Main goals of SKEP include professional skills development, imparting technical expertise to develop viable applications, disseminating useful knowledge from current fields of interest to the beneficiaries and inculcating technical and logical thinking among the student community. SKEP sessions are conducted by invited experts on the state-of-the-art topics from among the research, academic and industrial areas. The intended audience are students, faculty, IEEE members and other interested persons from research, industry and academic institutions.
SKEP sessions are typically held in the lecture-cum-demonstration format and are intended to be highly interactive. The platform provided is expected to be a perfect avenue for industry-Institute-academia interactions with ideas, opinions and visions being exchanged freely. The sessions are usually of 90 minutes in duration. The venues of SKEP programmes span colleges and other institutions spread over length and breadth of this Section’s geography. Professionals are expected to benefit from continuing education and skill upgradation. In addition, this program seeks to motivate and inspire the young student community and endow them with a rare insight into what the industry has to offer and its expectations, thus helping them ease their entry into corporate life.
