SAE INDIA SUPRA is a student formula racing car annual competition event sponsored by Maruti Suzuki India and other Automobile Giants like Altair, Dassault Systems etc.hosted in the month of June – July every year where the student teams from different institute showcase their prowess in building a life size racing vehicle under stringent engineering specifications. The salient specifications which include the limitation of maximum power of engine at 30kW at a top speed of the vehicle limited to 110kmph and the range and endurance of the vehicle.
B.Tech Mechanical Engineering students have been consistently participating in the prestigious challenging event since 2015, where the competitors include reputed institutions including various IIT’s and NIT’s across India atBuddh International Circuit, NCR, New Delhi.
The racing car has to pass through several physical static and dynamic tests before it is allowed to compete in the endurance events where the car is put in the circuit for the final display.
Out of the total 112 participants and tough competition, the students were able to endure the various challenges in front of the national and international judges and cleared a total of 7 tests out of 8 in the nationwide competition.
Further, the design of the vehicle had impressed the technical experts who had come to conduct the various analyses that the vehicle was recommended to be a part of the FSAE – Formula SAE – an international yearly event to be conducted in Belgium in the year 2018.
The commitment shown by our faculty in the training of the students and the various technical brain storming sessions were honored by the SAEINDIA by awarding the title “Dronacharya”, which is considered as the highest respect in pan Indian club. The institute and faculty humbly accepted the award and moved forward towards better performance to achieve the best possible position in consecutive years.
Society of Automotive Engineers is an autonomous professional body comprising of automotive enthusiasts from prominent automotive, aerospace and allied industries, academia and students.
SAE SUPRA 2K15 was sponsored by Maruti Suzuki and held at Buddh International Circuit, Greater Noida, NCR, New Delhi. The department of Mechanical Engineering at IARE incepted team “ASWADHATHI”, a combination of automotive knowledge craving students and faculty to face a Himalayan challenge as torch bearers and fore runners for design, manufacturing and testing of a full-fledged student formula racing car to be a participant in the national level competition co participated by premier institutes from IIT’s and NIT’s and other renowned universities and colleges across the nation.
SAE collegiate club was started by the Department of Mechanical Engineering in the year 2015 with 60 students and 2 faculty advisors. The team has initiated the design and fabrication of the student formula racing car with prior experience in Go-Kart and mechatronics motion sensed excavator. In the process of building up of the racing car, the team involved in various techno commercial discussions and conducted automotive workshops for knowledge abridgement.
The team was successful for identifying standard elements, fabricating and casting various critical parts for a racing car and participated in the prestigious event in New Delhi. The significance of the lead team being equal participation by both genders and a complete corporate work structure. Further, the team successfully demonstrated integrity and professional skills in front of national and international judges, making it a stepping stone for knowledge transfer generations after. A head inlet which is a norm for fighter aircrafts air intake was simulated and incorporated in the design as a mark of innovation. The competition was fully supported and sponsored by the Management and the Principal of IARE.
Today, SUPRA and IARE are synonymous in every year due to the initiation and tremendous work and commitment shown by the team and made it a bench mark for years to come.
The Society of Automotive Engineers, India, continuously strives to improve the quality of engineers graduating from various institutions and universities by conducting several competitions for promoting various technical skills and instill leadership qualities. As a part of this vision, the SAE India Southern Section conducts yearly national level student convention to pecieve the quality improvement by a list of practical and theoretical competitions and faculty forums.
The 13th National Student Convention was conducted in three levels. Tier I was conducted in city level where students from prominent institutes of Hyderabad participated. A group of 48 students from IARE cleared this level of events. The Tier II was conducted in Zonal Level, hosted combinedly by IARE and MLRITM and championed by Osmania University, where the challenge was to compete with students from all over Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. IARE qualified in 16 events with a group of 37 honed contemporary students.
The final level was hosted by SAE and conducted by Bannari Amman Institute of Technology, Sathyamangalam, Tamil Nadu, where students from 6 different states competed in regular and surprise events. Our students participated with passion and educational integrity to win a overall 11 positions [5 – I Places, 3 – II Places, 3 – III Places] ranking to be one of the highest strike rate of competition in the event.
The experiences of judges and a host of experienced faculty and industry patrons gained a overall engineering exposure for the students and a motivation for self-improvement in areas of automotive engineering industry.
