CHENNAI: Are you unsure and undecided as to what to do next after graduating from class 12? Just drop in to the Edex Education Expo 2016 at Chennai Trade Centre in Nandambakkam. It will be held till March 27, and aims to help chart your future.

The Expo offers a range of options in higher education for students with institutions from across the State throwing light on a variety of courses in different fields under one umbrella.

About 50 stalls comprising engineering colleges, deemed universities and educational academies that focus on specialised courses are participating in the Expo. In addition to getting a list of courses offered by these institutions, noted educationists offer sound career guidance to students.

Students wanting to study medicine abroad, can get help from education consultants to learn about the process involved in admissions to medical universities in countries such as the Philippines. They can also learn of unique engineering courses offered with exchange programs, which provides an option to study a part of the course in Ireland or the United Kingdom.

An added attraction is that students from several engineering colleges have displayed their creative projects. Francis, a student from a private engineering college near Tambaram has designed a robot that can operate in air, land, or water. Aptly named Amphidrone, he says the robot can be used for defence operations. “The specialty of Amphidrone is that it can work in any environment. It can be pressed to locate landmines ahead of the forces landing. It would also be equipped with a ‘self destruct’ option in the event of being captured by the enemies,” he said.

Other projects displayed are designed to make cumbersome and expensive mechanisms, simple and cost effective.

The education expo was inaugurated in the presence of VIT University Director (PG Admission) G Kalaichelvan, Meenakshi Group of Institutions Dean Hari Prakash, and Sakthi Mariamman Engineering College Trustee Thilakavathi Ramachandran.
