It gives me immense pleasure to write this message for the new website of PICT IEEE Student Branch (PISB). It is a great contribution by PICT IEEE Student Branch, which provides an opportunity for all, including student members, to showcase their talent, views and further strengthen IEEE activities.
PISB has always been a platform for all the students to learn and polish their skills in various fields. The students, faculty and professionals alike have always aimed to enhance the awareness of technical developments and trends among all its members.
It is a great pleasure to serve PISB as a Counsellor. It is a really interesting, valuable and great learning experience to work at various levels in IEEE. As a counsellor at PICT IEEE Student Branch; as a Chair, Conference Committee at IEEE Pune Section; Vice Chair, IEEE India Council, IEEE Region 10 Students Activity Coordinator; and Member, MGA SAC, I am thankful to all the members of PICT IEEE Student Branch for their active support. In January 2018, I had an opportunity to attend IEEE Region 10 meeting at Yangon, Myanmar. I also got an opportunity to participate in IEEE Region 10 Annual General meeting which was held at Berjaya Langkawi Resort, Malaysia on 3th & 4th March. I also had an opportunity to organize R10 Sywl Congress at Bali, Inodnesia, 30th August to 2nd September, 2018.
I would also like to mention the strong support from Mr R.S. Kothavale, Managing Trustee, SCTR; Mr Swastik Sirsikar, Secretary, SCTR; Dr P.T. Kulkarni, Principal PICT and all the students who worked at this level. We try our level best to create an environment where students keep updating themselves with the emerging trends, technology and innovations. At PISB, many events are conducted throughout the year and widely appreciated by students, acclaimed academicians and industry professionals alike. The events include IEEE Day, workshops, Special Interest Group (SIG) activities, Credenz and Credenz Tech Dayz.
As branch counselor it makes me truly ecstatic to witness the substantial progress made by the members every year and PISB's role in the advancement of scientific knowledge and progressive ideas. I thank all the members for their contribution and interest. On behalf of IEEE R10 & IEEE Pune Section, I wish PISB all the success.
