Report on Special Lecture on Research methodology & Particle Swarm Optimization

The department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering organized special lecture on the topics Research Methodology and Particle Swarm Optimization on 8th December 2015. The session on Research Methodology was handled by Prof, Saleena Mary George, AP/EEE. The relevance of research, literature review and identification of problem, writing of research paper and sponsoring agencies were the major topics covered. Being a compulsory paper for the coursework of research the research methodology has its significance. About 90 percent of research work involves in identification of the research problem. Literature review plays an important role in identification of research problem. In writing a research paper the researcher should include their own interpretations rather than coping the contents of other authors to avoid plagiarism. Finally different government and nongovernment sponsoring agencies for the research and development projects were also discussed.


Two Days Workshop and Hands on Training on Soft Computing Techniques Using MATLAB 16th & 17th December 2015

Soft computing is the use of inexact solutions to computationally hard tasks such as the solution of NP-complete problems, for which there is no known algorithm that can compute an exact solution in polynomial time. The integration of soft computing techniques with innovative ideas leads to new developments in the application of all engineering sciences. It finds a wide scope in the field of research and development. The soft computing techniques include various methodologies like fuzzy logic, neural networks, optimization tools as genetic algorithms, particle swarm optimization etc. This workshop aims in providing a basic knowledge of these computing techniques and provides hands on training on soft computing methods using in MATLAB toolboxes. This is organized by Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering Ahalia School of Engineering and Technology.
