We are extremely happy to see how our students have combined their passion for green energy, through the launch of SERVe. Industry-academia collaboration is the key to foster innovation among the student community. Hence, working with corporates like Tata Power Solar helped our students get technical support and knowledge transfer. The team looks forward to working with more companies for future projects and to continue to nurture student-level innovation.

We have given them support in designing the modules of the solar panels, making sure that it fits the car well.they need a light weight and high efficiency modules for them and in a very aerodynamic structure and that services we have provided to them. so our support has been to motivate them, so our support has been to give them module side and energy side, complete solution to them and work with them because their requirements were also changing as and when they were innovating.
