Res College Symposium 2018 has ended
The symposium is an  inter-college event where students openly discuss the topics explored  within each college’s respective theme.

Every  RC  student will give either a Presentation or a  Poster -  either as a  group  or as an individual project.  Every RC student will also be an audience  member.

Temperature control  dominates the energy consumption in homes and offices, and the deterioration  of earth's ecosystem justifies the need for alternative energy solutions.  Therefore, it is necessary to design heat-efficient infrastructure to keep up  with the growing, global economy. Passive solar infrastructure utilizes solar  irradiance to generate free thermal energy without auxiliary mechanical  processes, which is achieved by optimizing the envelope and windows of a  building. This provides environmentally feasible alternatives to electrical  heating and cooling. Recent developments in science have produced  cutting-edge passive solar technology.
