Electric Kettles and relief medicine packs were provided to the quarantined students at the faculty using the contributions from the Executive Committee of AAREIE.

Collaboration in Arranging Undergraduate Training Opportunities

The AAREIE collaborated with the DEIE and EIES to arrange industrial training opportunities to the EIE students from the 18th batch. Following a request from the DEIE and considering the difficulties in securing suitable training places due to covid restrictions, the AAREIE actively participated and was able to provide several training opportunities to the students.
