Welcome to ICEEMS'19
ICEEMS is an International conference on Energy, Environment, Materials & Safety jointly organized by the Divisions of Civil Engineering, Electrical & Electronics Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Safety & Fire Engineering of School of Engineering, CUSAT under TEQIP Phase – III. ICEEMS‘19 will be held during April 25-27,2019, at CUSAT campus. It is proposed to have several parallel sessions with invited keynote lectures by eminent academicians and experts from various fields.
Energy security, Economic growth, and Environment protection are the national energy policy drivers of any country. The increased production and consumption in energy sector lead to high levels of pollution and eventually climate change with possible disastrous consequences. At the same time, the energy needs to be made available at an acceptable cost in order to avoid negative impacts on economic growth. Hence it is the time to address the important aspects of energy and environment with a holistic approach. Reasearch on materials is expected to play a prominent role in the development of sustainable technologies for energy conversion, storage, and savings. ICEEMS'19 offers a common platform to share and discuss the emerging trends in the above fields.This is the second edition of ICEEMS, the first being ICEEMS'14 which was a grand success.
Cochin University of Science and Technology
Cochin University of Science and Technology(CUSAT), Kochi, Kerala, India is a premier institute of the country. The academic diversity evidenced in the curricula ranging from the traditional courses in science and humanities to the most advanced programmes in technology and engineering is the unique strength of CUSAT. The pursuit of excellence through these programmes has given CUSAT a national and international acclaim.
School of Engineering
The School of Engineering is a department of CUSAT and was established in 1979 for offering part-time M.Tech programmes for practicing engineers. B. Tech programmes in Civil Engineerng, Mechanical Engineering, Electronics and Comminication Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering and Information Technology in 1995, which turned out to be a milestone in the growth of the school. B. Tech in Safety and Fire Engineering was added in 1996 and B Tech in Electrical and Electronics Engineering was added in 2003. Currently the School of Engineering is a research centre and major consulting centre. A number of research projects of national importance have been sanctioned to the School by agencies like DRDO, ISRO, AICTE, UGC, Coir Board, Coconut Development Board etc.
Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme
Technical Education Quality Improvement Programme (TEQIP) was envisaged as a long-term programme of about 10-12 years duration to be implemented in 2-3 phases for transformation of the Technical Education System with the World Bank assistance. The reform process needs to be sustained and scaled-up for embedding gains in the system and taking the transformation to a higher level. School of Engineering, Cochin University of Science and Technology is one of the 2 institutions in Kerala selected for TEQIP-III.
THDC Institute of Hydropower Engineering and Technology
It is a globally admired institution of education and research in hydropower and other sustainable energy resources. School of Engineering is the mentor institute of THDC Institute of Hydropower Engineering and Technology under TEQIP-III
