App for managing class schedules by VITians
VIT has been following the FFCS mode of registration at their college. FFCS system allows students to register for courses with the flexibility of choosing their faculty and class timings. Students get an opportunity to choose their faculty members and decide on the timings according to their wish. Thus every student's timetable is different and depends on the registration they do for every semester. This system also allows for an 'add and drop' feature where students can opt to change their professors within a week if they feel so. The system provides a chance for students to register under faculties whom they feel comfortable with.×

VIT Student's innovation can make vehicles can now turn safely
In an accident that took place in Madurai on Saturday, the reckless driver of a bus turned a corner without reducing the speed of the vehicle. The vehicle over turned and a woman lost her left hand in the accident. Many a time news items carry the intriguing line that the driver lost control of the vehicle while turning. Help is on its way to make such incidents history.
A group of B.Tech third year (Mechanical Engineering) students from VIT, Chennai campus, have come up with a simple but effective solution to prevent such accidents. The students have connected the car's steering to the brake system, which would slow down the vehicle when it turns more than a particular angle.×
Researchers study PVC-GO composites, finds them useful for battery electrodes and more
Researchers from India's VIT University combined studied a new hybrid material made from PVC and graphene-oxide (GO). They say that the GO enhances the properties of PVC and makes it useful as battery electrode material, and also for membranes and coating applications.
The researchers combined polyvinyl chloride (PVC) with graphene oxide using the colloidal blending method. The new composites were studied using several methods (including AFM, SEM, TEM and more) and it was found that the GO have been dispersed homogeneously throughout the PVC matrix, and the original research paper includes many measurements and analysis data.×

New Low Cost Capacitor Developed by Students
Researchers of the School of Electrical Engineering (SEE) of the VIT University, Vellore, have successfully developed a low-cost high-performance capacitor for future Integrated Circuits.
According to Partha S. Mallick, Dean of SEE and principal investigator of the project, the newly-developed capacitor would meet the recommendation of International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS) for the year 2018.
Other research group members, D. Kannadasan and Maryam Shojaei Baghini (IIT-Bombay), co-investigators of the project and R. Karthik, Research Fellow of SEE, have together proposed a low-cost chemical process called ‘Anodization’ to fabricate such a capacitor.
“Achieving such a high-capacitance density (6.01 fF/um2) and leakage current density (10nA/cm2) in nano size capacitors were the real challenges, and the Anodization technique has solved the problem for us,” said Dr. Karthik.
Dr. Kannadasan said that Anodization can be an attractive fabrication technique also for other nano scale active and passive components required for Integrated Circuits. The innovators have developed both the single and multilayer Metal Insulator Metal Capacitors using the Anodization process, he said.×
