Engineering is incredible. Here are a few miraculous examples to prove that engineering is more than just a career option.

Let’s agree to the fact that in India, we have a situation with ‘engineering’. It could either be a “Boon or bane” which means, it could turn out to be beneficial or harmful (in some cases).

It’s all good when you get the benefits out of something, in which you’ve had spent a lot of your time! But what’s not going right with those who can’t make situations any better.

There is an issue in projection of this profession!

When we normally talk about engineering, we prioritize the need to have a decent job. Which is not wrong really, but it is when your only aim is to be a certified candidate to of an esteemed organization.

Where is the creativity?

The creativity gets left out when your behavior is too predictable and structured. Think of someone great like Charles Babbage for instance. Babbage developed plans for the analytical engine, the forerunner of the modern digital computer. What do you think he was thinking before providing the scientific, engineering and mathematical advancements to the world? Certainly not desperate to work for someone else!

Here are some examples of mesmerizing inventors who dug deep into science and engineering and discovered millions of magnificent ways to help the world.

George Stephenson

Known as the ‘Father of Railways’, George built the first public intercity railway line in the world. He was an English civil and mechanical engineer who invented the rail gauge, which is now the standard gauge for most countries.

James Watt

A Scottish inventor, mechanical engineer, and chemist who improved on Thomas Newcomen's 1712 Newcomen steam engine with his Watt steam engine in 1776, which was fundamental to the changes brought by the Industrial Revolution in both his native Great Britain and the rest of the world.

Nikola Tesla

He is known for his contribution to the design of the modern alternating current electricity supply system. Was a Serbian-American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist with a futuristic vision! While the engineers today seek admission on JEE Main rank, Tesla worked on real-life projects like the radio, X-ray machines and induction motors. Truly one of a kind. Now let's talk about his controversial mate...

Thomas Edison

Edison has also invented a number of other things like the motion picture camera, stock ticker, and battery for the electric car, a mechanical vote recorder and the phonograph. He is Primarily known for inventing the light bulb. He was also among the first ones to practice mass production for his inventions, manufacturing on a large scale. He has around 1093 US patents on his name and many more outside the US. He was an excellent engineer.

Amar Gopal Bose

An electrical engineer and sound engineer, he was a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for over 45 years. He was also the founder and chairman of Bose Corporation. In 2011, he donated a majority of the company to MIT in the form of non-voting shares to sustain and advance MIT's education and research mission.

George Stephenson

Rightly called the ‘Father of Railways’. George built the first public intercity railway line in the world. He was an English civil and mechanical engineer who invented the rail gauge, which is now the standard gauge for most countries.

These are some examples of monumental engineering, and there are literally too many to name a few. Our only intention is to get the true importance of engineering before you.

But, before you get any wrong ideas, we want to make it clear that you should only say yes to a job where your responsibilities will help the establishment to reach its mission while you keep developing your own personally as well!

We help our future aspirants to be the forthcoming technocrats. We do care for your well-being and want you to be satisfied with your choice of academics.

The habit of procrastination among students and how to overcome it

Imagine this scenario -
You dutifully make your to-do-list and create what you think is a reasonable schedule and timetable to finish up your project or a task. The next day comes and you sit at your computer, look at your list, and then for reasons you can’t even explain, open up Facebook and lose hours reading the same inconsequential news feed over and over again. Your timetable is blown up and you move on to something else, something more pressing or something just as inane.

Sounds familiar?
We thought so!

Have you ever wondered why you – or others – procrastinate?

While some view it as laziness, there might be other factors at play. In psychology, it has been long been believed that people who procrastinate have a faulty sense of time, that they think they will have more time to get something done than they actually do. Specifically, it seems that task aversion is to blame i.e. when people view a task in an unpleasant manner (tough, boring, or painful), they are more likely to put it off.
Sometimes people procrastinate because other options for how to spend their time are too tempting to pass up, or they think they can work better under pressure. People convince themselves that they’re waiting until crunch time because the product will be better. Other times, they procrastinate because they don’t know how to begin.

