Dr.SNS ignites SSS

29 June 2008 would be a remarkable date for futurologists as fifteen engineering students doing their third and fourth year turned CEO they come together to launch their respective companies as subsidiaries under the aegis of the Students Software Solutions to be run wholly by students themselves. SSS was started by Anmol Vij, an engineering student, some time ago as a natural successor to CUG which we had covered in the previous blogs. Under this, each CEO will employ 25-40 students of their choice and depute them to work on the projects. They will devote roughly three hours everyday. The fifteen CEO and their colleges are Anmol Vij, R. Vivek, and S. Srinivasan(Sri Krishna College of Engineering and Technology), K. Ajay Naveen (Coimbatore Institute of Technology), N. Alagendran, (Karpagam College of Engineering), V. Ashyanth(PSG College of Technology) Ashish Vij(SNS College of Technology) A.P. Sathish (SNS College of Engineering) S.N.Dilipkumar(Tamil Nadu College of Engineering) G. Mugundha, Robin Tyagi ( College of Engineering and Technology), Nivedita Murugan (Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham) Radhasubramanian(Vellore Institute of Technology) D. Saranya (Sri Ramakrishna Engineering College) and K. Arun Prakash (Sri Ramakrishna Institute of Technology)

The formal launch of the companies took place at Hotel Mangala International on 29.06.2008 and suitably the companies chose Dr.S.N.Subramaniam, Chairman, SNS Group of Institutions as their Chief Guest. Dr.SNS provided the needed inspiration and ignition at the start of such a promising event. In his special address, Dr.SNS firstly congratulated and appreciated the entire team and the founder chairman Anmol Vij. He expressed his pride and happiness to be a part of such a noble venture. He highlighted the importance and value of entreprenuership in making India a superpower. He told the audience that entreprenuership beckons creativity, taking calculated risks and dedication and mentioned that these CEOs have them in surplus. He drew parallels from entreprenuers and visionaries like Dhirubhai Ambani. S.Narayanamoorthy and Dr.Abdul Kalam to motivate the gathering. He said this is the first time in the history of any country in the world, such a venture took place. He also expressed his astonishment on thinking what this young audience who can do this at their 20s do in their 60s. He said the SSS motivated SNS and not the vice versa. He once again departed with a wish that SSS becomes a multi billion dollar company. His time bound speech made the audience spell bound. Mr.Murli Mohan, Mr.Siddique and Dr.V.P.Arunachalam also spoke during the occassion.

It was also a special occassion for SNSCE as it was also one of the colleges under this enterprising endeavour. In fact, SNSCE is the only college started in the current academic year in the list of these 15 elite colleges. A.P.Sathish, a first year IT student is the CEO of PROTECH, a subsidiary of SSS formed by 35 students of SNSCE. The students of CSE & IT departments of SNSCE are a part of this project. The list of students are S.Ambarish, K.Angammaiy, S.Arun Kannan, S.Chandru Kumar, N.Mahendran, M. Manoj Kumar, N.Muthu Ezhilarasan, R.Nandhini Priya, A.Poonkuzhali, N.Ramya, M.Sairamsanthoshkumar, S.Sajutheen, R.V.Satheesh Kumar, A.P.Sathish (CEO), S.Shylaja, A.Thirunavukkarasu, S.Vigneswari, C.Vishnu Chakravarthi, M.Vivek Kumar, P.Vyshak(all IT), A.Anbarasan, Annie Ratna Priya, K.Arul Kumar, R.Catherin Hilda, R.Dhanya, S.Dhiviya, B.Jagadish Kumar, V.Kanimozhi, T.Karthiga, O.Karthikeyan,R.Shanmugaraj V.Venkatesh, M.Vignesh(all CSE) and Mehul Arun Shah (ECE).

