An Industrial visit was organized to the Regional Remote Sensing Centre (RRSC) of Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO), Nagpur by the ETC Dept., for the 8th semester students on 16th March 2017. Around 100 students and 5 faculty members partook in this Industrial Visit. The motive was to educate students about the ongoing government efforts to transform India into a digitally empowered society.
The visit commenced with a theory class on information about Satellite Communication, different ISRO satellites and their activities of remote sensing, followed by demonstration of the BHUVAN software. Models of the First Indian Satellite ‘ARYABHATT’, PSLV, GSLV, and a video about Gateway to space was shown to the students.
The overall experience was enthralling, enabling students to appreciate the complex working and tireless efforts of our scientists. The inspiration derived was worth the time and energy spent. This visit also displayed the quality of Image Processing in the area of Remote Sensing and the scope of Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering in this field.
