- Pak China Friendship Centre Islamabad
Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC) is organizing the PEC Capstone Expo, which is a series of competitions among the engineering students of public and private sector universities across the country to exhibit their research skills imparted in their Final Year Design Projects (FYDPs) focusing on industrial solutions and societal problems.
HITEC University Taxila has participated in the one-day Engineering Capstone Expo at Pak China Friendship Centre Islamabad on January 12, 2023, in which following projects were showcased:-
Solar Power Refrigerator is a Mechanical Engineering Department project, which was supervised by Mr. Ahmed Zaheer. The students, Mr. Ausfand Yar Ali, Mr. Ahsan Ali, Mr. Rana Umer Farooq and Mr. M. Nouman have fabricated a refrigerator powered by solar energy, making it free from the electrical grid. Refrigeration is achieved using vapor compression system by using a DC compressor.
Seed Sowing Robot is a Mechanical Engineering Department project, which was supervised by Mr. Hammad Ahmed. The students, Mr. Muhammad Mazhar, Mr. Muhammad Awais, Mr. Maaz Anwar and Mr. M. Awais Siddique have developed a seeds sowing strategy that uses robotics in agriculture. The seed-planting machine is commanded via an Arduino UNO, which is used with wheels powered by DC motors. The seeds are disseminated in a consistent manner at each revolution of the wheels.
Truck On Go is a Computer Science Department project, which was supervised by Mr. Muhammad Nouman Noor. The students, Mr. Hasham, Mr. Furqan and Miss Bushra have developed this software based project. It is an android app/web based truck booking application. It is similar to a cab booking service with added functionality, e.g. suggesting the vehicle type for a particular weight limit.
Conversion of Vertical Milling Machine into CNC is an Electrical Engineering Department project, which was supervised by Mr. Shahbaz Khan. The students, Mr. Maarij iftikhar, Mr. Ahsan Zareen and Mr. Zahir Mushtaq have developed a CNC milling machine, which operates cutting tools that are programmed and managed by CNC systems to accurately remove materials from a work piece. The end result of the machining process is a specific part or product that is created using CAD software.
During the closing session of the PEC Capstone Expo - 2022, PEC has announced their efforts for following:-
(Benefits for the students participating in the Capstone Expo
- Arrangement for paid internship @Rs. 30,000/= per month
Funding by PEC to the tune of Rs. 200,000/= for the selected FYDPs in future
