Faculty and research
Crucible Of Research and Innovation (CORI) is a multi-disciplinary research centre at PESU. It was inaugurated by C.N.R Rao former Director, Indian Institute of Science on February 7, 2010. It has research facilities and a set of dedicated research staff who carry out research in their areas of interest.
Centre for Intelligent Systems (CIS) is a research centre at PESU, which is researches on topics including Control Systems, Speech, Image and Signal Processing, Robotics, Artificial intelligence, and Low Power VLSI Design.
On 26 September 2016, PISAT was successfully placed into polar Sun Synchronous Orbit (SSO) orbit by India’s Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle, in its thirty-seventh flight (PSLV-C35). Prime Minister, Narendra Modi tweeted “I applaud the industrious and innovative students of PES University, Bengaluru for creating PISAT that was launched successfully today”. The launch vehicle, carrying multiple satellites including PISAT lifted off from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh at 9:12 am. The team on the PES University campus is preparing to receive data from the satellite.
PISAT is a three axis stabilized imaging nanosatellite weighing about 5 kg and generates 13 watts power with S-band RF communication. The major subsystems are: an imaging camera to provide earth imageries with 80 meter resolution, On Board Computer (OBC), Attitude Determination and Control System (ADCS), RF communication system with S Band frequency, telemetry, telecommand, thermal system, structure and Electrical Power System (EPS). The ground software was developed for on-ground orbit determination essential for mission operations.
PISAT was shipped to Sriharikota High Altitude Range (SHAR) rocket launch centre on 11 September 2016 in the presence of Director of ISRO Satellite Centre (ISAC), Dr. Mylswamy Annadurai, SSS PD Mr. Amareshwar Khened, and other officials. A team of 11 from PES University were present at SHAR for pre-launch activities of PISAT from 11 to 17 September. During the period PISAT was interfaced with ejection mechanism and integrated with the launch vehicle. Earlier, after stringent performance and quality tests by expert committee, the nanosatellite was formally handed over to ISRO at a function on the campus attended by top officials from the government and ISRO on April 20, 2016.
The University takes pride in enabling students to get hands on experience and understand critical space technology and quality requirements. The joint initiative of ISRO and PES University and five other colleges proved to be a great opportunity for students to work on space research, analyze launch readiness and related activities. As a policy ISRO extends support to technical institutions and student missions. After extensive technical evaluation by ISRO scientists, PES University was given the responsibility of leading design, development, fabrication and testing of student nanosatellite, PISAT. Four other engineering colleges collaborated on the project. The University established Electro Static Discharge Room and Satellite Control Facility on campus.
Course content and grading
All the courses which have been conferred autonomous status have their departments set their own course content and grading system. The college follows the credit-based system of performance evaluation, with proportional weighting of courses based on their importance. The total marks (usually out of 100) form the basis of grades, with a grade value (out of 10) assigned to a range of marks. For each semester, the students are graded by taking a weighted average of all the subject grades with their respective credit points. Each semester’s evaluation is done independently with a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) reflecting the overall performance across semesters. Till June 2012, the grading system being followed was relative grading,but the college switched to an absolute grading system after consultations with the university.
