Department of Mechanical Engineering is hosting Fulbright Professor

isms | 04 August, 2009 14:08

The Department meeting held on August 3rd 2009 has welcomed Prof. Yogendra Jonchhe as Fulbright scholar. The meeting was attended by Prof. Dr. Bhola Thapa, Dean at School of Engineering, Dr. Bim Prasad Shrestha, HOD, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Mr. Binod Raj Siwakoti, UG Coordinator and other faculty members. 

Prof. Jonchhe has signatory contribution in the promotion of Mechanical Engineering Technology in New York State for last 30 years of academic involvement as a faculty member in State University of New York (SUNY) Alfred State College.

Prof. Jonchhe is recipient of the Outstanding Research Activities Award from SUNY, Colleges of Technology, and Research Council. It was based on his applied research activities such as involvement in Gleasman Stepless Geared Transmission research, development & testing, Electric Car Research Project, Diesel fuel additives research, Ethanol blended fuels research, Biodiesel fuel analytical study, automotive emission research and investigation of hydraulic turbines.

Prof. Jonchhe has been very active with New York State Engineering Technology Association (NYSETA) for the last 25 years. He has hosted NYSETA meeting at Alfred State College in the year of 2007 with the key responsible of making keynote speech, technical sessions, vendors and industrial tours.

Besides his involvement in New York state, Prof. Jonchhe has landmark contribution of international educational activities, he has undertaken similar assignments in 1996-97 as  Professor/Consultant Institute of Technology Tun Hussein Onn(ITTHO) Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, Batu Pahat, Johor, Malaysia through Alfred State College under contract from MUCIA (Midwestern Universities Consortium In America) led by Purdue University with World Bank funding. The assignment involved teaching, laboratory and curriculum development which also proved to be a great professional development and scholarly activity.

Currently, Prof. Jonchhe is directly involved in teaching and research work at Department of Mechanical Engineering at Kathmandu University where he is teaching Engineering Mechanics for undergraduate students and Internal Combustion Engine for graduate students. He has strong enthusiasm to develop applied research in the field of bio based energy such as Bio fuel at Kathmandu University during his stay in Nepal.

The department of Mechanical Engineering at Kathmandu University feels greatly privileged and honored to host such distinguished personalities from US academia.

Last year, Prof. Rama S. Gorla from Cleveland State University made significant contribution to this department under same program, which eventually brought fruitful collaboration between Kathmandu University and Cleveland State University through Memorandum of understanding signed by both the Universities.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering highly appreciates the support and trust extended to this department by US Government, Fulbright commission and the citizen of United States of America.

Final Year Mechanical Engineering students are back after completion of their internship in Thailand

isms | 03 August, 2009 13:52

Industrial Training introduced at Kathmandu University refers to professional experience that is relevant to professional development prior to their graduation. It has been a great opportunity for the students to learn about the industry, to establish important contacts and most importantly, to seed the beginnings for their career in chosen profession.

 

Department of Mechanical Engineering of Kathmandu University initiated a completely new fashion of exposing its students to an international arena through its credit-course industrial training program from this year. As per the regular course of the Undergraduate Final year, five students representing Department of Mechanical engineering were provided an opportunity to work as an internee at Asian Institute of Technology and CP Group of Companies, in Thailand.

Sushil Tandukar and Nishant Gautam of B.E. in Mechanical Engineering Final year worked as an internee Engineer at AIT from 1st July- 31st July, 2009 focusing on the topic “Performance Analysis of AIT Model Gasifier Stove-A case study in context of Nepal” under the direct supervision of Prof. Shivappan Kumar, the Dean of School of Environment, Resources and Development (SERD), AIT. The students had done their final year project on the similar topic at KU.

Three of the Final Year Mechanical Engineering students (Abhinav Pradhan, Prabij Joshi and Dipen Manadhar) also completed their 1 month internship in the leading Multinational Industry of Thailand Charoen Pokphand Group of Companies. There they had an oppurtunity to work with Thai Engineers for the construction of Asias’ largest Rice Mill factory that is being erected in Industrial State of Thailand near Bangkok. The students were directly involved in the Civil, Mechanical andElectrical component of the industry.

An experience of students:

Abhinav Pradhan “We find this internship as the most important and the perfect step for our career development. We would like to thank Our Prof. Bim P. Shrestha for initiating this step and for his fabulous co-ordination; Dr. Panamas for helping us in each and every time in Thailand, all the staff of the Charoen Pokphand Engineering Co. Ltd. for the helpful and co-operative nature during our stay in Thailand and lastly Prof. Surin Phongsupramit Head of the Solid Mechanics at Mechaincal Engineering Department in Chulalongkorn University for the lecture about the life after the studies.We were given a great opportunity to work in the construction of Asia’s’ the biggest Rice Mill Factory. There we learned about their working style, Machines, Plant Layout and the life style of Thai Engineers. At last I would like to say that Kathmandu University has started the perfect direction for the student future.”
