The Institution of Engineers (India)

The Institution of Engineers (India), IEI, is the largest multi-disciplinary professional body that encompasses 15 engineering disciplines and gives engineers a global platform from which professional interest is shared. IEI has membership strength of nearly 0.8 million. It was established in 1920, with its headquarters at Kolkata.  IEI was incorporated by Royal Charter and remains the only professional body in India to be accorded this honour. IEI has served the engineering fraternity for over nine decades. In this period of time it has been inextricably linked with the history of modern – day engineering.

 It provides a vast array of technical, professional and supporting devices to the government, Industries academia and the engineering fraternity, operating from over 120 centers located across the country. The institution has established R&D centers at various locations in the country and also provides grant – in – aid to its members to conduct research and development on engineering & technology. IEI offers a specially designed engineering course for both students and in service professionals. Successful completion of section A & B examinations conducted by IEI is officially recognized as equivalent to a degree in appropriate field of engineering by Ministry of Human Resources Development, Govt. of India. Every year as many as 90000 candidates appear for these exams. This is the only largest platform which connects Engineers in India.

Institution of Engineers (India) – Puducherry State Centre  

The Puducherry State Centre, a wing of IEI for its regional service, functioning at Puducherry  Township, was inaugurated in the year 2010.   The centre having a good membership strength and organizing Technical lectures, Seminars, and Workshops towards fulfilling the aim of propagating technical knowledge. This Centre stood as fore- front on the leading  Engineering dictator of local engineering issues and challenges through Engineering Institutes local Students’ Chapters . The Centre has conducted many National Seminars & Conferences of various divisions of IEI. The Centre in joint collaboration with Pondicherry Engineering College (PEC) , Puducherry is proposed to host (as hold by this proposal) all India Seminar on the theme Carbon Sequestration & Climate Change Mitigation, on 26 th & 27 th of October 2017  under the aegis of Environmental Engineering Division of IE(I) and PEC, Puducherry, India.

Pondicherry Engineering College (PEC) , Puducherry

Pondicherry Engineering College (PEC)   was established in the year 1984 under the seventh Five Year Plan with liberal seed grant from MHRD, Government of India. The institution is fully funded by the Government of Puducherry. It is autonomous for both administrative and academic purposes. The sprawling 210 acres beautiful campus of the institute equipped with the best of breed infrastructure provides an excellent environment to the students and scholars towards pursuing their academic education and research. The institute offers eight undergraduate, eleven post graduate and Ph.D programmes in the major disciplines of engineering and technology. Every year the college admits 450 students in UG programmes; 173 in PG programmes; 30 in MCA programme and 10 in M.Sc. and M.Phil. Material Science programmes. Currently, around 400 scholars are pursuing Ph.D. in various disciplines in the campus.

Objective of the Conference

The All India Seminar aims at constructive deliberations on the need of Carbon sequestration and climate change mitigation  for a greener and newer steward roles and implementation for a Sustainable industrial growth & agriculture. This gathering aims at participation of maximum members of IEI, Industry, Academia to establish liaison between IEI, its members and policy makers. The Conference  will pave way for connecting the professionals, researches and students community to interact and suggest means for handling the challenges in the field of development of clean and green atmosphere & mitigation of Climate change  and is scheduled on  at PEC, 26 th & 27 th of October 2017  Puducherry.

Theme of the Seminar

There is a growing awareness all over the world about the adverse impact of greenhouse gas emission and the consequent climate change. At the dawn of third millennium, greenhouse gases are widely accepted by international scientific community as one of the potential threats to the existence of human kind coupled with extinction of other flora and fauna. The greenhouse gases, CO2 plays a lead role as it contributes to 50% of the total greenhouse effect  Though fundamental to life on earth, concentration of atmospheric CO2 has increased from a preindustrial level of 280 ppm to 390 ppm and is increasing at a rate of 1.5 μL yr-1 giving rise to an alarming situation. However, the challenges of climate change can be effectively overcome by the carbon sequestration which this proposed conference is reinforcing with to sustain for a long renewable resources for re-discovering sustainable newer Engineering solutions.   With this in mind the theme of the Seminar is coined  as “Carbon Sequestration & Climate Change Mitigation”.
