Wangdu Club

This idea of ‘Wangdu Club’ is initiated by PHCET way back in 2012. We look at this as a realization of a Phunsuk Wangdu – a character from the hindi film “Three Idiots”. The thought behind this club is to bring all ignited minds together. To give a nurturing environment to budding mind of students, that are full of imaginations and ideas. Wangdu Club is an effort to turn Imagination into Innovation.
