ESDM Workshop, 2013
Students of Department of Computer Application and Electronics and Communication Engineering actively participated for a workshop, ESDM’13 in the Institute’s premises, hosted by Department. Dept. of Computer Application, along with the guest speakers Prof. (Dr.) Debesh Das of Jadavpur University, Prof. (Dr.) Susanta Sen of University of Calcutta and Sri. Subimal Kundu CSI Fellow. The students had a hands-on training in G. P. Tronics in their own venue.
The Coordinator: Ms. Inadyuti Dutt

TCS, Pragati, 2013
The students selected for “Pragati” were working on the OAP project and were mentored by Mr. Nikhil Govind, Module Lead, OAP (Online Assessment Platform), TCS Mumbai. Mr. Govind had been a really helpful trainer giving the students a lot of insights into a real life project and in spite of his busy schedule he rigorously mentored them with structured training sessions and helped them learn with follow-up assignments.
The Cordinator: Dr. Ananya Kanjilal

TCS, Pragati, 2014
Based on the performance of the students in Pragati 2013,  TCS selected only two institutes of India for 2nd phase of Pragati- BPPIMT is one of them. 8 students from CSE, IT and MCA Dept. have been selected and they have started working on 4 projects in the domains of operating system and Java.

Project 1: SOE Independent Candidate Console
This project is aimed to reduce human intervention and possibilities of unfair means in online examination. Anisha Bazaz and Bhavna Somani is developing an operating system, “Independent candidate console (ICC)”. This independent console would mask the underlying operating system of the candidate machines. ICC consists of only a web browser which would ensure security of the system. This will be available on LAN and hence can be installed in various machines.

Project 2: Linux Launcher
This project is to develop a launcher to conduct assessment on Linux OS to ensure restricted access. The launcher is the gateway which establishes a connection with the server. Titas Dutta and Kingshuk Basak are developing the launcher which will close all running applications during launch and at an interval of 5 mins. Python is used for creating the application. TKinter package of Python is used to make the GUI and various shell commands are integrated with the application.

Project 3: iON Identification Event Framework
Priyanka Sinha Roy and Archana Jhunjhunwala are developing a framework for secured Biometric student identification in Online Examination. This project is aimed to enhance the existing ARC module, developed by BPPIMT students the previous year (which was used this year during AIIMS entrance examination) by Biometric comparison of image and fingerprint of a particular candidate and record date, time, response time and various other aspects during login period.

Project 4: QP Creating from Docs
Khyati Tejuria and Parminder Singh are developing a system to parse a word document and then populate different beans of the different question types (currently questions are directly entered in excel and online questions are generated from there). This system will be  able to handle various types of questions, such as: MCQ, MSQ, SA (Short answer), Comprehension, LAQ, etc.


CTS, CIO’s Challenge Internship Program, 2014
Cognizant Technology Solutions collaborated with the institute to furnish some of their in house projects by the selected students of final year. In 2014, Titas Datta(CSE), Khyati Tejura(CSE) and Rajit Basu(IT) did a project titled “Societal App” which that maintain all information about the social  activities of the organization and allows associated to join the activities to contribute to the cause or do a donation.

The mentor : Dr. Jayeeta Chanda
To kickstart the project, the faculty coordinator and the participating students attended the Bootcamp held in the  CTS Infospace office where students were exposed to the different aspects of project management through different games and models. It was a learning experiance for the students and the teacher alike.

CTS, CIO’s Challenge Internship Program, 2015
CTS has collaborated with the institute for the second time in 2015 through CIO’s Challenge Internship Program where three students namely Rohan Das, Lalima Das and Aritra Chatterjee of CSE has participated. They have worked on a project titled “Recommendation System”. Based on the history of behavior of users, they have developed a predictable model/algorithm that will predict/recommend similar kind of products or tools to other users who might show similar behaviors like that of other users or customers.   
The mentor: Mr. Amlan Roy Choudhury.

This time also BootCamp was organized on 29.02.2016 and 01.03.2016 at the CTS Infospace Office which was attended by participating students and the Mentors.
