Online Seminar Program at IIT(ISM)
Dr. Ganesh Thakur (PE’70) conducted a successful Zoom seminar on the topic of waterflooding and well management on August 15, 2020. It was attended by 100+ students and faculty of IIT (ISM). The seminar was about one hour in length followed by about an hour of Q & A. Based on the success of this seminar ISMAANA embarked on an ongoing program of online seminars on topics of high interest. A small team consisting of experts from ISMAANA and IIT (ISM) department heads is formed. Dr. Thakur has kindly agreed to lead this team consisting of following members.
- Dr. Ganesh Thakur – Chairman emeritus ISMAANA – Lead
- Dr. Jitendra Kikani – Board member ISMAANA
- Prof Dheeraj Kumar – Dean International Relations IIT (ISM)
- Prof. R.M. Bhattacharjee – HOD Mining Engineering IIT (ISM)
- Prof Ajay Mandal – HOD Petroleum Engineering IIT (ISM)
- Prof Shalivahan – HOD Applied Geophysics IIT (ISM)
The team had a very productive Zoom VC meeting on December 1 2020 with Dheeraj Kumar and the three department heads of PE, Geophysics and Mining. Dheeraj will be sending about 15 topics of high interest for online seminars, and we hope to start various sessions beginning January 2021.
We wish the team great success in this valuable interchange of intellectual ideas and resources.
