Engineers should follow an interdisciplinary approach in problem-solving, says NBA Chairman during International Conference by CGC Landran
CHANDIGARH: Chandigarh Engineering College, CGC Landran has organized a joint 2-day International e-Conference on Contemporary Advances in Mechanical Engineering and Innovations in Communication Computing and Sciences by the Department of Mechanical Engineering (ME) and Department of Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) respectively. More than 500 participants including researchers, students, research scholars, academic scientists, and faculties from around 12 countries attended Day 1 of this virtual conference.
Prof. K.K. Aggarwal, Chairman, NBA, graced the conference with his benign presence as the Chief Guest. Expressing his gratitude, he said, “Today, engineers should be taught to adopt interdisciplinary approaches in problem-solving. For instance, a Mechanical Engineering pursuant can take up projects with the Electronics and Communication Engineering students and come up with distinct solutions to a given problem. It’s time we think beyond the boundaries and let innovation be the key. Such conferences truly help students to broaden their horizon and I’m glad to see that Chandigarh Group of Colleges, Landran has time and again organized such international conferences for the young minds and has once again been successful in conducting one (virtually) even during the time of the Coronavirus pandemic.”
