Tune your heads, fuel the ideas and explore your hidden talents at MASCHINELL`12, a
National Level Technical Symposium organized by the Association of Mechanical
Engineers (AME) on behalf of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Tagore
Engineering College on the 10th of August, 2012 at the college campus. Comprising
of various events, Maschinell’12 is an attempt to bring out the best of talents
among blooming Mechanical Engineers and aims at tickling the young technical
brains to showcase their unique ideas. This competition is exclusively for
those with a passion for innovations.
The event is open to all Engineering students from all over the country. Maschinell’12 is ready to fire
up on 10th August 2012.
We basically divide the events into two main
1. Registered Events
2. On spot Events
1. Paper Presentations:
Abstract should not exceed 250 words. It should be submitted on or before 31ST July 2012
and mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.All abstract will be scrutinized by the
scientific panel. Abstract selected will be informed to the presenters by 3rd
August 2012.Presentation material should be in power point presentation(PPT).
Duration for paper presentation is maximum 10 minutes. There will be Q&A
segment. The selection committee will select the paper for presentation and
judge’s decision will be final for the award of prize.
Ø Each slide maximum number of lines: 8 – 10.
Ø Lines well spaced and legible to audience(Font
Ø Any audio support needed should be informed
before for feasibility
2. Water Rocketry:
All competitors should make their water rockets and launch them at the designated places.Materials
for making water rocket will not be provided by organizing team. Each
competitor should make 2 rockets, one as the main rocket and the other as a back-up.
The competitors are encouraged to be creative in designing nose cones and fins
of their water rockets.
Each competitor will be given opportunities to conduct 2 launches. The rank
placement will be based on the distance from the launch point to the point the
rocket hit. If the impact point is outside the dedicated zone, no point will be
awarded. A team which travels more distance after two launches will be declared
the winner of the Launch Competition.
3. Nitro Race
First of all the cars
would be examined by our team and if any found to be unsuitable for race would
In Preliminary round all the teams can have trails for getting an idea of the
race track. The time will be noted by our organizing team which may be used if
there is a tie between two teams in the next round.
In Quarter final round, all teams raced will have TIME-TRAIL, the top 4 teams would
be selected for the Semi-final.. (No.Of.teams may vary, if there is many teams)
(the track challenges may be varied at this level)
In Semi final round, 4 teams qualified from the quarter final would be raced in
2 segments( 2 in each) and from this the top 2 teams would qualify for the
In Final round, the top 2 teams would race together and from this the person
who finishes the required laps in least time would be the winner.

Two Days Workshop on “RECENT TRENDS IN MANUFACTURING PROCESSES”
7th & 8th of August 2012
The workshop deals with the recent developments in
manufacturing processes which is developing through constant research and
industrial demands. the field of manufacturing has developed a lot with a help
of recent manufacturing techniques, so it is neccesary that everyone in the
mechanical engineering needs to know about it, for which this woul be great
The course aims in bringing in knowledge from all platforms, so that the
participants would know about the processes of manufacturing in various perspectives.
The workshop is open for UG/PG graduates, Faculty members of AICTE approved
Engineering colleges and practicing Engineers specialized in Mechanical,
