Dr. D L Prabhakara

Department of civil & Engineering and Prof. Janardhana D. R., Department of Information Science & Engineering attended a Symposium-Cum-Workshop on `IT Innovations for Smart Cities’ in IIIT-Allahabad. Automation and Embedded Software Engineering, IoT (Internet of Things), Cloud Computing, Service Oriented Architectures, Wireless Sensor Networks, Predictive mechanisms and Recommender Systems, Big Data Analytics, Inclusive Technologies were the topics covered during this mega event. This Symposium-Cum-Workshop highlighted that "A Smart City uses Information Technology to enhance performance and wellbeing, to reduce costs and resource consumption and to engage more effectively and actively with its citizens. There is world-wide interest in Smart Cities and the Govt. of India has announced the formation of around 100 smart cities to be developed in the future. The European Union (EU) has devoted constant efforts to devise a strategy for achieving 'smart' urban growth for its metropolitan city-regions as the intricacies especially in view of I.T. innovations are higher.

Club Activities Of Civil Engineering

SPACE - 2015

The Valedictory function of SPACE (Sahyadri Pupil Association of Civil Engineering); the student association of the Department of Civil and a farewell for the outgoing students of the civil engineering department was held in the Campus. Prof. Umesh S. S., Head of the Department and the Guest of Honour of the function, addressed the outgoing students about life after graduation and wished them well for the future. Prof. Purushotham C.T., Department of Civil Engineering, gave an analogy about civil engineering and on how an engineer analyzes and designs the structures. He also spoke about work ethics to the students. Ms. Rashmishree K. N., Student Co-ordinator gave a report of the activities of SPACE for the year 2014-15. The achievers in academic, sports and cultural were felicitated with achievement awards and a group of eleven students were specially awarded for their excellent involvement in the various departmental events.
