculum to impart technical exposure and hands on training. This lab syllabus is developed to fill the gap between theory and practical knowledge of the student and to meet the industrial requirement. This lab is included in the regular time table and conducted since 2013.

This lab provides students with a substantial knowledge base as well as fundamental skills and techniques. Here the lecture and laboratory exercises focus on up to date theory, learning manual techniques, problem solving and application of knowledge. The facilities are modern and well equipped for this purpose. To begin the transition to REAL WORLD, students spend time in S & E Laborator.
