An SAEINDIA Collegiate Club is the best gift a college management can give to its students of Mechanical Engineering Department. The society of automotive engineers at Gandhinagar Institute of Technology ventures to promote extensive engineering, designing skills and fabrication dedicated to create innovative solutions and advanced technologies in the field of Automobile An SAEINDIA Collegiate Club imparts a framework to the creativity and scientific thirst of students by providing avenues to students to solve engineering problems of real nature, learn to manage projects in a collaborative environment and keep themselves abreast with the latest in mobility engineering.
The team Renosters (of GIT) is under the guidance of proactive faculty advisors, with the support of Gandhinagar Institute of Technology in the form of complete laboratory/workshop facilities and technical assistance to design and fabricate All-Terrain Vehicle (ATV). The primary objective of the team was to learn the skills required for designing and fabricating an ATV that meets the legislation, safe, comfortable, inexpensive and aesthetically appealing. Team Renosters, comprising 21 members, participated in the off road vehicle collegiate event “Baja Student India” of Delta Inc. Baja Student India is a national level undergraduate engineering event wherein the students are expected to replicate a real-life scenario Design, Analyze & Fabricate a single seater, 4 wheeled All-Terrain Vehicle which was then raced in the specially created track near National Institute of Technology (NIT), Jamshedpur. Team qualified in the event with their quiz competition (second phase) in August 2014 from a crowd of 66 teams from all over India, receiving the go-ahead to fabricate the model of the same with 6th rank position overall. The main event was held at National Institute of Technology (NIT), Jamshedpur schedule from 7th to 11th January, 2015. Student teams are judged based on Static events, written technical test, presentations and design evaluations, ergonomics, functionality, and productivity of their ATV; and also the dynamic events like acceleration, braking, hill climbs, chain pulls, maneuverability, and a gruesome 4 hour endurance race in the final event. GIT secured 20th position among 42 teams at National Level.
The Mechanical engineering department’s students have already started development and training for the next year’s BAJA SAEINDIA ATV competition which is going to be held at Chandigarh in July 2015.

GTU has introduced Open Source Technology Club initiative for all the GTU affiliated colleges in collaboration with Spoken Tutorial Project-IIT Bombay. To take the benefit of this opportunity, Gandhinagar Institute of Technology has established Open Source Technologies Club (OSTC). The Spoken Tutorial Project is about teaching and learning a particular FOSS (Free and Open Source Software) like Linux, Scilab, LaTeX, PHP & MySQL, Java, C/C++, Libre Office, Inkspace, Net Beans, Libre Office Suit, Python, PHP, Scilab and many more via an easy Video tool – Spoken Tutorials. Today, SMEs and Govt. departments are moving to Open Source Software like Linux OS. Students with this knowledge will have an edge in the job market. They can also become entrepreneurs and use Open Source Software in their businesses and save money vs if they use commercial software. Net – it is a win-win situation for all and the best part, all the Trainings are conducted FREE of cost. The training has been started in July 2011 and to date around 1500+ participants took advantage of this club and certified.
