Students From Hannam University, South Korea Visit SRM

Students From Hannam University, South Korea Visit SRM

SRM was the destination for 11 enthusiastic students from South Korea’s Hannam University for a 4-week immersion programme.

The visits are part of the ongoing HNU- SRM Linton Global Leadership Programme between the two institutions, where SRM has designed a credit based module with the following objectives, to improve overall communication skills, and study basic grammar and conversation in Hindi, to gain an understanding of the IT sector in India, and its contribution to the country’s economic development, to know more about Indian culture, economy and businesses, to better understand globalisation and its impact.

SRM’s relationship with Hannam University embraces both student mobility and faculty exchange. Taking a long-term view of the importance of the bilateral relationship with India, Hannam University has established an India Centre on its campus, where SRM faculty are deputed on long-term teaching assignments, giving greater shape and meaning to the relationship.

The India- South Korea relationship goes back over 2000 years, but the last three decades have seen a significant deepening of the partnership in trade, business, and culture. South Korea is a major investor in India in automobiles, IT and electronics. SRM with its proven excellence in engineering education is well poised to play an important role in the emerging relationship through academic and research links.

John Thiruvadigal, Dean of Sciences, Faculty of Physics and Nanotechnology, Dr. Gridhar U Kulkarni, Director, Center for Nano and Soft Matter Sciences, Bangalore, Prof. Kasmir Raja, Executive member of ISCA, Chennai Chapter, & Dean of Research, Dr. C. Preferencial Kala, Head of the department, faculty of Physics and Nanotechnology, and Dr. Alagiriswamy A A, Treasurer, ISCA, Chennai Chapter

The one-day special talk on Friday, Dec. 29, 2017, entitled “Doing Nanotech: Invent, Translate & Succeed” was successfully organized by the Indian Science Congress Association, Chennai Chapter. The influential talk was delivered by the educational expert, Dr. Gridhar U Kulkarni, who has been serving as Director at Center for Nano and Soft Matter Sciences, Prof. U.R. Rao Road, Jallahalli, Bengaluru - 560 013. With the active participants of more than 160, the key driving force to organize this talk with the joint hands/co-host of the faculty of Physics and Nanotechnology, at well-equipped MBA seminar hall, SRM Institute of Science and Technology, Kattankulathur-603203 has multifaceted values on addressing the focal theme of “unreached the reached” especially to the young researchers, and those who look for the strategies towards market-driven commercialization processes.

The objectives of the special talk were to provide insights of nano concepts, to identify the contextual influences of functional requirements to the value-added products, and to discuss the possible approaches for formulating of market/readiness level indicators (MLI/RLI). The feedback of the participants from distinct departments confirmed that the special talk was appreciated as well as that there is a compelling need for practical concerns and for more employable opportunities towards understanding nano market.

The special day was structured with an invocation, following with the introduction of the speaker, keynote address and enhanced interactions with the invited speaker. At the outset, the brief introduction about the speaker was given by Dr. Abhay A Saghade, Research Associate Professor, Faculty of Physics and Nanotechnology, Research Institute, SRM Institute of Science and Technology, and he shared some of the experiences with the early works had done with him. Prof. Kasmir Raja, Executive member of ISCA, Chennai Chapter, and Dean of Research, SRM Institute of Science and Technology provided the keynote address. In his initial address, he mentioned about the historical developments of ISCA and highlighted a few objectives of Science and Technology policies.

Prof. Giridhar U Kulkarni initiated his lecture with the revisited fundamental concepts of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology along with few cited examples. The highlights of the talk were related to the historical developments of quantum mechanics, concepts of nanoworld and its dimensional properties, fascination of integration of collective properties of nanoscale materials such as size-dependent properties leading to quantum confinements, growth of era of nanotechnology fields, perspectives of understanding from nanomaterials-to-synthetic procedures-to-nano-driven products, along with the day-to-day functional requirements of current employers’/latest applications.

The phrase of famous American theoretical physicist, Sir Richard Phillips Feynman, known for his work in the path of “Miniaturization Alone Is Not Nano” has been revisited. The educational expert has introduced the new concepts of market/readiness level indicators (MLI/RLI) and addressed the societal needs/roadblocks of commercialization towards nano market.

Thanks to him for the dissemination of his research expertise to the ambient audience that pertaining to the latest developments of ultrafast sensors’ response/recovery time, nanofiber as mesh electrode, skin-based Velroc (contemporary idea to nanoproduct), devised guidelines to the physical fitness programmers while dehydration after exercises along with the case studies.

At the closure of the post-morning session, Dr. Alagiriswamy A A, Treasurer, Chennai Chapter, & Asst. Prof. (Sr. Grade.), Faculty of Physics and Nanotechnology, SRM Institute of Science and Technology, gave the formal vote of thanks. To further, while voting the favour of Chennai Chapter’s lines-of-actions, he expressed the concerns at what the speaker called the lack of concerns as technology roadblocks and maintaining that the views of young minds were side-lined.

A Guest Lecture On The Overview of doing Research in English Studies


A Guest Lecture On The Overview of doing Research in English Studies

The Indian Science Association Chennai Chapter in association with SRM Institute of Science and Technology Department of English and Foreign Languages organized a guest lecture session over An Overview of doing Research in English Studies, for the staff and students of the department on January 2, 2018. The resource person for the event was Dr. Rajeevnath Ramnath, Associate Professor, Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, the University of Nottingham Campus in Malaysia.

Dr. C. Muthamizhchelvan, convener, ISCA-Chennai Chapter and Director of Science and Technology delivered the keynote address. Dr. Cauveri, Asst. Professor, EFL welcomed the gathering and introduced the resource person to the audience. 

During this interactive and thought-provoking session, Dr. Ramnath reflected upon the scope and various plausible areas for researchers in English language and literature at post graduation and doctoral levels. He specifically addressed the key components which result in successful research projects in English and associated genres and quoted several instances where research outputs did not do justice to research questions. He laid emphasis on developing an understanding and following an apt methodology for carrying out research in English studies.

Hence, talk included the methodology to be followed in identifying a research problem, analysis of available data, deducing results, and producing relevant and cohesive thesis etc. Dr. Ramnath also answered queries pertaining to research in English Language Teaching and Literature during the questioning and discussion session followed by his special talk. The talk was attended by the staff members, research scholars, and post graduate students of the department of English and Foreign Languages.

The talk came to its end with a deliverance of vote of thanks by Dr. K. Anbazhagan, Head and Professor, EFL.
