Cleanliness and Anti-littering Awareness Campaign

A one day awareness campaign was organised by the Department of Civil Engineering on 27th of January, 2019 at Sekmai, Manipur funded by the Technical Education Quality Improvement Program Phase III (TEQIP-III). The department faculties and the first year students of the university participated in the campaign. The awareness creation and action components taken up under this will contribute in achieving a clean and green environment.

About the Event

Topics ranging from solid waste management and pollution were covered in the campaign. Learning only inside the classroom is not sufficient, a proper field visit is also required for proper environmental education. In view of the environmental problems due to improper solid waste management, the activities of the campaign focused on the theme “Keep your environment clean and green”.

Event Highlight

Date: 27th January 2019
Time: 8 am to 4 pm
Venue: Sekmai River, Sekmai, Manipur

Event Coordinator

Kakchingtabam Anil Sharma
Assistant Professor
Dept. of Civil Engineering, Manipur Technical University 

Aim and Objective

The objective of the campaign was to create awareness among the students and the general public regarding the importance of the environment. 

Acknowledgement

Event Outcome

The environmental awareness campaign is really important because it is a great investment for the environment and the future. In this campaign, the aim was to search the effect of environmental education practices on students’ environmental outlook. If the numbers of environmental education practices are increased and done with more students for a longer period of time, the findings will be more comprehensive.

Two Days Workshop on Building Planning, Design and Concept of Green Building

A two days workshop on “Building Planning, Design & Concept of Green Building” was organized by the Department of Civil Engineering on 30th and 31st of January, 2019 under TEQIP-III.

The workshop mainly focuses on the basics of building planning, design & concept of green building and its application in engineering fields. Building planning includes a plan of a site and its graphic representation of the arrangement of building, parking, landscaping and any other structure that is part of a development project. 

Aim and Objective

Various designs are introduced in today’s building construction. The aesthetic view of the building depends on the idea and the design made by the designer. The well interior design of a building helps to achieve a healthier and more aesthetically pleasing environment for the people using the room. Due to the development of technology, the concept of creating a building which uses the natural resources to the minimal at the time of construction as well as the operation is essential.

Two Days Workshop on Nanotechnology

A two days workshop was organized by the Department of Electronics and Communication on 30th and 31st of January, 2019 under TEQIP-III. Experienced persons on this field were invited to deliver lectures on their respective nanotechnology domain. Students and faculties from different Institute such as NIELIT Imphal, Manipur Institute of Technology attended the workshop. 

Overview

Nanotechnology is defined as the study and use of structures between 1 nanometer and 100 nanometers in size. The size would take eight hundred 100 nanometer particles side by side to match the width of human hair. The concepts that seeded nanotechnology were first discussed in 1959 by renowned physicist Richard Feynman in his talk There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom, in which he described the possibility of synthesis via direct manipulation of atoms. The term “nano-technology” was first used by Norio Taniguchi in 1974, though it was not widely known. Inspired by Feynman’s concepts, K. Eric Drexler used the term “nanotechnology” in his 1986 book Engines of Creation: The Coming Era of Nanotechnology, which proposed the idea of a nanoscale “assembler” which would be able to build a copy of itself and of other items of arbitrary complexity with atomic control.

Nanotechnology, as defined by size, is naturally very broad, including fields of science as diverse as surface science, organic chemistry, molecular biology, semiconductor physics, energy storage,  microfabrication, molecular engineering, etc. The associated research and applications are equally diverse, ranging from extensions of conventional device physics to completely new approaches based upon molecular self-assembly, from developing new materials with dimensions on the nanoscale to direct control of matter on the atomic scale.

Aim and Objective

To enhance the knowledge of nanotechnology and its importance.

One Day Workshop on MSME Schemes, Programs for Industry setup and funding

A one day workshop on “MSME Schemes, Programmes for Industry setup and funding” was organized by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering on 30th of January at MTU academic building, Polytechnic Campus. The workshop is sponsored by TEQIP-III. 

Aim and Objective

MSME stands for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises. MSME tailors more labour-intensive enterprises at low costs. The first session of the workshop will provide the opportunities for learning about the various schemes and programmes under the Government of India by offering individuals formal training, business plan development, guidance and follow-up during their own business idea implementation using the aids of MSME. The second session focuses on how to develop an idea to a viable project or a start-up, securing, procuring and funding options. The aim is to help enable the students to understand the importance of self-sustenance and employability.
