Presiding over the ninth National Power Electronics Conference (NPEC – 2019) that was organised recently by the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, NIT, Tiruchy, Dr Ing.- Peter Magyar said that society contributes to solutions and advances in applications of electrical and electronics engineering in the industry. IAS Membership from IEEE Region 10, which includes India, accounts for more than 50 percent of the society membership. Globally, India has the largest number of IAS student chapters as well, which is more than all the student chapters out together in the Western IEEE regions. He also highlighted the ‘Club of 6’ scheme, which encourages students to organise technical paper conferences of IEEE standards. A student-led conference will instil a sense of leadership in the students and they will develop the ability to interact with key experts in the world, he added.
The conference was initiated by experts in power electronics all over the country to provide a platform for interaction among peers in the field for exchange of ideas.
NIT-T Director Mini Shaji Thomas, Dr N Kumaresan, IEEE Student Branch Counsellor, Dr S Moorthi, IAS student chapter advisor and S Devaraj, chairman, IAS Student Chapter, NIT-T and others were present.
