About IEDC :
The Innovation and Entrepreneurship Cell of KCG College of Technology played a very crucial role in nurturing my skills and ideas. As a core team member of E-cell team for 2012, we had a great learning experience organising the NEN E-Week 2012. We got a chance to meet a lot of entrepreneurs and innovators from various walks of life. It really inspired us in a great way. I- Cell also had great mentors like Mr.Dorai Thodla who really encouraged innovations and further gave us a lot of ideas to improve our projects. IEDC coordinator Ms. Sumathi Poobal was a constant source of support and they really pushed us to succeed in our endeavours. Through IEDC, I was able to secure funding for my projects. My pre-final year project – The Regenerative Shock absorber (Patented) was funded by IET and my final year project- Special Purpose Mobility Vehicle was funded by DST , Government of India. The college also supported us extensively by providing us dedicated workshops and 24/7 access to our labs while we were working on our SAE BAJA project, which was an All India competition conducted by the Society of Automotive Engineers in association with Mahindra and Mahindra. We were able to compete with the most reputed colleges in India, notably the IIT’s and NIT’s due to the extensive support by our college and we emerged as one of the 14 best designs in the competition.
I believe that KCG College of Technology is one of the few niche engineering colleges in the country which focus on the All-round development of an individual.
