Logical Development

The department of computer engineering had organized a three days faculty

development program on ―Logic Development & Problem Solving‖ on 10th, 11th &

12th Dec 2015. Every programmer should think logically in order to develop logic for a

program but the problem arises here is how to think logically? So in order to think

logically we should learn how logic will work and how to develop logic for a program

On first day, the first session of the FDP was conducted by Prof. Deshmukh. He explained thecollaborative computing problem in IOT and how it is to be solved by liner algebra.

The second session of the FDP was conducted by Dr. Parikshit Mahalle. He defined the definition of the problem he said that every problem has a logical solution only we need to think in that perspective. The third session of the FDP was conducted by Prof. Sunil Dhore. Prof. Dhore has explained various logic models, problem solving steps and components which are essential to development of logic and problem solving approach. The second day session was conducted by Mr. Swapnil Pande. He said Logic models help us plan, implement, evaluate, and communicate more effectively. Many funders and organizations require logic models.

The third day session was conducted by Prof. S. M. Sangve. He delivered the session on teacher‘s role in engineering.

 Outcome of FDP:

This FDP brings a robust approach to bear on real challenges that can be used in all

sectors of teaching
