At the end of the program, three different projects were made, viz., Automatic bottle plant, Automatic batch mixing plant and water treatment plant controlled by PLC. All these projects covered a lot of benefits like low power consumption, low operational cost, less maintenance, accuracy and many more.
The Director GITS, Prof. Vikas Misra, interacted with students and emphasized that, engineers who stick on to automation field have had the most fruitful and long lasting career. With experience, it creates an unmatchable demand in this industry such that the automation engineer gains full control in this sector with healthy remuneration.