Image result for procrastination among students

If you are struggling with putting things off, try these tips which might help get you on track: 

1. Put it in writing

Write down the tasks you’ve been avoiding. This will bring the project to the front of your mind so you can’t easily ignore it.

2. Neutralize negative thinking

When you think of this task, what negative thought pops into your head? Find an antidote to that thought in the form of a truth that contradicts it. Instead of thinking “I’ll never be able to learn all this,” you might say to yourself, “I can do this”.

3. Break it into parts

When a task seems overbearing, procrastination often follows. So how can you break that task into smaller, more manageable parts? Chunking it down will help you feel less overwhelmed and more empowered.

4. Stop giving excuses

Do any of these sound familiar? “I need to be in the mood.”, “I will wait until I have time.”, “I work better under pressure.” Be honest with yourself, these are excuses which will never allow you to start your work. Stop giving them and start working

5. Enjoy the victory

Finishing a daunting task is satisfying. Remind yourself that you’ll feel incredibly virtuous when the chore is off your plate once and for all. Accomplishing what you’re avoiding will simplify your work life. You’ll feel more energetic. You’ll sleep better at night. Relish the feeling of success.

Stop waiting for “someday”. Start working on your tasks today and finish it off with a lot of time in your hand before the deadline. Follow these steps to get started on your project, and be proud of every bit of progress you make!

Virtual and Augmented Reality - A New Digital Vision

Ivan Sutherland, the creator of one of the world’s first virtual reality systems in 1960 stated that “The ultimate display would, of course, be a room within which the computer can control the existence of matter. A chair displayed in such a room would be good enough to sit in. Handcuffs displayed in such a room would be confining, and a bullet displayed in such a room would be fatal.”

We may haven’t come anywhere near Ivan Sutherland’s vision yet, and perhaps we don’t want to. But therecertainly are engaging virtual and augmented realities today.

VR makes it possible for users to immerse themselves in constructed surroundings that depict the actual places or imaginary worlds. AR overlays contextual information on the immediate physical environment users see before their eyes, thus blending digital components and experiences with real life.

What are benefits for us?

  1. Computer vision allows devices to extract information from real time images and the surrounding area. This, linked with GPS systems can help a device recognize your location, giving traffic directions, alternative routes, and even identifying hazards. It could even tell your car to activate the brakes, if it recognizes a motorbike indicator or a hand signal from a cyclist that you missed.
  2. Designing for AR and VR requires new enabling tools and services. High-definition 3D image capture and mapping equipment are emerging, accelerating developer’s abilities to recreate real world physical environments within new AR and VR tools. 
  3. Consumer-tech aside, within engineering, design and architectural companies, the power of these smart glasses is virtually endless. Through the use of digital eyeware, a wealth of information can be stored and linked to physical products in the building. When you look at a water pump, for example, the last service information and audit could pop up over the product, which can then be linked to the service manual and even a step-by-step guide to show how to dismantle and repair the elements.

So, what does the future hold for AR and VR in Engineering?

AR can allow an engineer or designer to design a product right in the environment it will go in, allowing them to be aware of space restrictions or other obstacles.

Ability to visualize a design that originates on the computer screen, as it is meant to appear in the real world, visual recognition and monitoring of various components, bug identification through comparison with known-working systems are just some of the way in which AR and VR could be useful. Could being the operative word, as is often the case with pushing the envelope of innovation, the true benefits are often not realized until the adoption curve has matured.

Engineering Day Celebrations – 15th September

The Engineering Community across India celebrates Engineer’s Day on 15 September every year as a tribute to the greatest Engineer Bharat Ratna Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya.
Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya, born on September 15, 1861, in Muddenahalli near Chikkaballapur. He went on to become India’s most prolific civil engineer, dam builder, economist, stateman, and can be counted among the last century’s foremost nation-builders.

