National Seminar on “Application of Mathematics on Engineering”

The Gujarat Council on Science and Technology (GUJCOST) sponsored one day national seminar on “Application of Mathematics on Engineering” was held on 25th May, 2019 in the campus of Adani Institute of Infrastructure engineering (AIIE). The seminar was organized to bring experts and young researchers on one platform for the exchange of ideas in the field of engineering mathematics. The programme was inaugurated by the Director of the institute Dr. A V Thomas, the Principal Dr. V M Patel and Dr. Jagmohan Tyagi from IIT Gandhinagar.

In his welcome address, Dr. Thomas mentioned the pressing need of mathematics in engineering field. He pointed out that the latest engineering software tools had reduced the mathematical problem solving sessions to a great deal. He urged the mathematicians to deliberate on the modification of the current solution centric approach to formulation based techniques, taking care of the constraints of the field without losing the essence of the real life issues.
In his speech, Dr. V M Patel had articulated the most urgent issue in the engineering field being the lack of command in engineers in mathematical designing of real world problems and thereafter to search for their solutions. According to him, enhancing the quality of education can only increase the efficiency of the engineers.

Eminent academicians from various distinguished institutions like IIT Gandhinagar, M S University, Baroda and PDPU, Gandhinagar had attended the seminar and delivered their lectures to almost thirty participants from different colleges and universities of the state.
