Session III:

Name of the Speaker: Prof. Vijay K. Arora

Topic: Ohm to Arora: A New Paradigm for Nanoscale Devices and Circuits

Prof. Vijay Arora from Wilkes University, USA, discussed the paradigm shift from Ohm’s Law. The experimental nonlinear I-V characteristics, when voltage across the length of a resistor is higher than its critical value, defy ohmic and ballistic transmission through a nano-resistor. Arora’s Law embraces well the Ohm’s Law when applied voltage is smaller than the critical voltage. He discussed the ongoing research in this area.

The seminar was informative to all and introduced the latest technologies and trends in the Industry at a global level.

Industrial Visit To MTNL


Industrial visit was carried out at MTNL (Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd.) ITTM, Shadipur, New Delhi on 5th September, 2017 especially for ISF MAIT Members by ISF MAIT. The goal of the industrial visit was to achieve better understanding and practical exposure of Mobile Communications Systems. Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL) is a state-owned telecommunications service provider in the metro cities of Mumbai and NewDelhi in India.MTNL provides fixed line telephones, cellular connection of both GSM Dolphin (Postpaid) and Trump(prepaid) and CDMA—Garuda-FW And Garuda-Mobile and internet services through dialup and Broadband internet-TriBand.
Total of 35 students were part of this industrial visit. Everyone gathered at entrance gate of MTNL ITTM Building including faculty members.We were further assisted by MTNL Staff.
All the students were seated in presentation room,where Senior Manager Mr. Khanna had a introductory talk with all the students about working of MTNL.Then we were taught about the GSM(Global System for Mobile communication),types of antenna’s and there applications. After this all the students were taken to a lab for showcasing an In building solution for network connectivity .
Second lecture was taken in a round table conference room where we were taught about Optical fibrecable,broadband connectivity ,switching.After the lecture everyone was taken to switching unit and broadband unit where actual working of  these units were shown.
We took almost 3 hours to see various units at MTNL ITTM which was followed by questions/feedback of students. We appreciate staff member who guided students with each and every question with detailed answers.
We would like to extend our gratitude to company for permission and support they gave to make our visit a success with accomplishment of objective and our Faculty members Ms.Anubha,  P. K. Sinha for arranging this visit for student.

Industrial Visit to Honda Cars Pvt Ltd, Greater Noida


On 27 th October, our college has organised an industrial visit to Honda Cars Pvt Ltd, Greater Noida for students of ECE department. Strength of 44 along with the 5 faculty members visited the manufacturing plant of Honda. Students were first taken to workshop of the company along with the member of HR department, where they brief out the different stages used in making a car which included of welding, painting, assembly frame,engine assembly, vehicle quality,etc. They also explained the complete layout of their workshop. Students asked many questions from the manager based on different manufacturing processes, plant layout, etc and were answered by them very patiently. It was good to be there as we have got a chance to see how a car is being made and reaches us.

Training-Workshop on HFSS software


The recent availability of Electromagnetic Transient Programs with graphical front ends now makes it possible to put together models for circuits and systems in a manner similar to the connection of components in a laboratory, In the past, the non-graphical EM Programs required considerable expertise in their use and thus distracted the students into the details of simulation. The introduction of a simulation based laboratory into undergraduate Electromagnetic engineering education programs is very much required, based on the university program/curriculum. The philosophy behind the design of suitable high frequency device is required for day to day knowledge of next generation students.  

EM simulation software features a modern design, simulation and analysis environment, high capacity simulation technologies and integration with the industry’s leading RF and microwave circuit design environment.

Currently, around 40-50% practical oriented syllabus of our university's curriculum are reflective of the current trend to use simulation as a teaching tool for evaluating and training our students. Our aim is to perform a retrospective review of the current literature, studying simulation use in EM theory for the students.

With this consideration in mind, two day training-cum-workshop was organized in the Department of Electronics and communication Engineering, Maharaja Agrasen Institute of Technology, New Delhi on 26-27 July 2017. The workshop was conducted by Mr. Bishu, Mind Box, Noida. All the faculty members associated with the RF & Microwave field from electronics and communication engineering department attended the workshop.

During the workshop, various concepts of RF including computational techniques for antennas, electromagnetism, concept of HFSS, meshing techniques, feeding techniques, rectangular waveguides, design and analysis of patch, design and analysis of radar, etc were discussed. Trainer engaged the participants in working and designing different kinds of antennas and demonstrated on how to position the antenna in the boxes. The experts also exhaustively touched upon the subjects of EMC and EMI and elaborated on the process of testing the equipment that emits radiations and also measure the extent and intensity of radiation emissions.

On the second day the workshop came to a conclusion, with all the participants getting familiar to the HFSS tool and designing antennas and waveguides for a specific purpose. The workshop proved to be a wonderful platform for participants where they obtained ample exposure and familiarity to the designing.
