Highlight of the Month


National Book Day

Remember the story of Anton Chekov where the lawyer took up a challenge of spending fifteen years in solitary prison. Guess, who was his companion during these years of complete isolation? You guessed it right. He survived entirely on books which kept him alive for fifteen long years. This is what books do. Books make us alive, aware and complete.

But books are perishable. The library of Mughal Emperor Humayun, who was very fond of books, caught fire once, and all books got damaged. Had we had a smarter way to store books, the damage might be controlled. After the Digital Era, the problems of storing books seem solved. The Central Library of Brainware University in collaboration with the Library of BGI-SDET, jointly organize an awareness programme on “The resources of National Digital Library of India” on occasion of World Book Day on the 23rd of April, 2019, at our Barasat campus. Inaugurated by the Honorable Vice- Chancellor of Brainware University, Dr. Subrata Kumar Dey, the event stressed on spreading awareness about the various uses, resources and advantages of the digital library platform. Ms Bandana Basu (Librarian, BWU) & Mr. Sujan Bandhu Chakroborty (Asst. Librarian, BGI-SDET) discussed in details about the National Digital Library of India and how it can assist as an all-encompassing reservoir of knowledge. The programme concluded by a presentation by Mr. Biplab Kr. Chandra(Asst. Librarian ,BWU) who informed the attending audience about the history and background of the Indian Copyright Act.


Students' Corner

Industrial Visit

Brainware University does not believe that education should be confined within the boundaries of class room. Rather, the students of the University are always encouraged to have hands-on knowledge which can guide them in the professional field where practical experiences are as important as their degrees. Keeping this in mind, Department of Electrical Engineering and Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering organized an Industrial Visit to Barasat Municipal Corporation for the Diploma EE & ECE 2nd semester students on 20th February 2019. Under the guidance of Dr. Dilip Debnath, Dean, The School of Engineering and Mr. Krishnendu Ghosh, a faculty member from the Department of EE, students had a comprehensive understanding regarding the Grid Connected Solar Power Plant of 30kWp on the roof top of Barasat Municipal Corporation office and 20kWp (floating system on a huge pond) at Sheth Pukur, Barasat. The objective of this visit is not only to familiarize with the whole PV system but also to get practical knowledge about calculation, selection and installation of large Grid Connected PV System on roof top and on the water body. It was also to make the students understand the connection of Inverter, Import-Export meter and bus-bar to get the benefit of excess power generation from Solar PV System. Many of them are enthusiastic to set up a small PV system for their own house. Some steps are going to be taken to encourage the students in renewable energy systems. Mr. Sushanta Biswas, Assistant Director, WBREDA, Kolkata, West Bengal accompanied the students for explaining the whole system.
