Calls for quality research to get more patents

Indian students will be hugely benefited by way of knowledge and better job prospects by going in for integrated programmes offered by Indian universities in collaboration with foreign universities, according to Dr. K. Soundararajan, Officer on Special Duty, Jawaharlal Nehru University-Anantpur (JNTU-A). Delivering the keynote address at the second International conference on communications and signal processing organised by the QIS College of Engineering and Technology here on Monday, he said such tie-ups would facilitate better knowledge sharing and more awareness among Indian students on latest developments in technology. “There has been a good demand for M.S. in Information Technology and other integrated programmes designed to provide more practical training and with industry orientation,” he observed. He stressed on quality research leading to award of more patents. He exhorted the research scholars to be thorough with the fundamentals in their respective fields. He disapproved part-time research as superficial research leading to inferior quality papers. QISCET Principal K. Veeraswamy suggested that research scholars make a survey of literature available before selecting the topic for research. QISCET Secretary and Correspondent N. Nageswara Rao said more such conferences would be organised as they threw light on recent and future trends in the new terrains of technology.

ECE HOD Ch. Balaswamy said 35 research papers were shortlisted from 135 papers for presentation in the areas of communications, Signal and Image Processing and Embedded systems and VLSI.
