A two-day workshop on making of 9W LED blub was conducted by IEEE IAS Student Branch Chapter, IEDC UKFCET and Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, UKFCET as part of the inauguration ceremony of IMC(Incubation & Maintenance Center) at College Campus on 24th and 25th July 2018. IMC is meant for students as a platform to experiment their ideas to a useful product. It serves as a unit of IEDC at UKFCET and hence qualified projects will be financially supported by Kerala start-up mission.
Making LED Bulb was a hands-on workshop which aims to enhance the technical knowledge of students, as well as enable them to assemble and repair the LED bulbs. This workshop was attended mostly by students of Electrical and Electronics Engineering Department, UKFCET. It was scheduled for two days, the first day meant for the familiarization and the working of the components of LED bulb and the second day for assembly and testing of its components from scratch. Students successfully made 58 LED bulbs and tested ok from the two-day workshop.
The objective of the two-day workshop was to impart deep practical knowledge to the students and hence practical sessions are conducted in our well-equipped lab under expert guidance. Receiving a good response from participants, the Two-Day workshop came to an end with a valedictory session, wished by Mr. Akhil A G in-charge of IMC, UKFCET. All participants received certificates and the programme was concluded with vote of thanks by Mr. Athul M V, Asst. professor, Electrical & Electronics Engineering department on behalf of the organizing committee. The LED Bulbs Produced were marketed and sold out on fresher’s day on August 1st conducted in the college campus. Thus the first workshop conducted by the IAS SBC UKFCET was a grand success.
