Research Scholar Lecture Series
The department of CSE, IT, and AIML arranged sessions of research scholar lecture series.
Ms. Shraddha Deshmukh conducted a session flourish tool - which is a data visualization and storytelling tool. Data visualization is a niche area related to any research activity. So this session is found to be useful for undergraduate as well as PhD scholars also.
Mr. Mayur Gaikawd conducted a session on UI for Machine Learning activities. In his session, he showed sample projects using StreamLit which is found to be an effective tool for UI related to ML. Audience for this session is from B.Tech and PhD scholars also.
Department of Computer Science Engineering and Information Technology hosted a fun-filled technical festival, which the student staff and faculty thoroughly enjoyed. It was a jam-packed event with both technical and fun activities.
An annual TechFest(The sixth edition of TECHELA 6.0), organized by the CS/IT department was held on the 23rd and 24th of April 2021. The inauguration ceremony was conducted on 23rd April 2021. For this inauguration function, DyDirector, Academics Dr. Warke Madam, HOD’s of various departments, faculties and students of all department were present.
This year, we have organised 7 pre-techfest events, and 13 TechFest events in online mode. Pre-TechFest events were organised from 16th April 2021 to 22nd April 2021. For this Pre-TechFest 2021, we had Technical and Gaming events. In Technical events, students from many colleges participated for events like Bug Detection, Coding-Decoding, Hand and Brain Coding. Also for Gaming events, student shown their interest for events like The Knights Open Chess Challenge, Scribble, Bollywood/Hollywood quiz, and Open Mic.
