The NorthCap University (NCU), Gurugram in collaboration with Beijing Wave Spectrum Science & Technology Co. Ltd. China has recently set up first of its kind Mechanics Lab in Haryana. It is equipped with research instruments being used by IITs and which are not available in any technical college or universities in the Haryana. This collaboration brings together multidisciplinary aspect to achieve knowledge sharing, technology transfer and progress for both academics and industry.This lab is a unique model of international collaboration for a private Indian university like NCU. The Lab was inaugurated by Mr. Lyons Zhu, Managing Director, Beijing Wave Spectrum Science and Technology Co. Ltd. China, and Prof. Prem Vrat, Pro-Chancellor, Prof. of Eminence and Chief Mentor of The NorthCap University.
During the inauguration Prof. Prem Vrat said that the lab setup in collaboration with industry, plays a very important role in improving the quality of education and research, thereby changing the dimensions of learning for students at graduate and post graduate level.
The Mechanics lab has been setup with an approximate cost of USD $60,000 (INR 40,00,000) by Beijing Wave Spectrum at Mechanical Engineering Department, NCU under a five year MoU, signed between Beijing Wave Spectrum, China and The NorthCap University, Gurugram. Beijing Wave Spectrum is a Chinese company, located at Beijing, dedicated to the research and development of Vibration measurement technology, measurement and control and sensor technology. The new set up is a multidisciplinary lab with test equipment and instruments for mechanical, civil and electronics engineering disciplines. The lab has 16 research instruments relating to vibration, design and data acquisition (testing equipment, sensors with software), along with hardware updates and maintenance. This lab will be a part of Central Research Facility and will help in boosting BTech, MTech and PhD programmes at The NorthCap University, Gurugram.
Dr. Rohit Singh Lather, Associate Professor, Mechanical Engineering, NCU, facilitated the collaboration and will also; co-manage the lab and its activities along with Beijing Wave Spectrum engineers. The lab will support graduate and post graduate programs at university, provide training to students and research activities.The lab will also be used by Beijing Wave Spectrum and university as a platform to continuously improve and develop research instruments and testing systems. Mr. Lyons Zhu, Managing Director, Beijing Wave Spectrum will also be a visiting international faculty at The NorthCap university.
Mr. Lyons Zhu, Managing Director, Beijing Wave Spectrum Science and Technology Co. Ltd. China said that they are looking forward to a great collaboration with one of the leading universities of Gurgaon.
