KCG College of Technology, Chennai organised the annual Project Challenge for engineering students. The competition is a platform for students to build on their ability to apply theoretical concepts to solving real-life engineering problems. Here’s a summary of some of the projects presented:

Students of the Computer Science department presented a host of interesting Android apps. An Android app that tracks missing belongings using Bluetooth, GSM and GPS and sends location of the missing items via SMS was an instant hit with visitors. Another promising app was a Brain Painting device which translates neural signals obtained from
ALS patients’ brains (using P300 - Base Brain Computer Interface) to drawings on a computer screen, and thereby helps them to communicate better with others.

Self-Consolidating Concrete – a new form of reinforcement that
improves constructability, structural integrity and project completion times was presented by students of Chemical Engineering department. They also demonstrated the usage of copper slag as partial replacement of fine aggregate in concrete for improved efficiencies.

Students of the IT department showcased an Energy Competent Cluster, which automatically monitors environmental conditions and thereby increases the network lifetime. A Decision Support System that analyses marks obtained by students and provides the list of students eligible for placements was also presented.

Design and fabrication of Remote Controlled Vehicle which could manoeuvre into small spaces to aid rescue operations was one of
the interesting projects showcased by Mechanical engineering department. Hillclimb Powerdrive – a technology that uses secondary gearbox to increase torque of heavy vehicles in high range driving and Nanofluid aided water heaters were among the other projects showcased.

The electronics and communications department showcased robots which could perform a variety of tasks that included prevention of accidents and surveillance. Cutting-edge technology projects were
also demonstrated by students of the Aeronautical Engineering department covering areas such as fabrications and natural fibre composites.

An expert panel of judges representing the R&D community provided feedback to participants and declared winning projects from each department.


IET Mumbai LN organised Finance Guru – a seminar on the essentials of finance for students at SVKM’s Mukesh Patel School of Technology and Management, Mumbai.

Mr Qais Mirkar, Associate Director, Standard Chartered Bank discussed the role of finance in entrepreneurship decisions. Focused on start-ups, the discussion revolved around issues including sources of funding, private equity players and legislations governing start-ups. He also shared valuable learnings from his career in banking and working with Small and Medium Scale enterprises.

The session was a great starting point for aspiring entrepreneurs to understand the various funding options available for start-ups. Members and volunteers of the IET Mumbai LN facilitated the event.

Prof Dik Morling, IET Accreditor & Emeritus Professor, University of Westminster, delivered a lecture on the history of VLSI Design at Saveetha School of Engineering, Chennai.

Prof Morling talked about the invention of transistors by Bell Labs in 1947 which was a turning point in the field, shifting the focus from vacuum tubes to solid-state devices, so that today, integrated circuits can be manufactured containing billions of transistors.

As the integrated circuit manufacturing technology improved, the increasing technology of the microchips became a challenge for designers. This was solved by the introduction of computer-aided design software and the adoption of rigorous design methodologies to get the circuit design “Right First Time”. Moore’s law has been remarkably accurate in predicting the exponential increase in circuit size and speed up to now. However, this cannot last as the sizes of transistors are now approaching atomic dimensions. The challenge for tomorrow’s circuit and software designers will be to continue the improvement in electronic performance without the help of improved fabrication technology. Prof Morling also discussed latest developments in the field of VLSI and its novel applications.

Dr P Shankar, Principal, Saveetha School of Engineering, senior faculty members and volunteers of IET Chennai LN were present.

Prof Morling also spent some time with the senior faculty team to help them understand the process and the benefits of International Accreditation. Dr P Shankar (Principal), Heads of Departments and Faculty Coordinators were present.


Saveetha School of Engineering organised workshops, technical contests and project exhibitions as part of the Le Incasso Technical Fest.

The workshop series featured sessions on popular computing tools and programming languages including MATLAB, LabVIEW & Image Processing and Mobile App Development. The sessions facilitated by experts were aimed at increasing the industry readiness of students and equipping them with practical skills. Students gained experience in handling basic embedded systems and microcontrollers, design and implementation of Android apps and designing their own circuits as outcomes of the workshop.

Technical competitions on circuit debugging, CADD and Mobile Application Development were also organised for students.

A project competition showcased some innovative student projects conceptualized to address pressing societal challenges. The winning projects were chosen on innovation, feasibility of implementation and level of societal impact.

The Young Professionals Section of IET Chennai LN and the IET Student Chapter at VIT University organised the fourth edition of VIT- Technical United Conference. The event is credited to be one of its kind among the Technical Model United Nations Conferences.

The conference is a Technology focused version of the Model United Nations format (also known as Model UN or MUN) - an educational simulation competition in which students learn about diplomacy, international relations and the United Nations. The participants are referred to as delegates and they present their position/solution to real/fictional technology related challenges through well researched presentations.

