IIT Bhilai, with the mission of providing a conducive environment for technological and cultural studies in the state of Chhattisgarh is organizing several short term development/training programs for students, staffs and faculty members of various engineering colleges in Chhattisgarh, funded by the TEQIP-III cell, CSVTU. As a part of this series of short term programs, the Department of Mechanical Engineering, IIT Bhilai organized two Students Training Programs (STPs): one on 3D-Printing Technologies and the other on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), from 11th to12th November, 2019. The STPs were formally inaugurated by Dr. Soumya Gangopadhyay, Head of Mechanical Engineering Department. A large number of students from various engineering colleges affiliated to CSVTU participated in these STPs with huge enthusiasm.
Dr. Vijay Duryodhan, chief coordinator of the STP on CFD reinstated that the objective of these STPs is to train the emerging engineers of the the state of Chhattisgarh with state-of-art technologies. 3D-printing technology is the technology of this era in the manufacturing world and CFD helps the mechanical engineers to solve various hard-to-solve problems in the field of thermal and fluid sciences.
Theory sessions were taught by the faculty members of IIT Bhilai who experts in the relevant field of technology. Dr. Jose Immanuel was the chief coordinator of the STP on 3D-printing technologies. The STPs were designed to inculcate the basic understanding of these emerging technologies into the engineering students and motivate them to adopt necessary skill sets through various theoretical and hands-on sessions.
