Student Achievements

Four UG students (Shashank, Smriti, Shreyoshi, Saumya) from the department of ECE, NMIT, under the guidance of Dr Raghunandan, successfully demonstrated Intra-Body Communications - the use of the body as a conductor - not only of electricity, but also actual digital data. The attenuation and distortion have been found to be negligible even when the data flows through multiple bodies.

One of these students - Smriti Misra - has joined IT-BHU (Banaras Hindu University) as a Junior Research Fellow. Though the position was open for post-graduates, Smriti was selected for the research position, and the interviewer mentioned that it was because of the uniqueness of the Intra-Body Communications project done.

NMIT students have won the 2nd prize in the Nation-wide IoT Innovation Challenge 2017 organized by Nasscom.

A team of five NMIT students - Shashank Shankar (ECE), Dilip Sai (ECE), Shreyas Dattashivarama (ECE), Arjun Kini (ISE) and Akhil (CSE), under the guidance of Dr Raghunandan (Professor, ECE), have won the 2nd prize in the Nation-wide IoT Innovation Challenge 2017 organized by Nasscom

The team of students designed and developed the prototype of a solution to localize potential cracks in railway tracks. They have named their work PATRIOT (Predictive Anomaly Tracker for Railways using IOT). They are in the process of patenting their solution, and are now working on a more comprehensive solution to the problem.


Alpha College of Engineering​ in association with​ All India Council for Technical Education(AICTE) organized Second National Students' Project Exhibition - 2017​ ​on 7 May, 2017

Our students Tejas S, Suhas M V, Snigdha, and Devesh K H ​were awarded the ​first prize under ECE stream.​ for their Project ​on a smart quadcopter for agricultural assistance​. The​ Project guid​es were Prof Sitaram Yaji from ECE​ ​dept and Prof Sanket Salvi from ISE dept.

KPIT Sparkle Contest: KPIT is a leading Indian MNCs with a commitment to foster sustainable and socially relevant technologies. To encourage young minds towards innovation and creativity, KPIT has launched an annual contest, SPARKLE, for Science and Engineering students across India. The theme for the contest for the year 2017 was “Smart Cities”!! With every passing year the event attracts an increasing number of talented students from across the country. This year students submitted a whopping 1545 number of project proposals / ideas!! After a careful and elaborate process of scrutiny and evaluation, the expert panels have shortlisted 35 ideas / projects for showcasing at the Grand Final of this year’s event in February 2017. During the finals students compete for internships / jobs, national level visibility, awards and sizeable prize money!!

NMIT is a member of the PACE program of KPIT. Faculty at NMIT have been encouraging and supporting extensive participation of the students of the institution at SPARKLE since the inception of the contest. Over 100 project / innovation ideas have been submitted across various editions of the event by the students of NMIT. With 33 proposals / ideas accepted for consideration at SPARKLE 2017, NMIT was 4th among the list of top 10 participating institutions across India!! The fact that 2 of these proposals, were among the list of 35 shortlisted for the Grand Finals of SPARKLE 2017 stands testimony of the quality of innovation and sustained focus on ideation at NMIT. Projects of NMIT students on “Nano Fuel” for reduced emission and enhanced efficiency and smart approach for “waste Management” are selected for the Grand Finals at SPARKLE 2017. A notable aspect of each proposal that made to the Grand Finals was the interdisciplinary nature of the approach by students from ECE, ME and EEE involved in the ideation and implementation.

In all 10 student projects under the guidance of ProfRaghunandan S, Prof SankarDasiga, Prof SeetaramYaji, Prof Shashidhar KS and Prof Girish GK were shortlisted for prototyping

Ashish Tiwari, student of 7th Sem ECE, has been selected among top 09 students across the country by Indian Society for Technical Educaion (ISTE) to represent India at 12th Global Student Forum (GSF) 2016 (scheduled from 04-06 Nov 2016) and World Engineering Education Forum (WEEF) 2016 (scheduled from 06-10 Nov 2016) to be held at Seoul, South Korea. He will be presenting his major project in the conference.

Nasscom, the Industry body, has organized a challenge on IoT Innovation for engineering colleges. NMIT is proud to say that our team is one of the 40 teams shortlisted from across India, including some IITs. More updates in due course.

A team of students from ECE Dept, NMIT - Santosh, Sandeep and Yuvraj, participated in "MED4DEV India-Israel Affordable Healthcare Hackathon", under the leadership of Dr Tarun, who is a medical doctor and an enterpreneur. They developed a fine product in just 1.5 days and received appreciation. Their result is available at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XY6u6s_FfXE&feature=youtu.be
