Innovative projects such as industrial design of a small Electronic Exchange equipment, cordless microphone, electronic choke for fluorescent lamps have been successfully completed. In collaboration with the Community Polytechnic, STEP is engaged in technology transfer to rural areas. About 350 smokeless chulas have been installed, besides putting up several biogas plants.

The Information Centre established by STEP offers its membership to industries. Reference volume standards, different types of Hand Books, Information on Industrial Policy, Industrial licensing etc., are available. Besides these, a computer data bank on Expert resources, Manufacturers Index, Supplier Index, etc. has established to cater to the members.

Extracurricular activities

The college has one of the best quiz clubs – The Greycells in Karnataka[citation needed]. The club was started by Jayanth Munipalli and Akshay Bharadwaj in 1999. The weekly quiz, (conducted till date) ‘WeKuiz’ is a huge hit. The SJCE students have twice won (2001 and 2003) the Times of India Ascent Quiz conducted by the Times Group in addition to numerous other intercollegiate quizzes held in and around the city[citation needed]. The college IEEE and CSI branches, wholly managed by the students, are the most active student branches of the two organizations in the whole of the state of Karnataka[citation needed]. The technical expertise of the Linux Campus Club – SJCE has filled the thirst of young minds,[citation needed] it is an organization with a primary goal of fostering the use of free open source software among the students its activities include conducting sessions on tools, packages, programming languages and other technical topics related to FOSS, talks by members of open source community, conducting workshops to facilitate hands-on experience to supplement the sessions conducted[citation needed].

IEEE-SJCE and CSI-SJCE chapters conduct several weekly events ranging from aptitude and technical tests to workshops, which greatly benefit the student. They also conduct annual technical fests which are attended by students from around the nation. The IEEE-SJCE conducts two fests, Tuxedo – a technical fest dedicated solely to free and open source software during the odd semester (the 5th edition was held recently) and Cyberia – A National Level technical fest during the even semester. The CSI conducts its annual technical fest, Technologix during the even semester. A pure technical symposium to be conducted by the CSI during the odd semester is well in the pipeline. The official college magazine editorial board, JC ED, is very active and keeps churning out creative masterpieces year after year[citation needed] . Their recent release had the name JayZine (2007) and was a beacon of creativity and imagination.[citation needed] They also organize a yearly literary extravaganza called ‘Shabd’.
