CU Student develops an app based battery operated cycle


Jai Chachra - A Neoteric Generation Entrepreneur
& his innovation ‘Just Charge’-an app based  battery operated cycle

Entrepreneurship is essentially the philosophy of an innovating mind, a nouveau culture and  a creative mindset.  It is the ability to create an impact in whatever one does in an enterprise in the face of constraints, risks and ambiguity. And this is precisely how the journey of Jai Chachra started.  He joined Chandigarh University as a student of graduation in Computer Science Engineering (with specialisation in Cloud Computing). As a freshman in the very first year, he was pulled up by one of the faculty members for not carrying any register or pen to write notes.  To admonish him, the teacher went on to hand him the cap of a pen to write with. This instead, sparked the thinking terrain of his mind and Jai came up with a unique innovation of a 2cms pen that could be worn on a finger.  This wearable pen is shaped like a ring and can write 500 pages in one cartridge. All because he does not wish to carry a pen around – so just wear it!  It would take 2 to 3 days to train a person to practice writing with it. This innovative product is today a boon for the differently abled persons who may have lost a finger or a hand or is using his feet for writing! Jai’s patented ‘Finger Wearable Pen’ takes the pain out of writing for those who may not have the essential appendages for writing. 



With this start, Jai went on to innovate an ‘Accidental Survival Kit - Rakshak’. This idea came up because way back in 2017 only cars costing upwards of 18 lakhs had airbags safety option. So, using an enhanced version of micro control units, he designed a system whereby a cars driver seat area was sensitised to alcohol vapors. Thus, when a driver who has consumed alcohol wishes to drive a car, this device would apply an AI based system and the car would be restricted to travel upto 18kms per hour only! Of course he is the patent holder for this product too!

By the time he completes 3nd year of graduation, Jai already has 5 patents in his pocket - all thanks to his mentor and life coach Dr Sanjeet Singh who has been handholding him, egging him on and ensuring he does not buckle under challenges.   His dream project “Pet-It” was literally evolved in his dream where he visualised himself being recognised as one of the Fortune 500 qualifiers for a ‘Pet Tracking solution’. To follow this dream he actually evolved, patented and popularised “Pet-It” – a smart pet ecosystem that can be attached to a  pets collar. This helps for scheduling vet visits, food timing, and any other activities that need to be followed for the pet. All pet lovers find this a unique and pet care friendly product. With several companies in the US chasing this product, Jai is completely grounded in the knowledge that all entrepreneurship is not always about running a business.

Jai strongly believes that every problem has a solution and applies this philosophy to evolve products as a solution to existing problems. Thus, Jai was never inclined for a ‘placement drive’ nor did he join the CSE programme with Chandigarh University to be placed with a corporate big-wig. As a self-motivated innovator, he feels that today, no one accepts you because of your visiting card.  You have to build your reputation and its public acceptance step by step.  Infact, no entrepreneur starts with infinite resources. They are just persistent in their resolve.

This resolve led him to innovate ‘Just Charge’ – an app based battery operated cycle. This was aimed as a solution for hostel students on the campus who have to walk extensive distances during a day, from their hostel to their department - to the administration block and to the dispensary and back to hostel. All this walking in the Indian summers was very disconcerting  for Jai and he researched alternatives like ordinary bicycles, electric skate boards (as seen in the popular movie ‘Koi Mil Gaya’) with a handle and hover boards from the perspective of affordability, usage over uneven terrain, the weight it may be able to transport and battery life.

As a sophomore at the university, he reached out to the seniors and peers in the department of mechanical engineering to help him shape his innovation. The entire journey was  replete with changing, making adjustments, accepting errors and modifying by the minute.

The entrepreneur in Jai accepted that he will not get it right always so he reset his course correction to bounce back higher. He manufactured 10 units of his ‘Just Charge’ and started talking to resorts if they wished to offer independence to their guests instead of golf carts and the idea clicked!  He has currently offered to manufacture initial stock for the hostel students of his alma mater. He will further take this up with universities spread over sprawling vast spaces.