The launch of subsidaries SSS is indeed a worthwhile, applaudable and heartwarming effort. As Rabindranath Tagore says "Age considers, Youth ventures". SNSCE wishes the venture all success

Dhanya at the peak of the pack

Dhanya (CSE) struck a reverberation with the Indian cricket team. After finishing second best in most of the tests, she finally got into the top groove and at that too at the top occassion - First Semester Examination. R.Dhanya topped the college and of course her class with a GPA of 9.6. She was succeeded by department mate R.Rakesh, our regular topper who managed a GPA of 9.4. Rakesh was closely followed by another mate B.Vaishnavi, whose 9.3 made a hatrick for CSE.

Yamini (9.2) (ECE) who was steadily competing in the race for toppers reaped rich dividends when she managed to become the ECE topper and hold the 4th rank in the college. She was followed by P.Dhivya of CSE (9.1) whose progress has been the pride of SNSCE. P.Dhivya, a rural Tamil medium student showed hard work and steady progress and emerged into the list of toppers in the Model Examination. Her entry into the list of toppers in the Semester Examinations shows that her success was no flash in the pan. The regular toppers complete the list with Prem Gokull and Surayya emerging the toppers of IT and EEE respectively. Swadhini, Alamelu, Nancy Mary, Saranyaa Devi, Preethiya (all ECE), Lavanya (IT) and Vignesh (EEE) make up the numbers for the top ten.

Our Principal Dr.G.Karuppuswami met the students in person and complimented them on their performance while driving home the fact that "Success was a journey and not a destination"

National Science Day observed at SNSCE

February 28 is celebrated as National Science Day in India to commemorate the Nobel Prize awarded to Sir.C.V.Raman. SNS College of Engineering embarked to observe National Science Day through a debate.

“Science without Humanity” is one of the seven social sins proclaimed by Mahatma Gandhiji. However the rapid development of science forces the society to strike a compromise with the values of humanity. In this juncture, the National Science Day 2008 proved an ideal platform for the SNSCE students to debate on the topic “Does Science destroys Moral Values?” Prof.R.Natarajan, HoD, Department of Science and Humanities moderated the lively debate. The team of D.Krishnanand, Jyothish.M.Peter, Annie Ratna Priya and Buma Dharsiny were of the view that Science does not kill human values. Their nemesis was the team of P.Nirmala, T.Vanathi, N.Muthu Ezhilarasan and K.Rajbharath. An august gathering of about 60 students from all departments of SNSCE eagerly followed the debate. The organizing committee comprised of Mr.Pon.Rathnavel , Lecturer – Mechanical Engineering and students Ms.K.Alamelu and Mr.S.M.Ramesh(both ECE).

Prof.R.Natarajan we
lcomed the gathering and participants for the debate and elucidated on the importance and legend of the National Science Day. He also briefly explained the baseline of the topic and invited views from the participants. D.Krishnanand (I EEE) opened up the debate. He mentioned that he was unable to configure how people can imagine of science destroying moral values. He followed it up with examples of how science can enhance the moral values in day to day lives. However his class mate P.Nirmala (I EEE) ran through the same list of examples on how science could destroy moral values. This had the audience in splits. She ended up quoting Einstein “Lets make things simple. Not Simpler” and said that since Science was so simple, morality became an easy target. Jyothish M. Peter (I CSE) with his valiant voice and deft diction made strong points for the cause of science not destroying human values. He was equally combated by the enthusiastic T. Vanathi (I ECE) who was firm that the current generation is suffering from too much of science. Annie Ratna Priya (I CSE) drew parallels from India in the 1960s and India in the 2010s and explained how science made things easier for human beings in the gap of 50 years. N. Muthu Ezhilarasan (I IT) then brought in the issue of development Vs environment and quoted a series of environmental issues to argue and augur his case. The final speakers for both sides V.Bumadharsiny (I IT) and K. Rajbharath (I ECE) hottened up the debate. They both threw pointers at each other and reiterated in such force that enthused the audience who kept cheering for both of them. Their arguments took rapid strides and the moderator Prof.R.Natarajan had to bring the house down to order a couple of times.

