Students Activities in Mechanical Engineering
LAKSHYA, Sanskrit for goal, is the student association for the Department of Mechanical Engineering. It was inaugurated on September 1, 2005, after students sought Chancellor Amma's permission and blessings.
The Association seeks to provide students members with a strong foundation on which they can build successful careers in engineering and allied fields. Students are taught to not only seek excellence in their areas of interest, but also be willing to extend selfless assistance to society.
The Association has been a forum for students to successfully group together in order to discuss, debate and share dialogue, enabling them to create knowledge, technologies and ideas. It has motivated, inspired and encouraged students to put forth their best efforts.
Students members have participated in technical fests around the country, winning top honors for their alma mater. At the tech fest "Shaastra 2009" conducted at IIT Madras, students of mechanical engineering, Praveen R. and Aditya, won the 3rd prize in "Industry Defined Problem Solving."
At "Tathva 2009' conducted by NIT Calicut, 3rd year students Arun Prabakar, Arun Sudakar, Sreedu Krishnan, won the first prize in "Techno-Management". Their peers, Shyam Sekhar, Sambasivan A. P. and Anoop A. Pillai, won the second prize in "Steam Boat Challenge".
The Association has an executive council that takes decisions on important matters. It is guided by a fixed set of rules and regulations that assists in its smooth functioning. Contacts are established and maintained with students of mechanical engineering at other colleges.
The Association ultimately plans to implement projects that will aim to improve societal living conditions.
- Aditya K. Of 2007-2011 batch secured 4 months internship at Korea Institute of Science & Technology during May – August, 2011.
- Amrita’s Chakshuyaan, (vehicle‐with‐eyes), was adjudged the best project at TechTop 2009, a national contest for engineering students organized in Thiruvanthapuram. Over 200 teams participated from all over India, in August 2009. Amrita’s team (Shreyas Narsipur ‐Mech, Shibesh Dutta‐ECE, Vandana Vikram‐ECE, Raghu Menon‐EEE, Apoorv Singhal‐ BBM and Sashi Sekhar‐BBM) from the Amritapuri Campus won the top prize. The team carried home a cash award of Rs/. 1 lakh.
- Jeetu S. Babu, alumnus from Amritapuri Campus was selected for the 2008 Pumps India - Kirloskar Gold Medal award from among thousands of engineering graduates in the country.
