National Seminar on Semiconductor Technology for Space and Defense Applications

A National Seminar on Semiconductor Technology for space and defense applications was organized by Electronics and Communication Engineering Department of Punjab Engineering College (Deemed to be University), Chandigarh in technical collaboration with IEEE Chandigarh Subsection and Indian Society of Systems for Science and Engineering (ISSE) Chandigarh Chapter on October 19, 2019 in the college premises.

The main objective of this seminar was to provide a forum for scientists, faculty and students to update their technical thoughts by interacting with technologist carrying out leading edge research and development in the area of Semiconductor devices.

The event organized under the leadership of Dr. Arun Kumar Singh, was graced by the presence of Scientists/Engineers from DRDO/ ISRO /CSIR labs and faculty from IISc, IITs and many institutes of national repute. The seminar was also witnessed by enthusiastic students passionate about the present day research occurring in the said fields.

While the students were enthralled by the presentation by faculty of SCL Mohali, like the talk on ‘Semiconductor device fabrication and characterization techniques’, by Manoj Wadhwa; ‘Innovation, & Novel Approaches to “Scaling”’ by Mr. Sathish Kumar Dhayalan and ‘CMOS, alternative device structures and new materials’ by Mr. Manish K Hooda, they were equally curious to dive to the depths of topics like Future of logic, SOI, memory devices and process integration, as well as 3D packaging.

The event concluded with a speech by Dr. Sanjay Kumar Batish, TEQIP-3 Coordinator, where he thanked everyone who took out time from their busy schedules and attended the workshop to share their respective field of research. He also gave best wishes the guest speakers. It was followed by a certificate distribution ceremony, conducted by Dr. Arun Kumar Singh, with Sc/Engr SF Manoj Wadhwa.

The seminar was hence successful in providing an insight to both theoretical and practical knowledge for the design, analysis, and operation of semiconductor devices in order to meet the needs of relevant industry, space, defense and research organizations.
