Robotics and air show held in Fatehgarh Sahib Punjab

RIMT Group of Institutions, Mandi Gobindgarh organized a workshop cum exhibition of robotics and hosted an air show for B.Tech mechanical and electrical engineering institutes in its campus.
Chairman RIMT group of institutions, Hukam Chand Bansal inaugurated the workshop and exhibition on robotics and launched aeromodelling club. While addressing students and staff he said that aeromodelling club will comprise of group of engineering students into building small models of planes and gliders which are used to explain science behind flight and forces of flight etc. He added that college will support and fund the students to develop more models and gain expertise in the field of aerodynamics. 

Guest speaker Tejinder Devgon from Sbtronics said that aeromodelling is the science of building model planes which can fly using a remote control. The model planes are designed by using all the basics of aeronautics. Flying models are usually what is meant by the term aeromodelling and it is the art of designing, building and flying miniaturized aircrafts (powered or non-powered).

During the air show, Harmandeep Cheema and Saurabh Bansal of B.Tech mechanical engineering said that "today is our happiest day in campus as with the inception of aeromodelling club in the college; our dream of developing a flyable model of aero plane will come true." 

Dr. Harsh Sadawarti Principal RIMT engineering college said that formation of 'Aeromodelling Club' is an initiative by RIMT academia to expose students to fundamentals of aerodynamics and mould students’ interests towards self development and encourage motivation towards research and development among them. The Club aims at building 6-7 model planes every year with a basic intention of introducing an innovation and uniqueness in every model it makes.

He said that at the end of an academic year the club is expected to display its models and it is expected that the performance of the institute at inter college events of aero modeling will increase and improve tremendously. 

Sahijbir Singh, Sakshi Rana and Amarveer Judge from Sbtronics also spoke on the occasion. Principal RIMT-Maharaja Agrasen Engg. College (MAEC) Dr. Pritpal Singh and Director Dr. D.S.Taneja was also present on the occasion.
