Digital Engineering Notebook is a web application that deals with recording the projects and procedure of the paper notebook in the digital form. This application does have great advantages over the traditional notebooks. In this application user has options to place images, text, videos another related format into the project. This also allows user to interact with other members on the real-time basis and helps in identifying various shortcomings and eliminating them through discussions. Why is this project important? An engineering notebook is intended to capture vital details of the engineering process, and is an ongoing record of a project. Experiments are recorded, including ideas, invention insights, observations and other details relating to the progression of information. Tasks such as meetings or appointments, are also recorded in the book. When an engineer is working on a project, there can be legal questions that must be answered or a patent dispute can arise. Keeping detailed notes proves the ongoing work on the project and the engineer's involvement. For these reasons, engineers are taught to record information in a certain way to show the trail of the project. What problem does it solves? Many collegiate engineering programs require their students to keep an engineer’s notebook during design capstone and lab-based engineering courses to Develop better time management skills. Improve documentation, sketching, research, and communication skills. Produce a thorough and complete summary presentation and report for future use and purposes. Does it provide a new application/service, replace an existing application/service, or enhance an existing application/service? This project will cover more focused functionalities, such as: • USER FRIENDLY OPTIONS: The features used in this project are easily understandable to any user. • NOTICE AND BLOGS: This is an additional feature, Notices and Blogs are included into this portal. Students and Admin can use notices to share important and upcoming events.
