About the workshop
The workshop was conducted covering the subject matter on revamping knowledge on modern-day construction materials, especially, on pre-fabricated building materials which are low cost, suitable for earthquake-prone areas and have high thermal insulation properties.
Aim and Objective:
The objective is to provide exposure to students about manufacturing practices of pre-fabricated building materials and knowledge of its implementation on the existing field conditions. It also aimed to highlight the construction practices involved in the installation of insulated panels which differ from normal masonry and R.C.C construction. Hands on training gives awareness about new technologies and technology development about which students should have a good knowledge. It also aimed at creating chances for job placement and training at Kingspan Jindal Pvt. Ltd. and its subsidiaries.
Attending such kind of workshops help the students to gain practical knowledge outside the classroom environment and help students to create and build their Proforma.
Future Action/ Follow – up Action Plan
Training and placement of students in Kingspan Jindal Pvt. Ltd. and recommendation and adoption of low-cost building material in any upcoming projects of MTU.
Event Outcomes with concluding remarks
The event saw participation by students of Manipur Technical University whose knowledge on engineering subjects highly got improved as seen in the reports submitted by them. It also helped publicize Manipur Technical University with respect to how the institute is performing in organizing co-curricular activities.
