- Deal to boost research work & material quality testing

Dhanbad, March 5: The lone state-run engineering institute of Jharkhand, Birsa Institute of Technology (BIT), Sindri, is all set to join hands with the Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (Barc) for projects including consultancies and material testing.

Both the institutes have also planned to undertake joint PhD and MTech programmes.

Initial discussions for the purpose started when a high-level team from Barc visited Sindri on February 26.

The team comprising senior Barc scientists R.N. Singh and A. Chakraborty also held discussions with the heads of all the ten engineering departments at BIT, Sindri.

The team tried to explore the possibilities of conducting joint material testing exercises. They also assessed the availability of equipment and expertise in the different departments of BIT, Sindri, for conducting joint testing of material quality.

The Barc scientists also held discussions with the students of the institute. The team was on a visit to three premier technical institutes of east India, including IIT, Guwahati, and National Institute of Technology, Durgapur, besides BIT, Sindri.

Visiting delegates also apprised the students of various career opportunities available at Barc. The team also provided details of the admission process, scholarship schemes and perks at Barc.

The institute has procured various equipment recently for all its ten undergraduate departments under the World Bank-sponsored Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme (Teqip), which can help Barc a great deal to carry out its testing projects

Students and teachers of the institute will learn a lot about conducting quality testing at Barc. The research institute, on the other hand, will be benefited as it won’t have to procure all equipment on its own to conduct the testing.
