Prototype and modelling Laboratory established in 2021 at BIT Gurugulam, with a cost estimate of
Rs. 1.5 crores. It provides students with an overview of design for projects, as well as
opportunities in creative product design and community service. The science of product making
starts with ideation. Students develop ideas for product development and work in teams. Students
enhance creativity and experience fundamental aspects of the product development process,
including determining customer needs, brainstorming, estimation, sketching and modeling, concept
development, design aesthetics, detailed design, and prototyping. As students work on their
product, they are also tasked with finding a creative way to present their developed product.
They perform skits to introduce their designs to their peers. These skits help hone
communication skills that will be instrumental as their academic career progresses. One of our
main goals with this skill training is to get students excited about engineering. The hands-on,
physical experiences in the training have helped to understand the theory much better.
