Engineering education is all about “Do Engineering” rather than read and write. But in the conventional engineering education, most of courses are theory based and few laboratory courses students are unable to visualize the concepts. In Electronics engineering course “Do Engineering” is even more essential as most of the courses deal with circuits. The circuit concepts can be better conveyed by faculty and understood by doing experiments along with theory classes. Unfortunately, in the conventional engineering education, in most of the time there is no synchronization between the two. This is due to infrastructure limitations and time constraints. In the present laboratory courses, students get limited time to conduct experiments, they will be satisfied if they get output, students won’t think of various analysis that can be performed on the same circuit.
As a solution to this, we have developed Remote Lab system using National Instruments product Analog Discovery to conduct Analog Electronic Circuits. Using which user can conduct experiments remotely. Using this remote lab system, 25+ experiments with 120+ variations can be conducted. This remote lab is designed in such that user feel like as though it’s being conducted in lab. Many analysis like, time response, Bode plots and spectrum can be performed.
In this webinar series, we Demonstrate how to use Remote Lab system developed at Department of Telecommunication Engineering, SIT, Tumakuru. It’s recommend that webinar participants to have installed with Team viewer 12 so that Experiments can be contacted remotely during webinar itself.

In the 21st Century, society plays a bigger role in many development activities of engineering institutions like providing land for expansion, offering buildings to expand the institutions and providing other community resources. Medical Institutions are closely connected with the society. Next Agricultural Universities serve the agriculturalists through well-planned Extension Departments, seed selling, soil testing and training the agriculturalists through training programs. Most of the American universities maintain very good relationships the University Foundation, admission to Music performance, sports events etc. The Polytechnic Colleges are very much engaged in the “Community Development through Polytechnics”. They transfer appropriate rural technology, conduct skill development programs for the rural youth, provide support service to other organizations and provide information. To establish more close relations with the society, a brainstorming session was conducted in the Northeastern states. The community members expressed their needs in computer applications and continuing education programs for rural people. A quality circle meeting was held by involving 356 lectures from the polytechnic colleges and 5 engineering colleges. The significant outcomes are 1. Conducting open house to the society and organizations, 2. providing information on the long-term programs, continuing education programs, testing facilities, space availability, and other resources, 3. Booklets on the establishment of micro-workshops, safety, saving electricity, environmental protection, water management, irrigation management, farmhouses, rural roads, etc. 4. The engineering institutes could conduct a few programs in cooperation with the micro and small-scale engineering enterprises. All the services are to be priced. The engineering institutes can provide information to the school students on the available technical courses and their career needs.
