10 Most Significant Technology Trends to Look Forward to in 2015

1) The mounting popularity of Apple Pay will cause a wider reception of mobile payment systems – a technology segment that does away with the need for physical cash by allowing you to make payments with your Smartphone. Also called as digital wallets or e-Wallets, mobile payment systems allow you to make in-store and online payments as well as money transfers by downloading an app onto your phone and linking the service or app account to a bank account or credit/debit card. Popular mobile payment systems, other than Apple Pay include Google Wallet, PayPal, Level-Up and Square Wallet.

2) On-demand radio and TV apps are dime a dozen. But in 2014, we saw the rise of other on-demand apps that proved real life savers by giving you an urgent ride back home and meals delivered in no time. While this year saw a flood of radio cabs and food delivery apps catering to your needs, not to mention the rich and the lazy, you can expect on-demand services to expand into other segments, too, including on-demand beauty services, hotel reservations and even emergency health services.

3) Beacon technology uses Bluetooth to sense the location of a device and work with apps to carry out certain functions. In the coming year, we may see several applications making use of this technology. For example, McDonald’s is currently testing beacons that will deliver coupon offers, alerts, employment opportunities and customer surveys right as customers enter its stores. Microsoft’s 3D SoundScape headset relies on Wi-Fi and Bluetooth beacons placed in strategic intervals, to help the blind travel independently on roads and public transport.

4) Messaging app Line recently launched Line Pay to allow users to transfer money and purchase items directly from the app. The service will also let users pay for goods when offline. Payments via social apps are quite common in China and Korea, where WeChat and Kakao Talk are dominant players. Globally, mobile payments through social apps are an emerging trend and we’ve already seen some early adopters including Snapchat. Facebook and Twitter are also working on in-app payment services on their respective platforms.

5) Media streaming is picking up at an exceptional pace, but with a majority of activity being carried out on Smartphone there’s a pressing need for quick load times in videos, games and other media without compromising too much on the quality. This need can be fulfilled WebRTC, a free browser-based technology that can help in providing seamless video and audio services. In addition to videos, WebRTC allows lag-free and faster loading of games and music, without gobbling too much of the network’s bandwidth. WebRTC is currently powering Google Hangouts and Amazon’s Mayday services.

6) Thanks to the popularity of self-destructing photo and video app, Snapchat, many have joined the ephemerality band wagon and we expect this trend to grow. Earlier this year, Facebook offered to buy Snapchat for over $3 billion. On being turned down, the social-networking giant introduced a similar service called Slingshot. Facebook-owned Instagram launched Bolt, which is currently available in limited countries. Wickr and frankly, on the other hand, are self-destructing messaging apps.

7) With the Apple Watch set to release in 2015, this is definitely going to be one of the most watched trends for the upcoming year. Sure the Apple Watch’s square design hasn’t appealed to a lot of hardcore fans and yes there are questions about whether the battery life of this smart wearable from Apple will be up to the mark, but that hasn’t stopped it from being one of the most awaited devices.

8) 3D printing which allows users “to print three dimensional solid objects from a digital file” is a trend that will only bigger from 2015 onwards. Q3 of 2014 saw around 33000 such printers getting shipped which is a 4% increase, report Canalys. This year we saw talk of 3D printers being used to potentially create personalized makeup and how legs from a 3D printer helped one dog called Derby run for the first time. So yes the technology holds extreme consumer potential.

9) From Google’s I/O conference to the Apple WWDC 2014, the smart home concept was definitely the most talked about this year, and it’s likely that we will more on these two fronts from both Apple and Google. Apple introduced Home Kit during its annual developers conference this year and essentially the app will allow users to connect their iPhone/iPad and control things like garage doors, lights, security cameras, even thermostats and switches. Users can just control these through Siri.

10) This basically allows centralized data storage and computers can access this data. Clouds can be classified as public, private or hybrid. Essentially cloud computing allows you to store data online and access it whenever you need it. According to IDC, “Total cloud infrastructure revenue for the quarter grew 16% year over year to $6.5 billion. Public cloud infrastructure accounted for nearly half of total cloud infrastructure revenue and is growing faster at 18% compared to one year ago.”

Wipro Plans Open Source Team of 10,000

The use of open technologies premeditates the days of Facebook and Cloud Computing. When the concept of internet was first discussed in the nerdy corridors of MIT, the objective was to create computing structure that could encourage the use of shared resources and knowledge without any limitations. Working on these lines, one of the biggest tech-giants of India, Wipro, is now investing heavily in open source technologies. Planning to scale up more than 10,000 people in this space, this move of Wipro is a strong evidence of the reduction in dependency on expensive proprietary software programs. Wipro believes that this call could create an opportunity to reduce IT deployment costs significantly.

