To commemorate 25th year of excellence, Department of Chemical Engineering, School of Engineering, Institute of Technology, Nirma University conducted a National level online Short Term Training Programme on “Fostering Instrumental Techniques for Effective Research”. The event was organised under Centre for Continuing Education (CCE), Nirma University, during October 27 -31, 2020.
The aim of the online event was to provide an interdisciplinary forum for engineers, researchers and student technocrats to discuss and promote research & technology transfer of characterisation techniques in Science & Technology. E-certificates were provided to all the participants after conducting the online examination. The patrons of the webinar were Dr Rajesh N Patel, Director (I/c), Institute of Technology and Dr Sanjay Patel, HoD, Chemical Engineering Department. The webinar had over 100 registrations from prestigious institutes, Central universities, and research organisations from across the country.
The panel of speakers included Dr Ramesh Gardas, Professor, IIT Madras; Dr Narayanan D Kurur, Professor, IIT Delhi; Dr Sudhanshu Sharma, Assistant Professor, IIT, Gandhinagar; Dr A Ramanan, Professor, IIT Delhi; Mr A Satyaprasad, Scientific Officer-E, Institute for Plasma Research, Gandhinagar and Dr Debashis Ray, Professor and Head, Department of Chemistry, IIT Kharagpur.
Sessions on Acoustic, Volumetric, Transport and Refractive Properties, Ultraviolet Spectroscopy, NMR Spectroscopy, Infra-Red Spectroscopy, Electrochemical Techniques, X-Ray Diffraction Analysis, SEM and TEM Analysis for Surface Morphology, Thermal Analysis Techniques and Importance of Instrumental Techniques in Research were conducted successfully.
The event was successfully coordinated by Dr Neha Patni and Dr Amita Chaudhary.
