Bringing in cutting-edge technology

Good Facilities

The students of the telecommunication engineering department of BMS College of Engineering were happy that the college was recently able to set up a ZTE 3G lab, with the assistance of ZTE Corporation. The idea behind this was to provide an opportunity to aspiring engineering students to get practical exposure to the latest telecommunication technology.

By doing this, the college hopes to impart training to faculty and students in the domain of wireless communication technology in real-time and give them industrial exposure. This facility is open to students from BMSCE and other colleges as well. The next phase is aimed at starting a postgraduate programme in the domain of wireless communication and establishing a research centre in the department.

A three-day workshop on ‘Telecom and Technical Management Overview’ was also conducted for the final-year students of various engineering colleges.

Students were more than excited to get this sort of exposure and say that the trainers from ZTE were very helpful in simplifying things for them. Amulya, a seventh-semester student, says that the three-day workshop was extremely beneficial for the students as they got an overview of the latest equipment.

“The trainers from ZTE gave us an introduction on how to go about things in the lab. We had a practical session, which helped clarify most of the doubts we had. This equipment is very expensive and we are glad that we are able to work with it,” she says.

Anisha, a seventh-semester student, says that having the equipment at their disposal inside the college is a good opportunity. “We are working on a project based on the configuration of 3D services. Earlier, when the equipment was not there in the lab, we had to go out for the research work. But after the equipment has been brought in, things have become much easier. The best part is that we are learning everyday and getting practical experience,” she says.

Nithanth, another student, says that this is a good opportunity for all those students who want to go ahead with telecommunication engineering. “I am glad that out of all the VTU-affiliated colleges, our college was able to get the equipment,” he sums up.
