2021 Outstanding Chapter of the Year

Wednesday, June 1st, 2022

 

The 2021 Nanotechnology Council Chapter of the Year Award goes to the IEEE Nanotechnology Student Branch Chapter at IIT Indore. See https://ieee.ntc.iiti.ac.in/

“For creating an interactive platform to incorporate design, and development of nanotechnology and it’s scientific, engineering, and industrial applications”

The IIT Indore NTC Student Chapter is actively involved in the technical domain by organizing technical events such as Distinguished Lecturer Program, Mini Colloquia and sponsoring/co-sponsoring various conferences, webinars and workshops, membership drives, opportunities to network with peers, the Resource Center, environmental awareness campaigns and promotional activities with the objective of sustainable developmental growth.

The members of the Chapter are striving to create an interactive platform for young professionals like academicians, scientists, technologists and engineers to discuss, explore and collaborate in the domains of semiconductor, nanoelectronics, photonics, optoelectronics, photovoltaic, biomedical sensors and memory devices.

 

The IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC) Chapter of the Year Award is intended to encourage a successful and effective overall performance of the Chapter in terms of its activities. Exemplary Chapters must have a high number of activities and creativity.  The Chapter must consistently be active in organizing activities throughout the year.

IEEE Student Engineering Team Challenge 2021

Thursday, December 9th, 2021

The IEEE Foothill and Orange County Joint Sections Nanotechnology Council Chapter organized the IEEE Student Engineering Challenge 2021 STEM event during the past year.

The IEEE SETC2021 was focused on students from socio-economic disadvantaged communities with the goal to stimulate interest in the STEM fields. This challenge was actively looking to include minority children of color. These students were invited to participate, along with a few of their peers, in this poster competition by displaying an original project proposal focused on a few targeted topics.

Students in High School and College considering College majors in science and engineering disciplines were encouraged to try their hand at meeting this team challenge by designing and displaying a solution for or an investigation into a problem area associated with one of the topical boundaries of this year’s challenge.

For some of the topical areas startup training and materials were made available. For projects that rise to the top of the challenge more equipment and support were offered and made available to foster completion of the proposal. IEEE Student Members were also available to train and assist as well.

Team projects that were inclusive and collaborative showcasing creativity and ingenuity were shared with an audience of academic and industrial technical experts who provided recognition and award prizes in several participant categories.

As of June 30, 2021 there were 27 Team submissions received.

As of August 30, 2021 there were 12 final submissions received with the total number of participants reaching 47.

Presentations were held online on August 31. Prizes that were awarded included one First Prize, one Second Prize, two Third prizes. Three entries were awarded Technical Excellence recognition and five were awarded Outstanding Presentation recognition. All of the participants will receive an embossed IEEE Award Certificate stating their accomplishments.

FIRST PLACE: Application of Labels Using Robotic Arm
SECOND PLACE: Titan Providence: Self-Navigating Drone
THIRD PLACE: Battery SPAR for UAV
THIRD PLACE: UAV Flight Endurance Testing

See https://ieeesetc.org/setc2021-winners for descriptions.

There were 26 Engineers and Academics and Industry Professionals who served on the Organizing Committee and as Judges and as support persons in a number of ways and the IEEE SETC2021 is extremely grateful for their service.

Planning for additional STEM activities which build on the experiences gained in IEEE SETC2021 will begin later this year. The principal organizers were Chapter Chair Dr. Zhen Yu, Chapter Vice Chair Dr. Yu Bai and Chapter Secretary Nick Massetti.

Request for proposals for the 2019 IEEE Summer School on Nanotechnology

(Download PDF version)

History: The IEEE Nanotechnology Council (https://ieeenano.org/about) sponsored its first Summer School Program on “Regenerative Nano-Medicine: From Advanced Delivery Systems to Electronic-Based Devices” at Tel-Aviv University, Israel, in June 2016. In the next years, Summer / Fall schools have focused on “N3: Nanomaterials, Nanotools, and Nanodevices” [Montreal, Canada], “Nanoelectronic technologies and devices: From basic principles to highly reliable applications” [Toulouse, France], “Nanotechnology: From Science to Systems and Beyond” [Bangalore, India], and “Nanotechnology for Energy” [Portland, USA]. These schools have been highly successful in educating and training a multinational audience of students, post-docs, and other early career researchers in their chosen topical area. Through this current announcement, the council seeks to continue this important initiative into its fourth year.

Call for proposals and its thematic areas: The IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC), in partnership with member societies of NTC, the Electron Devices and the Circuits and Systems societies (EDS and CAS), is requesting proposals for its Sixth Summer School. The school is expected to maintain an educational focus on nanotechnology, which may range from fundamentals in nanomaterials, nanofabrication and nano-characterization to diverse application areas such as nanosensors, nanoactuators, nanobiology and nanomedicine, nano-optics, nanorobotics, nanobiology, nanoelectronics, nanophotonics, DNA nanotechnology, nanomanufacturing, nanopackaging, nanofluidics, nanomagnetics, nano/molecular heat transfer & energy conversion, nanoscale communication and networks, nano/molecular sensors, actuators, and systems, and spintronics.
