IET - INNOVATION DAY
 
 
Technologies these days are changing with fast pace and have been playing key role in our day to day life. Whether we like it or not, technology is everywhere; and in order for the students to survive in this highly competitive world, keeping abreast with the latest technologies and emerging trends in their respective domains is a necessity. It has been observed that there is a huge gap between the skills developed through the curriculum taught in the engineering colleges and the actual skills required in the industry. To bridge this gap, it is felt that, apart from gaining theoretical knowledge through course curriculum, students should get engaged in learning industrial and practical aspects of the theories learned, their real world applications, the technologies involved - both existing and emerging.

With the objective of bridging the gap between theoretical and practical understanding of engineering concepts, TIET has started initiating a knowledge sharing event every month with the name “Innovation Day”, where the students would meet and interact directly with industry experts and explore new options of collaboration.
The first “Innovation Day” event was organized by TIET on 17th March, 2018 at TIET campus, Gurugram. The event was led by a team of experts from SOLIDCAM Software India Pvt Ltd and was chaired by Mr. Pramod Kayal (Retd. GM of IGTR, Ahmedabad). Students enrolled in the B.Tech-Mechanical program from two colleges, WIT and DPGITM, participated in the event.

The key speaker of the event, Mr Anuj Bhandari (Head of SOLIDCAM-India), spoke about iMachining in SolidCAM - a new generation technology with Artificial Intelligence embedded in it. Terming it a paradigm shift in technology in manufacturing industry, he explained how the advent of this new generation technology and methodology brought transformation in the industry. In his presentation, he displayed work-flow in manufacturing process and how this technology has increased productivity. He also shared success stories of some of the industries where iMachining is implemented.
In the end, Prof. Sham Tickoo addressed the students via video conferencing from CADCIM headquarter, USA. Emphasizing on the need for incorporation of practical training in curriculum of educational institutions to make students industry-ready, he advised students to work on innovative ideas for product design right from their academic years. Concluding the event, Mr Pramod Kayal shared his experiences and advised students to learn new technologies to become employable and productive in industry from day one.
