Kanpur, December 6, 2022: The Department of Mechanical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IIT-K) is organizing a High-End Workshop (कार्यशाला: KARYASHALA) on “Mechatronics and Microfabrication (MechMicroFab-2022)” from 05th - 15th December 2022. The High-End Workshop (कार्यशाला: KARYASHALA) is funded by the Department of Science and Technology-Science and Engineering Research Board (DST-SERB), Government of India under “Accelerate Vigyan, Mission- ABHYAAS (अभ्यास: Skill development)”. This workshop caters to the National Mission on Interdisciplinary Cyber-Physical System (NM-ICPS) and aims to skill the next generation of researchers to adapt and evolve with scientific research and modern technologies in a rapidly transforming global manufacturing scenario.
MechMicroFab-2022 offers a platform for training with basic and advanced control systems, mechatronics, statistical tools, modern manufacturing, and precision micro/nanoscale fabrication technologies. The trained researchers will also align with the vision of Skill India and Atmanirbhar Bharat.
MechMicroFab-2022 is coordinated by Prof. Janakarajan Ramkumar and Prof. Sarvesh Kumar Mishra from the Department of Mechanical Engineering, IIT Kanpur. Speakers from various reputed institutes will deliver lectures to complement learning on various thematic research areas.
Prof. J. Ramkumar said that there are 40 students participating in the workshop, including a good number of women researchers from across the country.
Prof. Sarvesh Kumar Mishra added that the participants will receive hands-on training on high-end equipment, planning and performing experiments, data collection and interpretation, and basic etiquettes to maintain exorbitant precision machining and additive manufacturing systems which covers various application industries from biomedical to defence, aerospace to automotive sectors. In the 11 day-long workshop, priority will be given on imparting knowledge on certain areas that otherwise remain less-explored.
