Bag-loads of Eco-consciousness
It is hard not to miss the messages and detrimental outcomes of environmental pollution and its toll on human health and the planet. Green measures are practiced daily – right from using discarded firewood for cooking, to using ash for cleaning utensils and growing some of our own food for the midday meal. As part of the Social Awareness Program, four students Prakash Choudhary
Smarjeet Das,Gautam Singh, and Rahul Sharma of the final year of AISSMS College of Engineering Computer Engineering Department wanted to make their community aware about the ill effects of using plastic.
They went a step further and made paper bags out of old news papers and envelopes. They then went to some nearby villages to distribute the bags. They explained how plastic causes contamination, is non biodegradable and causes harm. They urged and motivated the villagers to switch to using paper bags. Their forthrightness and social message was appreciated by the villagers and now they are proactively trying to significantly reduce the use of plastic.
Thinking outside the box
At AISSMS College of Engineering, students have demonstrated their ability to take their education and apply it in solving day to day problems. For instance, one of the students’ bike keys fell into the water hole while parking bike in the college parking. Several students attempted to retrieve the key with their hands but since the hole was too narrow, they were unsuccessful.
However, Shubham Kasabe , a third year TE computer student had a novel idea. He brought a magnet tied with shoelace and inserted it into the hole. As the magnet easily attracted the key in the hole, the key also made its way out along with the magnet. Shubham Kasabe demonstrated his ability to think outside the box. Through critical thinking and abstract reasoning he was able to save the day and the students could continue their game of cricket.
Campaign for Green India
Date: 13/7/ 2016
With the growing concern around usage of chemical fertilizers in agriculture & promotion, the AISSMS COE Computer Engineering Department teachers and students community is learning ways of organic and natural farming. BE Computer students of AISSMS COE initiated a project near Bhor Distinct along with their teachers to make ‘Tree Plantation Program for Green India’. The objective is to learn to make every student aware about Importance of Trees and to promote it in their local communities, so that farms decrease their usage of chemical fertilizers and adopt environmental friendly methods.
Our children endorse healthy and eco friendly practices, so that local communities work towards a greener and a healthier future!
AISSMS College Of Engineering Volunteering Swachh Bharat Abhiyan

More than five student-volunteers from the Department of Computer Engineering along with Prof. Shashikant V. Athawale of the department were actively involved in the cleanliness drive. They enthusiastically took up brooms and garbage bags to clean up every nook and corner of the outer edge of the college premises.The whole drive was quite inspiring and motivating for the staff and students.
