Global Engineering Week concludes on a high note

The international Global Engineering Week (GEW), which is a strategic and splendid initiative of engaging aspiring students to acquaint themselves with advanced technologies empowering themselves to become better engineers, concluded on a high note this Saturday.

It is a concept unique to Chitkara University and serves as a catalyst for infusing cross-cultural competence, knowledge transfer as well as networking among faculty and students. The week was launched by Dr Ashok K. Chitkara and Dr Madhu Chitkara, the founder of Chitkara University.

The week provided an experience of stimulating interactive sessions steered by visiting professors from its partner universities around the world.

About nine eminent and globally renowned professors visited the campus and taught students through different modules of about 20 hours each. Prof Andrew Quinn, Glasgow Caledonian University covered a module related to Power Electronics, two professors from Helsinki Metropolia university of Applied Sciences, Finland namely Prof. Heikki Tapani Valmu, Prof Antii Pinonen focused on Microwave Engineering and Amplifier Design and Digital Signal Processing problem solving, respectively.

Russian professors, Dr Igor Popov and Dr Andrey Filchenkov from ITMO University, Kronverkskiy, taught Quantum and DNA Computing and Introduction to Machine Learning, respectively, and other two professors from Kazan Federal University, Dr Sergey Mosin taught Design for Testability Automation of Analog and Mixed Signal Integrated Circuits and Dr. Farid Ablayev focused on Quantum Cryptography. Dr Kali Prasad Nepal from Deakin University, Australia, enlightened civil engineering students on Road Design through Comprehensive Road Safety Perspectives. Dr Frank Peter Helmus from Osnabruck University of Applied Sciences, Germany taught Fundamentals of Process Engineering.

Apart from mere teaching, our visiting professors enriched their Chitkara experience through a visit to the Golden Temple, exploring ‘Hall of fame’ Chitkara museum, seeing Rock Garden, visiting Shimla and learning the nuances of Indian culture.
