Counseling Report

“ENGINEERING DARPAN 17” an exhibition was organized on 15th and 16th April 2017 by VVP Engineering college, Rajkot. The venue for this exhibition was at Rashtriya Shala, Rajkot. The basic objective behind the exhibition was to make the common individual aware about the importance of engineering and its impact on the society. Several kind of innovative projects prepared by the students of various departments of VVP Engineering college were displayed along with their requisite posters for better understanding.

Several projects were displayed by Mechanical Engineering department of VVP Engineering College in this exhibition. Some of these projects were “Desert Cooler”, “Single Valve Internal Combustion Engine”, Contact less Gear drive system” etc. All these projects were working models prepared by the students of MED.

Along with the display of projects, senior staff members of Mechanical Engineering department counseled the visitors of this exhibition. The visitors and guests were made aware about the teaching learning pedagogy implemented at Mechanical Engineering Department. Along with, the visitors were also made aware about the importance of Mechanical Engineering as a graduate course in engineering. The aspiring students were counseled about the prospects of graduation in Mechanical Engineering. They were also made familiar with the kind of laboratories and their equipments at MED, VVPEC, which helps them a lot in gaining practical knowledge in the subjects. Other than this the senior faculties also explained about the other pros like calling of expert faculties from industry and academia for further insight in the subjects, a dedicated industry institute interaction cell engaged for arranging summer internships for the students. A placement cell which organizes campus interviews by the elite private companies and further arranges job fair for all the eligible students.

The visitors were several in numbers and it was a great experience for them as well the aspiring students. They thoroughly enjoyed the display of innovative projects and their understanding and also were confident about the engineering graduation after counseling from our senior faculty members team comprising of Dr. D.D. Kundaliya, Dr. N.P. Maniar, Prof. M.C. Karia, Prof. G.P. Kakkad, Prof. A.D. Saparia and Prof. J.P. Joshi. Other faculty members of the department assisted in explaining the projects to the visitors. The entire coordination of the exhibition was done by respected HOD Dr. Jignasa Mehta and Prof. R.V. Ramani. The logistics were taken care by Prof. Hardik Khunt and Prof. Pooja Ghodasara. The video and presentation for the department was prepared by Prof. Nirav Meghpara and Prof. Jiten Makadia.

The department is highly thankful to the management and individuals (teaching and semi teaching staff members) of VVP Engineering college associated directly or indirectly in arranging this exhibition
