The MCA Dept organised Chip-to-Net 5.1, a two-day fully hands-on workshop for students of neighbouring arts and science colleges during 30 – 31 january 2020. This is the fifth year in which the Dept has been organising such workshops. The first edition of Chip-to-Net was conducted in 2015. The workshop was conducted without a formal inaugural ceremony. Instead, the programme was started with a declaration by two participants that the progammes be started!

The session concluded with the announcement of a Website Creation Contest.In the afternoon session, Mr Arun P R (TI, EEE Dept) unraveled the mysteries of ethical hacking which left the participants gasping for breath for sometime. In the forenoon of the second day, Mr Ramesh C R (AP, ECE Dept) very effectively and enjoyably presented the basics of Robotics Process Automation with hands on training. In the afternoon session, Mr Arun Xavier (AP, EEE Dept) and Mr Deepak V Dev (AP, EEE Dept) organised a quick and fully hands-on, and highly interactive, first introduction to IoT with Arduino, breadboards and LED bulbs.
