    The Department of Computer Science and Engineering at SRM University-AP commenced a one-month-long programme on “Youth Empowerment and Skill Development” with its inaugural ceremony on August 29, 2022. The programme, organised under the ISR activities of the university, is an exclusive initiative for young people living in the vicinal rural communities to enhance and develop their technical and computing skills that will augment their possibilities for a better livelihood.

    At the inaugural function, Prof T Ragunathan, Associate Dean- SEAS & the Head of the Department welcomed the gathering. He expressed the university’s objective in conducting the programme and how it would create far-reaching implications in the personal and professional development of the rural youth. Honourable Vice-Chancellor Prof VS Rao delivered the inaugural address and appreciated such dedicated and active initiatives aiming at the holistic welfare of society. “Equitable development of the society should be the vision of the modern education, enabling the young generation of this country to grow into the greatest wealth of our nation”, he remarked.

    Prof BV Babu, Dean-SEAS presided over and emphasised the necessity of facilitating and preparing the youth to face the challenges of a technology-driven world. Digital literacy and computer awareness have become the inevitability of present times, causing a marked shift in the operations of the secondary and tertiary sectors. Registrar Dr R Premkumar also addressed the gathering. An empowered youth with digital and computer expertise will keep the country’s future safe in their hands. The Programme coordinator Dr V Dinesh Reddy, Assistant Professor- Department of Computer Science and Engineering proposed the vote of thanks.

    The programme received an overwhelming response from around fifteen neighbouring villages. As part of the workshop, courses will be offered on web designing and internet technologies such as Front-End Development and Microsoft Office Suite.. Students will be introduced to basic web designing principles, MS office, Javascript, HTML, etc. Classes will be held from August 29, 2022, to September 28, 2022, from 5.30 pm to 7.00 pm at the university premises.

  • Patient’s E Healthcare Records Management System August 23, 2022

    patient’s-e-healthcare-records-management-systemPublishing papers in Q1 journals is a remarkable accomplishment for research enthusiasts. Assistant Professor Dr Priyanka of the Department of Computer Science and Engineering published her latest research paper in the IEEE Access journal. The paper titled PRMS: Design and Development of Patients’ E-Healthcare Records Management System for Privacy Preservation in Third Party Cloud Platforms has an impact factor of 3.476. Kirtirajsinh Zala, Hiren Kumar Thakkar, Rajendrasinh Jadeja, Priyanka Singh, Ketan Kotecha, and Madhu Shukla co-authored the work with Dr Priyanka.


    In the digital era, personal data storage on public platforms is a significant cause of concern with severe security and privacy ramifications. This is true especially in e-health data management since patients’ health data must be managed following a slew of established standards. The Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) primarily provide computing and storage resources. However, data security in the cloud is still a major concern. To overcome e-healthcare records privacy issues in a third-party cloud, we designed a Patient’s E Healthcare Records Management System (PRMS) that focuses on latency and throughput. Moreover, the proposed PRMS system is compared with Blockchain platforms such as Hyperledger Fabric v0.6 and Etherium 1.5.8 against latency and throughput by adjusting the workload for each platform up to 10,000 transactions per second. The proposed PRMS is compared to the Secure and Robust Healthcare Based Blockchain (SRHB) approach using Yahoo Cloud Serving Benchmark (YCSB) and small bank datasets. The experimental results indicate that deploying PRMS on Amazon Web Services decreases System Execution Time (SET) and the Average Delay (AD) time by 2.4%, 8.33%, and 25.15%, 15.26%, respectively. Deploying PRMS on the Google Cloud Platform decreases System Execution Time (SET) and Average Delay (AD) by 2.27%, 2.4%, and 2.72%, 4.73% AD, respectively.
