IEEE is an Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers is a non profit making organization dedicated to advancing technology for benefit of humamity. IEEE has a worlswide network through its geographical regions, Sections and subsections. There are total 10 regions of operation, out of which Asia -Pacific region is a large geographic region having around 90 sections, subsections and councils. IEEE tries to serve for technology advancing through its various societies and chapters.

IEEE student branch is a small functional unit of the main organization and can be formed at any educational institute to serve IEEE student members. IEEE student branch at our college was established in december 2011 and catering its services to Electronics & Communication engg, Computer science engineering, Information Technology, Electrical Engineering as allied branches.IEEE student branch gives a annual student membership at $27 and annual professional membership at $81. IEEE student branch functions through the core committee comprising of IEEE student members formed every year. The branch has so far conducted workshops on basic and advanced robotics, Ethical Hacking , FPGA based system design. Also we had a robotics workshop as a prelim round for techfest at IIT Bombay.The branch has taken initiative to organise various Bombay section actitvities like SKEP and DL.IEEE cell also has deputed our students and faculty members for Branch Counselor and Branch Chair meet at S.B.Jain Institute of Technology, Nagpur.

National Service Scheme (NSS)
Prof. R.V. Bobate, NSS Program Officer, NSS Unit, PIET, Nagpur
National Service Scheme (NSS) unit of Priyadarshini Institute of Engg & Technology , installed in session 2010-11 with the capacity of 50 students ,Now it is upgraded with the capacity of 200 students , affiliated with NSS , Rashtrasant Tukdoji Maharaj Nagpur University , Nagpur. The overall aim of National Service Scheme as envisaged earlier, is to give an extension dimension to the higher education system and orient the student youth to community service while they are studying in educational institution. The reason for the formulation of this objective is the general realization that the college level students have a tendency to get alienated from the village/slum masses which constitute the majority of the population of the country. The educated youth who are expected to take the reins of administration in future are found to be unaware of the problems of the village/slum community and in certain cases are indifferent towards their needs and problems. Therefore it is necessary to arouse the social conscience of the students, and to provide them an opportunity to work with the people in the villages and slums. It is felt that their interaction with the common villagers and slum dwellers will expose them to the realities of life and bring about a change in their social perception.
Objectives of NSS :
The broad objectives of NSS are to :
Understand the community in which they work.
Understand themselves in relation to their community.
Identify the needs and problems of the community and involve them in problem solving process.
Develop among themselves a sense of social and civic responsibility.
Utilize their knowledge in finding practical solution to individual and community problems.
Develop competence required for group living and sharing of responsibilities.
Gain skills in mobilizing community participation.
Acquire leadership qualities and democratic attitude.
Develop capacity to meet emergencies and natural disasters.
Tasks Done :
Awareness camp on MEMS.
Blood Donation Camp
Celebration of Azadi 70
Distribution of Food to Orphanage

Mrs. V. B. Bagde, Nodal Co-ordinator, Virtual Labs Nodal Center, PIET, Nagpur.
Good lab facilities and updated lab experiments are critical for any engineering college. Physical distances and the lack of resources often make it difficult to perform experiments, especially when they involve sophisticated instruments. Also, good teachers are always a scarce resource. The 'Virtual Labs' project addresses this issue of lack of good lab facilities, as well as trained teachers, by making remote experimentation possible. With the present day internet and computer technologies, these limitations no longer hamper students and researchers in enhancing their skills and knowledge. Also, in a country such as ours, costly instruments and equipment need to be shared with fellow researchers to the extent possible. Yet another objective is to arouse the curiosity of the students and permit them to learn at their own pace. This facilitates the absorption of basic and advanced concepts throughremote experimentation. Internet based experimentation further permits use of resources - knowledge, software, and data available on the web, apart from encouraging skilful experiments being simultaneously performed at points separated in space.
Objectives of the Virtual Labs :
To provide remote-access to Labs in various disciplines of Science and Engineering. These Virtual Labs would cater to students at the undergraduate level, post graduate level as well as to research scholars.
To enthuse students to conduct experiments by arousing their curiosity. This would help them in learning basic and advanced concepts through remote experimentation.
To provide a complete Learning Management System around the Virtual Labs where the students can avail the various tools for learning, including additional web-resources, video-lectures, animated demonstrations and self evaluation.
To share costly equipment and resources, which are otherwise available to limited number of users due to constraints on time and geographical distance.
Tasks Done :
Total 75 workshops conducted for Students on Virtual Labs at PIET Nodal Center, in collaboration with IIT Bombay, an MHRD Govt. Of India Initiative, under NMEICT (National Mission on Education through ICT).
Around 2000 Students have been trained and 10000 Experiments has been conducted at PIET, Virtual Labs Nodal Center.
3 outreach workshops for the Faculty Members from PR Pote Patil College of Engg. & Management, Amravati, SGSS, Shegaon, DBACER, Nagpur, GHRAET, Nagpur has been conducted successfull.
