Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, invites applications for its short term course on 'Telecommunications Networks with State of the Arts Hands On Experience'. The course is run by the Department of Electronics and Electrical Communication Engineering (E&ECE) at IITK. Interested candidates can apply online by logging on to the official website of IITK.
Research on telecommunication systems started in the Department of Electronics and Electrical Communication Engineering (E&ECE) at IIT Kharagpur in early fifties. Recently, realising the needs for hands-on training in this area to bridge the gap between theory and practice, E&ECE department has developed a State-of-the-Art Laboratory. The laboratory has been set up with a wide range of modern telecommunication equipments, including IP and MPLS routers, Ethernet and ATM switches, ISDN and EPABX systems, ADMS as SDH nodes, wireless access points, network access control and intrusion detection software, etc.
This networking infrastructure is used across the department building to form in-house network test-beds with different possible practical topological formations, with which IITK's students carry out wide range of experimentations on networking concepts.
About the course:
The proposed 8-days-long comprehensive training would consist of theory and laboratory classes going hand-in-hand. Thus, the short-term course will offer, along with stimulating lectures in the area, a rare opportunity to gather a hands-on experience on how telecommunication networks are formed in practice and, how data, voice and video are transferred between heterogeneous networks therein, through Ethernet, router, ATM, SDH and MPLS based networking infrastructures. The course will also provide a forum for professional interaction between the IIT community and others, which would hopefully lead to useful research collaboration amongst the participating organisations in due course of time.
Who can attend:
Teachers from Engineering Colleges/ Technical Institutes/ Universities will find the course very useful for teaching and taking labs of Computer Communication and Networks. The course will be useful for the executives and managers and engineers from Industry and Organizations who are engaged in computer communication related work.
