First-Year MECH Students Visit Vikram Sarabhai Space Museum

First-year Mechanical Engineering (MECH) students from RCET had the opportunity to visit the Vikram Sarabhai Space Museum in Thiruvananthapuram on 14 June 2024. This educational visit was aimed at enhancing their understanding of space technology and engineering applications.

The Vikram Sarabhai Space Museum, named after the father of the Indian space program, showcases the rich history and achievements of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO). During the visit, students explored various exhibits detailing the development of satellite technology, rocket engineering, and significant space missions. They gained insights into the practical applications of mechanical engineering in the field of space exploration, including the design and manufacturing of rockets and satellite systems.

The visit provided the students with a hands-on learning experience, bridging the gap between theoretical knowledge and real-world applications. It was an inspiring day that underscored the role of mechanical engineers in advancing space technology.

Expressing their gratitude, the students and faculty members thanked the management, Principal, First Year Coordinator, and Head of the Department (HOD) for their support and permission to organize this industrial visit. “This visit has been incredibly educational and motivating for our students,” said Dr.Rejinis, class advisor of first year Mechanical Engineering . “We are grateful for the opportunity to see the contributions of mechanical engineering to space research and development, “added Mr.Nagarajan who accompanied the team

Overall, the visit to the Vikram Sarabhai Space Museum was a memorable and enriching experience for the first-year MECH students, providing them with valuable insights and inspiration.
