This initiative is to provide opportunities for students to get involved in coming up with technology solutions for societal problems. The students shall visit villages or rural sites during the vacations (after 4th semester or sixth semester) and if they identify a worthwhile project, they shall register for a 3-credit Live-in-Lab project, in the fifth or seventh semester. The objectives and projected outcome of the project should be reviewed and approved by the Dept. chairperson and a faculty assigned as the project guide. On completion of the project, the student shall submit a detailed project report. The report shall be evaluated and the students shall appear for a viva-voce test on the project.
