• Let your resume speak for yourself April 29, 2022

    Resume reviewA resume comes across the recruiter or employer way before you. It single-handedly opens the door to a world of opportunities. Making yourself visible in the crowd of applicants is a craft of intelligence. Your resume should portray the most refined version of yourself in a strictly competent world. Reviewing your resume is advantageous since the reviewer evaluates from an employer’s perspective.

    The Directorate of Alumni Affairs has planned to start Live Mentoring Programs by SRM-AP Alumni from different domains. The first mentoring session, Resume review, is scheduled to be organised this Saturday through zoom. Students can share their updated resumes with the mentors during the session to get practical input from them.

    Date: April 30, 2022

    Time: 5.00 pm to 6.00 pm IST

    Be ready with your updated resume and join the mentoring session.

  • Redefining the beauty standards April 22, 2022

    Bodily autonomyImagine being taught from a very young age that you must cater to the expectations of each and everyone around you but not yours. Think about the times you tried to fit yourself in someone else’s set of standards. Falling into the rabbit hole of hating our own appearance has become easy ever since the media started setting unrealistic beauty standards. Rise of social media fitness gurus and influencers, who are obsessed with the unreasonable “flaws” in our bodies, accelerated the process. This led to a myriad of issues ranging from eating disorders to anxiety and depression.

    Claiming the existence of an alternate explanation of beauty outside the stereotypes is thus the need of the hour. Cherishing yourself the way you are is not just an act of love but a socio-political statement. The ability to choose how to use your own body, irrespective of an outsider’s opinion, is an essential right of every individual.

    The Department of Student Affairs is organising a session, ‘Reclaiming bodily autonomy’ with Ms Sridevi Srinath to help you unlearn the standard narratives of beauty. Let you be the one who decides what to do and what not to do with your body.

    Date: April 23, 2022

    Time: 11.00 am to 12.00 pm IST

    Join the session and unlearn the stereotypes!

  • Ultra-low power and agile IC design for novel sensor nodes for the Internet of Things April 20, 2022

    scalar conservation

    The Internet of Things (IoT) has greatly increased our awareness of the world and broadened the scope of our engagement with it. In the first episode of the ECE Department Guest Lecture Series, the Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering at SRM University-AP is organising a lecture on April 23, 2022, from 10.20 am to 12.00 noon. Dr Orazio Aiello, Assistant Professor at the University of Genoa, Italy, will engage the audience on the topic Ultra-Low-Power and Agile IC Design for novel Sensor Nodes for the Internet of Things on that day.

    The vision of a world where pervasive integrated electronic systems embedded in everyday life objects (e.g. household appliances, surveillance cameras, healthcare systems) are fully interconnected to collect, process, and exchange useful information requires energy-autonomous systems for distributed sensing and data acquisition. The low-cost requirement demands a small area, low design effort, digital-like shrinkage across CMOS generations, and design/technology portability. The possibility to exploit the digital (automated) design flow even for analog building blocks can dramatically reduce the design effort of any system-on-chip that faces the analog signal. Since data processing is digital, but most signals from the real world are analog, almost any electronic device that interfaces with the surrounding environment will benefit from the outcomes of this investigation. In this framework, the talk illustrates the concepts and the design flows which enable the implementation of analog functions by true digital circuits.

    Biography of the speaker:

    Orazio Aiello (Senior Member, IEEE) received the BSc and MSc degrees (cum laude) from the University of Catania, Italy, in 2005 and 2008, respectively, the M.Sc. degree (cum laude) from the Scuola Superiore di Catania, Italy, in 2009, and the PhD degree from the Politecnico di Torino, Italy, in 2013.,From 2008 to 2009, he was an Analog IC Designer and an EMC Consultant for STMicroelectronics, Castelletto, Italy. In 2012, he was a Visiting PhD. A student with Monash University, Melbourne, Australia. In 2013, he was a Research Fellow in a joint project with FIAT-Chrysler Automobiles, Turin. In 2014, he joined NXP-Semiconductors, Nijmegen, The Netherlands, as a Mixed Signal IC Designer and an EMC Expert. In 2015 and 2016, he was a Visiting Fellow with the University of Sydney and the University of New South Wales, Sydney, Australia. Since 2015, he has been working with the Green IC Group, Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE), National University of Singapore, where he has also been a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Individual and a Global Fellow leading the ULPIoT project. He is now an Assistant Professor at the University of Genova, Italy. His main research interests include energy-efficient analogue-mixed signal circuits and sensor interfaces. Dr Aiello is a member of the IEEE CASS Microlearning AdHoc Committee and is/was a Technical Program Committee Member of a number of conferences, such as NORCAS and APCCAS.

  • Ushering the next era- innovation, leadership & entrepreneurship April 7, 2022

    Once upon a time “Kodak” (Kodak Croma was the leader in camera manufacturing) said – “I am the leader!!! No digitalization can impact me. I am too big and powerful for anyone and anything to be replaced!!!!…. I am invincible!”. Today “Kodak Croma” has become a fossil. The new generation is not even aware of the name.

    Every innovation is the beginning of a new era. It also ushers a million changes that will have a radical impact on all aspects of life. Therefore, it is inevitable to keep abreast of all the latest happenings in the changing times as every new change opens a new world of opportunities. Unless the present generation is equipped to embrace the heralding revolution, they are locked out of infinite avenues that will lead them to a brand-new life.

    The Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovation is organising an induction programme ‘Ushering the Next Era- Innovation, Leadership & Entrepreneurship’ for the students of SRM University- AP on various initiatives and activities on leadership and entrepreneurship. The programme intends to give a brief overview of the contemporary innovations in the business landscape and facilitate them to transform in tune with the recent developments. They are also given an opportunity to meet some of the budding entrepreneurs in the field to derive inspiration and orient themselves accordingly. Grab every opportunity that comes your way and transform yourselves into the leaders of tomorrow.

    Date: April 8, 2022

    Time: 5.00 pm IST

    Venue: APJ Abdul Kalam Auditorium, X-Lab, SRMAP

    You can also join us virtually for this exciting session to explore the pioneering developments in the field.
