The Formula category racing car designed and built by students of Amrita University has won multiple awards, including the National Award for 'Best Appearance at SUPRA 2016, a national engineering contest organised by SAE India. The car also received third place overall and bagged the second prize in design and cost estimation categories.  Thirty-six teams from top universities participated in the annual competition which presents students from engineering institutes with the challenging task of designing, simulating and modelling a formula-category racing car. Each team designs and fabricates the vehicle based on strict guidelines, which also has to perform in a dynamic event in a live race track. The Amrita University team, consisting of 24 students, designed and developed the prototype car, called Student Formula Vehicle (SFV), and showcased its racing capabilities at the Buddh International Circuit near Delhi.

Earlier this month, Dr. Bodo Eickhoff, Senior Vice-President of Sales & Marketing at Molecular Diagnostics, a large multi-national pharmaceutical company, visited the Amrita University, Amritapuri campus, and addressed the students, faculty, and staff in a seminar titled “Integrating Sciences from a Holistic Perspective: How Human Microbiome and Soil Food Web Might Work Together”. An expert in many fields, Dr. Eickhoff initially focused on research, working on HIV co-receptors and cancer therapy, but then moving on to an industry which revolved around producing novel biotechnology products and getting patents. He took an even larger step away from his starting point when he went into manufacturing. Dr. Eickhoff explained that these radical changes in his career provided him a chance to view situations from different perspectives. Science was more complex and based on rationality and logic, whereas business was linear and required an aspect of socially interacting with people. Through these changes, Dr. Eickhoff understood that the biotechnology industry is not solely about making a product, but is also about customers who are human beings.

Drug repurposing refers to finding alternate indications to approved drugs, leads in regular development cycles, or even compounds previously discontinued from development. This collaborative project between Amrita University (Bengaluru Campus) and Jawaharlal Nehru University (New Delhi) aims to develop web-based UI landscapes to provide a data-centric deep mining technique that lets researchers formulate sophisticated drug repositioning hypotheses. Dr. Prashanth Athri, Associate Professor at the Department of Computer Science, Amrita School of Engineering, Bengaluru, who is the Project Co-ordinator and Principal Investigator (PI), will build druggability profiles based on large proteomics, protein-protein interaction network and drug databases, using big data technologies, rule engines and web-based visualization. Dr. Abhinav Grover, Jawaharlal University (Principal Investigator (PI)), will validate hypotheses using both biophysical simulations and wet lab experiments. The project will provide a critical tool to serve scientists in pharmaceutical research, as well as pharmacogenomics.

Students of Amrita School of Engineering, Bengaluru, has developed a Smart Glove called MUDRA which converts hand gestures based on Indian sign language into spoken English, potentially paving the way for speech-impaired individuals to communicate more effectively with others. This was achieved by a team of four B. Tech. students - Abhijith Bhaskaran, Anoop G. Nair, Deepak Ram and Krishnan Ananthanarayanan at Amrita Robotics Research Lab (ARRL), Bengaluru campus.

Simple, low-cost quality improvement techniques like preventing hospital-acquired infections through hand hygiene, empowerment of nurses to better communication patient concerns, effective communication, surgical safety check-lists to improve teamwork, and conducting mortality meetings can do much more to improve outcomes of child heart surgery than expensive new technology and equipment in developing countries like India. This was the view of top pediatric cardiologists from countries like India, US, Pakistan, Malaysia and Vietnam attending a two-day session of The International Quality Improvement Collaborative (IQIC) on Congenital Heart Surgery at Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences from June 24 – 25, 2016

Resources

Each of the three Amrita Schools of Engineering has its own unique ambience and resources. They all share the commitment to provide state-of-the-art facilities and diverse resources, as needed, to enable students to excel in their chosen fields.

Libraries

Large central libraries exist on all three Amrita campuses. The libraries have tens of thousands of books, several thousand project reports and hundreds of journals. There are CDs, DVDs and online journals. Interlibrary loan is possible on a per-need basis.

All three libraries use a Library Information System. They feature fully automated catalog and search capabilities. Several departments have their own departmental libraries as well.

Hostel Accomodation

Residential students are housed in single-gender hostels where they benefit from the availability of extra-curricular enrichment activities such as yoga and meditation as well as sports and study facilities. Delicious vegetarian meals are served three times a day in student dining halls. Students also have the option of eating in the canteen and/or juice stall on payment.


Each campus has a prayer hall and one or more stores, well-stocked with school and household items. Amenities vary by campus and typically include a branch or ATM of Dhanalakshmi Bank, a tailor's shop, an internet cafe, STD/ISD phone facilities and a copy center. »»
