The Power Workshop – Session II

By Sabin Pathak

DWIT is a place which is full of opportunities. It is a place where many extra activities, which are useful to students, are conducted. Recently, DWIT has started an intensive Information Technology training program called THE POWER WORKSHOP – SESSION II. This Workshop includes six different courses, namely: - Programming in Java - Photoshop & Introduction to Animation - IT & Networking - Working with Databases / MSSQL - QA (Quality Assurance) & QC (Quality Control) -  Android Programming Each course will last for a minimum of 12 hours spanning over 4 weeks. For each course there are 12 seats available. For each course, ten candidates were selected from among the students at DWIT, and the other two candidates were selected from Patan Multiple Campus and Amrit Science Campus respectively. However, there are only six students from DWIT in Android Programming. All the students at DWIT were notified about the workshop on 5th December 2014. To get the available seats they had to apply for Power Workshop of their choice via email. The interested candidates submitted their applications by 9th December 2014. Since number of applications were more than the number of seats available, examinations for respective courses were held on 18th December 2014. There were separate examinations for different courses. The results were announced on 19th December 2014. The Power Workshop has started on 20th December 2014 and will end on 10th January 2015. This seems to be very difficult for the students to manage because the pre-board examinations of Class of 2015 as well as the Class of 2016 are in progress and the Class of 2018 are having their mid-term examinations. So there have been some difficulties for students to manage their time between studies and the workshops. The surprising thing is that the students have joined the workshops with great interest. So no one seems to be overwhelmed by the pressure they are facing. During the workshops, the teaching staff will provide the students many concepts that are required while developing real world projects by disseminating practical based knowledge. There will be both discussion based activities as well as technical challenge courses over the weekend. The student must attend the entire four week session and complete their assignments and projects. These sorts of activities are very useful for the students to gain more practical based knowledge. It will help them learn many new things and explore their ideas. Thanks to DWIT for organizing such useful events and we hope that this trend will continue to grow.
