SME is a nonprofit association of professionals, educators and students committed to promoting and supporting the manufacturing industry. SME helps manufacturers innovate, grow and prosper by promoting manufacturing technology, developing a skilled workforce and connecting the manufacturing industry. SME supports manufacturing based on our core belief: Manufacturing is key to economic growth and prosperity.
Here at SME- PEC Chapter, we focus on inculcating the core aspects of manufacturing aligning itself with this rapidly changing industry. Our goal is to create a community of like-minded engineers and try to come up with a collective solution to various engineering problems while making fun-to do projects in order to learn via practical application.
Major Events done by the club:
Workshops: We try to provide hands on experience in multiple domains which form the core to any Manufacturing process by inviting Industry Leaders, promoters and by developing knowledge in a like-minded peer group. These workshops include- Machine Shop visits, Casting, Forging, Fabrication, Carpentry, Computer Aided Designing (CAD)/ Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM), Industrial Robotics and other advanced processes/ technologies.
- Angry Catapult: To build a catapult on site as efficient as possible with the equipment’s provided and the dedicated time allotted.
