KIIT School of Electronics Engineering Organizes Alumni Talk
An Alumni Talk, the fifth in the series, was organized by KIIT School of Electronics Engineering (SoEE) for the B.Tech., M.Tech. and Ph.D. students on 10th April 2021. The speaker, Ms. Saswati Das provided an overview on “Exploring the Unbound Potential of Space Science – Research and Other Opportunities”.
She talked about space science, its important and where and how to start research on this area. She informed about the different opportunities available in the research in Space Science and different skill sets required to get selected in different reputed institutes. She guided the students on how to approach the professors to do research on space science and the different organizations to pursue space science research. She also emphasized on the different documents that need to be prepared while a student is going to apply for different universities abroad.
Ms. Saswati Das is pursuing Ph.D at Virginia Tech. She is a research student at the Center for Space Science and Engineering Research. Most of her work involves understanding the chemistry and dynamics of the Mesosphere and Lower Thermosphere by using Remote Sensing Techniques. These techniques are implemented in the form of Atmospheric Balloons and Sounding Rockets. She hopes to continue working in the domain of Space Science in the future and strongly advocates the equal participation of women in the realm of Space Science.
The session was attended by the students and faculty members of the School of Electronics Engineering. The program was coordinated and concluded by Dr. Arindam Basak, Associate Dean, T&P. The talk was very informative for the students.
