Every topic, from quantum computing to new-age bio-enhanced cement, was explained by subject matter experts and passionately discussed by the attending students.
Research at an undergraduate level is an exciting and interesting prospect for many students. To guide students interested in research activities at MIT, the Research Society of Manipal collaborated with thrustMIT for a walkthrough of how UG research works, with a detailed look at researching and publishing a paper.
With webinars held by top industry experts in various fields, the participants at Paper Presentation got a platform to present their ideas and hone their skills in research. Read on to find out what the event included.
The most exciting things in science are some of the most far fetched ones. Robotics is a field that is still finding its footing in the research world due to its ever-evolving and vast nature. The Research Society Manipal recognised this and arranged for a session with one of MIT’s alumni, Debasmita Ghose, to speak about the scope of the field along with her experiences as a research student abroad.
The Research Society, a new and upcoming club in Manipal, recently conducted a webinar for students interested in research. Upamanyu Ghose, an alumni at the institute, spoke to students about the significance of research and the inspirations that facilitated his dive into it.
Two professors from MAHE, Dr Krishnamurthy Bhat and Dr Anish Warrier, recently participated in a research expedition to the continent of Antarctica. The MIT Post got a chance to speak to the pair and learn about their journey, their research, and life at the South Pole.
