OPEN LAB / LIVE-IN LAB

The live-in lab is an opportunity for the students to carryout independent research culminated to a practical setup or demonstration of a conceived idea.

Objectives

  • To introduce an opportunity for the students to carryout independent research culminated to a practical setup or demonstration of a conceived idea.
  • It enables the students to Horner their technical potential to design, develop and realize a system based on the theoretical courses covered.
  • To engage and utilize the existing facilities / tools in full form in order to extract its full potentials.
  • To design, develop and realize new experiments for the program, including practical manuals.
  • To enable the students to try for out of the box thinking and realizing in their respective domains.
  • To introduce and implement new experiments or realizing new solutions for the existing problems.
  • To enable the students to provide technical solutions for real world problems and develop proto-type systems through Live-In labs.
  • To enable develop hardware/software interfaces in their respective domain.
  • Enable the students’ potentials to realize a proto-type system
