Labs and Industry Centres of Excellence

BMU is focused on creating an immersive teaching-learning experience for its students, one that combines the best of campus-based learning with real life industry experience. This is best done by working hand-in-glove with industry, since industry’s goal is to get job-ready graduates and our goal is to graduate students who are industry-ready and employable. We have thus created and implemented a hands-on curriculum, one in which industry is embedded right from the get-go.

“Industry has participated and advised at every stage of the BMU curriculum design and development programme. The profile of a BMU student — hands-on, holistic, ethics-based and confident of their life skills — was arrived at in consultative collaboration with industry, since they would be the primary recruiters of talent graduating from universities. A critical component of the hands-on, problem-solving approach would come from interning in industry as would much of the confidence gained through the development of skills such as communication and conflict resolution.”

Our linkages with industry include:

• Visiting faculty and guest speakers from industry
• Professional development of industry personnel
• Short site visits for our students
• Structured learning opportunities at industry locations (e.g., internship opportunities of one semester duration for which students are graded)
• Joint curriculum design and development
• Senior industry experts to participate in faculty selection and recruitment.
• Donation of obsolete equipment in working condition. This is being housed in the 40,000 sq. /ft ‘Workshop of the Future’ on our campus

In some cases, industry is also looking to establish ‘Centres of Excellence’ on our campus to provide students and faculty with the opportunity to work on real-life projects and cutting-edge technology. An example is the Centre of Excellence in Manufacturing Automation that is being established at the campus by Siemens.

BML Munjal University has adapted, extended and implemented the tried and tested Practice School model. The salient features of BMU’s Practice School include:

• Institutionalised linkage between University and Industry
• Internships and industry visits organised by BMU, rather than by individual students
• Applicable to all degree programs
• The three Practice School internships are courses that have credit units and are contribute to the Grade Point Average
• Total duration of Practice School for B.Tech. students is 31-32 weeks, comprising three Practice School courses of 1 week, 8 weeks and 22 weeks respectively
• Student involvement in real-life projects.
• Continuous internal evaluation system.
• Monitoring and evaluation by resident faculty member.
• Industry gets “industry-ready” students, particularly during their 22 week Practice School-3 course in the final year.

As a result, industry is thus assured of a regular availability of fresh, young, energetic minds, who have the technical knowledge, practical capabilities, and soft skills required to make an impact in the workplace.

Basic Electrical and Electronics Lab

The basic electrical and electronics laboratory is intended to serve as one of the teaching labs and to facilitate teaching and research projects. The major goal of this laboratory is to familiarise first year students with various instruments and techniques for making electrical and electronics measurements. Once they’ve developed some competence in the use of these tools, students begin learning how to measure voltage, current, and resistance using various instruments. By the end of their lab coursework, students should be able to design, assemble, and use basic electronic circuits and have the skills necessary to measure and characterise their designs. The lab caters to the requirements of students from all B.Tech. streams.

Facilities

Chemistry Lab

Our chemistry lab provides students an opportunity to learn and create chemistry of tomorrow. The lab concentrates on the development of practical and hands-on-learning skill of undergraduate students. The chemistry lab ensures that the students work in an efficient, modern and safe environment.

Faculty In-charge: Dr. Tapas Goswami, Dr.Sanmitra Barman
Technical Staff: Mrs. Jyoti Yadav, Mr. Kishan Pal Singh

 

Fundamentals of Computing Lab

This lab is equipped with state-of–the-art computer systems and deals with a set of topics that are required for understanding of the basics of different operations associated with computing systems. It provides exposure to computer systems, their components, the underlying principles on which these systems work, their applications and related technologies.

It is very essential for engineering students to have logical, analytical and reasoning skills. This lab aims at teaching the students the process of developing computing systems using abstractions, solving complex problems by dividing them in to simple sub problems and transforming logical flowcharts into algorithms and further to a language that a computer can understand. This lab provides students with hands-on experience through a three-pronged approach namely “How Stuff Works”, “Learn It Yourself” and “Do It Yourself”.

Faculty In-charge: Prof. Goldie Gabrani
Academic Fellow: Mr. Viomesh Singh and Neha Saini
Technical Staff: Mr. Sumit Kumar

 

Physics Lab

Every first year student of the B.Tech. programme has to perform at least ten experiments in the physics lab in each semester. First semester experiments are on Mechanics and Optics and second semester experiments are on Electricity and Magnetism. In the physics lab students learn how to use the instruments containing double scales viz. main scale and Vernier scale. Students also understand what type of instrument can be used for a specific measurement. In the physics lab, emphasis will also be on every student to design an experiment for any measurement they have studied in theory.

Workshop of the Future

The goal of the Workshop of the Future at BMU is to provide state-of-the-art facilities for teaching, training and development, through which students can get a hands-on industry like immersive teaching-learning experience. The impetus is to create an environment that fosters creative exploration of ideas and first-hand experience of manufacturing practices. The Workshop of the Future is planned with wide range of facilities aimed towards introducing students to the different stages of a product development life cycle, which includes different stages right from “Conceiving an idea” to the “Final production” of the component.
