Bosch – Rexroth Centre of Competence
The College, known for its quality Engineering education, innovative practices in teaching learning processes and research, took a giant leap by joining with Bosch–Rexroth to establish a centre of competence at a cost of 5 crores in industrial automation technologies, which is the first of its kind in AP. This centre is located in the research park along with Microsoft Innovation Center centre, Siemens Centre of Excellence and center for Robotics, which was built in a plinth area of one lakh square feet at a cost of Rs 20 crores in the college.
The College has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with Bosch – Rexroth Ltd, a German company which is a pioneer in drives and controls and known for providing turnkey solutions in automation to the industries around the globe for the past century. Being an autonomous college this initiative bridges the gap between industry and academia by incorporating global industrial practices and technologies into the academic curriculum.
The centre houses state of the art equipment in electro-pneumatics, electro-hydraulics, proportional and servo hydraulics, electrical servo drives, sensorics, programmable logic controllers, motion logic drives, modular mechanical systems and automation studio. The equipment enables students and faculty of different streams of engineering to design solutions to industrial automation requirements and carry out research by integrating mechanical, electrical, electronics, instrumentation and information technologies. The college offers training and consultancy in the above technologies to the industry and academia along with inhouse training.
A team of 12 senior faculty members of different engineering departments of the college have undergone extensive training for one month at Bosch – Rexroth centre for industrial automation at Mysore in the first phase. Faculty will regularly undergo intensive training at Bosh-Rexroth center in Germany.
