ISA National Students Meet - 2014

February 19 - 20 , 2014


                                                                                             -Setting the standards for automation

A National level ISA- Students Meet’14 was organized by the department of Instrumentation and Control Engineering, SRM University, on 19th and 20th February 2014. ISA stands for International Society of Automation which encourages its office bearers to conduct Student’s meet every year and this time it was coordinated by the faculty & students of ICE department. The Chief guest on the inaugural day was Mr.Claudios Fernando, Director, Woory Automotives India Private Limited and the guest speaker was Mr.Dominic Savio, General Manager (THS India), Valeo India Private Limited.

The Chief guest presented his ideas on engineering studies, its needs, limitations and the advantages. He focused upon the requirements of a student for a successful career i.e. the industrial requirements from students. According to the speaker, an engineer should have the willingness to get his ‘hands dirty’, should be hardworking, proactive and should have the attitude to grab all opportunities.

The Chief guest and guest speakers were felicitated by Dr.Ranganath Muthu, President ISA South India Section who highlighted about the history of ISA and the purpose of the International Society of Automation. The inaugural ended with the release of proceedings - CD by the Chief guest. The inaugural function was followed by two tech talks by Mr.Dominic Savio and Mr.Visveswaran of National Instruments. The former enlightened upon the Automotive Market, its growth rate, manufacturers and the current technologies followed by the latter who enumerated the new NI products available for students.

The youngest CEO’s in India, Mr. Sanjay Kumaran and Mr. Shravan Kumaran inspired the gathering in their unique way. The two brothers run a company called ‘‘Go Dimensions” They believe in three key words- “Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Dreams”. For an application to be accepted, it should have a brilliant design. The two young CEO’s got most of their applications approved within 1 week and all the applications had a rating of above 4.5/5.

The applications developed by them are- Catch me cop, Alphabets board, Player planet, Color palette, Emergency booth, Super hero EI5, Car racing HD.The process of developed as mentioned by the speaker were- requirements of the people must be satisfied, present trend must be taken into account, the design should be brilliant, the coding should be bug free, the application will be tested, then the application will be deployed.The key points to entrepreneurship in brief are having a strong idea, a stronger you, a good business plan, and a source for funding.They concluded their speech by saying- “Genius is 1% inspiration and 99% perspiration”.

The ISA meet concluded with the valedictory function for which the Chief Guest was Mr. Jayaprakash Natarajan, Secretary, ISA South India Section and the guest speaker Mr.Vishnu Vardhan, M.D of Trend Automation Pvt Ltd. They explained about all the major components used in the in the industries and the career opportunities for IC engineers. The chief guest distributed the certificates and prizes to award winners of the different events.

As a part of the student’s meet, there were 5 interesting events, held in different venues of techpark and mini halls includes Circuit Debuggers, Conquest, Paper Presentation, Control LABVIEW, Electro Warriors and Robot Display. Students participated from various colleges in huge numbers. Price money were given to those students who were the first, first runners up and second runners up in the paper presentation event.

Research Day

February 28 , 2014
The Indian space agency will take its first step towards a manned space mission by testing its third generation heavy rocket Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle (GSLV) and also the crew module this year, said a top official. Dr. K. Radhakrishnan, Chairman, Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), said end of May or beginning of June would see the experimental flight of GSLV-Mark III rocket that would be carrying a crew module. He was the chief guest at the SRM University's Research Day function.
The rocket will go up to an altitude of 120 km. The crew module will be tested on its reentry into the atmosphere, he told reporters on the function's sidelines.He said the purpose of the mission is to do the characterisation of the GSLV-Mark III in the atmospheric stage of the flight. "The rocket would touch a velocity of 5 km per second. The upper cryogenic stage will be passive," said Dr. K. Radhakrishnan .
He said aerodynamically the experimental rocket will be similar to the real GSLV-Mark III rocket. On the launch of India's second navigational satellite, Radhakrishnan said the IRNSS-1B (Indian Regional Navigational Satellite System) will be launched after March 31. According to Radhakrishnan, the navigation satellite will be moved from Bangalore to the rocket port in Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh March 3.
He said the satellite will be launched using another rocket called Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle (PSLV). ISRO chairman K Radhakrishnan on Friday urged students to consider the benefits of a career in research in the space sector. Pointing to ISRO as a place of international imminence in space applications, he pushed the idea of students taking up a career at ISRO, given the multi-disciplinary and pioneering opportunities it presents, apart from the benefit to the people of the country.
Speaking at the Research Day celebrations at the SRM University near Chennai, Radhakrishnan outlined the achievements and vision for ISRO. He also asked the students of the University to strengthen their core skills with an eye on a career of research in the space sector. “As young engineers, it (space research) provides to you a platform where you can do inter-disciplinary, frontline technology development. And, finally, the one that will be used or will be useful for the people of the country. So, this is a place you can put your engagements for good use and then you can think of your career, take a decision on the opportunity provided by the space technology and application for a country like India,” he said.
Dr. K. Radhakrishnan heaped praise on SRM University for its interest in space technology, citing the launch of the SRMSAT student satellite in October 2011 aboard the PSLV-C18. The nanosatellite has completed 12,000 orbits around the Earth, and is tracked by students from a ground station on the SRM campus.The varsity’s founder and chancellor, T R Pachamuthu, however took on a different tack while speaking on the merits on a research career. “Yes, we launched it. Yes, we have received praise for it. But, how long can we keep talking about it? We need to keep doing something new in the field of research. So, I ask you to consider placing greater interest in this area,” he told the thousands of students gathered for the event.
Dr. K. Radhakrishnan and Dr. T. R. Pachamuthu handed over medals to the winners of competitive abstract presentation held for the varsity’s students to mark Research Day. The competition had seen the submission of over 600 abstracts from students, out of which about 500 had been shortlisted and presented.
