INDIAN SOCIETY OF HEATING, REFRIGERATING AND AIR CONDITIONING ENGINEERS
This is an authorized Student Chapter of the Indian Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers sponsored by ISHRAE Mumbai Chapter. It was established in Sardar Patel College of Engineering on 11th October 2007. Student Chapter is established for the purpose of advancing the arts and sciences of heating, refrigeration, air conditioning and ventilation, and the allied arts and sciences for the benefit of the general public.
This active chapter functions under the guidance of Prof. (Dr.) Roshini R. Easow who also chairs student activities. As the saying goes ‘Seeing is believing’, Student members plan a day visit to a few places of interest that will expose them to the actual reality of HVACR products and systems, designed, erected and operating in actual sites. They are taken around by a faculty advisor from the college. It is seen that the industrial visits have a lasting impression on the student minds about what they learn in college.
Besides this there are provisions for corporate sponsorship for deserving students’ project and meritorious students are encouraged in the field of HVAC with scholarships. There is also the Emerson Online University which provides online courses consisting of theoretical and practical material in HVAC system design.
Another important facet is the quiz contests arranged. The finals of the 10th ISHRAE intercollegiate engineering quiz contest were held on 10th February 2011 in central quadrangle of SPCE campus. The quiz committee comprising Professor Dr. Roshini Easow, V Krishnan, Nitin Naik, D Krishna Kumar, Vikram Murthy and the Quiz Master, B. Gautham Baliga, put together a quiz contest which was a combination of KBC and IPL. The response received was overwhelming.
Such activities keep the students interested and informed about the latest technologies in the field.
