Workshop on Research Opportunities in Emerging Areas of Electrical Engineering at IIT Madras Research Park

I thought this could be of interest to students and researchers, esp from in and around Chennai, who have an interest in pursuing careers or research in renewable energy

Solarillion Foundation (, a non-profit research, education and outreach organization focused on renewable energy, sustainable engineering and humanitarian technology, organizes a one day workshop on the 6th March 2014 at the IIT Madras Research Park on “Research Opportunities in Emerging Areas of Electrical Engineering”. The workshop would be a platform for undergraduate students to make themselves aware of the recent trends prevailing in electrical engineering research and how they could involve themselves in it.

The students would be engaging with industry experts, academia along with research assistants from Solarillion in this day-long event and the discussions will include topics such as embedded systems, open source hardware systems, power electronics, Internet of Things, big data, solar energy systems, rural microgrids for India among others. As many of the domains in electrical engineering today require an applied inter-disciplinary know-how to solve problems, the workshop aims to bring together experts and students on a common platform to pursue research and projects. The workshop will give an insight into methodologies involved in authoring a research paper that would follow a real-time project implementation.

Students intending to pursue higher education, working in core engineering and pursuing research projects would benefit from this event. As this is an interactive workshop seats are limited and preregistration is necessary. For registrations, visit .
