A one-day workshop on “Basic Python for Science and Engineering” was conductedby School of Engineering, GD Goenka University, for the faculty members on 9th August 2016. All the faculty members of the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering attended the workshop. Dr. Sandeep Nagar (Assistant Professor) was the resource person for the workshop.
Python is an upcoming programming language which is gaining popularity in the domain of software as well as hardware development. Being open source in nature, it can be used in the domain of engineering education. For this purpose, the workshop focused on orientation of faculty members teaching electronics courses to use python in their teaching and research activities. The workshop also acted to a precursor workshop-cum-training session for learning ExpEYES and Seelablet devices, procured by GD Goenka University, which extensively use python for their working. These devices shall be used in further research at the university.
Participants enjoyed solving various exercises with the new programming language and found it very useful for their future work.
