Applied Physics Lab [Lab- In charge: Mrs. A. D. Kulkarni]
The laboratory has facilities to perform undergraduate level experiments in optics, ultrasonics, electricity, semiconductor physics and electronics. Optical instruments mainly include spectrometers, mercury and sodium vapour lamps, lasers and polarimeters – which are used in the studies of interference, diffraction patterns and phenomenon of polarization. The lab possesses ultrasonic interferometers to study propagation of ultrasonic waves through liquids. During their lab course, students also study characteristics of various semiconductor diodes and other semiconductor devices such as solar cells. several CROs, set up to synthesize nanoparticles and study the Hall effect.
Chemistry Lab [Lab- In charge: Mrs. M. A. Jail]
In the Chemistry lab,the major equipments are: Distillation plant, muffle furnace, electric oven, electronic balance, colorimeter. In the first term, experiments are based on different types of volumetric analysis such as acid-base, precipitation, complexometric , redox titrations and molecular weight determination of polymer using viscometric method. Objective: Students practically realize various kinds of volumetric analysis used in testing substances like water, cement, alloys etc. In the second term experiments are based on water analysis, proximate analysis of coal, colorimetric estimations. Students realize various steps involved in water analysis and significance of coal analysis in grading the coal, as well as application of colorimetry in medical field.
Basic Civil and Environmental Engineering and Engineering Mechanics
[Ms. Manjiree Kolhatkar]
Through different practical sessions, in Civil Engineering students learn modern electronic equipments such as digital planimeter, GPS, auto level, laser level. The part of environmental Engineering covers mainly different types of pollution, remedial measures for that like disposal of solid waste, electronic waste. The practical sessions in this subject helps students to develop ability of presentation skills and group work through assignments of poster making and presentations about different topics related to environment. Engineering Mechanics is one of the basic or core subject area in engineering which bridges the gap between physical theory and its application to technology. It develops the logical thinking, analysis and mathematical skills of students. It emphasizes the application of the concepts like force systems, equilibrium, trusses, cables and friction.It also covers different types of motions of the particles, work energy and impulse moment principle for the particle. The practical part consists of related experiments and problems to be solved under the guidance of teacher for each unit.
Basic Electrical Engg. Lab [ Mr.Umesh Shinde]
Various experiments related to basic electrical Engg. subject are conducted in this lab. The electrical lab can accommodate 30 students at a time. First year students get an opportunity to perform various experiments like wiring exercises, theorem verification, effect of temperature on medium resistance of a conductor, voltage regulation and efficiency test on single phase transformer etc. Students learn the concepts of energy conservation and power saving techniques.
Language Lab [Lab-Incharge: Mrs Nisha Navare ]
The main objectives of the lab are to improve pronunciation, listening skills and other soft skills required for grooming a corporate. The digitalized lab is one where sessions are conducted using headphones and webcam that allow recording one’s pronunciation providing further scope for improvement. The audio visual software in the lab is a wonderful teaching aid for communication skill as it offers a wide range of videos and listening material for improving communication and command over the language.
