A Technical symposium was conducted on 6th February by the SOCIETY OF MECHANICAL ENGINEERS association and it has been a eventful day in the history of college and the venue was paladugu paravati devi college of engineering and technology. Honourable chief guest of the event was Dr.Paladugu Parvathi Devi garu the chair person of PPDCET and the judge of various events was prof.S.Sreedhar garu principal of Sri Saradhi Institute Of Science and technology and P.Chenna Rao garu principal of PPDCET and also heads of various departments has attended this event .The inauguration was presided by the honorable guests. The judge S.Sreedhar garu has given his valuable message to the students to improve their technical skills during their academics and produce a good innovative ideas in the real world. MELAZO 2k’14 a departmental newsletter was released by incorporating all the aspects of departmental activities. During this symposium we have conducted various events such as paper presentation, poster presentation, model exhibition, technical quiz and Robo race. A total of 120 papers and 50 posters were received, out of which 20 papers and 20 posters were selected for presentation. Papers and posters were received from institutions all over India. All the papers were organized into 2 sessions with each session dealing with specific fields. The event gave a great opportunity and provided a platform to interact with students in the area of ROBOTICS.

Robotics Workshop

A guest lecture was given by prof.shyam Prasad garu working as senior professor at K.L.U which was organized by K.L.U-ASME students section on 13th march 2013 by the topic “WHEELED ROBOTICS WORKSHOP”.

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION: Robotics is a multi-disciplinary subject with roots in electronics, computer science and mechanics. Although it is not taught in schools a lot of students still pursue it as a hobby while struggling to find out something works or does not work. In this workshop we teach students how to read a circuit diagram,how to put together components to build a circuit. Since we aim to learn by examples, we build different components of a wireless robot and put them together to what it come alive.


  • Fun experiments and practical sessions

  • Electronic kit to buid and carry home

  • Joining a mailing list community of hobby robotics enthusiasts.

  • Certificate of appreciation from K.L.U-ASME students section organization.


The main aim behind industrial visit was keeping in view the importance of having technical knowledge for a student. Our students of mechanical engineering department visited to Krishna district lorry association. It provides information on the functions and proper usage of diesel oil,inlets,outlets,gear box,rear axle and front move axle. In addition to this the metric also educates the trainees on problem solving methods. Exclusive training is given here on practical grounds where the trainee learns and also practices oneself how to attach main parts and how to detach them. Before a driver starts with his driving he is educated with the practical knowledge on traffic rules, which are very useful to students. The institute conducts useful traffic theory classes to the participants of this training programme. This is achieved through identifying,learning outcomes.

The Krishna District Lorry Owners Association was established in 1953. Goods transport was highly disorganized in those days and lorry owners were few with plenty of problems. Some enlightened operators visualised the need to organise themselves into an association to make concerted efforts to solve their problems. The result was the formation of “the krishna district lorry owners association”in 1953 and registered in 1966 at the instance of the registrar of Societies with comprehensive and well defined Industrial visits represent important activities in any engineering undergraduate programme that contribute to the achievement of various essential learning outcomes and programme objectives. This paper reports on an attempt to make the industrial visit an integral part of the course. This is achieved through identifying, learning outcomes and a suitable industrial site to achieve them. In this case a thermal power plant was identified as a site to be visited by mechanical engineering students.


An Initiative of Aerospace Engineering Graduates from IIT Kanpur is conducting workshops on various aspects of mechanical and aeronautical engineering for the undergraduates.A part of academic co-curricular activities with the support of management and department of mechanical engineering we organised workshop in our Paladugu parvati devi college of Engg & technology on October 9th and 10th 2014 The theme of workshop is aimed at students with diverse backgrounds with an interest to learn about automobile design which will make the students understand about design, analysis, and integration of engine with chassis, etc. It provides an opportunity to experience the true spirit of engineering.
