Dr.T.Thyagarajan gave the Presidential Address,giving us his insight about IEA and explaining the beauty of IEA, being that the work load is equally shared by the students of the department in the regard of organisation of various events.He also mentioned about “HEECA-Health Energy Environment Cleanliness Agriculture” which must be the main focus for the next generation. DR.D.Vasanthi, Treasurer, enhanced our knowledge about our chief guest who had completed his B.E Electronics And Instrumentation Engineering in Annamalai University.(Batch 1994-1998)
The chief guest gave his Inaugural Address. He shared that he had no idea about the department as most of the college students do but highlighted that Instrumentation is a multidisciplinary course of both Hardware and Software. He also added that he totally agrees upon “HEECA”.




The most important point to be noted was that every company needs Instrumentation Engineers,but only “one”, so it is important to have the basic knowledge about every company but specialise in ONE! The diverse fields in Instrumentation were also added by him. The chief guest was presented with a memento as a token of appreciation! And Mr.S.Manoj,Secretary, IEA delivered the vote of thanks. The function ended well with the National Anthem. And for those of you who might think Instrumentation had no job opportunities or the least suggested course the chief guest address was Inspiring!
