A one Day Workshop on “Hands on Optsim” was organized on 23 April 2015 in collaboration with Eigen Technologies. 30 students from B.Tech (ECE) and M.Tech (ECE) took part in the workshop. Some modules on simulation techniques, Graphical user interface, use of lab-like measurement instruments and the design and simulation of optical communication systems at the signal propagation level were explained. Interface with third-party tools such as MATLAB and the Luna Optical Vector Analyzer were also explained. Students found it helpful in handling projects and training based on optical communication. The software is used by leading engineers in both academic and industrial organizations worldwide. This workshop was helpful for the students in terms of their course curriculum, projects, dissertations and their placements. Ms. Sharda Vashisth and Ms. Amanpreet Kaur helped to organize the event.
