The Nanoelectronics Premier League – 2017

The Grand Finale of the Nanoelectronics Premier League was held on 29th April 2017 in the Auditorium.

Team 14 working on their challenge question - Can Nanobots be used for interconnecting Nano-Computers with Human Mind? and Team 20 with their challenge question - Can nanotubes be used in place of copper cables for reducing transmission line losses as they have lower resistance in comparison with copper cables?were pitted against each other and gave brilliant performances.

Team 20 was lead by Rahul Poddar who gave an amazing performance with crisp and confident responses to a rapid fire round of questions. Their Buddy Mentor and Learning Mentor were Shiv Bajpai and Prof. Amritesh Kumar respectively. Team 14 was ably lead by Siddharth Bisht who floored the house with his brilliant pitch on Nanobots. Their Buddy Mentor and Learning Mentor were Shivam Shandil and Prof. Meera Datta respectively. At the end of a keenly fought match Team 14 won the first Nanoelectronics Premier League by razor-thin margin. Congratulations to Siddharth Bisht and team!

About Nanoelectronics Premier League

NU is continuously engaged in innovations in teaching-learning methodologies. 1st year engineering students to Ph. D research scholars are exploring and discovering new ways to make learning not only exciting but also valid for the future.

Future technologies are evolving continuously and causing disruption in all spheres of human life. The shelf-life of curricula is decreasing rapidly. Hence new ways of devising learning to handle future technologies becomes imperative.

Why Nanotechnology?

Nanotechnology is one of the many disrupting technologies. Demanding inter-disciplinary knowledge of foundational subjects such as Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Electronics, Materials Science, it is changing the way we do things be it healthcare, automation, food production or pharmaceuticals.

So we asked ourselves – “What does it take to introduce Nanotechnology which is normally taught at the Masters and Doctoral levels in the 1st year of engineering?” The premise being that doing so should make students future ready. And thus began the challenge led by NU’s mentor professor, Dr. Vijay Mandke.

Our third year engineering students doing their Learning Technologies Project course and doctoral students began to work together to conceive a unique first of its kind teaching-learning experiment that brought nanotechnology into classrooms of 1st year B.Tech in a project mode.

So what is Nanoelectronics Premier League?

Conceived by Prof. Mandke in NU’s Educational Technology Innovation Lab (ETIC) and driven by Jharna, Nirali and Rajat doing their Learning Technologies Project, 220 students from 1st Year ECE, CSE and BT streams undertaking different courses – Physics, Chemistry, Electronics – will be working together on industry-relevant nanoelectronics projects such as Nanotubes for bullet-proof jackets, nanosensors for smart homes, etc. which will ensure that by the time they are in their final year, they are already ready for the industry and research of nanotechnology and nanoelectronics. Each member in the team of 11 will perform carefully delineated roles such as Research, Industry Connect, Employability assessment, Identification of Customer benefit and Value Stream, Digital Publishing, Project Management, etc. based on their interests.

To assess the projects, the Premier League format was used in contrast to the normal presentation/demo formats. Named the ‘Nano-Electronics Premier League - 2017, the 220 students divide themselves into teams of 11 along the lines of cricket premier leagues.

The league sawthe 20 teams contesting. The teams were mentored by Jharna & team who call themselves Buddy mentors and 4 Ph.D scholars who act as Learning Mentors. Each team played against the other using timed presentations and rapid-fire quizzes with time-outs to strategize. The team that reaches the final round was declared winner of the Nanoelectronics Premier League 2017.

What are we expecting out of this research breakthrough?

To sum up, what are the key outcomes of this leap-into-the-future research breakthrough in teaching-learning methods?

  • The 220 students will produce mini research papers that will go into an ejournal, in the process gaining firsthand experience in writing and publishing research papers.
  • Buddy mentors, through their experience of managing large teams, will learn how to identify industry needs, manage teams, managing work pressures, applying theoretical knowledge to solve industry problems thus becoming expert learning technologists themselves as they identify technologies and processes for this.
  • The 220 students will also develop individual digital portfolios showcasing their research capability through the work done thus charting out their path to the world of work or research in the first year itself instead of waiting for the final year.
  • The roles performed will also give them an insight into the future paths they might want to explore based on their innate strengths.