Prof.R.Natarajan resumed his speech after all the participants and firstly applauded the participants. He explained that he kept science out of the discussion by arranging it in a simple hall devoid of any sound systems and LCDs. He mentioned that science was inevitable to the humanity. However when kept in a scale with morality, science should take a back seat. He emphasized the audience to always keep morality high and never let it down in the sake of promoting science. He quoted points from all the speakers and concluded that science and morality should be in complete harmony and there should be no case of each destroying the others. The verdict was well received by the audience and they were very happy to be a part of such an intriguing and informative debate on the lovely occasion.

ECE pips EEE for Cricket Championship

It was literally a nail biting match as Vigneshnathan(EEE) and Ramesh(ECE) were biting them for most of the time. EEE under the captainship of Vigneshnathan got most things correct but his opposite number Jeyamohan got things correct just when needed and crusied ahead in this great cricket match.

EEE won the toss and preferred to chase the target. The openers Jeyamohan and Ramesh fell cheaply, the former to a run out and the latter to an over ambitious pull shot. Murugesan also did not last long. However Senthamil Sakthivel and Manoj played steadily. The scoreboard got ticking thanks to the duo and some insipid bowling by Vignesh and Elavarshan, who together contributed more than 20 extras. Subash brought in his leg spinners and after being hit for a couple of fours got Manoj and Doora in the next two balls. Thirupathy succumbed in the next over (caught beautifully by Anandraj) and so did Senthamil. EEE gathered the much needed momentum and soon sent Naveen and Anandakumar thanks to the medium pace of the short duo of Anand and Vignesh. Suddenly 81/3 became 88/9. Velmurugan and Prashanth batted patiently and helped the team reach 100. But it was all over in 18.4 overs and ECE was bowled out for 107.
In the half time, Vigneshnathan sounded optimistic and was sure that his batsmen would deliver the goods. Jeyamohan said that he was prepared for the EEE batsman and gave his team a chance with his bowling strength. Vigneshnathan and Anandraj opened the batting for EEE as Ramesh and Jeyamohan opened the bowling also for ECE. Things were going pretty smooth for EEE till the last ball of the 6th over. Ramesh who tried hard was finally rewarded when Vigneshnathan hooked a full toss to fine leg, where Prashanth held a stunner in his left hand. Velmurugan's next over turned to be more than productive as he had Anandraj and Elavarashan in successive deliveries. While Murugesan held the catch of the tournament covering more than 20 metres on the wrong side and grasping it with a dive, Thirupathy showed great reflexes to take a quickie. The fourth wicket partnership worked for the EEE department as well. Dhanush and Mithun with their contrasting styles plundered the ECE bowling attack. Mithun in particular was merciless and hit five successive boundaries in a span of two overs. The battle seemed over, but ECE guys were catching beautifully. Manoj who came up with slow medium forced Dhanush to edge a delivery which was snapped by Doora in a sniff. Manoj then took a stunner at cover to get rid of Mithun. Saravana Kumar was mankaded a couple of balls later and suddenly the match seemed wide open. However with 12 runs needed from 36 balls and 4 wickets in hand, not many gave ECE a chance. But Ananda Kumar who was bowling a wide per two balls produced a beautiful over where he docked the stumps of T.K.Viknesh and Ashok in a space of two deliveries. Suddenly there was a momentum shift and in the next over Velmurugan castled Karthik. There were nervous moments for the last wicket pair of Subash and Vignesh, but Manoj produced a beauty of a delivery to breach Subash's defence.
If you expected delirium, it wasnt to happen. Though the ECE were in delight and EEE in despair, they controlled the emotions and shook hands in true sportsmanship. D.Saravanamoorthy, our PD expressed that this spirit of sportsmanship was the high point of the game. He also commended the catching of ECE, the fielding of Dhanush and the all round abilities of Manoj and Mithun.
One of the enjoyable aspects of the game was the commentary of our Lecturer Pon. Rathnavel, a freelance commentator and columnist. He had the audience in splits with his humorous digs on the proceedings and there was times when even the players bursted out.
Nonetheless it was a fitting finale to the games segment of our inaugural Sports Day. With this win, ECE also emerged the top team pipping CSE by five points.
ECE 107 all out in 18.4 overs (Manoj 19, Senthamil 17, Vignesh 3/37) beat EEE 101 all out in 16.4 overs (Mithun 37, Dhanush 14, Velmurugan 3/18)

