Vidya’s IEEE branch  provides necessary supports to the needy children to develop an understanding into professional career and good citizenship, to live life happily, satisfactory and as fruitful citizen of the society.  It helps the pupils to get ample information of various newly emerging and technical courses and their prospects. Dr Sudha Balagopalan (Dean Academics & Professor in EEE Dept) is co-ordinating the activities in the college.

As a part of the IEEE Smart Village initiative to empower school students from the weaker section of the society, a vocational awareness program series was scheduled at SoS Village Mulayam, Thrissur, Kerala, India. The first session of the series was held at SoS Village Mulayam on 08 April 2023. Five student mentors Anjay Krishnan (S2, EEE Dept), Ardra Shanmughan (S2, EEE Dept), Devika Santhosh (S2, EEE Dept), Midhun Joshy (S4, EEE Dept) and Akila M(S6, ECE Dept) engaged the hands-on session using SNAP CIRCUIT kits.

Mr Praveesh V V (Asst Prof,  EEE Dept) accompanied the student mentors and provided necessary supports. Around 20 students from 5th to 9th grade attended the session. Students were divided into five groups of four members each with a mentor per group. Mentors explained all the details about the components included in the kit and demonstrated the use of all the components with the help of simple circuits. All students actively participated in the session with much enthusiasm. Later the students were asked to make circuits by themselves and all of them succeeded in building the circuits. Around 15 to 20 circuits were completed per group.Students and mentors gave positive feedbacks about the session. Students were really happy to have such a wonderful hands-on  session and the mentors were really happy in sharing their knowledge with the participants.

The Editorial Team of News & Events joins the entire Vidya fraternity in extending hearty congratulation to our Dean Dr Sudha, Mr Praveesh, Mr Anjay, Ms Ardra, Ms Devika, Mr Midhun and Ms Akila on the successful conduct of the session  that  helps to get ample information of various newly emerging and technical activities that stand exploded today !!!
