Since 1998, Christian College of Engineering and Technology (CCET), Bhilai has left no stone unturned when it comes to securing the future of its students. A plethora of programs like guest lectures, industrial visits, conferences, seminars and workshops are organized by CCET to bridge the gap between industries and academics. In this sequence a workshop on “PLC and Industrial Automation and its Job Prospects” was organized by Electronics and Telecommunication (ET&T) Engineering department under the tutelage of their HOD, Dr Mina Mishra at CAD/CAM laboratory for students of all semesters. The industrial expert invited for this workshop was Mr Santosh Kumar, Deputy Manager, Sky Technologies. in the day long workshop he covered both the theoretical as well as programming part of PLC and Industrial Automation. In the first session he educated the students about the basics of programmable logic circuits and industrial automation techniques. He said that PLCs are highly adaptable and advanced devices used for the purpose of industrial automation. He said that Programmable logic controllers (PLC’s) permit hardware control devices such as relays, timers, counters, and drum controllers (sequencers) to be replaced by programmable solid-state components and programmed instructions, to do so, a ladder program, consisting of a set of instructions representing the logic to be followed by the PLC, is developed, entered, and downloaded to the PLC. In the second session he taught programming of logic circuits to students by using Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) system. The vote of thanks was proposed by Dr Abhishek Shrivastava, Associate Professor, ET&T dept. The students of ET&T and learned the nuances of industrial innovations with zeal and were very interested in any such programs in future. The Executive Vice Chairman of CCET Fr Jose K Varghese and the Principal, Dr Dipali Soren congratulated Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering dept for successful organization of this workshop and extended their well wishes to the participants.
