Electronics and Communication Engineering plays an important role in futuristic technologies both in Indian and global markets. For example, 6G, Glasses-free 3D-TV, Autonomous driving, Industry 4.0, Augmented/Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence etc. The Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) at SRM University-AP is organising a panel session on the topic “Higher Studies Opportunities with ECE” on July 10, 2021, at 6.00 pm. In the session moderated by Assistant Professor Dr Sunil Chinnadurai, Assistant Professor Dr Inbarasan Muniraj will educate the attendees on the reasons why one should choose Electronics and Communication Engineering rather than Computer Science Engineering.

The syllabus at SRM University-AP brings up industry-ready ECE graduates incorporating the design thinking curriculum along with advanced courses such as AI-ML, IoT, Embedded systems, Advanced VLSI, Signal Processing, Communication Systems, and Networking which are the current needs of the industry. ECE better than other engineering branches because the top inventions like mobile phone, Computer, Satellite, Internet, 5G/6G, IoT, AR/VR, Holograms, Machine Learning, AI, smart homes/cities, together with some of the recent necessities like CT scan, Oximeter, infrared thermometers are all the products of ECE.

Let us BREAK the myth that the Electronics and Communication Engineering branch is a hard nut to crack and know about higher education possibilities by joining the interactive webinar on July 10, 2021, at 6.00 pm.

Many young people find it strenuous to deal with unexpected events in their lives. It is vital to be kind to your mental health. Coping skills help an individual to face and overcome stressful circumstances. To educate students on Coping Skills, the Department of Students’ Affairs is initiating a virtual talk on July 03, 2021, at 3.00 pm with Ms Aayushi Sharma, the Student Counsellor of our university.

Young people, when they face difficulties in their careers, can become easily stressed. In simple terms, coping skills are the ability one needs to handle any situation in life with intelligence and resilience. The coping mechanisms and the capacity to deal with problems vary among individuals. Everyone experiences ups and downs in life, no matter what they are. Some face situations with courage, and others succumb to dangerous steps. Thus, coping skills are essential to deal with this tough, competitive world.

SRM University-AP takes care of the complete development of students which includes their emotional well-being. Therefore, all students are invited to attend the interactive session on July 03, 2021, at 3.00 pm to learn healthy practices for life.

Biochar has an enormous potential in addressing global issues and can act as a catalyst in achieving sustainable development goals (SDGs). Dr Lakhveer Singh, Assistant professor in the Department of Environmental Science, SRM University-AP has co-authored and published a paper on the title “Biochar for environmental sustainability in the energy-water-agroecosystem nexus” in the research journal “Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews” with an Impact factor of 14.98.

Global warming, management of soil health, remediation of contaminated wastewater, and sustainable alternate source of energy are the major challenges of the 21st century. Biochar produced from waste biomass (crop residues, algal biomass, municipal waste, etc.) has dual advantages of waste management along with its application in different sectors. Biochar addition to soil improves soil health, porosity and aeration which mitigates greenhouse gas emission from soil.

In this manuscript, Dr Lakhveer Singh discusses the potential of biochar for bioenergy production (biogas and biological hydrogen production), greenhouse gases mitigation, carbon sequestration in soils, and wastewater remediation are discussed in detail along with the challenges and future prospects of biochar. This work has been executed in collaborations with the National Institute of Hydrology, Jal Vigyan Bhawan, Roorkee; J.C. Bose University of Science and Technology; YMCA, Faridabad; and IIT Delhi.

Dr Singh is an Editorial Board member of the Journal of Biomass Conversion and Biorefinery – Springer (I.F. 2.60) and a Guest Editor for Bioresource Technology Reports- Elsevier.

IdeaMIC is a platform to express innovative ideas of entrepreneurship and leadership. The 001A edition of IdeaMIC by the Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovation at SRM University-AP, Andhra Pradesh organises a webinar which will be held on July 15, 2021, at 6.00 pm. The technological innovator and recipient of the Commonwealth London-Youth Achievement Award for Excellence Mr Satya Illa will be the industry evaluator for the month.

Mr Satya Illa is the innovative brain behind the shockproof three-phase electrical motor pump that prevents electric shock from motor starters. He had worked with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) and had been involved in a project incubated by the Bala Vikasa International Centre, Hyderabad. He identifies lack of awareness and poor maintenance of electric devices as the causes for fatalities due to electrocution among farmers.

Every month top 10 ideas are allowed to be presented through IdeaMIC at SRM University-AP. The best idea is given an opportunity to enroll with Hatchlab Research Centre– a TBI of SRM University-AP and the innovator can avail of all the benefits and support from the university. The best and novel idea of the month also gets a reward of Rs. 5000 towards developing the prototype or implementation of the idea.

Leaders from the student council of SRM Ecell, the President of SRM Ecell, senior faculty members, domain experts, and one special guest from the industry will be available in the panel for screening and evaluating the ideas. Once the pandemic is over and the university starts the classes in their full capacities, apart from the live interactions and suggestions, there would be on-campus learning sessions for young innovators across the state.

The Department of Students’ Affairs at SRM University-AP, Andhra Pradesh is all set to feature the brilliant Ms Sreelekha Bhuvaneswari in the upcoming segment of “The Newsmakers” scheduled on July 10, 2021, at 5.30 pm. Ms Sreelekha is a BSc physics final year student who brought laurel to the university by filing a patent for her work titled “A fibre material with moisture retention capacity with thermal tolerance and a method for manufacture” under the guidance of Dr Sabyasachi Mukhopadhyay, Assistant Professor in the Department of Physics, SRM University-AP.

The project, with the patent application number 202141023375, develops a methodology to design a fabric cloth that would replace the use of air conditioners. This cloth design is inspired by Saharan silver ants which regulate their body temperatures in the scorching desert heat and also from the cooling properties of clay. This research would significantly scale down the usage of AC and other cooling devices in warm places, thus reducing the use of electricity and emission of greenhouse gases to the environment. As this cloth would be environment friendly with long durability and cost-efficiency, Sreelekha hopes that this research would bridge the socioeconomic divide of haves and have-nots between communities.

“The Newsmakers” session on July 10, 2021, at 5.30 pm will feature Ms Sreelekha narrate her inspiring journey which started with the incredible experience at SRM University-AP that eventually enabled her to be an inventor at a young age.
