Faculty Development Programme

IIIM organized a two day faculty development programme under the Spoken Tutorial Project of IIT Bombay on “Libre Office Suite Calc Software” and “Scilab Software” for faculties belonging to Department of Management & Department of Computer Sciences on July 11-12, 2017.
The FDP witnessed 22 participants.

The participants were able to make use of Libre office Calc software that is used for conducting basic data manipulations, business & research data analysis and data mining operations etc.

The participants also gained knowledge of the Scilab software, used for numerical mathematics and scientific visualization. The participants learned to perform interactive calculations, automation of computations through programming, basic operations on matrices through built-in functions and to plot 2D and 3D graphs helping in visualizing the data we work with.

The FDP was supportive for understanding the applicability of these softwares in academia and research. The feedback of the participants on the content delivery and conduct of Hands-on was excellent.
