Blocks in NSIT
Connecting block : The connecting block is the small, 2 floored block connecting the ECE/BT and COE/IT blocks. It houses a few classrooms, on the ground and first floors. Apart from that, the Mini Audi, used for many a functions in the college is situated on the second floor of this block. Room no 110 of the connecting block is kept open all day and hence is used by the college’s numerous societies like the Quiz Club, IEEE, CSI etc for their regular meets.
Block 4(ECE & BT):
Block 4 houses the ECE and BT departments. The ground, first and second floors are dedicated to the ECE division while the 3rd floor is for the BT department. On the 3rd floor there are 2 Biotechnology labs, 1 dedicated to undergraduate students and the other primarily for use by post graduate students apart from a few classrooms . Dr AK Dubey, HOD, Biotechnology, also has his office on this floor. The floors dedicated to ECE department comprise of numerous classrooms. The labs situated in this part include the PEE lab, Digital Electronics lab, Analogue Electronics lab, Communications lab. Dr Raj Senani, HOD, Electronics and Communication Engineering also has his office in this block.
Block 5(COE & IT):
The COE or IT block (Block V) is the closest to the central library but also farthest from the administrative block. The Heads of Department of COE & IT are Dr. Shampa Chakraverty & Sangeeta Sabharwal respectively. The CAD & GC labs are popular sources for wifi connectivity. The table tennis & gym rooms are also located in the COE block and are popular destinations.
Here are some of the important labs & their respective room numbers :
Real Time Lab – 134
Mobile Computing Lab – 140
Software Engineering Lab – 108
CAD Lab – 137
Database Lab – 110
GC Lab – 124
Block 6 (ICE & MPAE)– This block is for the ICE and MPAE departments. There is no clear demarcation between classrooms for ICE department and the MPAE department. All the applied sciences labs like the Physics, Chemistry, Applied Mechanics and the Machines labs are situated in this block. The rooms dedicated to Engineering Drawing and Machine Drawing are also located on the first floor of this block. Dr AP Mittal, HOD, Instrumentation and Control Engineering and Dr Sachin Maheshwari, HOD, Manufacturing Processes and Automation Engineering have their offices in block 6. The Moksha ground is located behind block 6.
Admin block : The basement of the admin block has a branch of State Bank of India along with a branch of Andhra Bank, Post Office and also a SBI ATM. The second floor of the admin block has the Board Room, Professor Raj Senani’s (Director, NSIT) office and the Main Audi of the college. Adjoining the Main Audi is also a Green Room. On the third floor Dr BN Mishra’s (Chairman, Board of Governors, NSIT) office is located.
The library block once housed the students of IIIT before they got their own campus in Okhla. It also had its own canteen which catered to IIIT students. Now, the classes of about 3-4 sections are held here. Placement exams are also held here. Even though it’s farther away from the main admin area, the students here don’t complain. The operating lift & air conditioning in every room is relief enough. Also, the sports complex lies right in front of the block and it also has its very own parking lot. Even though this part of the college is pretty desolate, what else could one want?
The workshop is located near the library block and close to the sports complex. The main shops existing are the fitting, welding, sheet metal, foundry and machine shops. First year students perform the former four jobs in their first semester and are graded accordingly during the external practical & viva. The main purpose of the workshop is to instill a sense of discipline into one’s mind. It’s aimed at introducing a general idea of how things work in the manufacturing domain.
This workshop involves the cutting of metals and then fitting the parts accordingly to achieve a simple design. With the use of hacksaws, the metal piece is cut and then filed to make the surface smooth. Make sure you’ve eaten well, because this is definitely one of the most draining of jobs.
The fusion of metal pieces that are produced in the fitting shop takes place here to produce larger metal pieces by heating & subsequently cooling the workpiece. Working in the intense heat, sweat is sure to flow like a waterfall. Make sure you carry an apron/lab coat. Also, wear the safety goggles/helmet while welding or the rays might harm your eyes.
3. Sheet metal
The cutting of sheet metal into intricate shapes and then subsequently forming folds & joints in the sheet metal takes place in this shop. Definitely one of the easier workshops, but don’t take it too lightly either.
Metal is casted into different shapes by pouring the molten metal into a mold, waiting for it to solidify and then subsequently removing the mold material. One of the less tiresome jobs, but definitely the dirtiest considering that the mold material is sand. Fortunately, you don’t have to cast the metal itself but only form the mold. Foundry isn’t tested during the practicals but questions may be asked during the viva.
