Faridabad Hindustan ab tak/Dinesh Bhardwaj : 20 January J.C. Bose University of Science and Technology, YMCA, Faridabad would soon develop an advanced laboratory on 3D Printing Technology to enable the students to have experiential learning in 3D modeling, build-setup preparation and applications of 3D printing.
This was disclosed by Vice Chancellor Prof. Dinesh Kumar while addressing the inaugural session of five-day workshop on ‘3D Printing and Design’ organized by the Department of Mechanical Engineering in association with AICTE Training and Learning (ATAL) Academy. Prof. P.M. Pandey from IIT Delhi was Chief Guest and keynote speaker on this occasion. Mr. YMCA Alumnus Raj Bhatia, Chairman and Managing Director of Bony Polymers Pvt. Ltd was present as guest of honour on this occasion. The session was also attended by all deans and chairpersons of various departments.
Vice Chancellor said that nowadays, 3D printers are being used in a wide range of fields including medical to high-end engineering industries. Therefore, the technology holds potential not only for engineering students, but also for those are in other fields. 3D printing technology helps in evaluating the ideas, and can design quickly whatever students visualize through practice. Hence, improves the creativity and innovation, he added. He appreciated the initiative taken by department to conduct workshop on 3D printing which is a vigorously emerging technology and asked the students to learn the industrial and real life applications of 3D printing.
In his address, Prof. P.M. Pandey highlighted the usage of 3D printing in different fields and asked the students to not to be restricted with their ideas but also try to convert into reality.
Mr. Raj Bhatia apprised the participants about the usage of 3D printing technology in mechanical industry and said that since the technology is emerging vary fast, the students of mechanical engineering should not remain limited to mechanical engineering but also to learn new advance technologies of interdisciplinary field.
Earlier, Prof. Tilak Raj, Chairperson of Mechanical Engineering, welcomed the participants and gave a brief introduction on the program. Workshop coordinator Dr. Sanjeev Kumar proposed the vote of thanks. The session was also coordinated by Dr. Rajeev Saha.
