Industrial Visits

Industrial Visit During the Academic Year 2018-19

Wind Mill Farm Sinnar

As a part of first year curriculum industrial visit of first year students was arranged on 12/4/2019.We visited Wind Mill farm of Suzlon energy private ltd at Sinnar.Students enthusiastically participated in visit.We reached the destination after a journey of one and half hours.An engineer of the plant explained technical parameters of wind mill.He elaborated on its operation method,construction and requirements of particular wind speed.Students were listening interestingly and asked variety of technical questions.All student in a group of 5 to 6 got up in wind mill panel and understood the operation practically.In this visit Prof.N.D.Kulkarni,Prof S.V.Dharane and Prof Mrs S.V.Vachhani accompanied the students.

Industrial Visit During the Academic Year 2017-18

Hydro Power Station Karanjvan

The knowledge is not confined to the books only. One has to learn practically. As a part of the syllabus students has to visit any plant for understanding practically. A industrial visit to Hydro Power station near nashik was arranged. A section engineer at station explained the production of electricity technically. Students were satisfied by getting experience of practical learning. They ask number of questions to engineer. Prof. N. D. Kulkarni, Prof Y.M. Ahire, Prof S. V. Vachhani and Prof S. V. Dharane accompanied with the students.
