IEEE WIE Affinity group of Amrita School of Engineering(SBA63931) Student Branch chapter, Bengaluru conducted the talk on IOT- in telecommunications, to foster the careers of students on 5-10-2016 from 3.30pm to 4.40pm in Valmiki Hall.

The talk was given by Soma pande , the general manager of Reliance Infotech. She is a graduate in computer engineering, from Maulana Azad National Institute of Technology and a Masters degree in software systems from BITS Pilani. She has 20 years of experience in wireless R&D, Design and Development .she has also been an expert reviewer for IEEE conferences in the Asia Pacific region. She is the inspiration to many women to grow their careers in the field of engineering.

The talk commenced with a welcome address by Dr.K.Deepa, IEEE WIE ASE Advisor. Soma pande gave a descriptive idea on IOT in telecom to students, She discussed applications of IOT in India. The talk also gave a glimpse to students on the wide applications of IoT in the smartphone. Her talk also included top IT protocols, E2E lot solution high-level architecture, standards for WAN, standards for field area network, standards for vertical applications, standards for M2M service capabilities. Students got highly excited when she talked about 5G, as this is the most awaiting new technology.

This is the great initiative taken by WIE to develop innovative ideas among the students. Connecting idea is where innovation comes from, and connecting with people makes those innovation come to life. This event got an overwhelming response from the students, 60 people attended the talk.
The session culminated by presenting a memento to the speaker by Dr.Naveen. This event was made successful with lot of support from Dr.K.Deepa.The vote of thanks is given by Gereshma, by thanking the speaker and WIE promising the students to bring more technical events like this.

Break Through

Thursday, October 25th, 2018

IEEE WIE (student affinity group- SBA63931), Amrita School of Engineering, Bangalore organized a technical fun event ‘Break Through’ as a part of Prabidhi on 2nd March, 2018 from 9 AM to 2.30PM in E-208, E-210, E-209 respectively at Amrita School of Engineering, Bangalore. Prabidhi is a tech day exclusively conducted for students every year by the Amrita School of Engineering.


Round 1. A team of three was allowed to participate. This was basically a fun event. One of participant was asked a question based on general knowledge. Numbers from 0 to 9 were placed vertically on the wall and a puzzle reference sheet was given to the participants. The participant that was asked the question showed the answer to the other two by pointing a pointer that was connected to the rotating arm. With the help of the puzzle reference sheet the other two participants said the answer. Teams which answered the maximum question in the time period of 4mins were qualified to 2nd round.
Round 2. The teams that are qualified in the first round entered into this round. In this round a maze was placed vertically. One of the team members was placed behind the maze in a way that maze was not visible. Two magnets were placed on either side of the maze such a way that they were attached magnetically. The other teammates were supposed to guide the person on the other side to bring the magnet out of the maze. Considering the time taken by them to complete the maze were permitted to the third round.

Round 3.Kill the Buzzer is the tech fun event where the participants have to off the buzzer within the given time. The teams that are qualified in second round are permitted to participate. One among the three was asked to pick a name card which consisted of some technical names. The teammates were allowed discuss on the name card for 30 seconds and the one who took the name card is asked to stand in a circle known as ‘Red Zone’ in which the other two teammates were not allowed. That other teammates are supposed to bring the clues related to that name card in 2mins. Person inside the red zone, arranged the clues with the wires collected from his other teammates to a circuit in a way that the buzzer is switched OFF.

The TECHNCIAL FUN EVENT earned a good response from all the participants who in turn requested us to conduct more programs in future. The importance of IEEE membership was highlighted in the same program. A total number of 68 teams participated in the event.
