Competition will cover hardware and software segments

The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) on Tuesday communicated to hundreds of engineering students its expectations for Smart India Hackathon 2018, a digital product development competition initiated last year in pursuit of innovative solutions for problem statements of Central and State Ministries, departments, and government undertakings.

About 200 solutions arrived at in the 2017 edition have been adopted after some modifications. This time, the response is expected to be much more since the competition will cover hardware segment as well alongside software, Alok Prakash Mittal, Member Secretary, AICTE, who addressed the students and faculties of engineering colleges, said.

Teaming up with Inter Institutional Inclusive Innovation Centre (i4C), and Persistent Systems like last year, the AICTE will be conducting the finale of software competition during March and hardware competition during May-June.

The software competition will be of over 36-hour duration, and the hardware competition will be conducted for a stretch of five days. Over 45 Union ministries and departments and 18 State governments have already joined the grand initiative, the gathering was told by Indhupriya Subramanian of Persistent Systems, Pune.

The competition envisaging crowd sourcing of solutions for the country’s daunting problems and for improving governance and quality of life has been conceptualised by the MHRD as a funnel for ‘Startup India’ campaign, and envisaging a digital India to bridge the digital divide and put governance within everyone's reach in the country, according to the AICTE.

A total of 340 problem statements for software competition and 68 for hardware competition have been made available for submission of ideas online at https://innovate.mygov.in/

At each of the centres where the competitions are to be held, cash awards, Rs. 1 lakh for first prize, Rs. 75,000 for first runner-up, and Rs. 50,000 for second runner-up will be given under the two categories, an AICTE statement said.

R. Balamurugan, Regional Officer, AICTE Southern Regional Office, Chennai, made a presentation on the approval procedures for engineering programmes for 2018-19.

P. Selvaraj, Secretary, Consortium of Self-Financing Professional, Arts and Science Colleges in Tamil Nadu, sought inclusion of experts to be inducted as adjunct faculty for consideration of student-faculty ratio.

N. Kanagasabapathi, Vice-President, Tamil Nadu Small and Tiny Industries Association (Tiruchi Region), the guest of honour, explained the scope for students to transform into entrepreneurs through availing government schemes.

Hands-on exposure must for students’

Quote:
The hands-on approach allows students to apply knowledge to cutting-edge research. Similarly, the use of instrumentation and embedded technology in the classroom also prepares students to tackle problems in areas as varied as agriculture, automation and mechatronics, said Bhavesh Mistry, Senior Group Manager, Academic Programmes, National Instruments, Austin, Texas, the USA, on Monday. Interacting with National Institute of Technology - Tiruchi (NIT-T), he said the next generation of engineers will have to work at the convergence of electrical, mechanical and control systems that will enable advanced applications across areas like cyber-physical systems, automotive and wireless communications as well as address the urgent societal needs in healthcare and the environment.

In a talk on ‘Preparing the students for 21st Century System Design Challenges’, Mr. Mistry said it was critical to provide the students with hands-on, project-based learning to build skills that will play a role in India’s industrial future.

Experiences in the teaching laboratory from basic concepts to complex systems will ensure they understand how to design engineering systems that can have a true impact across various areas, he said.

Mini Shaji Thomas, Director, NITT, also spoke.

Medical physics programme of BDU gets AERB nod

Quote:
Course is an inter-disciplinary one

The M.Sc. Medical Physics programme offered by the Department of Medical Physics of Bharathidasan University has been recently approved by the Atomic Energy Regulatory Board (AERB).

The Department has been offering the course specialised in radiation technology applied to cancer therapy in collaboration with GVN Hospital, Tiruchi since 2006.


The course is an inter-disciplinary one that bridges physics with medicine and biology for applications in healthcare particularly in radiation cancer therapy.

Due to increased health care awareness in India, several hospitals have installed state-of-the-art equipment for diagnostics and therapeutic treatment of cancer patients, and there has been increasing demand for well-trained medical physicists and radiation safety officers in the country, a release from the university said.

To address the shortage of skilled work force in these fastest growing areas of cancer radiation therapy, Bharathidasan University is also engaged in training PG students as qualified medical physicists and radiation safety officers.

G. Gopinath, Registrar, said medical physics was one of the fastest growing areas of employment for physicists. They play crucial roles in radiology, nuclear medicine and radiation oncology. These fields use very sophisticated and expensive equipment, and medical physicists are responsible for much of its plan, execution, testing and quality assurance.

K. Jeganathan, Head, Department of Medical Physics of the varsity, said the minimum syllabi prescribed by AERB included practicals in the university and the hospital. Successful completion of the programme and one-year internship in radiation therapy, meeting AERB criteria, will help post graduates qualify as medical physicist and get employment in medical institutions.

On successful completion of the programme, the students will have to pass an examination conducted by BARC-DAE to become eligible to be appointed as Radiological Safety Officer in medical institutions, he said
