    Department Forum

    Mechatronics and Automation Club for Xploration (MACX) is a Technical and cultural Association run by and for the students of Mechatronic Engineering, MITE Moodabidri, under the guidance of a faculty coordinator. It is headed by President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, Sports Coordinator and Cultural Coordinator who are nominated and elected by the students of the department.

    Since its inception in 2014, MACX has been actively organizing various activities to instil passion, vigour and enthusiasm amongst the students. It has consistently been the pioneer in subduing difficulties of the various aspects of technical fields through guest lectures, workshops, seminars, tech-talks and alumni interactions. The prime motive of the association has been to encourage students to display their hidden talents and to provide a platform to showcase their competence and nourish interpersonal skills which would help them in realizing their dreams.

    The association also focuses on keeping up with the present trends by actively organizing workshop on current technologies and guiding students for higher education by various interactive sessions. Students are also mentored and encouraged to participate in social impact programmes such as blood donation camps, Swachh Bharat Campaigns, Visits to Orphanages and old age homes and providing selfless service to rural areas to aid in overall development.

    Beyond Syllabus

    Flipped Classroom

    Flipped Classroom is an instructional strategy and a type of blended learning focused on student engagement and active learning. It gives the instructor a better opportunity to deal with mixed levels of students. It allows addressing the student difficulties. The students are given a task to summarize and understand a topic by watching video lectures at home and present it in the classroom.

    Brainstorming

    It provides the students to perform group discussion and produce ideas or solve problems. Students are asked to discuss about the topic and present their views. The faculties will summarize it. It helps to improve the presentation skill of the students.

    Industrial Visit

    Students are taken to the industry for getting an idea of working environment in Industry. It also provides practical knowledge.

    Technical Talks

    Technical talks are conducted by inviting eminent speakers in the respective domains. This will help to learn topics beyond the syllabus.

    Workshops

    Workshops are conducted to provide hands on experience.

    • College level Technical Inspection evaluation:

    In college level, a technical inspection was conducted. The kart satisfied all the required parameters as per the rule book of Eco kart and got qualified to the dynamic round

    • Final stage of design evaluation:

    In the dynamic round, the team OCTON Kart cleared and got great appreciation from the event organizers and were unequivocally crowned the Best Design – Eco Kart Award for the innovative design features.

    ROBOTICS CLUB

    The mission of Robotics Club at the Department of Mechatronics Engg, MITE is to unite the students under one roof to pursue their passion towards robotics by executing advanced innovative projects by integrating their mechanical, electronic, and programming techniques. Having said that, the students of the club invest their time beyond academics in design and development of various types of robots for displaying their skills in State & National Level Events. Nonetheless, the club gives significantly more than technical advantage to its individuals. From team building to leadership skills, the club provides essential inter-personal abilities fundamental in everyday life. The club is available to all the undergraduates of MITE with or without any exposure to the field of robotics or automation. The club promotes the sharing of knowledge and experience among all its members ultimately resulting in outstanding accomplishments over the past few years. The students of Robotics club have won several accolades & have stood up to the mark by conquering several championships in “Robo war” and “Robot soccer”.

    • The team emerged as winners of “Bot soccer” at TIARA 2019, a national level technical fest at St. Joseph Engg college.
    • The team won “Robo Race” at Tech Yuva 2019 held at Srinivas University
    • The team won “Robo soccer” at AJIET AAKAR 2019, a state level techno cultural event
    • The team has won “Robo sumo” at St. Joseph Engg college.
    • The team won 2nd place in “Bot Hockey” at NITK Surathkal
    • The team won “Robo Soccer” at Incredia 19 NITTE
    • The team emerged as 2nd runner up in “Bot Soccer” at NIT Goa…, to name a few.
