A virtual industrial visit to Hydroelectric Power Plant was organised by the OJT and Industrial link Committee, Engineering Department, for diploma and bachelor students of Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering students on 25 March 2021 to enhance students’ knowledge on the real time process of hydroelectric energy conversion in power plants.

Twenty-five students attended the virtual session at 10 AM, and were briefed by the Mr Veera Nagi Reddy, lecturer, UTAS-Ibri, about the major components of a hydroelectric power plant and their functions. The following were shown to the students virtually and explained to them with help of 3D images.

  • Aerial view of hydroelectric power plant;
  • The reservoir and dam
  • Gate house and Spillway
  • Powerhouse
  • Turbines
  • Breaker room
  • Substation and surge tanks
  • Control room

Outcome

The students were able to understand the internal working of hydroelectric power plant through this virtual presentation. It was an informative session for students in learning concepts of power plant engineering.

 DR. SUJATA PANICKER, was a very active, always on-the-go, and enthusiastic woman.  Whenever she was in the campus, she would often be seen moving with a lot of energy and in a state of urgency and excitement.

She was always willing to help and assist in whatever way she could at work.  She volunteered to teach her colleagues needing guidance on how things are done in the Department, and would readily share her files, forms, and resources.

She was involved in most of the activities, programs, and events organized by the Department since the start.  She was a coordinator or a committee member for the Engineering Society, SORESA, Engineering Technofest, CASET, and various symposia, conferences, seminars, and workshops.

She was passionate about her job and Chemistry; she loved to read and do research about what's the latest in her field.  

She acted as the Team Leader and Supervisor of several RG, TRC, and URG Projects. A couple of the projects she supervised even won National Awards in the Sultanate.

To the Engineering Staff, she was more than a colleague, she was an elder sister and a dear friend, who spent time to ask how things were in their personal and family lives.  She would invite friends and colleagues over to dine with her and her family from time to time.

As a teacher, she was fixture in the Chemistry Lab and Classroom, as well as in Introduction to Renewable Energy courses.  She taught with zeal and exuberance; students might have found some of the lessons difficult but the classes were never boring.

She was also very competitive; she loves joining contests of wit and knowledge, and during her younger days, she was into sports.

Dr. Sujata, as a pioneer member of the Engineering Department Family, will be missed by everyone whose lives she has touched.  As we mourn her sudden passing, may we be comforted that the life that she lived while she was with us had been great and worthwhile.

The Risk Management Committee of the Engineering Department organised an awareness programme entitled “Risk Identification Techniques” on Tuesday, 23 March 2021 from 11 to 11.30 am for diploma-level students.

MrJ.Stephen Leon, the lecturer in the Engineering Department, conducted the programme.

The programme started with an introduction about the need of risk identification. A brief introduction has been given on various steps involved in risk management such as risk identification, risk analysis, risk evaluation, risk treatment and risk monitoring.

Detailed explanation was given on a few risk identification techniques such as the Four Quadrant Scenario Analysis, Structured What-If Technique (SWIFT) and Failure Mode Effect Analysis. A practice exercise was given to the students to use the risk register in order to register the identified risk.

All the participants benefited from this programme.
