Few years ago nobody would have believed that all the house hold appliances can be monitored using a hand held mobile phone with an application. It was beyond imagination that an entire plant could be run by machines with minimal or without any human intervention. But today, all that has come true. Science and Technology have brought about remarkable changes that may have been unthinkable just a few years back. Our lives have become simpler but faster too. With cutting-edge advancements taking place in the world of science and technology, it is only natural that the careers in this domain keep evolving too.
Keeping this in view Shri Ramdeobaba College of Engineering and Management has Introduced 5 New program’s in the field of emerging areas. Shri Ramdeobaba College of Engineering and Management started in the year 1984 with a vision to provide world class technical education. The Institute was started by Shri Ramdeobaba Sarvajanik Samiti (SRSS) under the able leadership of Visionary Shri Banwarilalji Purohit. The institute started with 4 branches but kept on adding more streams based on the changing requirements of the industry. The Institute offers M.Tech Programs in different streams and has over the years built a reputation of being a quality education provider and has become extremely popular among the students and employers. During this journey the Institute realised and recognised the importance of Computer Applications and Managerial skills and started with MCA, MBA and MBA (Integrated) program. Today, the Institute offers 12 UG and 10 PG programs.
Development of the nation is a priority for our visionaries and it is their endeavour to create trained well-read and practically updated manpower. Create citizens equipped to manage, create, re-create and adapt so that the nation progresses towards an era hitherto unheard of. The visionaries of RCOEM are constantly in touch with the industry and understand the changes required to move forward. It is this clarity that has always helped RCOEM in keeping up with the times. Today, the need of the hour is investing in future and hence, RCOEM has launched 5 new programs keeping the future in view.
Industry 4.0 demands smart systems integrated with intelligence to have a better human-machine interface. To cope up with the upcoming emerging industrial demands, Shri Ramdeobaba College of Engineering and Management has introduced 5 New Programs in the field of emerging areas.
1. B.E. in Computer Science and Engineering (Data Science).
2. B.E. in Computer Science and Engineering (Cyber Security).
3. B.E. in Computer Science and Engineering (Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning)
4. B. E. in Biomedical Engineering
5. M. Tech in Robotics and Automation.
Back in early 2000, Clive Humby stated, “Data is the new oil.” In 2017, The Economist published their report - “The world’s most valuable resource is no longer oil, but data”. Certainly, data is at the success of every business. There has been a tremendous growth in technologies, methods and techniques to deal with efficient data storage and retrieval. The past decade has also witnessed the significant increase in the processing infrastructure and advent of deep learning techniques and software-hardware handshaking in realizing the otherwise impossible tasks.
It is reported that in 2020, daily about 2.5 quintillion (1 followed by 18 zeros) bytes of data is generated. It is attributed majorly to internet e-commerce, emails, mobile data and data from IoT devices. With data taking a centre-stage in terms of the velocity (i.e., the rate of creation), the volume and the variety has led to assuming a greater “value” to it. This “value” dimension is decisive in making or breaking the business and provides for strategic planning & growth. The “value” is generated through extracting actionable insights from the data using scientific method processes, and algorithms.
Data Science is closely related to data mining, machine learning and big data. It involves managing and processing an enormously large volume of enterprise data, both structured and unstructured, in a distributed environment. The pillars of data science are - business, statistics, communication, and programming. The data science deliverables range from prediction and classification to recommendation, optimization and forecasting. Data science is all about making sense of data and presenting it for effective decision making. With Google, Facebook, Microsoft, and Amazon owning 1,200 petabytes of people’s information and with over 4.5 billion internet users in the world, the domain of data science and analytics is going to drive the businesses in coming few decades.
Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
The entire business community commonly uses artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) terms in today’s era. For the overall development of the nation and to compete with the technology around the world, AI and ML play a significant role. These fields give benefits to the businesses like increasing revenue and profits, cutting costs, improving operational efficiency, evaluate their business models, and enhance their decision-making process and so on. Therefore, every type of industry recruits AI and ML experts for growing their business. Echo and Alexa enabled devices, Smart phones, Smart Cars and drones, Trading, Navigation and travel etc. are the examples of AI and ML applications. Department of Computer Science & Engineering have powerful devices like Nvidia DGX Station, GPUs for working on big data. These devices helps student for solving real world AI and ML problems. The future of AI and ML is everything that human thinks. This course will take the students to the new heights for achieving the promising career.
Advancement in technology has made our day to day life gravitating toward the world of the internet, mobile computing and electronic media. This phenomenon has exposed us to malicious attacks, invasions of privacy, fraud and other such cyber-attacks vulnerability. Cyber security is the state or process of protecting and recovering computer systems, networks, devices, and programs from any type of cyber-attack. Considering the immense growth in this domain, the top global companies like Amazon, Google, Cisco, Visa, and KPMG are making good investments on cyber security professionals with the skills to outsmart phishers, hackers, and cybercriminals. They identify the potential risk within a system and design solutions for its improvement which is hard to penetrate and secure the users' data. It is one of the most demanding professions and offers immense scope for growth.
Computer simulation for surgery, medical imaging, artificial organs all these are outcomes of the Biomedical Engineering. Biomedical engineering is one of the youngest engineering disciplines. It applies the principles and tools of engineering to solve problems in the field of medicine, healthcare and related areas. This field offers tremendous opportunity for growth as more and people are becoming health conscious and are willing to shell out money for gadgets like fitness tracking bands. This field offers a promising future and holds a plethora of opportunities for developing new products that could improve the healthcare services and assist the Doctors. A degree in above programs will prepare the students for a fruitful future and promising career.
Robotics and Automation
Whenever a mother tells her kids to clean the mess in the room, the first thing that the kids wish is a robot that would come and clean the room. May be one such kid grew up to be an engineer and created a robot that could express emotions, walk and talk like humans. If you are also thinking of outsourcing some similar task then Robotics and Automation Engineer might be the person to help you. Robotics engineers need the knowledge of mechanical engineering, electronics engineering, computer programming, artificial intelligence, machine learning, neural networks, and related areas.
