SPIE & OSA STUDENT CHAPTER
Mr. V.C. Badrinath, III year Mechanical student and Mr. S. Shasidhar Reddy, III year ECE student participated and presented poster in the International Conference “SPIE OPTICS + PHOTONICS 2013” held at SANDIEGO, USA from 25th to 29th, August, 2013. They have been awarded the Travel grant by SPIE, USA.
Mr. V.C. Badrinath, III year Mechanical student participated and demonstrated Optics based experiments in the International Conference “OSA FRONTIES IN OPTICS 2013” held at ORLANDO, USA from 5th to 10th October, 2013. He has been awarded the travel grant by Optical Society of America (OSA), USA.
Importance of DRDO
A DRDO research project on Ferroelastic behavior of some manganite based multiferroics by Ultrasonic velocity studies was sanctioned under the supervision of Dr. P. Venugopal Reddy, Director.
In fact, this is the first research project sanctioned with a budget of Rs. 50 .15 Lakhs, to a constituent college under JNTU Hyderabad. The project was sanctioned by Defence Research & Development Organization ( DRDO ), Govt. of India, for a period of three years starting from, Nov. 2012.
The research project is meant for the investigation of ferroelastic behavior of some multi ferroic materials. The major equipment sanctioned under the project is – Closed Cycle Refrigerator ( CCR ). Using this facility, the experimental measurements can be carried out over a temperature range, 4-300K. The project is carried out in collaboration with the Department of Physics, Osmania University.
Society of photographic instrumentation Engineers
Society of photographic instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) is an international student chapter formed at Vidya Jyothi Institute of Technology, Hyderabad, India in the month of September 2012. SPIE is a society, promotes for development and progress in the field of Optics and Photonics among students from various Engineering Branches.
SPIE provides funding to each Student Chapter so that Chapter Members can create and engage in more diverse career development opportunities. It believes the future belongs to optics and photonics, and the future of these technologies is in the hands of our students. SPIE provide necessary financial support (like travel grant, registration fee, food and stay expenses) to deserving students who are interested to attend the conference and present their research paper(s). A large number of VJIT students have taken membership of this society.
Three students (Two from II year B.Tech. and one from III year B.Tech.) of the institute belongs to SPIE student chapter have received the invitation and Officers Travel Grant of an amount $2500 to attend the SPIE Optics + Photonics 2013, 24 – 29 August, San Diego, CA, USA.
Three students will get training at Student Chapter Leadership Workshop during the conference where they will learn like how to use personal/organizational power, how to deploy tactics, and how to harness social influences so we get other people to accede more easily to our requests.
