Prasad Calyam, Assistant Professor in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department, University of Missouri, visited Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham. At Amrita, he gave presentations on technology and innovation with the goal of showcasing Mizzou Engineering’s strengths in these areas to a strong partner institution. He visited the Cochin campus, which focuses on medical education and research, and the Amritapuri campus, which focuses on education and research into Big Data, cyber security, engineering and more. One of the main goals of his visit was to showcase Mizzou to potential doctoral students with interests in these areas, which align with MU Engineering’s pillars of Big Data Analytics, Biomedical Innovations and Sustainability inFEWSed (Food, Energy, Water, Smart Cities). The visit also served to highlight Amrita’s strengths for potential Mizzou students who may want to utilize Amrita for Study Abroad programs or graduate studies.