Jai keeps re-imagining  possibilities. He is not waiting for a public tag or an honorary badge -  he just keeps persisting in his efforts with the larger purpose of solution finding.

Inspiring Story of CU Alumni

As a troubled teenager, I had to undergo various stigmas and struggles to live up to the hopes and expectations of my parents and myself. Like every aspiring young guy, oblivious of realities, I worked hard in hope of making to the IIT’s and securing my future. It wasn’t until I graduated from my senior secondary education that the realities came crashing down upon me. Unaware of the rush to grab the handful of opportunities on avail, I stepped out of school. It was then that the harsh reality kept weighing me down and considering the race for IIT’s, it seemed a distant and an unreal dream.    

My father used to say,”ਪੁੱਤ ਸਾਡੀਆਂ ਉਮੀਦਾਂ ਤੇਰੇ ਤੋਂ ਹੀ ਨੇ, ਆਈ.ਆਈ.ਟੀ ਦੇ ਚੱਕਰ 'ਚ ਹੱਥੋਂ ਸਮਾਂ ਨਾ ਗਵਾ ਲਈਂ|” Initially, I used to ignore him but couldn’t deny the fact that time is the most important aspect of life and I was running out of it. Also, it is said that we may not realize it in the present but with time we surely learn and realize how important that guidance was and how lucky we were to have made that decision during those times.
The Pandemic, COVID-19 has been the 21st century’s biggest challenge to our world and threatened whole of the humanity but on the other hand it has also made us realize the value of what we have and has reminded us about our ignorance and negligence as well. Wishing to make it to the IIT’s, I listened to my parents’ advise and started looking for better and broader options for my higher studies and got enrolled into Chandigarh University. Everything was going well. The mentorship is great; I have made friends and moments for life, my educational aspirations were all being fulfilled with regular workshops, study tours, seminars, and what not.

Unfortunately, COVID-19 happened and our country went into complete lockdown for what seemed to be an indefinite period. Being in the last year of my graduation, my dreams again came crashing down as just before the final term everything was halted. I wondered how would I complete my syllabus, attend all those workshops, seminars and graduate with flying colours. I wondered if even exams were possible and if I would graduate in this year itself.
These factors had a deep impact on my mind but there’s someone always looking after you. In my case, while I was staying home being cautious of the disease and worried about my future on the same time, it was my University who didn’t let me down. I have never made better use of Internet than with Chandigarh University, who has been holding online lectures, webinars, assignments, discussions in the most emphatic manner. Battered by the pandemic, I can now truly look at life in altogether a distinct and an inspiring way.

Chandigarh University comes-up with Special Serving Trolley to maintain social distancing


Chandigarh University comes-up with Special Serving Trolley to maintain social distancing



Chandigarh University “CU-AID” campaign kicks off in Tricity; Staff and Management donates one day salary for COVID-19 crisis

Social Distancing is the key that would help India to stop itself from entering into the third stage of community transmission and recently the Union Government instructed States and UT’s to observe social distancing while serving the poor. Underlining the importance of the call, Chandigarh University Gharuan has designed a special serving trolley which is being used by the volunteers of university to serve cooked meals twice a day to the poor and needy in the villages of Mohali.



“One day I watched a news on television where some NGO was distributing food to poor and suddenly there was big rush near the distribution truck barely maintain any social distancing,” said Rakesh Kumar Negi, a technical & maintenance supervisor at University, who is the brain behind conceptualizing the design of the serving trolley. The scene disturbed me that night and finally I decided to do something about it, he added. The next morning, the technician designed the serving trolley which he made from a waste cooler stand that was available in the university junkyard. “The trolley can handle 30 kg of food at one time and is useful to maintain the necessary precautions while distributing the food” added Negi.   



