Today, acquiring English language skills has become so essential, especially for those who are looking for new jobs in reputed organizations as well as for the practising professionals. Many engineering students, even though they have adequate knowledge of their subject, are unable to express themselves well in English. Taking this into account, engineering colleges/institutes have introduced exclusive English Language Laboratories where students are drilled in the practical aspects of the English language. This compact and comprehensive book is a step-by-step practical guide to students, telling them how to prepare technical reports and how to acquire the basic communication skills—listening, speaking, reading and writing. The book deals with conversation, situational dialogues and role plays, and Group Discussions (GDs). It also gives detailed discussion about Interviews—step-by-step preparation, practical and psychological preparation, the dos and don’ts for interview—besides dealing with different kinds of interviews: telephonic, videoconferencing, and others. In addition, the text stresses the importance of researching the organization, and salary negotiations. Finally, the book shows the students how to make powerpoint presentations (PPTs), the structure of presentation and using audio visuals. This activity based, skill-oriented, learner centred book is designed according to the WBUT syllabus on Technical Report Writing and Language Laboratory Practice for the B.Tech. students. However, it would be equally useful for B.Tech./B.E. students across the country. DISTINGUISHING FEATURES : A practical and student friendly text, the stress being on the functional aspects of the language and various activities for acquiring the language. Gives the Methodology of conducting activities such as GDs, Interviews and Presentation. Provides model GD topics and the step-by-step process of making PPTs. Clearly spells out all the details, right from preparing a good job application, researching the company (including its financial health), to preparing the job portfolio, to wearing the proper dress, handling questions, and negotiating salary. Provides an extensive list of probable questions along with their answers to prepare students for mock interviews. Also gives well-crafted questions at the end of each lesson.
This book presents recent studies on the power electronics used for the next generation wind turbine system. Some criteria and tools for evaluating and improving the critical performances of the wind power converters have been proposed and established. The book addresses some emerging problems as well as possibilities for the wind power conversion, and may be useful as an inspiring reference for the researchers in this field.
Next Generation Wireless Systems and Networks offers an expert view of cutting edge Beyond 3rd Generation (B3G) wireless applications. This self-contained reference combines the basics of wireless communications, such as 3G wireless standards, spread spectrum and CDMA systems, with a more advanced level research-oriented approach to B3G communications, eliminating the need to refer to other material. This book will provide readers with the most up-to-date technological developments in wireless communication systems/networks and introduces the major 3G standards, such as W-CDMA, CDMA2000 and TD-SCDMA. It also includes a focus on cognitive radio technology and 3GPP E-UTRA technology; areas which have not been well covered elsewhere. Covers many hot topics in the area of next generation wireless from the authors’ own research, including: Bluetooth, all-IP wireless networking, power-efficient and bandwidth-efficient air-link technologies, and multi-user signal processing in B3G wireless Clear, step-by-step progression throughout the book will provide the reader with a thorough grounding in the basic topics before moving on to more advanced material Addresses various important topics on wireless communication systems and networks that have emerged only very recently, such as Super-3G technology, 4G wireless, UWB, OFDMA and MIMO Includes a wealth of explanatory tables and illustrations This essential reference will prove invaluable to senior undergraduate and postgraduate students, academics and researchers. It will also be of interest to telecommunications engineers wishing to further their knowledge in this field.
Early childhood is the most important stage of human development yet in Middle East and North Africa countries there is little research and inadequate investment in this crucial stage of life. This book covers risk, protective factors, policies and programs that can address inequality and shortfalls in the early years of life.
This book investigates new enabling technologies for Fi-Wi convergence. The editors discuss Fi-Wi technologies at the three major network levels involved in the path towards convergence: system level, network architecture level, and network management level. The main topics will be: a. At system level: Radio over Fiber (digitalized vs. analogic, standardization, E-band and beyond) and 5G wireless technologies; b. Network architecture level: NGPON, WDM-PON, BBU Hotelling, Cloud Radio Access Networks (C-RANs), HetNets. c. Network management level: SDN for convergence, Next-generation Point-of-Presence, Wi-Fi LTE Handover, Cooperative MultiPoint.
Business Intelligence (BI) has been successfully deployed by modern businesses to serve their customers and stakeholders. However, organizations increasingly look at BI to be all pervasive and realize its higher level of potential, instead of following it conventionally. The book covers the techniques, technologies and frameworks that can be used to build next generation BI.
