DYNAMECH Department Club Activity on “DESIGN-EX”


DYNAMECH Department Club Activity on ‘DESIGN-EX’ was successfully conducted, in association with ISTE, IIC and IQAC – MVJCE, on 10th November, 2021, from 10.00 am to 04.00 pm. This DYNAMECH Club Activity was designed to impress upon students, the importance of engineering design for Mechanical Engineers. Overall, 39 Students participated in the initial qualifying round, and out of these, 12 students qualified for the final round.

Invitation of the Event

Dr. Rajesh Kumar P from the Mechanical Engineering department, highlighted the importance of design for Mechanical Engineers, especially for shaping their careers in a fruitful way. He invited Principal Dr. P Mahabaleswarappa to address the gathering. The Principal impressed upon the students how the event was of importance to them, and shared some success stories to motivate the students to upskill themselves, so that they can enjoy a rewarding career.

The competition started with Dr. Santhosh N, Associate Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering, giving an overview of the rules and regulations to be followed for the event. The Club activity, DESIGN-EX, comprised of two major stages. In the first stage, flagged off by the Principal at 10.30 am, the participants were asked to do the design calculations for an industrial component and model it using the Solid Edge Software in the CAED Lab, Room No. 24. 39 students participated in the forenoon event which went on from 10.30 am to 01.00 pm, and 12 of them qualified for the final round. The selection was based on the accuracy of calculations, presentation and modelling.

The second stage started at 01.40 pm with the briefing of the rules and regulations for the final round, by the event coordinator. The participants were given a pump casing to design and model in the Solid Edge 3D software in the CAED Lab. The time given for the design and modelling was 90 minutes and the participants were evaluated by the panel of judges comprising of teaching faculty Dr. Sunil Shankar Waddar, Dr. Shankar G, Dr. Rajesh Kumar P, Dr. Santhosh N from the department, and Harish R, Lab Instructor, and in charge of CAED Lab. The criteria for judging were design, presentation and time. This was followed by a feedback session, where a student Thilak Krishna from 5th semester A-section shared his valuable suggestions for future events.
