Jamshedpur, Dec. 19: A group of 60 mechanical engineering students from Al-Kabir Polytechnic, Mango accompanied by four teachers: Md. Shamsher Alam (HoD), Md. Mumtaz Rizwee, Md. Taushif and Sumit Minz visited CSIR-NML and interacted with the scientists and researchers of the laboratory.
The students expressed their excitement and happiness over the laboratory visit and the kind of inspiration provided by the NML team while demonstrating various technical skills.
The programme was scheduled for four and half hours, which included an overview of Indian science and technology, audio visual presentation, documentary film shows, visit to NML selective units of the laboratory and practical demonstrative on the working of machines. The students and teachers were thrilled to see the different experimental set-up , sophisticated equipment ,calm and cleanliness of the work environments.
Dr. N. G. Goswami, chief scientist and coordinator of the programme, motivated the students giving a detail picture of Indian Science and Technology and different organizations involved. Many scientists and their Research Group, namely- Dr.V.C.Srivastava, Dr.G.K.Mandal, Dr.Palash Poddar, Dr. Sarmistha Sagar, Dr.A.k.Panda, M.K.Mahata and Dr. Prabir Roy took part in the programme.
Dr P.N.Mishra took the participating students around the laboratory the visiting students were amazed looking at the modern facilities relating to Nondestructive Testing techniques (NDT), Mechanical Testing, Casting and Forging, Tensile Testing, Creep Testing-High Temperature materials behaviors studies, CNC machines and so on.
Basudeo Hembram a final year diploma student said “Many of the machines shown to us here, I read them in books only. Today I am excited to see the large creep Testing Bay. We have been demonstrated the workings of these machines.
This will be helpful to us in near future”. B.R.Tudu, Md. Danish Kamran, Md. Inzmam Ansari, Md. Gulam Ansari, Md. Irfan Mumtaz, Md.Akbar Hussain and many other were of the same opinion. Md.Fejar Jeelani, Md. Asif Ansari and Md. Nawed Akhtar said,“We liked to work in laboratory’s workshop.
The CNC Machine fully automated. We could enhance our working knowledge. We need more such visit and demonstration”.The presentation and demonstration in creep and fatigue laboratory was excellent, said Md. Alam Ansari. Gourav Gupta, Bobby Hansdah and Md.Shakil Ansari supported the view.
Md. Shahnawaj, a student said, “CSIR-NML’s programme under Skill India, is a very good beginning. We can avail the benefit of learning technical Knowledge”. Md Mojammil Hussain, Md. Sharique Nawaz and Md. Natique were deeply motivated looking at the forging demonstrations.
Niraj Oraon said, “I am a fresher, so I need some more time to grasp the process. However, I have learnt about calibration, NDT and Magnetics nicely”. Md. Mehboob Alam and Md.Shahbaz Alam said, “We could understand the working principle of Pneumatic Hammering by the demonstrations. Thanks to CSIR-NML Scientists”.
