Training programmes orchestrated

The department of biotechnology and medical engineering has recently undertaken two training programmes: 

Training on laser scanning confocal microscope

Hands on training programme on hyper mesh

The training programme on laser scanning confocal microscope was inaugurated by our esteemed director Prof. Sunil Kumar Sarangi on 5th August 2014 at 10 A.M. The training programme was organised in collaboration with Leica – Microsystems (By Madhukar Chaudhury and Anupam Banerjee) during 5th August to 9th August 2014 under Center of Excellence (COE) in Orthopaedic Tissue Engineering and Rehabilitation under TEQIP-II. The participants comprised of 21 PhD scholars, 2 technical assistants, 2 post-doctoral fellows and 6 faculty members.

The training programme included the following:

Principles of confocal Microscope

Multi color and multi point imaging

Imaging of slide-mounted specimens and single or multi-well culture dishes

Spectral un-mixing of closely situated dyes

Co-localization studies

XYZ and XYZT imaging

Training on Image Processing Software and analysis of data

Hands on training programme on hyper mesh was conducted on 12th August to 13th August 2014 in the department. Hyper Mesh is a high-performance finite element pre-processor that provides a highly interactive and visual environment to analyse product design performance. With the broadest set of direct interfaces to commercial CAD and CAE systems, Hyper Mesh provides a proven, consistent analysis platform for the entire enterprise.With a focus on engineering productivity, Hyper Mesh is the user-preferred environment for:

 • Solid Geometry Modelling

 • Shell Meshing

 • Model Morphing

 • Detailed Model Setup  • Surface Geometry Modelling

  • Solid Mesh Generation

  • Automatic mid-surface generation

  • Batch Meshing

Around 19 students from various departments including ME, BM, CH, MM and ID participated in the aforementioned training programme.

The training programmes were a great success and team MM hopes that the department will continue to rise and blossom in the coming years.
