First year engineering students! Do you know about this app?

A team of Engineering students from Karnataka had volunteered to develop an Android application for first year engineering students.

This app is called ‘Engienrai’ and it encapsulates the notes for engineering with all the subjects from the respective branches. Prepared and sorted by the engineering students themselves, Enginera's syllabus is purely based on Autonomous and VTU colleges. The application is very user-friendly. It contains notes and self-explanatory diagrams and drawings while giving free access to these notes of all the subjects under one roof. Once it is installed, it also works offline.

This application is very useful and informative to first years and is a must-have. It can be used in the following ways.
  • Last moment preparation before the exam.
  • Brush up tool for interviews and jobs.
  • Peripheral introduction to basic engineering concepts before any competitive exams.

The app was developed by a team of nine students; one of them being an Animation Designer. They began working on this app in January 2017 and it was officially launched in September. The app also provides a platform for students to get their doubts clarified. The team makes it a point to answer the doubts posted by students. The team is also currently in works of developing second year engineering content. They believe that this app would be of a lot of use to Engineering students as it provides study material for free and that it will help them with their studies.

AVCOE believes that innovation like this one is what changes the world and we are always looking forward to support and encourage our students’ talent in the invention field.

On day two, the alumni shared what they are currently doing (be it work or study) and what their plans are for the upcoming years. The alumni gave the current generation an in-depth explanation of how they will help them in work by completing a profile on their site, students avail themselves to businesses looking for skilled candidates. The alumni also pressed on the issues in the country and its difficulty that exists around i.e.finding employment after studying, partly due to lack of experience. They seek to connect students to what they call as "internships”, which is part-time work a student can do from the day they start studying. Such opportunities may help students come to realizations about their field of study earlier giving them the chance to gain certain skills or change their career path. The alumni also gave pointers and tips to graduate job-seekers and students looking to complete internships and in-service training.