Some of the challenges that the VIT Technical MUN Delegates discussed were:

Legalisation of Banned Technologies: Delegates had to come up with technology solutions for Lethal Autonomous Weapon Systems (LAWS), which are capable of identifying and suppressing lethal threats and also have the ability to wipe out mankind when used irresponsibly.

The Stuxnet Crisis: A malicious code had crept into the heart of Nuclear Reactors around the world that was capable of bringing them down. Participants had to come up with ways to protect their countries’ reactors and nuclear grids from this deadly virus.

Development and Exploration of Space: The world’s greatest extra-terrestrial threat was believed to have ended in Montenegro (South Eastern Europe) in 2014. But increasing numbers of unexplained electrical outage and radiation bursts suggest that the world might still witness this. Delegates had to decide the course of action to tackle the situation.

Disease and Pandemic Containment: The Ebola outbreak and the alarming fatality rate uncovered many gaps in our existing medical systems. Delegates had to come up with solutions to contain the virus and its spread before it reached pandemic proportions.

Best presentations from each committee were awarded. IET Chennai LN YP Chairman, Prof D S John Deva Prasanna inaugurated the event. Members and senior volunteers of the IET Chennai LN were present.


In the previous edition of Member Matters, we brought to you IET Mumbai LN’s approach to align its plans and activities with the IET India strategy. In this issue, Dr Madhuri Joshi, Chair of the IET Pune Local Network shares the initiatives
of the LN that will help to take forward the overall India strategy.

IET Pune LN launched its Community Awareness Programme to garner interest of students and working engineers in the sectors that have been identified by IET India as its focus areas namely - Solar Energy, Internet of Things (IoT) and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV). Events including seminars, technical talks, conferences and lectures around these themes will be organised. The initiatives will help the LN to reach out to IET members and subject matter experts for their guidance and inputs in these sector activities. The Programme will also provide opportunities for non-members to connect with areas of their interest, thus increasing the circle of influence for the IET. The Programme will also focus on inculcating problem-solving skills and igniting an entrepreneurial mindset among engineering students.

In the 2015-2017 strategy for India, Education has been identified as a key a focus area.To strengthen this focus, the Pune LN has started the Women in Engineering group. This initiative brings women engineers together to discuss challenges related to their engineering career, research etc. The group is also working to make core engineering a desirable career option for women.

With a clear focus on sectors and education, the Pune LN is taking forward the IET vision of Working to Engineer a Better World.

The 2015 edition of IET Pinkerton Lecture was held in Bangalore on July 9, 2015. The topic for this year’s lecture was ‘Reimagining Society through the Internet of Everything’ and was delivered by Dr. Robert Pepper, Vice President, Global Technology Policy, Cisco.

Dr Pepper identified critical global challenges and how the Internet of Everything (IoE) can help address them through digital technology. He stressed on the importance of transforming data into actionable insights. He also said that critical technology and public policy issues could accelerate or stall the transformational benefits of IoE and therefore execution should be the key focus for India.Referring to the Digital India Week, Dr Pepper said that it was a key initiative because it spelt out “the how” of Digital India’s vision. Reflecting on the significance of the Pinkerton Lecture, Dr.Pepper said,“The world is going digital and IoT is redefining customisation and innovation in engineering. The IET Pinkerton lecture is a unique proposition by the IET to ensure that the technical community is kept abreast with the latest trends in engineering and technology and IoT/IoE is definitely the next market transition for all sectors of engineering and society. I am honoured to be part of this important conversation”.

Key take -aways
  1. Internet generates huge volumes of data. But data alone does not have meaning. Bridging the gap between data and analysis actually makes data useful and helpful to people. That’s the difference between Internet & IoT.
    • In 1984 only 1000 devices were connected. Today it is at 14 billion. In 2019, 24.5 billion devices will be connected.
    • In 2019, half the world population will be on IoT making it fastest technology adoption.
    • Value at stake for Internet of Everything in India will be $511 billion by 2025
    • 2,27,000 networking jobs in India will not be filled in 2016 because there are not enough skilled people.
    • ‘Network readiness’ correlates strongly with global competitiveness and India has slipped 80 places in global rank.
    • India needs to work faster to improve network readiness and campaigns like Digital India Week, if implemented well, could help in this direction.
    • Technology adoption improves living standards but increases digital divide. India should focus on making technology available to everyone to prevent this.
  2. Over 200 delegates from leading technology organisations including Samsung, GE, L&T Technologies, Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC), HCL Technologies, Capgemini, Atkins, BEL, Netapp, Infosys and Cisco attended the event. Students and faculty from IIIT-B, PES University and NIT- Surathkal also attended the lecture. The event provided an opportunity to the delegates to ask questions on IoT and get expert insights from Dr. Pepper. Photos from the event have been posted on the IET India Facebook page.

Dr Robert Pepper also delivered talks at IET Academic Affiliate colleges – SRM University and Hindustan University in Chennai. We will bring you snapshots from these sessions in our upcoming issue.