SNSCE @ Kovai Marathon 2008

Kovai Marathon is slowly becoming a regular annual event in the Coimbatore calendar and Kovai Marathon 2008 was more dazzling and receptive than ever. Kovai Marathon 2008 organised by Tamil Nadu Atheletic Association jointly with Aircel and Environmental Cell Division, PWD recorded 945 participants and thereby made a new record. The event was a grand spectacle on Sunday, February 03 2008 and SNSCE is proud that it made a small contribution towards the success of the event.

SNSCE played two roles with respect to Kovai Marathon 2008. Exactly 32 students of SNSCE were a part of this race and a half a dozen volunteer team performed with elan the most critical of the jobs.

A six member volunteer team comprising of Pon.Rathnavel - Lecturer, D.Saravanamoorthy - Physical Director, P.Gopalakrishnan - Office Assistant and students Sajjad Khan, S.Vignesh, V.Lawrence (all EEE) was bestowed with the responsibility of providing the marathon runners with bun, egg and water at the end of the race and collect their numbers. The team planned well, organised better and executed to their best and had no single participant waiting. They responded to the participants even before they could send an eye signal. Even when there was a thronging crowd, the team was fitting to the task and avoided any hiccupps or contrevorsies. The organisers had a special praise for the volunteers team during the valedictory ceremony.

SNSCE was perhaps the only engineering institute with more than 10 participants. There were 32 students interested to go the distance(15 kilometres) and all of them were first time runners. P.Raja of ECE was very unlucky as he finished the race in 15th place, five below the prize margin. He was followed by S.Ramachandran(ECE), N.Gopinath (EEE), G.Vivek (EEE), K.Prakash (EEE), M.Vignesh (CSE), L.Maikannan (CSE), S.M.Ramesh (ECE), J.Arun Kumar (ECE) and A.P.Sathish (IT) all of whom finished within the top 50.

Predictably, Pudhukottai Sports Clubs made a clean sweep in the competetion. The chief coach of the Kavinadu Atheletic Association Mr.Loganathan whose club won a record 24 prizes happened to be a coach of our Physical Director Mr.D.Saravanamoorthy. A renowned person in the field of atheletics coaching, Mr.Loganathan spent some ten minutes with the boys and gave them valuable tips on preparing for track events.

Later the participants and volunteers worked in tandem with the authorities to disperse the flagpoles and flags and earned special appreciation from one and all. It was hard work for the students and volunteers from 05.00 hrs to 11.00 hrs and when you taught these people were off to a well deserved rest - they were getting ready to trail a blaze for the intramural cricket finals, which was to start at 14.00 hrs.

EEE snatch the Ball Badminton Honours

The EEE guys won their first title thanks to a combination of skill and strategy. The EEE guys seemed to be in a different league in this game and seemed to have a ball.

The semifinals saw EEE pitted against ECE. After accomplishing an unbeatable lead easily in both the sets, EEE allowed complacency to creep in. However they managed to come back without much damage to trounce ECE in straight sets 28-10,28-12. The second semifinal was a close affair with CSE and IT fighting it out to the end. In both the sets, CSE suddenly snatched from the half way mark and scored 10 points in succession. Anbarasan proved to be a major force as he slammed on the empty places. The final result unfolded 28-14, 28-13 in CSE's favour.

The first set in the finals was upbeat with both sides contesting hard. In fact, CSE went to snatch the lead 10-4. But the cool head of Vignesh and Subash complimented by some power hitting by Vigneshnathan and Lawrence saw the EEE in full vigour. They went on to snatch the first set 28-16. Buoyed by the success, they simply outplayed CSE in all aspects of the game to snatch the second set 28-2. A comprehensive and cohesive display saw the EEE walk out in flying colours.

The Scores
Finals : EEE bt CSE (28-16, 28-2)
Semifinals : CSE bt IT (28-14,28-13) & EEE bt ECE (28-10,28-12)

Thirumurgan & Karthikaa are the Chess Champs

It was Thirumurugan's week as he took everyone by surprise - his class, his opponents and everyone in SNSCE. A slow learner in academics, he created a furore when he represented his class for the Chess Tournament. But he delivered an equally stunning performance to beat Krishnakumar of I CSE. On the other hand, crowd favourite Velmurugan of I ECE had an easy outing against the over cautious MG Ravichandran of I IT. The final clash of the Murugans' was an absorbing contest. When you thought Vel had an edge over Thiru, the latter bounced in from nowhere with a surprising move that left Vel stunned. In another 5 minutes, Thiru stunned one and all with a checkmate.

In the girls side, the final was a real roller coaster. Dhanya of I CSE and Kaarthika of I ECE expectedly made it to finals making short work of Nazimul Zafira(I IT) and Gowthami (I EEE) respectively. The final was labelled the battle of intellects and for most of the time in finals, Dhanya ruled the roost but a poor move cost her he queen and thereby the match. Karthikaa ensured that she made Dhanya's mistake count.
The competition was a reminder of the fact that if you made the right moves you would definetely win.

Republic Day @ SNSCE

The 59th Republic Day was celebrated with pomp and grandeur all over the country and so was the (first) Republic Day celebrations at SNSCE. The function was optional for the students and faculty members but that did not stop a jostling crowd gathered to commemorate and celebrate the spirit of Indian Republic. The organising comittee comprising of our Physical Director D.Saravanamoorthy, Office Assistant P.Gopal and Student R.Britty(EEE) took care that everything was planned well and thereby went well.

The talkative R.S.Pradeepraj (ECE) was rightly the MoC for the function. The function started with the assembly of students and prayer. After the prayer, our Principal Dr.G.Karuppuswami hoisted the national flag as per customs. The girl students wonderfully rendered the Flag song in chorus. The Republic Day Parade Committee headed by Vyshak (IT) (comprising of students from all the Departments) then marched past bestowing honour of the day to our Principal. Our Principal gave a key note address highlighting the achievements of our country in the past and in the present. He also formulated a list of things India could well achieve by 2020 and urged students to work towards the occassion. The address was well received by the students. The function ended with the National Anthem after which the students posed in groups in the backdrop of the national flag.

CSE enters the winning list finally

Their boys may have finished unlucky finalists twice. But their girls were simply "spot on" during their first outing in the intramural tournaments. CSE Girls ably guided by their captain Subhashree literally outvollyed their competitors in the Volleyball Tournament for girls. One of the CSE boys interpreted that the boys were satisifed with silvers and as girls are girls only gold would do for them. Humour apart, CSE gave a good account of themselves and possessed good serving skills of Subhasree and had an extremely agile Divya in the front.

The intramural volleyball tournament was the first for girl students and the first match saw IT and ECE girls vying against each other. The IT girls had to fight it out in an engrossing battle which they won largely thanks to their captain Zafira who could serve nothing but aces. In the another match, EEE girls were caught sleeping on strategy at the start of the game which proved costly as CSE girls sailed through.
The finals was more of an even contest but CSE girls had things going on steadily for them and the win seemed inevitable. Enjoying the largest population of girl students, the CSE had the maximum cheering and the cheers only grew louder towards the end. The finals was graced by the presence of Mr.S.Ravichandran, Physical Director, SNSCT who also gave a pep talk to both the teams.

