Mechanical ( D- division)participated in the Swachata Abhiyaan 2014-15 organised by our own trust on Tuesday 06th January 2015,  ably supported by Prof. Kamble Prasad, Prof. Pardeshi Pravin M and Prof. Pawale Krishna T.

The programme was initiated by taking the oath of maintaining cleanliness in the presence of our founder director, Shri. Sambhajirao Katkar saheb. We then cleaned the streets of Narhe Gaon locality here as part of the ‘Swachh Bharat Abhiyan’ after taking oath from the region between our college right upto PARI industry.

Hands on session on Hadoop

A Hands on session was conducted for third year IT students on the dates 19th, 20th, 26th and 27th of December 2014. This session was conducted by a Corporate Trainer Mr. Niraj Bhatt. Following are the contents covered in the session:

Topics Covered on 19th and 26th of December 2014:

  1. Introduction to Hadoop: Hadoop is a free, Java-based programming framework that supports the processing of large data sets in a distributed computing environment.
  2. MapReduce: A programming model and associated implementation for processing and generating large data. Hadoop MapReduce (Hadoop Map/Reduce) is a software framework for distributed processing of large data sets on compute clusters of commodity hardware. It is a sub-project of the Apache Hadoop project. The framework takes care of scheduling tasks, monitoring them and re-executing any failed tasks.

Topics Covered on 20th and 27th of December 2014:

  1. HDFS: Introduction to scalable and portable Hadoop Distributed File System. HDFS uses a master/slave architecture in which one device (the master) controls one or more other devices (the slaves). The HDFS cluster consists of a single NameNode and a master server manages the file system namespace and regulates access to files.
  2. HIVE: A data WareHouse build on Hadoop for data summarization and analysis. Hadoop was built to organize and store massive amounts of data of all shapes, sizes and formats. Because of Hadoop’s “schema on read” architecture, a Hadoop cluster is a perfect reservoir of heterogeneous data—structured and unstructured—from a multitude of sources. Data analysts use Hive to explore, structure and analyze that data, then turn it into business insight.
  3. PIG: A high level platform for creating map reduce programs used with hadoop. Pig is a high level scripting language that is used with Apache Hadoop. Pig enables data workers to write complex data transformations without knowing Java. Pig’s simple SQL-like scripting language is called Pig Latin, and appeals to developers already familiar with scripting languages and SQL.

Thus, the session was useful to the students which provided with the basic understanding of what exactly the Hadoop platform is. Students become familiar with handling the databases and unstructured data over distributed file system platforms. This will certainly help them in the industry while handling large amount of data for data analysis.

Workshop on “Short Term Training Program (STTP) “

Department of Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering of ZCOER had organized ISTE approved one week Short Term Training Program (STTP) on Signal and Image Processing: Theory, Simulation and Applications from 15th April, 2013 to 20th April, 2013. The objective of this program was to introduce the participants to the insight of Signal and Image processing along with its applications. Image processing is expanding rapidly with ever-new developments and applications.  The development of imaging instrumentation has inspired the evolution of new computerized image reconstruction, processing and analysis for interpretation and better understanding of images. This workshop has provided a forum for researchers and project designers to share their knowledge in the field of Image and Signal processing. This intensive workshop was conducted by domain experts from the renowned institutes. Total 50 participants from all over the Maharashtra have attended this training program.

Following topics have been discussed in this training program:

  • Fundamentals of Image Processing & Image Compression
  • Fundamentals of Signal Processing
  • Orthogonal Transforms
  • Speech Recognition
  • Wavelet Transforms
  • Content Based Image Retrieval (CBIR)
  • Iris Recognition & Complex Wavelet Design
  • Face Recognition
  • Biomedical Signal and Image process

Program Co-ordinator: – Prof. N. P. Bhosale
