Prof Swagat Kumar Behera, a faculty staff from LIT Bhubaneshwar, was the guest lecturer for the two-day event. After the completion of the session, team Monday Morning got an opportunity to gain an insight about the session and the demand for such soft-skills in the industrial sectors on speaking to Prof Swagat Behera.
MM: What has motivated you to teach the students about designing software and developing soft skills for professional needs?
SKB: Being a graduate from the branch of Mechanical Engineering I’ve always been keen to know more about simulating software as they cater to the needs of almost every engineering discipline nowadays. So I have had the passion back from the days of my Engineering to take this knowledge further and apply it to the professional life as well. Therefore, I teach software like Catia, MATLAB, AUTOCAD, Ansys etc.
MM: According to you what is the importance of simulation software for today’s generation?
SKB: In this era of drastic technological advancements there have been great leaps in the use of animations and designs. Especially when the design industries in India are flourishing day by day, it is needless to say what importance does simulating software hold in the professional career of engineering students. Therefore, to be a competent designer in the future, one needs to be thorough with such software.
Team MM wishes all the luck to Axiom club of NITR in their future plan of conducting such brilliant sessions that can help aspirants get a practical insight into such topics in demand.
