The students will implement several projects with an eye to upgrade the life of under privileged people of the village. The students will put to practice the knowledge and skills acquired from several projects they have done under the guidance of expert faculties. Students and faculty will conduct various activities and projects like water testing, sewerage system, sewage treatment plant, solar energy, solid waste management, reducing indoor air pollution etc. The projects will be supervised by experts in the field.

At ITM, projects are allocated to students from second year unlike the normal practice of submitting a project on 4th year. Last year, students of ITM have done brilliant work for water treatment plant design and operation, solar energy project, increase of coefficient of performance of refrigerator/AC on the campus. These projects will be now extended to the adopted villages.
While commenting on the whole initiative, Dr. Milind Kulkarni, Group Director ITM Groups of Institution, Engineering said, “It was the vision of our Chairman Dr. P. V.
