TESLA

(The Electrical Students Luminous Association)

   Looking at the young enthusiastic minds a need was felt to direct them towards a better technical future, and making them capable engineers by various training programs, workshops, field visits, etc. A step was taken by the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engg. to form an association which would help us achieve the objectives. This idea was initiated by our department faculty and was well supported by students and other staff. Once the association was formed, there were several names suggested and finally the name TESLA (The Electrical Students Luminous Association) was selected for representing the theme.

Inauguration of TESLA: 

    The first ever student association of National Institute of Technology Goa was inaugurated by the auspicious hands of our then Director Prof. (Dr.) G.R.C. Reddy, followed by a guest lecture by Mr Somana Ganpathi on 2nd March 2012. Mr Somana Ganpathi graduated in Electrical Engineering from REC Warangal, now known as National Institute of Technology Warangal. He had presented guest  lectures at 6 IIT’s, 8 NIT’s, and so far has presented 270 presentations in over 15 states. The lecture was based on Energy conversation, Power factor control etc. Subsequently, TESLA has conducted numerous training programs, workshops on IoT, robotics, Guest Lectures, Industrial visits, etc. TESLA expresses its sincere gratitude and is indebted to all the later Institute Directors Prof. Uday Kumar Y, Prof. Gopal Mugeraya also for facilitating its activities and growth.

The members of TESLA were selected by election process and following are the elected members till date:
