Expert Lecture by Dr. A. K. Das, the head of R & D and Process Development at Reliance Ind Ltd.

On 12th of January, 2017 on the auspicious occasion of Swami Vivekanada’s 155th birth anniversary, the department of Chemical Engineering welcomed Dr. Asit K. Das, the head of refining R & D and Process Development at Reliance Industries Limited, Jamnagar. He has 31 years of research experience, has developed several processes and commercialized them. He holds more than 60 national/ international patents and more than 70 publications including 5 book chapters.

Dr. Asit Das is a staunch follower of Swami Vivekananda and hence, being a research person and a chemical engineer himself, he chose to speak on a spiritual yet very essential subject for the current generation: “Enhancing Individual’s Efficiency: A Comprehensive Model”.

The programme was hosted by Mr. Abhinav Gupta, lecturer at the Chemical Department. The head of the Chemical department and Associate Professor, Dr. Piyush B. Vanzara welcomed Das sir with a bouquet and a momento.

Dr. A. K. Das began the programme by stating that his lecture was based on Swami Vivekananda’s teachings and his own life experiences. He presented various spiritual models followed by interesting videos. The students of pre- final and final year from various departments besides chemical department as well as all the faculty members thoroughly enjoyed the session. This was the second time Das Sir had graced our institute with his valuable presence.
