Tips for your Final Semester Project

The Industrial Requirements are very different from what the Engineers are being trained for in their four years at College. This is one of the main reasons why Students experience trouble in bagging good placement offers – The theoretical knowledge and the practical implementation are poles apart. To make the graduating engineers more employable as per the current industry trends, Students need an intensive training program.

The Project that students are supposed to submit in their Final Semester is the best chance for them to ‘Research and Develop’ something that they’ve been hoping for, but never got a chance to! Students should NOT choose their projects based on their knowledge; but rather mould their knowledge according to the needs of their Project. This shall be a ‘Showcase Project’ on your Resume (and trust me, it works wonders).

We highly encourage Students to work and develop their own projects, and not getting it done through a ‘Vendor’. We appreciate Students who THINK-out-of-the-box, INNOVATE-their ideas, and FABRICATE-their solutions. Well, that’s what we are all about – TIF! (Here, I speak on behalf of all recruiters from the Leading Industries and Companies).

Keep Hustling! Keep Making!
Good Luck!


What is ATAL Tinkering Lab?

Since the last few decades, our education system has seen a paradigm shift. Today, we need an approach that inculcates Hands on Methodology in the current education scenario. ATL lab would teach students essential 21st-century skills which will help them in developing their professional and personal skills. Skilled India is the need of the hour and each step taken towards this dream is welcomed.

ATL aims at helping young minds learn latest technologies and provide them with a platform to try their hands-on it. This will not only inculcate skills, creativity and imagination, but also teach them how to apply the concepts they’ve been learning in books.

Tools and equipment will be provided to the students for practical exposure to STEAM (Acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math). Various DIY kits, sensors, micro-controller boards and 3D printers shall also be available for the students.

Our e-commerce store has more than 1000 varieties of tools and components available. We also have customized DIY kits and prototyping boards which will help you get started with ‘making’ without the hassles of complicated design and connections. We also organize workshops, training and seminars for enthusiastic minds. We have our learning centers in two cities: Hyderabad and Bangalore. For customised courses, please drop us a mail to

Initializing and connecting raspberry pi 2 through Ethernet cable to your windows 10 powered Laptop

So here was I, a beginner in field of pi. I am a hobbyist and like to get my hands dirty into the circuit. So eventually it was my time to land on pi and I was damn excited. But then came I came across the different accessories of r-pi lcd screen, camera, mini keyboard, etc , and I was like ,am I gonna buy these all to use r-pi and I was pretty sure I had to figure out something.

First thing which I had to do, was to get an operating system for my pi. So this was easy, get an SD card and load os on it. Here is the process to load an os on Raspberry pi. Insert SD card in your Laptop. First download SD Formatter to completely erase previous data from your SD card.

Now u will have to download Xming and run it on your laptop. Xming provides the X Window System display server,
a set of traditional sample X applications and tools, and a set of fonts. So now you can have a GUI with your Linux r-pi.

Download putty.exe from

Get an image of OS

Get Win32DiskImager to mount Image of your OS into your SD card. From

Open win32diskImager and select your OS and you are ready to get going!

Insert SD card into your R-pi and voila!! You are done now, all you need is r-pi on your laptop and give it access to internet.
R-pi access to Wi-Fi Internet: Go to Network and Sharing from your Control Panel. Click on your Wi-Fi connection.
Click on properties and then click on sharing and then click on allow other network to connect through this.

Connect R-pi with your laptop. Click on unidentified network connection and then click on details so get rough idea of IP address of your pi. So your R-pi IP is somewhere between to, note here I got xxx as 137, in your case it can be different.

Now Download Angry IP Scanner from and run it.

Set IP range from 0 to 255 and then click Start. It keeps changing every time u restart your r-pi. Now copy this IP, run putty and paste it here. Click open, a pop up will pop click yes.