TK Kurien, CEO of Wipro believes that a complete data centre stack can be built with open source at a cost that is half of the cost utilized in traditional methods. He was quoted saying, “We believe this has the potential for really disintermediation the IT expenditure incurred in the past. We have built a practice in infrastructure and applications around open source and see quite a few deployments happening.”

Andrew Aitken, who previously founded the successful consulting firm, Olliance Consulting group, was recently hired by Wipro to head the department of global open source practice.

With an aim to provide consulting services, roadmap development, integration, legacy migration, risk mitigation, and support, the company is also going to focus on open source platforms and solutions like Alfresco, Drupal, BonitaSoft, and Magneto. On the other hand, world renowned programs like Hadoop, MySQL, and PostgreSQL are being considered for database enhancement.

Open source was critical to the success of the internet where original source code was made freely available to be modified. Aitken said customers are demanding support for their open source initiatives and that those initiatives fall into two categories. "One is legacy migration from traditional proprietary software to open source. The other is more innovative solutions like cloud computing and big data analytics. With any technology shift, there could be upfront costs associated. But the more you use open source, the clearer the financial benefits become," he said.

Dave Gardner, founder of US-based Gardner & Associates Consulting, said clients were drawn to open source technologies as they were tired of being held hostage by proprietary software vendors when they offer no or limited advantage over their open source equivalent technologies.

Wipro is setting up innovation labs and leveraging on its existing ones to showcase open source solutions at scale. "We are making investments to build a world class advisory team and then into consulting and architecture and getting into our complete ecosystem within Wipro and positioning that as integrated offerings to our end customers," said Krishnakumar N Menon, VP of business application solutions & open source initiative in Wipro.

Keeping up with the trends in the emerging IT markets of the world, Chandigarh University has been consistent in harnessing the power of modern technologies. In collaboration with Wipro, Chandigarh University has enhanced its strong industry patronage with a unique research facility, one of its kinds in entire Northern India to facilitate work on sophisticated projects leading to applications and products in the area of automation, robotics, automobiles, computers, and much more. The persistent approach of exposing its students to contemporary working procedures puts Chandigarh University on the road of technological development where talent is going to embrace opportunities.

Petroleum Engineers: The pioneers of Modern Industry

About Petroleum Engineering Course

Petroleum Engineering - Chandigarh University

Petroleum refers to crude oil and petroleum engineering is the set of activities related to the production and processing of various products such as gasoline, diesel, heating oil from crude oil. Petroleum engineers work with geologists to understand the geologic formation and properties of the rock containing the oil reservoir, determine the drilling methods to be used and monitor drilling and production operations. They design equipment and processes to achieve the maximum profitable recovery of oil and gas. Petroleum engineers rely heavily on computer models to simulate reservoir performance using different recovery techniques. Petroleum engineering requires a good knowledge of many other related disciplines, such as geophysics, petroleum geology, formation evaluation (well logging), drilling, economics, reservoir simulation, reservoir engineering, well engineering, artificial lift systems, completions and oil and gas facilities engineering. Typically, a petroleum engineering graduate is given the job to discover natural sources of oil and examine the same. Similarly, developing the latest machines and equipments which can be used in the extraction and processing of oil is part of the job of a petroleum engineer.

Job Profile

The career in Petroleum Engineering is divided into two parts.

Upstream Sector

The upstream sector consists of activities like exploration, production and exploitation of oil and natural gases. After gaining a qualification in petroleum engineering, the engineers work in the exploration and production activities of petroleum and other related products. Using the latest drilling technology and geophysics for the exploration of oil reservoirs, they exploit the same for maximum output.

Downstream Sector

The downstream sector consist activities such as the refining, marketing and distributing of petroleum products. Production is not the only work carried out in a petroleum company and the job of petroleum engineer does not get over as the oil is produced, rather, it starts at this stage. Refining process is crucial for an oil product as then only it can be used. Marketing and distributing department may require a petroleum engineer to have some management degree.

Future Prospects

10 Ways to Beat Exam Stress

As university students, having heaps of work is the norm - especially at this time of year with exams right around the corner. But there are ways to take control and prevent ourselves from getting stressed out.

