Governor Approved 10 Lacs fund to PEC, Chandigarh Team selected for NASA Competition

NASA Competition PEC 2022

Governor Approved 10 Lacs fund to PEC, Chandigarh Team selected for NASA Competition - Praised young team students as budding engineers (Team includes 11 students & 1 professors from PEC, Chandigarh who will visit NASA in April 2023, Chandigarh team among 61 selected globally)

PEC Team of 11 students with Prof. Baldev Setia, Director & other officials today met the honorable Administrator Shri Banwarilal Purohit in the leadership of Mayor Chandigarh Smt. Sarabjit Kaur at Punjab Raj Bhawan, Chandigarh for seeking his blessings.

The Administrator motivated the entire team selected for NASA Human Exploration Rover Challenge (HERC)2023 and also shared stories of his visit to NASA during a tour to the USA. He also mentioned that he feels proud that our students from PEC are participating in this competition. During quite an interesting discussion between students and the Administrator, Students presented the entire process of how they applied and how their project model got selected for NASA competition.

The team made a visual representation on how their rover will look and why they cannot use motors, engines and batteries in this rover. As, team members are combining their shared passions for vehicles and astronomy, the administrator suggested exploring the need of the wheels from Indian railways. Students requested the Governor for funds to support this project as the entire team needs to reach NASA for showcasing their rover performance during two days competition in April 2023 at Alabama USA. The team will be among 61 teams across the globe selected by NASA to participate in its Human Exploration Rover Challenge (HERC)2023. The activity is under the Society for Manufacturing (SME).

Team comprising 11 students from PEC, Chandigarh named Vanshul Goyal, Gunjan Rawat, Sparsh Aggarwal, Shashwant Rai, Muskaan Aneja, Pranav Aggarwal, Gautam Kumar, Yakshit Verma, Himanshu Goyal, Pankaj Kumar, Akshaj Paintola who are currently pursuing 2nd-year Electronics, Mechanical, Production & Industrial Engineering.

PEC Director Dr. Baldev Setia, DSA Dr. D. R. Prajapati, ADSA Dr. Puneet Chawla & Professor In charge Dr. N. M. Suri also accompanied students in this meeting. The Administrator praised these 2nd year PEC students as young budding engineers participating to encourage research and development of new technologies for future missions. He also kind heartedly approved a fund of Rs. 10 Lacs to support this project and wished the team good luck in their mission. Mayor Smt. Sarabjit Kaur also congratulated the entire team for their future endeavors.

Punjab Engineering College Congratulates the students for all their hard work and applauds their enthusiasm and persistence.We hope our students keep bringing us laurels in the days ahead.