Ever since the lockdown began, Chandigarh University has been running a campaign “CU-AID” under which food is being distributed for the poor, daily labour and needy in the nearby villages. Currently the university community mess is preparing and distributing cooked meals for more than 2000 persons and it plans to extend the distribution to needy persons to Chandigarh by next week.
“While the doctors and health workers are tireless efforts in protecting the precious human lives, it is time for the engineers to come-up with innovative ideas that can be used to develop products or technologies which can be helpful in the pandemic crisis” said Satnam Singh Sandhu, Chancellor Chandigarh University. Serving trolley designed by our staff member is one such small step to help humanity while keeping in mind all the advisories issued by the government, he added. 



Chancellor CU further said that, “The staff and management of Chandigarh University has constituted a campaign “CU-AID” under which funds have been generated by the university staff as we have donated one day salary for helping the poor and needy persons”. The funds are being used to run a community kitchen which is preparing and distributing food, free hand sanitizers and face masks. “We are also in the process of building a 100 bed isolation ward facility at our university hostel which will be fully equipped with all the medical facilities” added Chancellor.

Working from Home amidst COVID-19 Pandemic Threat




Working from Home amidst COVID-19 Pandemic Threat: Necessities for Working Professionals
Harkamal Singh Bajwa, Chandigarh University

An unusual pneumonia broke out in China last year, which has now forced most of the world into lockdown. The unusual pneumonia, later discovered to be CoronaVirus or COVID-19 has turned pandemic leading to temporary shutdowns of Industries, educational institutions and many other commercial & non-commercial sectors. While staying cautious and indoors during these times is of utmost importance, however, it cannot be denied that the pandemic is affecting economies in many different ways.

Work From Home


The seriousness of COVID-19 has forced organizations to ask their employees to stay indoors and work from their respective homes. The internet connectivity makes sure that your absence in your office doesn’t matter and you can work reliably from home, however, there are certain factors concerned with “work from home”, which might have been left unnoticed and unexplored as the crisis approached and compelled us indoors. With this article, we shall discuss some necessary factors one needs to keep in mind while working from home.

           1.)    Punctuality: Working from Home keeps you in your comfort zone most of the times, as you are not being watched or under continuous surveillance of those CCTV’s cameras at your office. The absence of someone to look upon you does motivate you to work according to your own wishes. However, it is important to be understood that an emergency situation has forced us into a lockdown and while it has caused your organization a great deal of damage, it may also directly affect you and your career. Thus, staying punctual at home is important as well. Sign in and sign out on time and also make sure you do not skip your break.

           2.)    Fixed Work Schedule: Your organization must have passed on necessary instructions onto you before initiating ‘Work from Home’. As most of the organizations go, they must also have made you realize that they were doing you a favor by allowing you to work from home. However, this is not the truth. Remember, you put in all your energy and efforts to bring out the best outcomes for the company you’re working for and during times as these, it is the responsibility of the organization to take care of their employees. Some organizations pose this a liberty for their employees and in return get them to work round the clock. Therefore, you must ensure that you’ve a fixed time schedule, just like the office hours. Begin and end your work on time and spend the rest of your personal time, the way you wish to.

      3.)    Workspace: Designating yourself a workplace is crucial while working from home. If you want to work like a professional you are, you must ensure your workplace looks the same, irrespective of who watches you or who doesn’t. At home, we are usually surrounded by our family members or anyone who’s not from your office(in general) and does not understand the importance of what you’re doing. Affected outcomes by working from home raise questions and suspicions as well. Hence, designate a proper workplace which complements both you and your organization and does not affect your productivity.

           4.)    Avoid distractions: Although, home is where we find peace, but in case of Work, working from home can provide some serious distractions. First of all, we are always in our homely comfort zone and then there’s our family and other households, one would normally tend to during their off-days. However, we got to remember the fact that we are ‘Working from Home’, where work is supposed to be the priority during the working hours. You are not supposed to switch tasks in between or be doing too many things like making lunch, watching your favorite movie or anything apart from the task at hand.
  
