Vmoksha organized a 2-day Hands-on IoT Bootcamp for University Professors and Lecturers at Vellore Institute of Technology, Tamil Nadu.
VIT University was founded in 1984 with the aim of providing quality higher education on par with international standards. It currently offers 62 degree programs to over 29,000 students in its 2 campuses at Vellore and Chennai. They are among the Top Universities in the country with the quality of their Teaching, Learning, and Research.
Dr. Rajashekara Babu, the Program Manager of SCOPE (School of Computing Science and Engineering), VIT has attended the 2-day Vmoksha IoT Bootcamp in January at our Bangalore office. He admired the splendid training program we provide with the requisite hardware and software platform during the hands-on sessions. He had also analyzed other IoT Training institutes and ascertained that Vmoksha IoT Bootcamp is the best among the top IoT training institutes with the high-grade infrastructure and lab facility. He then approached us back to provide IoT training to the other Professors and Lectures of the VIT University.
A group of 7 members from the Vmoksha’s IoT team has reported at VIT campus on the previous day of the bootcamp and arranged all the infra setup for the next two days. On the first day, Dr. Arun Kumar, the Dean of SCOPE, initiated the bootcamp delivering few words on IoT and the importance of the bootcamp. Dr. Rajashekara Babu shared the experience of his last visit to Vmoksha Bangalore Office.
The bootcamp is tailored to the needs of VITians, focusing on the hands-on sessions on industry standard IoT product prototype hardware board ‘LinkIt Smart’ and IoT Software platform, AWS IoT. By the end of the program, the participants implemented an End-to-End, Smart City IoT use case.
There were about 20+ attendees for the session, and many of them have shown a keen interest in knowing Vmoksha real-time projects. Even though the VIT team was quite new to IoT and hardware practice, they have actively taken part during the hands-on sessions.
Some of the major sessions include the discussion of the below topics along with hands-on
Vmoksha also provided a custom-designed IoT starter kit to the participants that include all necessary components to kick start the IoT journey. They admired our IoT hardware kit and aspired to setup an IoT lab for their college students. The team was happy with the bootcamp sessions and referred us to the School of Electronics Engineering (SENSE), VIT.
We would like to express our appreciation and sincere thanks to VIT team for their strong support and hospitality during the visit.
