Dear Colleagues,

We are now well in 2014 and we have a number of important updates for you in this edition of Member Matters.

The most important update is the evolving India strategy for the next three years (2015-2017).

With guidance from the India Development Panel and the Communities Committee South Asia (CCSA), we now have a clear strategy that will focus on building value and sustainability. Sustainable growth for India will come from having robust engagement opportunities and by being absolutely relevant to this country. Our focus for the next three years will be to strengthen our focus on the Energy, Transport and Education sectors that will ultimately lead to our strategic goals, where in:

  • The IET will be recognised in India as a meeting place for sector      leaders to interact and support standards, policy and innovation in      order to position the IET as a thought leader
  • The IET will deliver practical skills to the Indian education system,      combined with an influential role in improving engineering educational      standards through accreditation and the leveraging of industry      relations

I invite you to join and help us in this value creation. This will involve working closely with stakeholders in the government, industry and the academia; facilitate the involvement of subject matter experts and leaders to provide sector guidance, insights, knowledge and deep intelligence; provide the crucial connect between industry and academia; support the teaching of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) subjects in schools and work to help India in its endeavours to achieve excellence in Technical Education.

Thank you.

Best regards,
Shekhar Sanyal

Members of the IET Pune LN visited the Mumbai Metropolitan Region Development Authority (MMRDA) to gain insights into the engineering intricacies of the recently inaugurated Mumbai Monorail (India’s first monorail system). This mass transit system opened its first phase to commuters in early February 2014 and has been widely billed as the solution to alleviate Mumbai’s traffic challenges.

The visit helped members of the IET Pune LN understand the end-to-end technological implementation in the monorail project - from operations to live status control and maintenance of the rail lines. The team also enjoyed a monorail ride to experience the technology in action.

The second technical visit was to the Giant Metrewave Radio Telescope, Pune. The observatory at GMRT centre is equipped with an array of radio telescopes. The powerful telescopes help in viewing astronomical objects like galaxies, pulsars, supernovae sun and solar winds.

The members also visited Vighnahar Co-operative Sugar Factory, where the processing of sugarcane to crystalline sugar was demonstrated.

Dr Madhuri Joshi, Chair of the IET Pune LN coordinated the technical visits.

Open Source Operating System, Linux continues to be popular among developers owing to its extensive use in the industry. The IET Pune LN organised a 7-day workshop for MTech students at the College of Engineering Pune to provide hands-on experience in Linux environments.

Mr C D Kulkarni, a Linux veteran with over 25 years of experience with the programming environment facilitated the workshop. Dr Shilpa Metkar, Secretary, IET Pune LN coordinated the event.


In October 2014, Professor William Webb will become the youngest President of the IET for more than 100 years. William will succeed Barry Brooks to become the 133rd President of the IET.

William, 47, has held a number of senior positions in the IT and telecommunications sectors and regularly appears on TV and radio to talk about engineering-related topics on behalf of the IET.

He is currently CEO of the Weightless SIG, the standards body developing a new global M2M technology. He is also a Director at Webb Search, an independent wireless communications consultancy.

William said: “It is an honour to become President of the IET, an organisation that I have been involved with for many years. As one of the world’s largest organisations for engineers and technicians, with nearly 160,000 members in 127 countries around the world, the IET is the UK’s most multi-disciplinary engineering institution. This puts us in a strong position to deliver our vision of working to engineer a better world.”

ISRO and BHEL centres in Bangalore also welcomed the young engineers and took them on a tour of their facilities.

The tour helped students and faculty of SATI gain a hands-on experience of engineering in action.

Student Members of the IET, Ajinkya Bari and Shraddhesh Bhandari (final year Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering, College of Engineering, Pune) have done the IET Proud. The young engineers have developed a system to acquire and transfer data from a vehicle’s analog and digital sensors to the user’s mobile phone. The applications of this low cost technology include on-the- spot soil testing, home automation, traffic data capture and health data capture.

Ajinkya and Shraddhesh presented their work at the 16th IEEE International Conference on Advanced Communications Technology, held in South Korea earlier this year. They were the youngest participants in the conference.

Congratulations Ajinkya and Shraddesh!
