MAKIT - Reviews

The experience gained in establishing and running the Projects in the Mechanical Engineering Department, which was planned to not only provide facilities for identification of elements and components encountered in mechanical engineering, but also to provide means of enhancing creative work. Numerous examples of mechanical systems associated with electrical and electronic devices that can be constructed by means of modular units are displayed. Modular-component kits are described that are appropriate for constructing various basic modules that can be added together to set up a useful model. Hands-on experience in using some of these kits is reported. The approach used to motivate students with a view to enhancing their creative capabilities is then described. Some case studies are included.
