The Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering organised a three day’s workshop on ‘C Programming puzzle’ for final year students at ATME College of Engineering, Mysuru, recently.
Dr L Basavaraj, Principal, ATMECE presided over the function and said that the students are provided training on soft skills, aptitude, pre-placement etc from first year to final year. With the opportunities diminishing in core sectors of Electrical Engineering, a diversification is seen in IT sector. He stressed students to be industry ready by exploring on courses like C, Oracle, and Java before graduation. He lauded the rich experience of resource person and advised students to make maximum utilization of the workshop.
Chief Guest and resource person of the workshop Mahesha Padyana, Managing Director, Cloud-E said that C is the foundation for any programming language. The VTU syllabus is not sufficient for the foundation and suggested at least 10% of such activities from institutes will help in laying strong foundation for the students in placement. He also advised students not to just stick on to text books and explore educational sites. He further said that students should cultivate the habit of doing projects independently than purchasing. He thanked the department for organising the workshop and providing an opportunity to Cloud-E.
Dr Parthasarathy L, head, department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering spoke about the essentiality of the workshop by quoting on the training provided to 50 selected students out of 350 students from the college from Amphisoft technologies. He further said that, to get into reputed IT companies, the companies look for programming skills, good knowledge of various compilers, libraries and syntax of the programming language. To enhance the coding skills of the students, the department has taken initiative in organising the workshop to make them industry ready and also advised the students to gain maximum inputs from the workshop
The session began with an introduction to C. In the pre-lunch session of Day 1, topics on data types, operators, precedence c expressions, type conversions were covered. In the post lunch session, I/O arrays, control flow iterative loops were discussed.
Day 2 and Day 3 covered topics on pointers, structures, unions, File handling macros, header files, code testing and debugging etc, along with placement interview questions and puzzles.
