A good project can give your resume some much-needed recognition in the eyes of the employer or can even be an icebreaker in your interview. It can also shoot your CGPA by a few points. If you want to go for a Masters degree, you’re gonna have to prove yourself and this is where a good project can help you out in Engineering. Besides all this, doing a project can be a lot of fun too. Here are 5 cool project ideas from 5 different engineering branches to help you ace your project and create a buzz around it.
Project: Machine Learning and AI
CSE has been the most wanted engineering stream for a while now and it looks like it’s gonna stay that way too. Constant technological advancements in Computer Science have made sure students are never settled in their quest for more. Machine Learning, Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, these are all buzzwords in the field of CS right now. There’s simply nothing you can’t do with all these technologies. Few areas you can explore on this subject are Predicting temperatures, stock prices, real estate prices, box scores, etc.
Topic: Prosthetic Robotic Arm
Coming to the second most popular engineering branch ECE.
Here’s an interesting project idea - A prosthetic robotic arm for disabled people. It will be a great project and also have a lot of social value. The arm can be controlled by EMG signals and it can be moved using infrared or ultraviolet sensors. A set of these sensors are able to sense objects and distance in three-dimensional space. This is definitely a fun and different project to work on.
Branch: Civil Engineering
Topic: Climate Modelling
Most Civil Engineering students choose to do a project in fields such as RCC (Reinforced Concrete Cement), Pavement design or wastewater treatment. Climate modelling is one project you won’t see a lot of students pursue, but could be interesting.
Climate models use quantitative methods to simulate the interactions of important drivers of climate including atmosphere, oceans, land surface and ice. A climate model can successfully predict the climate of a region which in itself is responsible for a plethora of other predictions and discoveries.
Branch: Mechanical Engineering
Topic: Rapid Prototyping and 3D Printing
How awesome would it be build something of your own that looks like it was manufactured in a factory? Well, that is exactly what rapid prototyping and 3D printing are all about. Rapid Prototyping is a set of techniques used to fabricate a scale model of a physical part using three dimensional CAD (Computer Aided Design). You can use rapid prototyping to design something such as a tool or part of a machine and then later bring it to life using a 3D printer. If you are willing to work in the manufacturing sector, this is definitely something you should experiment with.
Topic: Electrical Engineering
Branch: Android Based Electrical Appliance Control
This is a fun project where a lot of advancements can be done.
It uses Android phone with a GUI (Graphical User Interface) based application installed in it that can control electrical appliances. The connection established will be Bluetooth based relay mechanism. The computations at the appliance side will be done using microcontrollers. We have all wished sometimes that the lights could switch off on their own. This is how you can make your wish come true.
