Conference on global trends in mechanical engg starts
Kharar, April 17,2010
The two days national conference on global trends in mechanical engineering (GTME) 2010 started at Rayat-Bahra Institute if Engineering and Biotechnology (RBIEBT) here today.
A venture of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, RBIEBT Kharar the speakers at conference poured thoughts in an array of mechanical engineering related subjects.
Dr. Buta Singh, Dean Academics, Punjab Technical University, Jalandhar was the chief guest at the occasion. While addressing the students, he guided young generation on issues like entrepreneurship, self employment, emerging technologies in mechanical engineering etc. He also talked about the importance of novelty in research by young researchers.
Motivating the students he said, “Every field of mechanics requires research. Rather than merely taking up jobs, engineering students can turn up as entrepreneurs and give jobs to others.”
S. Gurvinder Singh, Chairman Bahra Group of Institutes told the students about job prospects and future trends in mechanical engineering. He gave instances from the day-to-day life highlighting importance of mechanical engineering.
Dr. Gurdip Singh, Director-Principal Rayat-Bahra Institute of Engineering and Bio Technology and Dr. Vijay Kumar Jadon, Professor & Head (ME) chaired the events and discussed importance of this national conference for academia-industry interaction. Various dignitaries from reputed universities / colleges in the region too were present at the occasion.
Issues of artificial intelligence and applications, computational fluid dynamics, bio mechanics & materials, nano materials and Manufacturing, CAD/ CAM/ CIM/ FEM, automation and robotics, composites/ ceramics/ polymers, instrumentation/ MEMS, fuzzy logics/ neural network/ artificial intelligence, surface finishing/ hardness (burnishing), foundry/ casting/ welding/ corrosion, advanced manufacturing, advanced mechanical design, simulation modeling mechanical systems, industrial engineering, internal combustion engines, heat and mass transfer, bio mass (energy), refrigeration and air conditioning, turbo machines, energy conservation, NCSE and energy audit, cryogenics and automobile engineering formed integral part of technical papers presented.
