Agragami Group of Educational Institutions has two campuses: in Jakkur and in Yelahanka suburbs at the north end of Bangalore City.

The JAKKUR CAMPUS houses the PRE-UNIVERSITY COLLEGE, SRI RAMA VIDYALAYA (CBSE) and SRI RAMA VIDYALAYA (State Board) School.

This spacious facility is 6 years old, and has ample grounds for all our outdoor festivities and indoor activities. All our festivities are held at the Jakkur campus.

This is our Jakkur Campus on the night of our Annual Day which is usually in the 3rd week of each January. On that night we display to our parents and distinguished guests our artistic and athletic talents and appreciation of our culture. Even our chairman (at the forefront) is watching with fascination the activities on the podium, probably wishing he was that young again... For Jakkur during the day see Admission Details link on the right.

The YELAHANKA CAMPUS about 5 kms away, encompasses the VSM Aerospace and Engineering schools and Vidya Kendra School.

The Yelahanka Campus spreads over 6 acre area, with a 6 storey building for classrooms and workshops, a 5 storey building for hostel, a hangar and several other school buildings and workshops.

If you are interested in residing in the hostel, please download the hostel application form and submit it with your registration forms.


Each campus has its own libraries relative to the courses offered at the location. Supporting books are available for every age group and course of study. We also have audiovisual equipment to assist in computer aided presentations, which faculty and students can use to present their work. The photo below shows the library at Yelahanka campus, for specific use of VSM Aerospace students.






We have well equipped Computer Labs and access to Internet in Yelahanka Campus as well as in Jakkur Campus.

IN THE MAIN BUILDING

We have total of 30 classrooms each 43 sq meters in size. Each classroom is equipped with LCD and overhead projector.



We also have two Examination Halls 300 sq.m each to accommodate 600 students and frequently host examinations in conjuction with other educational institutions.

In the hangar we have retired flying machines which we purchased as wrecks and restored them to fully functioning aircraft.



HS 748 AVRO aircraft 50 seater was a twin turboprop airliner. The Avro 748 was developed during the 1950s and sold widely across the globe, powered by two Rolls-Royce Dart engines. Avro was a British aircraft manufacturer, with numerous landmark designs. The company was absorbed into Hawker Siddeley Aviation in July 1963, and the Avro name ceased to be used.



This is de Havilland DEVON aircraft. The Devon aircraft was developed for the RAF from the civil de Havilland Dove 4 as a light communications and transport aircraft. Some Devons were re-engined to Dove 8 standard and were known as Devon C2, being used as light transport aircraft until 1984. The civilian Devon was a commercial success. Five-hundred aircraft were produced and they flew in practically every country in the world.



And this is Schweizer Helicopter with Lycoming piston engine model 300C. The 300C is an extremely versatile light utility, piston-powered helicopter. Its wide range of options and accessories make the 300C easily adaptable to a multitude of diverse missions. Its unequaled maneuverability, impressive useful load and outstanding range and endurance allow the 300C to perform in environments where other piston helicopters fall short.

Prior to becoming a wholly owned subsidiary of Sikorsky in September 2004, Schweizer Aircraft was the oldest remaining privately-owned aircraft company in the United States. Schweizer Aircraft has produced 2,160 sailplanes, 2,650 agricultural airplanes, more than 60 special purpose fixed-wing aircraft and unmanned vehicles, and more than 1,000 helicopters.

Agragami has adequate workshops and laboratories with all the necessary equipment, tools and instrumentation to train and to perfom useful work (we are actually rebuilding our aircraft). We train our students to use all this machinery and tools, as well as computer hardware and software.

You really have to see our workshops and laboratories to fully appreciate the extent of our committment to teaching students the skills they need. This is just a small peek at our facilities.



In our General Engineering Shop we learn to work with hand tools to make sure the individual parts fit precisely. What you will learn here, you can apply anywhere. Our six girls shown here will never have to ask someone to help them to repair something. Even for guys it surely removes the syndrome of two left hands...



This professional Machine Shop has lathe machines, drilling machines, grinding machines and a milling machine.



This is the Piston Engine Lab. A piston or reciprocating engine, is a heat engine that uses one or more reciprocating pistons to convert pressure into a rotating motion. Opposed, air-cooled four and six cylinder piston engines are by far the most common engines used in small general aviation aircraft requiring up to 400 horsepower (300 kW) per engine.



This is another view of the Piston Engine Lab with different example of a piston engine, which can come in several configurations and models depending on the manufacturer.



This is a Jet Engine Lab. The key part of a jet engine is the exhaust nozzle. This is the part which produces thrust for the jet; the hot airflow from the engine is accelerated when exiting the nozzle, creating thrust, which, in conjunction with the pressures acting inside the engine which are maintained and increased by the constriction of the nozzle, pushes the aircraft forward. The most common jet propulsion engines flown are turbojet, turbofan and rocket. Other types such as pulsejets, ramjets, scramjets and Pulse Detonation Engines have also flown.



Motors, generators, rotors, windings, transformers, switches and all sorts of controls are available in our Electrical Lab to play with and learn the properties of electrical energy and amazing physics of its relationship with magnetism. There is so much to learn, that if you are trully interested, you can take a peek already into our library where we assembled some basic material, courtesy of US Navy.





These two photos above are our Radio Navigation Lab. The library materials we mentioned above will also give you some primer on that.





The two photos above show our Instrument Lab. Flight instruments are the instruments in the cockpit of an aircraft that provide the pilot with information about the flight situation of that aircraft, such as height, speed and attitude. The flight instruments are of particular use in conditions of poor visibility, as in a cloud, when such information is not available from visual reference outside the aircraft. The term is sometimes used loosely as a synonym for cockpit instruments as a whole, in which context it can include instruments for engine, navigational and communication equipment. In other words, what you learn in the previous labs comes visually together in this one not only for you, but most importantly, for the pilot who has to rely on the presented information.



The Avionics Lab is closely related to the prevously discussed labs. While the "instrumentation" is what pilot sees, avionics are the "guts" behind everything and not necessarily visible. Avionics means "aviation electronics". It comprises electronic systems for use on aircraft, satellites and spacecraft, comprising communications, navigation and the display and management of multiple systems. It also includes the hundreds of systems that are fitted to aircraft to meet individual roles, which can be as simple as a search light for a police helicopter or as complicated as the tactical system for an Airborne Early Warning platform.







The three photos above show the Air Frame Lab. The airframe of an airplane is the basic plane without the power plant and other parts that are regularly replaced. The major parts of the airframe are the fuselage, wings, tail assembly, engine mounts, and landing gear (visible in the last photo, and yes, tires need occasional replacement). You will see how the pneumatic systems work that regulate the performance of these components.
