Bring heterogeneity in portfolio, millennials told

 Companies work against constraints to produce the expected output with specified input, limiting the processing time and space, hence new technologies should be developed to overcome such constraints, said B P Praveen, principal engineer, Samsung, Bengaluru, here, recently.

Inaugurating a two-day state-level seminar on ‘Technology for Millennials,’ organised by the National Institute of Engineering (NIE), under the aegis of Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme (TEQIP-II), he said, the objective of the seminar was to educate and tune the students to choose their career and higher studies to meet the current technologies.

Balaji Holur, senior vice-president, Samsung, Bengaluru, emphasised on the meaning of ‘Technology for Millennials’. “Most of the software contribution is from youngsters — the millennials — so the students should cultivate ‘3Cs’ for success, ie, communication, curiosity and characteristics. The millennials should bring heterogeneity in their portfolio and think out of box so as to create impact on the world,” he said.

The resource persons were Anurag Jain, senior principal engineer; Venkappa Mala, senior technical manager; Madhupa Chowdhury, chief engineer; Raghavan Velappan, technical manager; Rajib Basu, general manager; and Ajay Vijayvargiya.

The technical sessions were on heterogeneous computing, power and thermal management in embedded devices, Linux for embedded systems, camera subsystem and GPU compute and OpenCL.

In a quiz competition conducted during the seminar, S Shashank, Mahesh G Bhat, and P Akshay Kumar of Electronics and Communication Engineering won the first prize. Shreyas, Shishir Simha and C Manoj, Information Science and Engineering, won the second prize while M S Rakesh, A G Harish, and Praveen Kumar of Electronics and Communication Engineering won the third prize.

G L Shekar, principal, presided over the function, while S K Lakshminarayana, honorary secretary, and T K Chittaranjan, honorary treasurer of NIE Managing Committee were present.
