It’s the time for ‘Do Engineering’ [Nov 2011]

November 25, 2011 5:41 am

National Instruments (NI), one of the leaders in Graphical System Design along with NICE (Nurturing Innovation and Creativity in Education) Committee hosted the 10th Annual Educator’s Day 2011, India’s largest academic platform for science and engineering professors. The two-day event  was focused on the need to ‘Do Engineering’, which plays a pivotal role in enabling students and teachers on the effective use of technology in education.
Jeff Kodosky, NI Business and Technology Fellow, Co-founder and ‘Father of LabVIEW’ focused on the importance of using the Graphical System Design approach to solve today’s grand challenges for a sustainable future and on the relevance of LabVIEW, as one of the most intuitive programming environment available for engineers and scientists. Addressing the professors, he emphasised on the importance of teaching ‘Do Engineering’ to the students, which will in turn accelerate productivity, innovation and discovery.
Jayaram Pillai, MD, IndRA (India, Russia and Arabia), National Instruments said, “Engineers should focus on core engineering, which has an immense potential for growth, like IT. With this platform, we are inspiring engineers to ‘Do Engineering’ rather than ‘Learn Engineering’. He spoke about India’s vision 2020 and how we need engineers and scientists to be ready to solve future challenging problems. He further added, “This is only possible with the continuous support of professors to encourage students to DO Engineering and also students should stay true to their core engineering concepts and focus on higher education.”
The National level technical competitions NIYANTRA and VIMANTRA staged its Grand Finale on the 13th Oct. The winner of VIMantra for the research category is Pranjal Chaubey from IIT Kanpur for his project on ‘Design of a data acquisition system’. For the student category the winner is IIT Roorkee for their project on ‘Virtual Lab’.
