Auto-Mechanics & Motor Sport Engineering


Elan & ηvision, IIT Hyderabad in association with Entrench Electronics presents to you a workshop on Auto-mechanics & Motorsport Engineering

Have you ever got the thought of making and driving one of those Fast and Furious cars? Have you ever imagined how such a tiny IC engine is controlling everything in an automobile? Have you ever thought about what it takes to make the insanely powerful beasts that you drive in your dreams?

This workshop, conducted by Elan & ηvision, IIT Hyderabad in association with Entrench Electronics, is specifically designed to provide platform for knowledge flow between industries & institutes, create awareness among the students on these technologies, and also an opportunity to demonstrate their area of research and interact with industry people.

“The automobile engine will come, and then I will consider my life's work complete.”
- Rudolf Diesel

Venue : IIT Hyderabad
Date : 23rd and 24th September
Timing : 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM
