A 5 day training on IoT at ACE Engineering College

 

Collab House has always promoted technical, scientific and artistic skills through projects, collaboration and education including but not limited to encouraging research, knowledge exchange, learning and mentoring with each other and the community at large. Learning activities include understanding maker culture,Internet of Things (IoT), design thinking, prototyping and building things.We believe that the convergence of Internet, Hardware, and Computing will change the course of our personal and professional lives. Having these set of Skills are important for 21st century to build a generation of informed creators.

At Collab House we combine tools, community, and education for the purposes of enabling members to learn, design, prototype and create. The aim is to foster innovative thinking among the youth so they develop the skills to solve the real world problems with a scientific approach.

JNTU Excite 2015 is a boot camp initiative by JNTU, HYSEA & TASK in association with Collab House to bring faculty, students and industry mentors on a collaborative platform for learning and product prototyping. In order to discover, nurture and refine tech product ideas from engineering students in a collaborative manner, the organisations have planned to implement a pilot of JNTU Excite as a content packed workshop. This has created excitement among budding engineers to play around and open up with ideas, products and product entrepreneurship.

An Overview of JNTU Excite program.

  • Based on the industry 2-year-projections survey, it is essential for engineering students to focus on latest advancements in hardware as well as software. The specific courses are now being discussed and will soon be defined for addition to the curriculum. While focusing on an active industry participation, faculty development and continuous-assessment of students performance is assessed through TASK. The courses having a strong practical content are delivered in the form of a workshop.
  • A summer workshop for Product engineering has been proposed, to be initiated immediately as a pilot project. The summer workshop will be considered as equivalent to the 2-credit ‘Industry oriented mini-project’ .
  • This will soon be part of the JNTU curriculum as a summer course to be continued as the final year project. Immediate objective is to build practical understanding of product engineering among the engineering students. With a secondary objective of seeding new startups through products proposed and prototyped in the workshop.
  • The workshop proposal has two parts:
    • Faculty Development (product engineering, contemporary technologies like Mobile/cloud, and IoT)
    • Actual summer workshop for students ending with a product prototyping.
  • Faculty development will be taken up through three short workshops by the industry from March to May. The same faculty will be at the summer workshop as mentors to the student teams at the workshop; and will also experience the product engineering workshop closely.

Collab House team mentored at the bootcamp having participation from 25 colleges, 50 faculty and 225 students. Cheers to Prasanna Dutt and team for leading on behalf of Collab House!

We are proud to share that Two of the winning teams are mentored by Collab House team!

Considering the opportunity to make engineering students updated with current trends in technology and entrepreneurship, Collab House in collaboration with Telangana Academy for Skill and Knowledge (TASK), Hyderabad Software Enterprises Association (HYSEA), Educational Institutions and Implementation partners Uptec Idealabs Ltd.and Innovators of India(IoI) have initiated IoT – Makerspace program in Telangana State. We invited participation from colleges for setting up Maker Space on campus.

Maker Space has been conceived with a vision to foster an active collaboration between the Academia, Students and Industry – open all vistas of learning, imbibe a culture of exploring, probing and experimenting and effectively transform the student force into an Industry ready engineering workforce, thought leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs.

Maker Space shall help in facilitate industry participation and build confidence amongst students to collaborate with Industry to build innovative solutions, participate in internships and placements,  an opportunity to be part of the Innovation /entrepreneurship ecosystem which has been limited to very few premiere colleges in India. It will also help in improving skill development and increasing the quality and quantum of placements. The initiative is being supported by a wide consortium of Industry, Academia and Government.

 

The colleges who participated in JNTU-EXCITE 2015 are being the first preference for this registration to set up their on campus maker spaces.

As the first phase of the programme, Collab House has organised a one week workshop at ACE Engineering college starting form 24th February 2016 and lasting till 1st March 2016. With the prime focus on IoT and electronics, the schedule was filled with content relevant to the latest maker technologies. Prasan Dutt Raju and Shakthi Priyan being the trainers for the curriculum, it was a week of maker fiesta for students from computers and Electronics background.

A 5 day training on IoT at ACE Engineering College

Doodle workshop by Tejo Guna

Tejo Guna is an Architecture student turned professional Doodler, Co-founder of ‘Weird Beard’. His startup functions in the domain of Art and apparel. We have him in house for a workshop on professional doodling, to teach basics and then the to give a creative touch to the art of the attendees. The event started off with a set of focussed questions like:

What is a Doodle?

How to Doodle?

What do you need to Doodle?

The session was interactive with energetic and enthusiastic crowd. The overwhelming crowd was mostly working professionals with art as their hobby or a part-time passion.

The crowd started drawing different doodles, crafted and compacted in to a piece of paper making the atmosphere more and more creative. You could actually feel the essence of creativity when you move around the tables. Each person deeply engaged to put up a Doodle filled with art and emotion. And Tejo moving around and giving his inputs to make their doodle look more professional and catchy.

It is a feast to one’s eyes if they were at Collab House. We had a diverse age group of attendees ranging from kids to experienced professionals enthusiastic to learn about this special art ‘Doodling’.

The workshop concluded with amazing doodles on every visible sheet. Fruitful session with overwhelming responses ended with a light snack and a Group picture. A day well spent with artists and creative geniuses.

Collab House is very happy and excited to house such kind of an event and would promise to deliver many events and workshops of this kind to peers of Hyderabad.

It was a bright atmosphere at Collab House with little creatures wandering all around with crazy set of doubts and superb enthusiasm.

Ultimately the kids has got an immense knowledge with practical experience by working on various electronic devices and 3D printers. The cute robots and 3D prints made by them are memories left by them at Collab House.

What? ‘Maker Camp’ for children by Maker Club

Why?  To Educate children on present technology trends

When? 30 & 31 May 2015

Maker Camp

Hyderabad Web Technologies

The motto of the event is to teach the basics of programming on various platforms. It is not to make the attendees proficient in a language but making them self reliant on learning the languages independently.

The attendees were informed to bring their laptops for the hands on programming session.

Agenda of the day –

Understanding how the web works, understanding and exploring HTML5/CSS3 (one hour). This 1 hour gives you the skeleton of a webpage. It shows how the text and color of a webpage or website can be programmed.

Understanding JavaScript, solving easy programming challenges in JavaScript, Intro to Node.js (one hour). This session gives you the complete picture of the functionality of a website.

Q & A (30 mins), This cleared out doubts of the attendees to make them more clear about the concepts and enables them to dive deep.

Exploring Web Tools, Introduction to Git and GitHub (30 mins). Exploring github helps out a programmer in multiple ways.

Building personal portfolio website (Practice Session). A personal website or a blog is a tool to market oneself. Updating your blog timely is important in order to keep up with your peer group.

Post-session Q&A, future learning resources etc.

It was a fruitful session with wonderful outcome. Every attendee was more than satisfied with the knowledge that they have gained by being part of the workshop.
