Training programme on "Big Data Analytics" for SAC-ISRO

Looking into the demand of the Big Data Analytics professionals in various sectors of industry, department of Computer Engineering proposes an executive industrial training programme on Big Data Analytics. Looking into the volume of data generated in the form of images and various other devices at ISRO it becomes mandatory to store, manage, analyse and visualize the data in an effective way. The large data have very different processing tool sets and skill requirements for their management unlike the mining of conventional data set. The industrial training programme will be conducted in six days, 6 hours per resulting into total of 36 Hrs. Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Institute of Technology, Nirma University will be conducting a one week Training Programme on Big Data Analytics for Engineers/ Scientists/ Application Practitioners of SAC, ISRO, Ahmedabad during 24th October 2016 – 30th October 2018.

BreakTheLoop
BreakTheLoop was a traditional pen paper quiz with our own unique CSI twist. The questions of
every round were interconnected, ie the answer of the previous question was necessary to
solve the subsequent question. This event tested the participants critical thinking, logic and
problem solving skills, three important skills required in every professional. The event consisted
of three rounds with five,three and two questions for the first, second and third round
respectively. Time for each round was decreased linearly, starting at twenty five minutes for the
first round, then twenty for the second and fifteen minutes for the final round.

CipherKings
CipherKings was pen and paper based event which required contestants to use their deduction
and logic to decipher text from the given information. The information provided by each question
seemed random at first, but contestants had to look for the hidden pattern and apply a
mathematical approach to solve the problem. The event consisted of two rounds.

Code.Skills()
Code.Skills() was a coding competition exclusively for first year students, it tested their problem
solving, programming and mathematical foundations. CSI aimed to strengthen these core skills
with this competition. The event consisted of three questions of varying difficulties, to be solved
in ninety minutes. Each challenge had a predetermined score. A participant’s score depended
on the number of test cases a participant’s code submission successfully passed. Passing each
test case would grant a share of the predetermined score,based on the difficulty of the test
case. If a participant submitted more than one solution per challenge, then the participant’s
score would reflect the highest score achieved. Participants are ranked by score. If two or more
participants achieve the same score, then the tie is broken by the total time taken to submit the
last solution resulting in a higher score.

theory, and mathematical computation. The event consisted of five questions of varying
difficulties, to be solved in one hundred and twenty minutes. Each challenge had a
predetermined score. A participant’s score depended on the number of test cases a participant’s
code submission successfully passed. Passing each test case would grant a share of the
predetermined score,based on the difficulty of the test case. If a participant submitted more than
one solution per challenge, then the participant’s score would reflect the highest score achieved.
