1) RC Aircraft Design, Fabrication and Flying

The RC Aircraft Design, Fabrication and Flying is an aeromodelling workshop that helps participants learn about the dynamics and design of an airplane. This workshop on aeromodelling would introduce the participants to the four pillars of Aerospace Engineering - Aerodynamics, Flight Mechanics, Aircraft Propulsion and Structures, with stress on the first two topics. It makes you innovate by coming up with your own design of mini aircrafts and fabricating them as per your design. Aeromodelling is a very interesting and fun manner to learn the complex theory behind aircrafts. In this workshop, basics of electronics relevant to RC aeromodelling(radio controls, servo motors) and i.c engine/electric motor would also be covered. This workshop takes you through a series of interactive lectures and design sessions supplemented by practical sessions, thereby providing a complete learning experience.

2) Automobile Design

"The Indian automotive industry has emerged as a sunrise sector in the Indian economy" - Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), Ministry of Commerce. April 2013
With the automotive industry growing multifold every year, it is never a bad thought to think about securing a position in it. The automotive industry requires people having the knowledge of design and functioning of various parts of the automobile. The workshop provides the participants with the idea of what to look for when carrying out a design exercise of the automobile components and how to integrate them making it suitable for industry needs. Participants will unto dismantle and undergo a practical session on how to dismantle and assemble a life size automobile engine, to help them have a first hand experience of the intricate engine parts.
