Science & Technical Committee, alias S&T Committee, is the student technical activities body of RGIPT. As an umbrella organization it coordinates Tinkering Lab, Kode Club, E-Cell and Annual Technical Festivals. We work to foster and management skills in institute students by providing a platform to convert ideas to prototypes and prototypes to products. To this end, various lectures, workshops, projects as well as competitions throughout the year keep the calendar busy and the participants, learning.

Autonomous Quadcopter

Quadcopters and drones are revolutionizing the logistics and surveying businesses. Drones provide a more efficient process or can go where human eyes, and skilled hands can’t go. The oil and gas industry in particular requires a lot of working in remote, desolate locations especially in offshore fields. The quadcopter that can functional autonomously can be equipped with various types of sensors, cameras, and surveying equipment. At the present stage our quad can follow a pre guided path during its sorties and can perform basic maneuvers. The quad can be attached to a payload of choice, and be used for various specified tasks.

Intelligent Fire Alarm System

Fire hazards are one of the leading causes leading to loss of life in the developing world. Present fire alarm systems either can't do the job or turn out to be expensive to install and maintain. Meanwhile the functionalities available by application of IoT, Data Science and Machine Learning. Our system utilizes the connectivity options present in the Arduino Uno with various sensors to detect fire, public movements to fire alarm hooters and notifications systems. We are using algorithms to optimize the fire hazard safety, aid self exit and rescue operations. We wish to improve upon the original system so it can better itself at data analytics end use the public directory, improve detection of false alarms and include more interactive mediums for sending alarm notifications.

IoT and Biometric based Secuirty System

Biometric systems operate on behavioral and physiological biometric data to identify a person. The behavioral biometric parameters are signature, gait, speech and keystroke, these parameters change with age and environment. However physiological characteristics such as face, fingerprint, palm print and iris remains unchanged through out the life time of a person. The biometric system operates as verification mode or identification mode depending on the requirement of an application. The verification mode validates a person’s identity by comparing captured biometric data with ready made template. In this project we are going to work with Arduino Uno and Fingerprint Sensor module and with some mechanical tools to make IOT Door Lab.

Land Rover

In our endeavour we are trying to build a small remote controlled land rover which has the ability to propel itself anywhere irrespective of the type of terrain on which it moves. In our basic model our rover will be having a digital camera which can broadcast the live footage of the area. Our main motivation behind the rover project is its utility in the petroleum exploration and drilling sector. As during explorations it is very costly for a team of geoscientists to inspect the site again and again but with the help of rovers we can explore various sites which is more economic and more importantly a continuous data can be extracted. Its efficiency can be increased by adding on more sensors according to the data needed from the inspected site like temperature & humidity sensors. Our future plans for the project comprises of enhanced vehicle stability and size contraction along with various additional sen sors like well depth sensor, temperature sensor, magnetic sensor for oil and natural gas, ultrasonic distance sensor.

Obstacle Avoiding Robot

Robotics is an interesting and fast growing field .Being a branch of engineering ,the application of robotics are increasing with the advancement of technology. The concept of mobile robot is fast evolving and the number of complexities are increasing with different applications. There are many type of mobile robot navigation techniques like path planning, self - localization and map interpreting. An obstacle avoiding robot is a type of autonomous mobile robot that avoids collision with unexpected obstacles. In this project, an Obstacle avoiding robot is designed. It is an Arduino based robot that uses sensors to avoid collision.

Green Campus using Sensors

The aim is to create an energy efficient lighting system for a green academic campus including classrooms, corridors and gardens or specific blocks inside/outside campus too. By this, we offer a scalable and cost effective smart campus automation system. This system needs no manual operation for switching ON/OFF when a person enters or exits a room or any kind of bounded area (such as bounded gardens, halls etc.). The PIR (Passive IR) Sensor and receiver are placed at the entrance of the room doors in such a way that the sensor senses a single person entering/exiting the room at a time. In the Sense of Green Academic Campus Project, we will construct a platform to observe energy consumption in average classrooms, corridors, roads and bounded gardens inside the campus through wireless sensors and visualize the data to users to promote energy awareness. Hence this application can also be built for handling the street lights and corridor lights more economically by placing the sensors on the street lights/corridor lights and can be operated without any difficulty. For large corridors (>50 feet), it can be broken into segments for optimal control of energy consumption.


Kode Club

We believe that every engineer should learn to program a computer, because it teaches you how to think. While students in RGIPT learn programming in their first year, they usually drop it after that. One of our goals is to help these people carry on with programming and retain it as the useful skill it is. For the people who already program, we wish to maintain a community of programmers from all spheres and help people reach greater heights. The focus areas of our club include Data Science, Machine Learning, Application Development, and Simulations for Oil & Gas Industry. We conduct getting started sessions for relevant softwares & programming languages. Kode Club also mentors & funds related S&T Projects and works on desigining & developing insititute’s internal applications.


Tinkering Lab

Every engineer is a Tinkerer. The curosity of knowing how vast varity of things around us work is probably the reason we choose this noble profession. So to keep the Tinkerer alive and busy in a productive way, Tinkering Lab was started under the banner of S&T Committee to inculcate technical hobby hands in institute students. The Tinkering Lab offers the space & logistics for the people to colloborate together and turn ideas into products. It is a maker’s place that motivates, mentors, and funds students with interdiscipliary projects & organizes regular getting started sessions. The lab offers a sack full sensors, modules, prototyping boards, peripherials & other hardwares and is open to accquire more as per project needs.



Entrepreneurship cell RGIPT is an organisation that functions to support and facilitate Industrial and commercial adaption of technologies that can create a positive change in our society. Entrepreneurship cell provides resources and consultancy from its knowledge pool to the prospective entrepreneurs of tomorrow, helping them grow their prototype into a marketable product for the masses or the Industry. Our team colloborate with Tinkering Lab & Kode Club to make their projects viable for market and stives to find apt platforms to lauch and showcase them.