10 Ways to Beat Exam Stress

It’s normal to be nervous about exams, but if you let stress get the better of you, it can actually cloud your mind and stop you from doing your best. Becoming overly stressed or anxious can affect your memory, interfere with your sleeping patterns, mess with your appetite and negatively influence your health. Use these 10 tips and tricks to manage your stress so that it doesn’t get out of hand as exams draw near:

Be positive
If you’ve worked hard throughout the year and done your best to prepare, there’s no need to worry excessively. It’s not like stressing is going to help you to perform better in the exam. When you catch yourself thinking negative thoughts, actively interrupt yourself with positive ones, like “I’ve done this before and I can do it again,” or “life will be worth living regardless of this exam”.

Keep things in perspective
 In 10 years time, you probably won’t even remember this exam. Think about all the good things in your life, whether it’s your family and friends or how much you’ve already achieved, and remind yourself that this exam will soon be over.

Understand that you are not perfect
Of course you want to get top marks, but be realistic. Remember that you can only do your best and that we all have areas where we struggle.

Be proactive
If you don’t understand a section of the work, take steps to change that. Find a tutor, ask your teacher or lecturer for help, or get a friend who understands the work very well to help you with it.

Do things that de-stress you
 Listen to upbeat music, go for a walk, enjoy a 15-minute power nap or take a little time out to spend with your friends.

Take deep breaths
 Seriously. Panic is often triggered by hyperventilation, abnormally fast breathing that can also make you dizzy. Breathing deeply on purpose is an effective way of physically telling your body to relax. It’s been scientifically proven that breathing deeply positively affects the heart, the brain, digestion and the immune system.

Plan your study time properly
 If you leave your studying too late, you’re setting yourself up to stress. Plan your study sessions ahead of time and keep them to about 50 minutes long, then take a five or 10 minute break. Your brain can’t manage peak concentration for hours on end without a short break to rest and recover.

Eat healthily and exercise
 Yes, you’ve heard it before. Because it’s true! Taking care of your body is the best way to help your brain function well. Steer clear of too much caffeine. Get active, even when you don’t feel like it. It honestly boosts your energy and helps you to focus better, even if it’s just 10 minutes of dancing to your favourite music in your room.

Get enough sleep
 This is especially important the night before an exam. You may think that staying up and cramming is the best option, but you are more likely to remember what you’ve studied and to do well in your exam if you are refreshed and awake after a good night’s sleep.

Talk to someone
If you are really struggling with stress or feeling depressed, the worst thing you can do is keep it all bottled up inside of you. Speak to someone you can trust, whether it’s a family member or a school or campus counsellor.

Eight Definitive Tips to Crack a Campus Interview

Tips to Crack the Campus Interview

1. Dress Your Best

Many organizations are dropping the formal code but it is still recommended that you dress up for an interview. A young man should wear a tie, and women should wear a skirt or matching suit with pants and a tailored blouse. If you really feel that the formal look is not for you, go for semi casuals at the very least.

2. Study the Organization

Find out important facts and anecdotal details about the organization you are researching. It is expected that you know something about a company before you walk in their door.

3. Speak Articulately

Practice with a friend when you are preparing for an interview. Answer questions briefly and keep the discussions to the point. Try not to talk too much or fly off on tangents that may get you into trouble, by revealing undesirable facts.

4. Plan for Typical Questions

Many interviewers use standard interview texts to develop a list of questions. They include things like, where you see yourself in five years and what did you want to be when you were a child or what makes you the best candidate for this job. Be prepared for questions like these. The other common approach is to ask you to tell the interviewer about yourself. You need to memorize a brief sales pitch encompassing your education and experience.

5. Know Yourself

When you have a chance to practice with a friend, be sure to ask her to give you constructive feedback. Listen and learn. Most people know if they stutter, stammer or repeat themselves. Practice and insight from others will help you avoid these pitfalls. If you become momentarily stumped by a question, take a deep breath, smile and ask for a moment to think. If you still cannot find the answer in your head, go back to it later. And it is okay to say you don’t know the answer. Honesty will earn you a few points.

6. The Almighty Dos

Be on time. Ensure that you are clean and groomed – hair, nails, make up, shoes – and that your clothes are laundered and pressed. Please avoid the grunge look.

7. The Definitive Don’ts

Don’t chew gum or put anything in your mouth. If you are extremely nervous, you can accept water if offered during the interview, but nothing else. Avoid freaky and funky dressing or showing too much skin or using any profanity during the interview.

8. Follow-Up after the Interview
Sending a “thank you” letter to each of the people you meet with is by far the best way to reinforce a good interview or elevate you above those with similar backgrounds who did not send a note.
