The Journey of PEC:
The journey began with a bunch of young and enthusiastic friends, budding engineer each one, with diverse interests. The lot came together to participate in various fests organized by the top notch universities across India only to realise that what they had been learning at college was barely sufficient to bridge the academia-industry gap. With all that their adventures had taught them; in their final year, they set out to conduct workshops on robotics for students just like them, in the hope that it would make a long lasting impact on the students to learn better and keep up with the current day skill requirements. The perfect combination of theoretical and practical knowledge displayed by the team, attracted requests from different organizations for assistance in a large spectrum of short term projects and products. This not only helped the team build a very strong skill set, but also discover their true calling. They decided to start the PhotoElectricChefs Innovation Hub and focus in the area of Home Automation.
PEC soon started receiving offers from clients where the requirements were rather flamboyant and required a fair amount of customization. In order to meet customer requirements PEC also integrates off the shelf solutions.
