Apart from academic excellence, a student should grow into an ideal human being also with innovative thoughts.
Of particular interest was the Chief Guest very lucid and perspicacious discourse on the Convergence of Microelectronics, VLSI, Manufacturing facilities of electronic devices in India and Usage of software in electronics. Tapping into his colossal reserve of knowledge, Dr. R.P Agarwal predicted that with the exponential growth of new technologies and paradigm shifting concepts such as VLSI and Optoelectronic devices cloud computing and distributed processing, Utopia may be much closer than was once imagined.
The Guest of Honor, Dr. R.K Singh said “This institute has become a center of innovation in the field of teaching and learning process and concluded that Quantum Global Campus is quite lucky because of its proximity to IIT Roorkee too, which motivates students to keep them abreast with the latest innovation in Technology. The eagerness that I have seen in the eyes of the faculty and the students, the depth of the ideas they have presented and analyzed, fill me with indescribable joy and elation.”
The Chairman, Shri Ajay Goyal Ji said “The ETEC-2015 aims to bring together Technologists, Industrialists, Engineers and Researchers working in academic institutes, research laboratories and industries on a common platform to interact with one another and to provide an opportunity to present their work as well as exchange information and understanding on recent advancement in the field of Electronic engineering”.
The presentations encompassed the entire spectrum of the Electronics field, with many of the presenters touching upon state of the art disciplines such as VLSI, Intelligent power systems, Micro Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) and Optical fiber communication systems.
The Director of Quantum School of Technology, Dr Gulshan Chauhan apprised that our vision is to prepare global competent engineers, technocrats and researchers that will cater to a global workforce. Our aim is not only to provide a world class engineering education, but also indicate a progressive attitude towards the betterment of society. He said “In view of the spectacular transformations our society is presently going through, it seems almost futile to speculate about the advances that will be made even in five years time, the only thing that can be stated for certain is that the developments in this field will be beyond our wide aspirations.
