Participants’ Feedback

All the students’ gave positive feedback. In terms of applicability of the topics that were delivered, the instructor’s communication with the students, the speed and pace at which the topics were presented were all positively acknowledged by the students. The students also requested a follow-up workshop with more industrial applications.

Future Action Plan

1. The department intends to hold a five-day workshop on deep learning with industrial partners like NVIDIA and INTEL.
2. The department also intends to include hands-on practice on the follow-up workshops.
3. The follow-up workshops should also be open to faculties and research scholars of institutes within or outside our state.

Outcome

In all perspectives, the workshop was a success. The students were highly motivated and encouraged by the lectures that were delivered by the resource persons. The intermingling flavours of the concepts and applications that were presented on the different sessions made a clear picture for the students that the scope of computational sciences has a lot to offer for solving intricate problems related to many scientific as well as social fields. The resource persons presented not only academic knowledge but also shared their valuable experiences relating to the research they carried out. The objectives of the workshop were achieved and for the students, their hopes and vision were kindled.

One Day Workshop on MSME Schemes, Programs for Industry setup and funding

A one day workshop on “MSME Schemes, Programmes for Industry setup and funding” was organized by the Department of Computer Science and Engineering on 30th of January at MTU academic building, Polytechnic Campus. The workshop is sponsored by TEQIP-III. 

Aim and Objective

MSME stands for Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises. MSME tailors more labour-intensive enterprises at low costs. The first session of the workshop will provide the opportunities for learning about the various schemes and programmes under the Government of India by offering individuals formal training, business plan development, guidance and follow-up during their own business idea implementation using the aids of MSME. The second session focuses on how to develop an idea to a viable project or a start-up, securing, procuring and funding options. The aim is to help enable the students to understand the importance of self-sustenance and employability.

Workshop Content

Session-I

  • Role of MSME in Entrepreneurship development
  • MSME Schemes and Programmes
  • The necessity for quality and standardization
  • Funding and support

Session-II

  • Start-up initiation, procurement and planning
  • Entrepreneurial need and generation of start-ups from an idea
  • Discussion on how computer science engineering graduates can develop their own idea to a successful start-up company.

Lamdan Hiking Trip in collaboration with MMTA from 30-03-2018 to 31-03-2018

The Manipur Technical University in collaboration with Manipur Mountaineering and Treking association is organizing a hiking trip for the 1st year students and 2nd year deptt of CSE and ME from 30-March-2018 to 31-March-2018.

The Manipur Mountaineering and Trekking Association (MMTA), are engaged in promotion of these facilities.

There are numerous land, water and air based adventure sports sites across the State, such as, the Loktak lake: for water sports; the Barak river: for rafting; the Mount Iso along with Dzuko Valley famous for its endemic Dzuko Lily (Lilium chitrangadae) and the Shirui Hill famous for the rare Shirui Lily (Lilium mackliniae): for mountain climbing and trekking; the Tharon and Khangkhui Caves: for caving adventures; and the Koirengei Old Airfield and Nongmaiching foot-hills at Wakha: for hang gliding, paragliding and parasailing are some of the celebrated adventure sports and eco-tourism sites.

The Adventure and Leadership Park run by the Manipur Mountaineering Institute (MMI) of the MMTA, located at Lamdan, near the Loktak Hydro-Electric Project, about 35km. from Imphal, over an area of around 250 hectares with natural rock is the first of its kind in India.
