DEPARTMENT OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERING

resenting before you the interview of Dr Jitendra Mehrotra who is one of the senior most faculty
of Mechanical engineering department. He holds a very rich industrial experience. We, students of
JSSATEN, are highly previleged that he is here to guide us. His kind nature makes him more adorable
amongst the students. And his deep knowledge makes him more approachable as a result of which this
interview came out quite with an ease .
What do you think about role of discipline in students life?
Discipline is the key to success this saying holds true for all times and for all people
of all age groups. But for students, it holds a greater value. In contemporary times,
there are so many temptations that can lure a student away from his basic objective in
life. Self-discipline is the only tool by virtue of which a student can achieve new heights of
academic excellence. Success will lie with those students who value and practice self
discipline and abide by it at all times.
What improvements should students bring in themselves in order to
gain maximum from college studies?
Today there is cut throat competition and time is extremely precious.
Students should concentrate on thorough studies no shortcuts develop
their personalities and physical fitness with outdoor games. Fortunately,
our college is equipped with all such facilities. Keep a goal of clearing
competitive examinations ultimately; therefore, need to learn the basics
of your course curriculum in the view of new development/innovations.
College studies/ group discussions are one of the important tools of
developing skills at college level. Dont lose this opportunity.

MEHROTRA

ASSOCIATE PROFESSOR

What are your views about faculty training? Do you think it to be


necessary so as to keep them in touch with recent trends and innovations in industries?
Faculty Development Programs are always essential for up gradation of knowledge which your college and the department
are carrying out. In addition we have expertise guest Lecture Programs.
What according to you should a teacher do to motivate students?
A teacher should be courteous, disciplined, concerned with students and get their doubts clarified.
He should motivate students with logical conclusions.
What would you like to suggest students to overcome exam stress?
If you are a regular disciplined student, you will not have any exam stress. Devote your time everyday to revise your class
work.
Some students score less than they are capable of , how should a student write in exam to get maximum marks?
Scoring good marks in examination depends on your answer logically in accordance to questions asked. The answer
should be precise, neatly written and replied with usage of models/graphs/diagrams. All numerical should be solved and
results to be shown along with units.
What are your suggestions for the students, especially third year and final year students who are going to face real
world in a few days?
This is very important issue. Your preparations should start from second year only when you enter the department with the
objective of clearing the competitive examination at the end of final year. Technical competencies with fundamentals to
be attained .In addition you have to prepare qualitative and quantitative question papers keeping personality development
in mind. Final year students should revise all above attributes and face the interviews. It should be noted that in interview,
final year projects ,which you carried are discussed in great detail.

antrashilpa is the society of Mechanical Engineering department in


JSSATE which provides
students a platform to apply
theoretical
knowledge
in solving real world
engineering problems.
We organize different
workshops, events and
competitions to provide
students a rich mixture
of hands on training
and an opportunity to
express your technical
and innovative skills.
The student works on
a wholesome mix of
problems requiring not
only innovative thinking
but also team work and
managerial abilities on the students part. Events such as Solar Splash,
Hydronoid and Beat the Weight not only act as a stimulus to ignite
the thinking ability of the participants, but also aim at solving societal
problems such as energy crisis etc. The society, thus, acts as a bridge
between students, faculty and industry experts helping students learn
and work in various sub-domains of Mechanical Engineering .

EALICON 2014
antrashilpa organised four events - Water rocket, Take-off, Hydronoid
and Beat the weight. We gladly disthat YANTRASHILPA got the
maximum number of participation in 2014 .

HYDRONOID

Yantrashilpa
organized
Hydronoid Level 2.0, an
opportunity to make a
mobile hydraulic crane
movable
with
the
help of syringes
filled with water
.The task was
to
complete
the path by
c r o s s i n g
the
various
hurdles within
the given time

WATER ROCKET
All you need is water
and air to power it,
and a bottle for the
body. Fuel your
creativity
with
imagination
and
ignite it with your
passion to reach the
top of the sky. To our
own astonishments
range was covered more than 90 metres.

UPCOMING WORKSHOPS
1. SUBMARINE - UNDER WATER RACING
2. HYDRONOID LEVEL 3.0

BEAT THE WEIGHT

Participants were to make a structure which


was capable of bearing the maximum load using
only seven playing cards, paper pins, fevicol
and a single A4 sheet . It was a major hit event
with more than eighty registera
.

