Encouraged by the activities of IEDC, several of our students have turned entrepreneurs and set up start ups. A few shining examples are :
Vats IT Solution - A project by two of our students already recognized as a virtual incubatee of T-TBI.
Triraptor Technologies - Founded by our three B Tech students, already completed two applications for official use and aims to register as a company soon.
Tatkraft Innovaions - Co-founded by four Electrical Engineering students, the company has been incubated with Start Up Village , Kalamassery. The project aims to rectify the non-uniformity of the renewable energy sources by introducing a ‘Smart Transformer’
Artificial Intelligence Labz (AI Labz) - Founded by a B Tech student is included in T-TBI incubation.
SSET houses a MINI-FAB LAB “SSET FABERSPACE” that equips the most modern and state of art facilities for students, faculties or enthusiastic ‘fabers’, to dream, design and convert their innovative ideas into reality. To be a FABLAB means connecting to a global community of learners, educators, technologists, researchers, makers and innovators-a knowledge sharing network that spans 30 countries and 24 time zones.
