Centre for Mind to Market

The M2M centre was inaugurated on August 15, 2017 with the Idea wall, demonstration of IOT based solutions for Rain detection, Climate control and programmable Lego for obstacle detection and line follower.

About the Centre

The centre for Mind 2 Market (MMC) was conceptualised and approved in May, 2016 with the objective to provide a seamless and integrated centre that would enable the NITIE students to visualise, translate and transfer their ideas and prototypes into successful solutions designed to improve the productivity and efficiency of the industry.

Providing Cross- functional clarity and building multidisciplinary capabilities in its students become a foremost differentiator for NITIE. This can be achieved by creating a seamless facility that integrates the various facets of product and process development.

Such an infrastructure would validate the multitude of dimensions and perspective of preliminary concept and convert into a successful process and product. MMC hosts a multitude of facilities accessible for NITIE’s students to work on their thoughts and create successful prototypes. MMC stimulates student creativity and help translate their ideas into implementable action- product, process or business model development.

Setup in 2016-17, the objective of MMC is to provide a seamless and integrated centre that would enable the NITIE students to visualise and transfer and transfer their ideas and prototypes into successful solution designed to improve the productivity and efficiency of the industry. MMC provides opportunity to the students and researchers for hands-on training and research using cutting edge tools like 3D experience platform, IOT, Lego Automation.

    • Internet of Things Workshop

      A two day workshop was conducted by Embedded Techno solution on 20th and 21st November 2017 for batch of 30 students.
      Python programming with raspberry pi, programming and work with UART protocol example Bluetooth, working with I2C protocol and GUI with Tkinter are some topics covered in workshop.

    • Workshop on Dassault 3D Experience

      Three day workshop on Dassault 3D experience platform was conducted by EDS Technology on 15th, 16th and 17th March on introduction to CATIA, INNOVIA and DELMIA. About 18 students participated in this workshop.

    • Hackathon

      The hackathon on lab automation was conducted under Mind To Market centre on 24th February 9.30 PM to 25th February 3.00 AM, 2018. In all 25 students registered and 18 were present. Students were divided into 4 groups. Each group is given a problem statement. Following are the names of the problem statement.
      To design a security system which will allow authorised access to a door.
      Lab automation for switching light and fans automatically.
      Remotely operated home automation using a smartphone
      Automatic water tank filling system
      For exploring the topic each group was given 30 mins time for finding the application and component required. Each group leader explained their ideas about how they are going to proceed. Components were provided to all the groups and 4 hours’ time was given.
