Centenary Celebration 

Department of Mechanical Engineering

IIEST Shibpur (erstwhile B.E. College and BESU Shibpur)

Centenary Celebration: Message from The Chair

The Centenary Lecture Series (CLS) has come to its end, with the last weekly lecture of the series being held this week. 

 

The CLS was started last year, with the inaugural lecture delivered by Prof Amitava Ghosh, former Director of IIT Kharagpur and a 1962 alumnus of erstwhile B E College, on 28th of Dec 2021, coinciding with the inaugural day of the Centenary Celebrations of the Department of Mechanical Engineering, IIEST Shibpur. 

Since then we have had 42 lectures delivered by a panel of distinguished speakers from across the globe, every Tuesday since then with a few exceptions on account of holidays and semester examinations in the department. 

Overwhelming encouragement and support we received from many senior members of alumni for the continuation of the lecture series. Centenary Celebration Committee gratefully acknowledges the same.

 

On behalf of the department too, I thank all our esteemed speakers for enriching the Centenary Lecture Series of the department through their wonderful lectures that touched upon almost every significant domain relevant to Mechanical Engineering. I also thank the members of the faculty and officers of the institute for making this year-long celebration a great success. Students and scholars of the department, many of whom took active participation, also deserve appreciation.

 

Most of the lectures of the series, for which we have the respective speakers' consent for sharing, have been put online through the Youtube Channel "IIESTS Mechanical Centenary Celebration" for open access.  

 

Thanks to one and all.

Update: The Forty-second Centenary Lecture will be delivered by Prof. Prabir Basu, Former Director of the Centre for Energy Studies at Technical University of Nova Scotia, Canada and an Alumnus of 1967.

 

The Lecture is scheduled at 7:00 PM on 22nd November 2022 (Tuesday).

Open invitation by the Centenary Celebration Committee

The Department of Mechanical Engineering completes 100 years of existence in 2021. The department has been planning for a series of events, mostly in online mode, which are to take place over the next few months to celebrate the centenary year. A Centenary Celebration Committee has been formed including departmental faculty members and selected alumni to coordinate various activities as part of the centenary celebration. There will be a Centenary Lecture Series and the weekly invited lectures will be given by speakers (including department's alumni) from industrial organizations as well as educational and research institutes.

A few research workshops are also proposed to be organized by different student chapters attached to the department (viz ASME, IMechE, SAE and ISHRAE) over the next few months covering various domains of Mechanical Engineering. Also, the student society of the department (Society of Mechanical Engineers, SME) has planned for their annual technical fest, IMPETUS 5 to coincide with the celebration.

The inaugural event is scheduled to be held on 28 th December 2021 Tuesday (4 pm onwards) to mark the beginning of the centenary celebration. On the same day, we will have the first Centenary Lecture, immediately after the inauguration. Links to the online inaugural event and the weekly Centenary Lectures will be shared through the event website, institute and department web pages and also through social media posts. 

The Centenary Celebration Committee invites you to join the inaugural event as well as the other subsequent events that will take place over the first few months of the coming year 2022.

Update: Since the inauguration of the Centenary Celebrations of the Department of Mechanical Engineering in Dec 2021, weekly lectures of the Centenary Lecture Series (CLS) were being held every week on Tuesdays. A short break has now become imminent and necessary. Next Tuesday (3rd May) being a national holiday on account of Eid-Ul-Fitr and the Semester examinations being scheduled to start later this week and to continue almost for the rest of the month of May, the Centenary Celebration Committee has decided to put a pause to the Centenary Lecture Series. Thus, there shall be no Centenary Lecture during the next few weeks. The Centenary Lecture Series will resume on 31st May. We shall update you with further details in due time.

The Centenary Lecture Series (CLS) has drawn considerable attention and many individuals from within and outside the IIEST/BESU communities are joining the weekly Centenary Lectures. We continue to hold the CLS lectures on Tuesdays (at 5.30 PM IST). In case of any change in day and timing of lecture, the same would be intimated through the lecture-specific notifications on the "Centenary Lecture Series" tab of the centenary website. Recordings of the lectures are also being made available subsequently through YouTube channel for those who miss to attend the live sessions. 

 

The Fourth Centenary Lecture is scheduled on coming Tuesday, 18th January, 2022 (5.30 PM IST), when Prof Kamal Sarkar, an '68 alumnus of the department and currently associated with University of Texas, Rio Grande Valley, will deliberate on "A Tourist Guide to Nanoworld". The session will be chaired by Dr Biman Ghosh, a '81 alumnus of B E College (Metallurgy), who earned his PhD from Michigan State University.

 

All are welcome. Students and young researchers dealing with materials science, nanomaterials and nanotechnology are encouraged in particular to join and interact with the speaker.

Centenary Celebration: Message from The Chair

The Centenary Celebration was declared open in an online Inaugural Session held yesterday, 28th Dec 2021, that was graced by the presence of the invited dignitaries, members of alumni of the department, present and former members of faculty of IIEST Shibpur, students and guests.

 

We also had the First Centenary Lecture of the Centenary Lecture Series (CLS) delivered by Professor Amitava Ghosh ('62 alumnus of the department). We, at IIEST, are indebted to Professor Ghosh in many ways than this one.

 

Both the sessions went off well amidst excitement and zeal, creating a renewed and stronger connection between the present insiders of the department and the formers. This, I'm sure, will also have a catalytic effect in successfully organizing and executing the various events that are on the planner for the Centenary Celebration.

 

The Second CLS Lecture would be delivered by Prof Achyut Ghosh, alumnus of '61 batch (i.e., 60 years, counting backward from 2021). But as ever-young as he is, age could not make any dent into his enthusiasm when it comes to speaking about engineering, particularly while speaking to youngsters. On behalf of the Centenary Celebration Committee, I invite one and all to hear this young old alumnus speak about a topic that he loves to talk about: "How To Be An Engineer"; next week on 4th Jan (Tuesday), tentatively at 5.30 PM. More information about the speaker and the online meeting to follow shortly. 

 

Watch this space for more updates on Centenary Lecture Series, as we have the next few speakers also confirming their dates and topics of lecture progressively.

 

Thank you very much.
