A batch of 50 talented students was taken on a 3 day educational tour cum industrial visit to DRDO ,Dehradun from 6th April to 9th April.The team was led by Prof.Himanshu Agarhari,Prof.Vishal Kanchan and Prof.Hitesh Kumar.
The trip included visit to 2 major places-Defence Electronics Application Laboratory(DEAL),Dehradun and Instruments Research and Development Establishment(IRDE),Dehradun.
DEAL aims at the development of software based Radios,Anti-Jam Data links and secure satcoms systems.Here the major area of focus for the students was "Image Processing".They were guided to the image processing section where they were explained that how the images from satellite are downloaded,processed and delivered to the clients.The team then visited the quality control section and the NC section where they were taught about different NC and CNC machines.
The second phase was the visit to IRDE,where 3 major sections were shown-The Laser Optical Section,Thermal Imaging Section and the NC Lab.
Students were highly amused to see the "Long Range" and "Short Range" thermal imaging cameras which were demonstrated ,something which intrigued almost every passionate engineer.
The college aims to help the students in broadening their knowledge spectrum and also make them inquisitive towards defence technology.
The team thanked the Principal,Dr.Ram Rattan for providing this once in a lifetime opportunity.
