EPIC Highlights

Terna Engineering Product Innovation Center

Welcome to Terna Engineering Product Innovation Center (EPIC), an impressive 12,000 square foot Facility located in engineering college building

At EPIC, all members of the TEC community can learn the skills necessary to design and build their own ideas, gain invaluable hands-on experience in design, prototyping, and project development as an integral part of a strong overall engineering education.

EPIC is aligned with the mission of the Terna Engineering College to create societal engineers who are prepared to step up to the ever growing need in the India, and abroad, for industry leaders who understand how to develop and manufacture innovative new products in a global environment.

With our best in class facilities and equipment, special training & guidance and access to industry experts, students in EPIC get exposed to real time project environment. The center is open to all TEC students, who are looking for project based learning, real time project environment and participation in product development contest.

Texas Instruments Innovation Center:

Texas Instrument Innovation center is established at Terna Engineering College under “TI University Program” in November 2017.

Texas Instruments University Program

The TI University Program is the intersection between TI technology, educators and the engineers of tomorrow. Our advanced analog and embedded processing technologies fuel the passions of students and educators in university labs worldwide. Established in 1982, the TI University Program is a global program dedicated to supporting educators, researchers and students in facilitating the inclusion of TI analog and embedded processing in engineering classrooms, teaching and research labs, textbooks, design projects and course curriculum.

TI university program aimed at establishing a collaborative bridge between corporate and colleges with the objective of making students in the Engineering Colleges have a greater hands on experience in technologies related to :-

e-Yantra Project is an initiative by IIT Bombay that aims to create the next generation of embedded systems engineers with a practical outlook to help provide practical solutions to some of the real world problems. The Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) sponsors E-Yantra under the National Mission for ICT in Education (NMEICT) program.
IIT Bombay envisages the ‘e-Yantra’ platform to harness the intellectual talent of young India to create utility based robotic applications for usage across variety of applications such as: agriculture, manufacturing, defense, home, city maintenance and services industries. The overall mission is to grow a rich eco-system of ideas and applications that can propel India’s growth curve and productivity through intelligent funneling of robotics in daily living built upon an existing pool of knowledge developed by students working on such projects at engineering colleges in the area of embedded systems.
We have taken an initiative to setup e-Yantra Robotics Lab under e-Yantra Lab Set-up Initiative (eLSI) by IIT Bombay. SBPCOE e-Yantra Robotics Lab trains the students in embedded systems and micro-controller programming by engaging them through the Project Based Learning (PBL) mode.

Benefits of e-Yantra robotics lab to students:

  • Awareness of embedded systems, robotics technology and mechatronics.
  • It provides platform to design, develop, program and test of robots to various applications.
  • Students can participate in national and international robotics competitions.
  • Improve BE projects with help of e-Yantra open source community.
  • Exposure to job opportunities in robotics.
  • Encourage to use robots to solve real life problems.
