Plan For The Club
Initially hundred and forty students had registered in the club, among which hundred and twenty are regular. The club holds twenty teams with six members in it. The members were briefed on the activity plan and purpose of the club. They have shown much enthusiasm by collecting the materials and components allotted for their project on time and responding good to the convener’s call.
The projects are suggested by the coordinators and few teams chose their own interested topic. The members meet every Tuesday. Apart from this, industrial visits and other club events are also scheduled and organized. They are taught to present their work orally and also to write a report. Ultimately the members would have developed a working electronic circuit for different application which gives them confidence to carry out their course in higher level
