05th January to 09th June 2019 (Classes on Weekends/National Holidays)
With the advent of the internet-driven era, organizations are transforming their operations to harness the power of the web-driven ecosystem and grow sustainably resulting in the digitization of both processes and products. In this context, there is a need to leverage upon innovative business models to reach out to new customers and segments. In view of this, digital marketing and hence the emergence of search engines and social media are playing a significant role.
18th February to 1st March, 2019
The Indian summer monsoon (ISM) and its likely change under global warming has been one of the most important topics of academic and research interest for the climate science community in India. Although there is significant research going on in this field, a holis5c view of the Asian-Australian monsoon system is essential.
19th February to 23rd February, 2019
Fracture and micromechanics are powerful tools used to understand and predict the behaviour of modern materials and structures. Fracture Mechanics describes the behaviour of cracked structures including failure on the macroscale and on the microscale. Micromechanics, on the other hand, investigates the impact of the inhomogeneous structure of the material, including its defects, on the macroscopic behaviour.
1st March to 2nd March 2019
There is an urgency today to re-open the question of values, nihilism, and our sense of desirable futures under the heading of “evil”. Today, two senses of the term “evil” overlap and resound: “it is bad” and “everything is going wrong” as the planet, the climate, politics, egalitarian structures, and knowledge are in crisis. This course will examine and redefine the term ‘evil’ to address contemporary challenges from an inter-disciplinary perspective involving Philosophy, history, sociology, psychoanalysis, and technology studies.
2nd March to 6th March 2019
Understanding how the human brain works is one of the fundamental challenges in science today. Advancing our knowledge in this regard will help us to solve various key problems in engineering and medicine. This workshop introduces the fundamental challenges and opportunities in Neuroscience from a computational and signal processing perspective. Participants will learn about Neuroscience and Artificial Intelligence related problems in multiple domains. The applications of cutting-edge machine-learning techniques and signal and image processing methodologies to the analysis of neural data will also be described.
6th March to 10th March 2019
The hands on workshop on Density Functional Theory (DFT) will cover the basic principles and advance simulations techniques to determine various physicochemical properties in materials science. The hands on workshop on Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations will introduce basics of length and time scales challenges, all-atom, ab initio and coarse-grained simulations; various force-fields, etc.
9th March to 28th April 2019 (Classes on Weekends)
12th March to 16th March 2019
This course will focus on the study of the structure, properties, and processing of extremely small (10-9 m) synthetic and biological materials. At this scale, macroscopic mechanical properties are intimately related to the molecular and atomic structure. The course begins with a series of introductory lectures in nanomechanics that outline the characterization of physical properties at the atomic scale. This includes the forces acting at the atomic scale, friction, adhesion, elasticity, fracture, thermal and electrical conductivity, and molecular interactions
23rd March 2019
The objective of this workshop is to help the participants understand and realize the salient features of design management in terms of coordination, changes, iterations, information exchange, and so on. Also, the workshop will expose the audience to the available different design techniques.
