School of Engineering, GD Goenka University (GDGU) proudly presents its first ever Technical Education Week from 28th April to 2nd May, 2014. During this week, various activities like a guest lecture from expert on nanotechnology, a workshop on design software CREO Parametric 2.0, a tutorial based workshop on Python programming and an open ideas competition on Green and Clean Environment, will be organized in which students, faculty and professionals from various schools, universities and company are expected to participate. The activities of Technical Education Week will ignite young minds and enhance their knowledge, skill and attitude.
Technical Education week starts with a guest lecture of Prof. (Dr.) Ratnamala Chatterjee from IIT Delhi on “Smart Magnetic Multifunctional Materials in Micro-Nano Regime” on 28th April 2014. Dr. Chatterjee is a well-known name in the field of magnetic nanoparticles and thin films. This lecture is open to all faculty and students of GDGU and aims to spark interest in them in the field of nano-technology.
On 29th – 30th April, a workshop on Creo Parametrics 2.0, which is an industry standard on 3D CAD designing, will be organized. This workshop aims to cater to the need of training students on advanced scientific software to make their studies industry relevant. Designing objects and their parts in 3D is an essential part of almost all engineering domain, hence this workshop is relevant to all engineering graduates at GD Goenka University as well as other universities. Faculty members Mr. Abhishek Pandey and Mr. Vikash Khatkar (Assistant Professors, School of Engineering) will coordinate the event.
On 1st – 2nd May, a tutorial based workshop "Python Programming for Scientists and Engineers" will be conducted. Dr. Sandeep Nagar (Assistant Professor, School of Engineering) will deliver six tutorial sessions over the period of two days and these sessions will cover very important python packages like IPython, Numpy, Scipy, Matplotlib and Sympy. It is essential quality of a good engineering graduate to be good programmer and to understand how computers integrate and communicate with various machines. Moreover Python has now become one of the most popular programming languages of the world. Hence, this workshop caters to the need of those who wish to be in the forefront of science, engineering and technology.
The week will end with an exciting activity by Ms. Anindita Roy Chowdhury (Assistant Professor, School of Engineering) on 2nd May which is an open ideas competition on green and clean environment. The competition is open to all school and college/university students who come up with innovative and interesting ideas on managing waste in their locality or generating energy using waste materials. Young students will battle their minds while presenting their ideas and contribute in making our planet a healthier and better place to live.
