AICTE -Scheme for Promoting Interests, Creativity and Ethics among Students (SPICES)

The student club “AIREINO” of the Aeronautical Engineering Department of MITE has received a grant of Rs.1 Lakh from AICTE under Scheme for Promoting Interests, Creativity, and Ethics among Students (SPICES) in 2020The student Club “AIREINO”, which aims at elevating the interest of students in flying, irrespective of their branch of Study. 

The Vision of the club is to motivate young minds to develop innovative solutions in Aeronautics, using the state-of-the-art workplace with access to IoT, AI, and ML facilities, promote Interdisciplinary research activities to enhance quality product development. AIRENO trains students in building RC Aircrafts, Hover pods, Drones and encourages them to participate in State and National level competitions. The students get hands-on experience of flying RC aircraft, which includes fixed-wing RC Airplanes, Quad-copters, and Hovercrafts, and in addition, get to collaborate with students from different branches and design innovative solutions. They will also learn leadership and resource management skills, as organizers. This will help them shape their career with a strong foundation of required skills and confidence to solve complex problems of society.

Coordinator: Dr. Purushotham G, Professor and Head, Department of Aeronautical Engineering.

Co-Coordinator: Mr. Adarsh Krishnamurthy, Assistant Professor, Department of Aeronautical Engineering.

Outcome:

By using the facility provided at the AIREINO club on-campus, the students have been actively participating in all the major aero events across the country including at IITs, NITs, and other premier institutes. They have won at 17 national-level events and 7 state-level events in the past 3 years. AIREINO has organized 4 national-level events, and 3 regional-level events on-campus.