PAPER PLANE
Participants were to make a plane with an
A4 sheet such that it covers maximum range
with time of flight . Paper plane itself got
more than 160 registeration .

urrently, our project includes design, simulation and building of an off-road vehicle for upcoming
BAJA STUDENT INDIA event in 2015. With improvised design and technical enhancements,
the current vehicle is set to raise the bar in terms of performance. Behind the curtains, the students
learn the ins and outs of project management and documentation. Not only do they learn niche soft
wares and their applications in solving problems but also realizes the importance and methodology

of minimizing cost without compromising on quality. In the process of building each vehicle, every
student gathers experience in field of leadership and innovation, thus realizing that there is much more
to such projects than technology. As the journey continues, team VEGA continues to provide students,
experience, understanding and knowledge of not only automobiles but more behind it. A tremendous
numbers of hours that go in work, ranging from deciding the small angle of shaft to the assembly of
all the parts together and every single second of those hours is a learning experience. In a nutshell,
VEGA aims at LEARNING and improvising while maintaining utmost PERSEVERENCE AS A TEAM.
The SAE event was held at the campus of NIT Jamshedpur in acres of track. The aim of the event
was to judge the design of the vehicle and fabrication by various college teams in various dynamic
and static events. Such events include HILL CLIMBING, acceleration, braking, weight pulling and
endurance test. This means that every single bolt and nut was put to test.
But before all this, owing to the sheer number of participation, to
scrutinizing the number of teams, in the year 2015, the event will be held
under the name of STUDENTS BAJA by the same world-class team and
organisers. Needless to say, having had such a head-start in the previous
year, with the level of competition and the quality of judging,
the efforts of the team are to be increased many folds.
Obstacles are those frightful things you see when
you take your eyes off your goal

What major difference did you see in JSS-ATEN when you entered and when you left it?
The major difference I find now, having passed out, is the increased level of exposure the students are getting,
through collegiate/national level competitions. We used to have a very limited set of opportunities back then.
Hence Id congratulate the students whove worked hard and smart to create, and tap such opportunities.
What extra efforts must be done for the students in order to expand their domain of knowledge and
career opportunities ?
The students who come to JSS have huge potential. They do not need any special assistance
for clearing regular exams. But what is important, lies entirely beyond the scope of
classrooms. The students should be encouraged to organize and participate in technical
competitions and seminars; my focus, being on Organizing events rather than
just participating. Apart from that, industrial exposure is a must. Hence guest
lectures and industrial visits should be much more frequent.
The students must be allowed to pursue their goals in their way. I know that
is much easy to say, and extremely difficult to realize in the jam-packed
curriculum, but hey! I wished I could have these things during my stay
in the college. Its entirely a personal perspective.
What are your views regarding the bunking of the classes by the
students?
Well..it depends on how you utilize that time. Some people like going
to the library (I didnt understand why bunk classes to read books
again? :P), some like hanging out with friends, some like doing other
random stuff.
Now, were these bunks good or bad is entirely a personal view, but
the one sentence answer would be- If you enjoyed that very moment,
without compromising any immediate goal, then it was worth it.
College, apart from being an educational institution is a home for many
of us, hence we are allowed to manage our daily schedule ourselves.
Moreover, its the precise counting of no. of attended classes and bunks
allowed to avoid detention in sessional exams that is the stepping stone to
project management techniques that many learn in the corporate world.

Name the four things which make the life in college worth calling it a
college life.
Firstly, the care-free costumes we are allowed to wear to the classes.
Secondly, the college environment that brings out the very best of every
individual by opening him/her to new experiences, new people, in many
cases, entirely new places, thus carving out the technocrat he/she
intended to be while joining the college.
Thirdly, the day-to-day situations that make us a little more
responsible and hugely more independent. We start assessing
things differently. We start building opinion about things.
Lastly, FRIENDS. They are your family for the entire stay
here. You share each and every aspect of your life with them.
Some stay, some part off gradually, but the time you spend
with them, stays with you forever. And years
later, this
is what is remembered and laughed upon!