The Sachins, Yuvrajs, Dravids and Dhonis of SNS College of Engineering are off for their first outside venture. They are one of the 32 teams registered for the CFE Bi Decennial Twenty20 cricket tournament to be held between January 18 - January 20,2008 at CECRI CaMPUS, Karaikudi.
The team will be captained by L.Maikannan of CSE Department who set the ground ablaze with his knock of 63 from 36 balls in the intramural tournament. His ally would be C.Manoj of ECE Department who is a good tactician and a reliale wicket keeper. The team also features the likes of hard hitting Muthu Ezhilarasan(IT), the more than useful allrounder Jeyamohan(ECE) and the canny operator Pradeepraj(ECE) in the ranks. The team has a good line up of batsman and bowlers and most importantly unity and intensity. They will be coached and managed by Mr.D.Saravanamoorthy, PD, SNSCE.
The schedule pitts them against Under 22 Trichy team in the round of 32 and the defending champions (if they go through) to the round of 16. To add to the non flip side, the players were busy with University Exams and Pongal Holidays that deprived them of any practice. However the team set off in a confident mood to Karaikudi. Mr.Saravanamoorthy said "Of course, we have a lot of things against us. But we are bothered about looking ahead and not looking behind."
Well, we have got no option but to admire their grit and wish them best of luck. All the Best SNSCE XI

Exams give way to Pongal

The Anna University Terminal Examinations finally came to an end on Sunday, 13 January 2008. The final examination was "Basics of Civil and Mechanical Engineering" incidentally came with a tampered question paper format and a few questions seemed out of the blue. However the students exuded confidence and claimed that they had done well. The students surprisingly did not get needlessly perturbed by the consequences of the examinations and immediately rubbed into the festive mood. The normal glued looks and heated exchanges on the questions and answers were replaced by warm wishes of Happy Pongal. They seemed to be in a great hurry to wish one and all and immediately pack their bags for a trip to home.
Overall the students were pleased with the examinations. They rated Engineering Mathematics as the toughest of the papers and Technical English the best one. They were pretty happy with the remaining four theory papers as well.
The college has declared Pongal Holidays from 14 January 2008 to 20 January 2008 and will re-open on Monday, 21 January 2008 for the second semester. The planning has been more meticulous for the second semester and neccessary arrangements were made in advance. On this occassion, SNS College of Engineering greets one and all to have a happy time during the harvest festival of Pongal. Happy Pongal

A Makeover for Engineering Graphics at Dr.MCET

The Anna University has given the traditional Engineering graphics a mordern and a pragmatic look. Dr.R.Radhakrishnan, the Vice Chancellor claimed that Anna University was the first to dispense with the drawing boards and embrace drafting and modelling software inaugrating an one day seminar organised for the (proposed) teachers of the (II Semester) common subject "Engineering Graphics" held at Dr.Mahalingam College of Engineering and Technology(Dr.MCET) on Saturday, January 05 2008.
Dr.Radhakrishnan spoke of his ambitious and innovative ventures to bridge the industry - academic gap and also about a few issues pertaning to faculty members and technical institutions. He stressed on the innovations carried out in the paper Engineering Graphics and on how manual drafting was replaced by free hand sketching and CAD. After the inauguration, there were technical sessions on "Engineering Curves" "Engineering Solids" and "2D Drafting" pertaining to the syllabus handled wonderfully by Dr.Calvin.S.King and Mr.Rajashekar of Dr.MCET. The post lunch session saw a demonstration of the software "Solid Drawings Editor" and "Solid Works" by the CADD Centre. The session gave way to an hour long hands on skill training programme of the faculty members.The host institution had also provided the participants with a hard and soft copy of the presentations along with free demo software of "Solid Works" in a compliment kit.
Off the 75 and odd participants, SNS College of Engineering was represented by Mr.Pon.Rathnavel. He was all praise for the excellent organising skills and hospitality extended by the host institution - Dr.Mahalingam College of Technology. He also felt that the seminar helped him to meet his old colleagues and friends and also to touch base with the other institutions.
In all, its Good Bye to those Drawing Boards and Mini Drafters and you got to login to CAD softwares and plotters.
