After the address by eYantra Team, IIT Bombay certificates were distributed to the GGI-eYantra team members. After the successful completion of task-based training by GGI-eYantra team organised by IIT Bombay, the award of an Enthusiastic team was given to the team of GGI.

Executive Director of Gulzar Group of Institutes Er. Gurkirat Singh has inaugurated the ceremony by Lighting the lamp, Ribbon cutting and he applauded the eYantra team for their exemplary work.  He said Gulzar Group of Institutes is always ready to take such an initiative for the betterment of student’s fraternity and spread awareness of technology in the society and it would be very much possible with the help of IIT Bombay and GGI-eYantra coming together.

Salient features of eYantra Lab, IIT Bombay:

  1. A lab to promote experiential learning in Embedded Systems and Robotics Technology.
  2. Extraordinary benefits for the students of engineering to develop their practical skills and strengthen their foundation for better success in future.
  3. E-Yantra is sponsored by MHRD under the National Mission on Education through ICT program.
  4. An initiative by IIT Bombay that aims to create the next generation of embedded systems engineers with a practical outlook to help provide practical solutions to some of the real world problems.
  5. It is designed as a scalable and sustainable approach that addresses the students and teacher training – to create an eco-system at the colleges to impart effective engineering education.
  6. eLSI (eYantra Lab Initiative) by IIT Bombay provides guidance and support for the establishment of the eYantra Lab in Gulzar Group of Institutes, Ludhiana and also help in the training of students with live projects.
  7. Students after completing their training and different projects from GGI-eYantra will be able to join e-Yantra Symposium (eYS) which is held in IIT Bombay every year.
  8. e-Yantra Symposium (eYS) is an annual event at IIT-Bombay — This is an event to bring all those colleges which have set up robotics labs and through the e-Yantra Lab Setup Initiative (eLSI) they could share their knowledge. The goal is to share projects and brainstorm new ideas for improving pedagogy and the quality of Engineering projects.
  9. No registration fee is charged from teachers and students from colleges who attend the symposium.
  10. Students of all branches of engineering even with basic knowledge can be benefited from GGI-eYantra Embedded Systems and Robotics Lab.
