Currently the club is using SOLIDWORKS for designing cad models and Aerofly deluxe for rc simulation of the model.

With observatory nights held fortnightly, you get a chance to take a voyage of the universe when you get to see those rings of Saturn, moons around the Jupiter etc.!!! Regular lectures and discussions are held to help students develop a better understanding of those mysterious forces in nature. We use Starchart App (Available for free in Playstore) and Stellarium software to study star maps. The club currently has three fully functioning telescopes.

Automobile Club

Automobile club IIT Jodhpur is a group of passion-driven students who strive to constantly design and build cars and vehicles of all types. Ideas, thoughts, questions, basically anything and everything that screams "automotive", even plain feelings of infatuation are what drives the members of this club.

Programming Club

Established the year our college started, we have gone from strength to strength in the past years. Whether it is algorithmic programming challenges, AI games, hacking on something cool, we do it together. So if programming turns you on, come on and get wired in!

Robotics Club

Everyone should learn robotics and why should you learn it or why would anyone would want to learn it? Remember when you were kid you took stuff apart to see how it works and some time for repairing your favorite toy. Why do it? Because ROBTICS is ultimate blank canvas. It is human right to be able to dig into anything you have in front of you from phone in your hand to earphones in your ear to those remote controlled cars you had played with. You want to change the way anything works. You want your car should go around building autonomously or may be controlled by your voice. So that’s why we do it because it’s becoming more near to ourselves, an expression, and an extension of our intelligent of our mentality to create and to destroy in some ways. That’s why we do it. Point of club is to help you to get more into the tools necessary to those things, to help you to create and to augment your possessions and to destroy and recreate and that’s what we are all about at ROBOTICS CLUB.

Science Club

Science Club is not concerned with a particular domain. It gives source to turn the innovative ideas which are not confined to a specific domain, to create zeal of science among students through interesting activities. Here they apply their general science knowledge to make practical models. Science club works on basic technologies and software in which no field specific knowledge is required. For example: Rube Goldberg: where basic science is sufficient to design that model, Rubik’s cube, computer tips and tricks etc.
