Ms.P.Supriya GT Engineer Thermax Pvt.Ltd.

Hi, I’m Supriya, Mechanical 2014-2018 batch. I’m currently working in Thermax Pvt Ltd, Pune. During my stint at Center for Automotive technologies, I have participated in E-bike competition, BAJA-SAE and I am also one of the main organiser of IPEC-2018 event in our college. As we all know these are very prestigious events for mechanical engineering folks. I’m very lucky to be in these teams. These exposure has given me a lot of experience in real time work and also during campus selections, it has given me a unique place when comparing to others. Not just the theory knowledge but with added practical knowledge helped me in cracking a job in top MNC. As well as these events are not only knowledge gaining but a lot of fun to be in.

Mr.MounishPatel MS Aspirant (Germany)

Hello everyone, I am Mounish Patel, a proud graduate of Mechanical Engineering, B.V.R.I.T . Out of 4 great years in B.V.R.I.T, I had spent most of my time in automotive lab which laid foundation in practical understanding of latest Automotive technologies. This lab is indirectly responsible for what I am today. I was able to start my own website and my book titled “Suspensions setup of Car” is going to published soon. I really thank Mechanical engineering department for their never ending support.

“Knowledge is of no value unless you put it into practice”.

The center for automotive technologies has played a major role in my career. It has given me various opportunities to explore different fields in automobile. I have participated in three national level automotive competitions which are from three different domains namely E-moto 2017, VKC-2018 and SAE aero space design challenge 2018 which helped me to improve my practical knowledge in designing and fabricating the vehicles. Not only the practical knowledge but this centre has also thought me various important things such as team building, conflict management, understanding different perspectives, technical concepts, etc which has helped me a lot to crack through my ASHOK LEYLAND interview where I was able to answer all the questions related to my projects. I am glad that I got this opportunity to utilize the resources of this centre to build my career.

“Dream, Dare and Drive.”

These three words encapsulate my journey at Centre of Automotive Technologies (CAT). Over the course of three years at CAT, I have used my engineering acumen to face challenges, conquer my fear and realized my potential. Dedicated Faculty and state-of-art equipment facilities have assisted me in the manufacturing of E-Bike, BAJA SAE Buggy and two Go-karts. Amid, I have learned numerous skills that I bring into my experiences in the industry, and have gained countless friends and memories that continue to be the highlight of my BVRIT experience.

J Ravali GT Engineer Renault Nissan

I would always be grateful to BVRIT for providing a good start for my career. I would also like to thank faculty who are very supportive and inspiring. They always encouraged students to learn things practically.  My department encourages students to participate in different automobile events through Center for Automotive technologies where you can gain a wonderful experience and practical knowledge. My participation in projects like BAJA , E-moto really helped me to crack placement in Renault Nissan.

T.Sowmya GT Engineer John Deere

I have learned effective things from Center for Automotive technologies lab when I worked for designing and manufacturing of go-kart and Baja vehicles. The lab taught me the practical knowledge of different machining processes, different tools, design specifications, how to assemble parts and able to know the differences between the materials I used while designing based on strength, hardness, weight etc. It was allowed me to explore the practical implications in my discipline and helped for my effective learning’s to reflect on my goals and made a smooth path to place in John Deere.
