Project Based Learning started with the goal to help PHCET engineering students develop the skills, tools and character they will need as future leaders in the world of engineering practice. Project-Based Learning (PBL) lies at the heart of the engineering program, as the key mechanism for students to develop and reflect on their individual engineering leadership skills. Project-Based Learning (PBL) is considered an alternative to the teacher led classroom model. In fact, this will integrate theory and practice. The benefits are plenty including improved designing of circuits skill, understanding concepts, people and processes in an organisation. The core idea of PBL is that real-world problems capture students’ interest and provoke serious thinking, as the students acquire and apply new knowledge in a problem-solving context.
Pillai HOC College of Engineering & Technology, Department of Electrical Engineering organised PBL on 29th September, 2018. In that event S.E., T.E. students were displayed their projects. Various projects from different domain have been allocated to the students by their respective faculty. The necessary equipments and components provided by the college freely to the students to complete their projects. Evolution done by the pool of faculty team as per the given criteria.
- Presentation of Concept Design
- Whether work evenly distributed among members?
- Level of Difficulty of design
Criteria 2: Concept / Simulation / Theoretical Modelling
Criteria 3: Comparison between Predicted (P) and Actual Measured (A)
Criteria 4: Product / Build Quality
Criteria 5: Novel Features and other Remarks
The following topics were given for PBL
|T.E. Electrical||S.E. Electrical
