Do It Yourself (DIY)



To make students Industry Ready, College of Engineering Roorkee (COER) focuses on Project Based Learning (PBL) concept. PBL is an innovative method in which students learn by actively engaging in real-world technical/ non-technical problems and provide solutions.This strategy of learning to enhance Industrial Technical Skills, COER motivates each student to implement at least one project in each year.

In view of this, COER established a DIY Laboratory to inculcate innovative spirit among the Undergraduate and Post Graduate students through the concept of Do-It-Yourself. This lab was inaugurated on Nov 03rd ,2017 by Honourable Chief Minister of Uttarakhand, Shri Trivendra Singh Rawat and Honourable Chairman, Er. Shri J.C Jain.

This lab acts as a playground for manifestation of ideas, where instruments, tools and consumables can be accessed in all engineering domains free of cost (No limit of funds on Research and Development of Innovative Projects).

Mentoring and Technical Support

COER provides Mentoring and Technical Support to each students in project implementation. COER faculty members are trained in all emerging areas of Engineering & Management due to which they provide unique background to induce innovations in each project. COER allots one mentor to each group for providing basic knowledge of the selected domain and topics. COER also provides technical staffs who help in implementations. COER also provides various innovative labs (such as Automation, Pneumatics, Hydraulics, PLC, Parallel Processing/ High Computing, Space and Rocket, Networking, Computer Hardware, IoT etc.) for learning of related emerging technologies.

Apart from Mentors, Students are supported by senior students of various technical clubs (TRIAC, SAE, AREO, EEE MANIAC etc.) who share their ideas and helps in Design and Implementation of their projects.
