Technical Societies Functioning in the Institute Premises
For the all round development of the students, the institute provides a host of various students activities. These activities range from sports, personal-hobbies to technical interests. The students are encouraged to become the member of these bodies to help broaden their skills and horizons. These student bodies not only help the students explore their hidden talent but also help in areas such as personality development and inculcating in the students the spirit of organization by providing them with a platform for hosting their talents.
The focus of these technical societies primarily is to help the students gain practical as well as theoretical technical knowledge. Students are provided with an opportunity to implement what they learn in their respective class rooms. The different technical societies are-
ASCE-PEC is the International Student Group of the American Society of Civil Engineers and is the first society in the college entirely dedicated to Civil Engineering. Inaugurated on 31st January 2014, the society is the latest addition to the societies of the university. Founded in 1852, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) represents more than 145,000 members of the civil engineering profession worldwide and is America’s oldest national engineering society.
IIM (Indian Institute of Metals) is a reputed institution devoted to promotion and advancement in the study, practice and research of metallurgical science and technology. It is recognised throughout the world as one of the premier metallurgical organizations.
SAE brings together all automobile enthusiasts which include Engineers, Executives from Industry, Government Officials, Academics and Students to provide them a forum to discuss the trends, new technologies and ideas for the development of the automotive industry.
ACM CSS is a community of learners and leaders who teach each other to supplement the development of the members’ college education, specifically with regards to Computer Science. The vision of PEC ACM is to provide students exposure to the wide array of topics that fall under the umbrella of the field of computer science.
The American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) founded in 1880- is a not-for-profit professional organization that enables collaboration, knowledge sharing and skill development across all engineering disciplines while promoting the vital role of the engineers in society. The ASME—PEC Students Section (one of the 500 Students Sections across many institutes around the globe) has been active on our campus since 2016.
The Student Chapter of IEEE in PEC was started in 2001 by Dr. Gurnam Singh. With 100+ active members, IEEE-PEC has been the strongest technical society not only in institute but the entire region, for years it has served as a platform, with the objective of spreading knowledge for enhancement of computer science, electrical and electronics engineers. Be it regular interactions, workshops, events or competitions, IEEE PEC has done it all. Guest lectures have been an old tradition and we have hosted Dr. Ravi Sehgal (MD, General Electric), Er. Ashish Jain (DGM, ONGC), just to name a few.
The Solar Energy Society of India (SESI), established in 1978, having its Secretariat in New Delhi, is the Indian Section of the International Solar Energy Society (ISES). Its interests cover all aspects of renewable energy, including characteristics, effects and methods of use, and it provides a common ground to all those concerned with the nature and utilization of this renewable nonpolluting resource.
Other than these we have the annual techno-cultural fest, PECfest, where different technical societies and cultural clubs organize their respective events.
All technical societies are headed by their respective Chairpersons and Vice-Chairpersons, who lead the students in organising and participating in various activities. The Chief Technical Secretary and the Joint Chief Technical Secretary oversee the working of all club efforts, as well as host and help in organizing the multi club events, ranging from the Orientation, Engineers Day, Republic Day to Annual Honors Ceremony.