           5.)    Dress Properly: Now, you must be thinking that not dressing the part would do you no harm as you’re working from home and no one’s going to judge even if you have your Pyjamas on. Of course, no one will see you working like this, however, it has marked effect on your productivity and motivation to work. You may sit or put on your attire more comfortably at home as compared to your regular office, nonetheless, make sure you’re presentable enough in case you receive some professional or business video call.                       

Working from home can be very liberating but this freedom of working on your own can reduce your productivity and capabilities to bring out the best outcomes, the reason you were employed in the first place. Put in your best efforts and time as you would do on a normal working day at the office and don’t let anything affect the professional in you.

Why Aerospace Engineering at Chandigarh University


Aerospace Engineering
Engineering the Engineer

The role of the engineer is to explore the realm of the unknown by systematically searching for new solutions to practical problems. Engineering is less about knowing (or not knowing), and more about doing; it is about dreaming how the world could be, rather than studying how it is. Aerospace engineering is similar to the journey of explorations and engineering. There are several perks of working in aerospace engineering for people that feel a close connection with things that take to the skies, or even to outer space.



Why Aerospace Engineering?
Below are the few features of aerospace engineering that will help you quantify the benefits of Aerospace engineering field.

Excellent Renumerations
One of the perks of working in aerospace engineering is the excellent compensation that engineers in this field enjoy. Aerospace engineers are very well compensated when compared to the average income that an average employed Indian makes, which means this field is an excellent one to get into for those that are concerned about their financial security.

The Opportunity to Innovate
Aerospace engineers are some of the first people that get to create and work with new technologies that are used on aircraft, spacecraft, and satellites. These engineers are responsible for innovations that help make the world a better place. For example, an aerospace engineer might work on a new technology that allows spacecraft to fly longer, which means that people can find out more information about outer space to help the future of society. Aerospace engineers also test new prototypes for aircraft, which means they are able to help make travel around the world much easier.

The Ability to Apply Inherent Abilities
Engineers in most fields, including aerospace, need to have a strong background in math and science. For people that have a natural ability in these fields, becoming an aerospace engineer is an excellent way to capitalize on this type of background to allow a person to do a job that fits well with their natural abilities. If you are someone that is very good at advanced mathematics or science, aerospace engineering is an excellent field to get into.

High Demand
If you are a certified, highly-trained aerospace engineer, you can find a job in several different places. Government organisations will always be looking to hire aerospace engineers: this includes agencies inside and outside of India. Because spacecraft and aircraft are involved in so many other industries, from transportation to travel, you can also look for a job at a private company. Overall there is a steady demand for their services in different industries all around the world.

Hands-On Work
One of the best perks of working in aerospace engineering is the ability to work with live prototypes or other devices that will be used during live flights. Whether it is a new engine on a passenger plane or a new type of satellite that will be deployed in space to find information about the solar system, aerospace engineers often get to perform hands-on work that allows them to interact with some of the most sophisticated scientific devices in the world. This is a privilege that is reserved for engineers: few others get to work with this type of sophisticated technology.

If you have considered all of the perks of working in aerospace engineering and have decided that it is the career for you, your next step is to pursue sufficient education. We at Chandigarh University provide you a wide range of engineering education in an environment that pursues excellence and discovery. University Institute of Engineering (UIE), Chandigarh University was ranked 16th among the Top Engineering Institutes of India by The Outlook Magazine. Join Chandigarh University and emerge career ready by learning form the best minds and develop a learning experience and a career of immense quality.

Alumni Success story - Airlines Tourism and Hospitality Management

Alumni Success Story

#Learn & Earn #DreamCareer

If you can build something in your imagination, you're at least halfway to making it real. Once you've planted the seeds, they never go away. All they can do is grow. Life is really one big experiment. Sometimes your theory proves true and you get the outcome you expected. Sometimes it proves wrong. But you learn and you keep tinkering. Finding a dream career isn't an exact science. That means you'll probably have to try — and even fail — at a few things before you find paying work that you love or you can just stick to the job you know (and hate). It’s up to you.
