IEEE BVM SB is organizing its next flagship event under the ‘IEEE NPSS - Nuclear & Plasma Sciences Society’ called ‘Virtual Visit on Modern Physics 2020’. The event’s theme is on delivering practical experience and knowledge to enrich the students and academic professionals alike with topics based on Modern Physics like Nuclear & Plasma Sciences, Space Technologies, & Renewable Energy, etc.
In this unprecedented time of the pandemic, all students and professionals who participate can go beyond physical boundaries with the modern-day technology to learn from the experts around the world. So, in order to impart something different and interesting we are organizing these Virtual Visit sessions.
Birla Vishvakarma Mahavidyalaya Engineering College, an Autonomous Institute managed by Charutar Vidya Mandal was established in 1948 from donations made by the Birla Education Trust on the behest of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, the first Home Minister of independent India. The college was inaugurated by Lord Mountbatten, the Governor General of India on 14 June 1948, and rose to prominence under the stewardship of Prof. Junnarkar and Prof. K.M. Dholakia. It was one of the few colleges in India that adopted the progressive credit system of relative grading in India. The college has awarded degrees to over 20,000 graduates.
The first fifty years of CVM coincided more or less with the second half of the twentieth century. Judged by any yardstick, these first fifty years of CVM have been immensely successful. The vision, dedication and commitment of the founders of CVM and its subsequent leaders can be seen clearly today in the results of their tireless efforts. Vallabh Vidyanagar is today an impressive and thriving educational campus in the heart of Charutar, which is itself heartland of Gujarat. Naturally CVM must also make future plans which enable it to generate successful responses to some of the challenges which the society is going to face.
IEEE BVM SB was established on 29th August 2016. The main motto of the Student Branch is to connect engineers from various departments of the institute to come together, identify problem statements and act accordingly to improvise and promote Technical Activities which can, in turn, be formed for "Advancing Technology for Humanity". It aims to give students the cutting-edge skills, confidence, and intellect with which they can easily face the competitive world and contribute to human welfare by organizing competitions, workshops, expert talks, seminars, and symposiums on different technical topics.
Nuclear and Plasma Science Society was originated in 2018 at IEEE BVM SB as the Professional Group on Nuclear Science within the IRE. The IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society (NPSS) covers the fields of Fusion Technology, Nuclear Medical and Imaging Sciences, Particle Accelerator Science and Technology, Pulsed Power Systems, Radiation Effects, Radiation Instrumentation, Plasma Sciences and Applications, Standards for Nuclear Instruments and Detectors, and Computer Applications in Nuclear and Plasma Sciences.