At AVCOE, we celebrate Engineer’s Day as an appreciation of the engineering profession and in the memory of India’s eminent engineer, scholar and stateman Mokshagundam Visvesvaraya.

Here are some ideas for Engineer’s Day Celebrations:

Image result for engineers day

1. Field visits to historic engineering marvels
We have a great architectural and engineering heritage. There are quite a few expertly engineered monuments or buildings in India. This engineer’s day, you can take a trip to some of these design marvels. Some of the spectacular projects are Golden Globe in Auroville, Bandra-Worli Sea link, I-flex Solutions in Bangalore.

2. Organize a debate or quiz related to latest developments in engineering field
Boost your knowledge about the developments in technology and engineering field. Arrange a quiz on topics related to the same, or you can even conduct a debate on pros and cons of developing technology, or similar topics. 

3. Educate others
This Engineer’s Day, unite for a social cause. Visit a government or tribal schools and teach the kids there, simple yet interesting engineering concepts. You can also carry some interesting projects and demonstrate the working of the project to the kids.

4. Organize paper presentation or conferences in college
Communication and writing skills are important for an engineer, along with technical knowledge. Paper presentation competition enables students to carry out extensive research, analyze documents and write their own papers. Also presenting the paper involves seminar and communication with an audience. This boosts their communication skills as well as confidence. 

5. Conduct an Alumni Meet
An Alumni meet will facilitate exchange if ideas and advices between the current and the previous batch. It will bring back college memories for the pass-out students, and will be a mentoring session for the current students at the same time. and of course, a fun-filled afternoon with time well spent. 

AVCOE wishes all the students and all the Engineers a very Happy Engineer’s Day. We wish you success and glory all the way.

7 Daily Habits that will make you a better Engineer

Engineers are responsible for many of the great inventions and technology the world depends on. Everything from space shuttles to air conditioning systems to hearing aids requires the work of an engineer. We listed the top habits required to be a successful engineer.

Here are some of habits that happy, successful engineers practice:

Image result for engineer habits

1.  Cherish learning in success or failure.
Failures are not a surprise for engineers. What makes you stand out from others is the way you deal with it. Successful engineers see failure as an opportunity to try something new, to perform better.

2.  Don’t compare yourself to others.
Be your best at what you do and keep consistently being the best. The only one you should compare yourself is to who you are today and how can you better yourself for the future.

3.  Embrace different perspectives to solve a problem.
All engineers know this that there are hundreds of solutions and hundreds of approaches to a certain problem. When you can’t seem to reach a solution with one point of view, try perceiving the problem in another way. If you are working in a team take inputs from everyone, put different perspectives to work and solve the problem.

4.  Exercise- A must.
Along with your brain, your body needs its dosage of maintenance too. Remember without a healthy body one cannot be efficient in his/her work. Take some time out and make it a point to exercise on a daily basis.

5.  Avoid procrastination.
Avoiding procrastination is today’s world is a rather challenging thing to do. With social media becoming an ‘important’ part and parcel of our lives, it is convenient enough to put off our work to next day, and the next and it goes on. Agreed we need our share social lives but don’t waste most of your time browsing such apps. Prioritize your work which will give you time for work, study as well as fun.

6.  Read books.
Reading books allows you to learn new information you can relate or connect with your current skills and solve problems more efficiently than someone who is not reading books at all. Be it fiction or non-fiction, the former broadens your imagination and the latter gives you access to facts and mantras regarding your field.

7.  Be confident that you will make it. 
Four years of engineering is certainly not easy. Often you go through phases of self-doubt and fear and series of what-ifs about uncertainty of your future. Take a breath. Relax. Keep giving your 100% and things will work out for you just as fine. Always have confidence in yourself and your abilities to make it.

Becoming successful in any engineering field, or in life as an engineer takes a lot of hard work and determination. Be confident, set your goals and strongly work towards them, and the most important thing – never stop learning!
