A guest lecture was organized by the department of ECE, on 12th August 2017 by Dr. Surekha Borra. She introduced and elaborated about the Remote Sensing Applications based on Image Processing for III year B.Tech ECE students.
Dr. Surekha Borra, a full professor of ECE department, KSIT, Bangalore, has 11 years of teaching experience. She has one Indian patent, 143 citations in google scholar, 25 published research papers and 4 book chapters to her name. She has achieved “Women Achievers” Award from the Institution of Engineers, Karnataka.
The Resource person Dr. Surekha Borra, interacted with the students and faculty and threw much light on the applications of Remote Sensing in various fields. She also explained in detail about various methods in which image processing is applicable to the selected field of interest. The introductory aspects focused on how one should analyze a satellite image for proper identification of the content in it. The lecture went on progressively, students interacted at will and the queries were most effectively answered by the visitor.
Dr. G. Subba Rao, the principal of GIST addressed at the start gave a message that the institution is frequently conducting various guest lectures, workshops, webinars, etc. for the benefit of both students as well as faculty and enlighten them with updated trends in various domains related to the fields of Electronics and Communication Engineering. Mr.SK.Mahaboob Basha, H.O.D, R&D, Mr. P. Raghava Reddy, H.O.D, ECE, Mr. K.Prabhakar Reddy, co-ordinator of the guest lecture, faculty and students participated and made it a highly useful and productive one.
A guest lecture was arranged by the ECE department of GIST on “Integration of Antenna with Multiple Systems of Communication” on 22.10.2016, Saturday.
Participating in the programme as the chief guest, Chairman of IEEE, Prof. Dr. N. Sreenivas Rao, said that Satellite Communications, Mobile Communications, Wireless Communications would function more efficiently with the integration of Antennas. The smart antennas, linked up with intelligence would play a crucial role in the transmission and dissemination of vital data in desired directions and facilitate the consolidation and strengthen the internal security of the country. He emphasised the imperative of carrying out experimental and further research for the up gradation of the operational efficiency of the antennas.
Dr. G. Subba Rao, Principal said that the students of ECE must focus on the fundamental concepts involved in antenna designing and application to broader the scope of their proficiency in the subject.
Mr. N. Sudhakar Reddy, Secretary and Correspondent said that such academic events as guest lectures and workshops would bring the modern technology closer to the students and wider the technical expertise of the faculty.
Mr. P. Raghava Reddy, HOD of ECE said that the department was making all efforts to help the students and faculty to gain a greater access to the advanced technology in the Electronics and Communication Engineering.
Mrs. G. Kameswari, HOD R&D, Mr. D. V. V. S. Phani Kumar Director, Faculty, Students were present at the event.
Guest lecture on “RADAR Signal Processing” by Prof.Dr. S.Varadharajan ,Professor,Department of ECE, Sri Venkateswara University, Thirupati for III B.Tech students on 22nd August, 2014.
Prof.Dr. S.Varadharajan explored the concepts of radar signal processing and presented the need for research in the area which can help the development of agriculture field.
