Wilkes University


Kudos to Vijay Arora

BIT’s Seventh Annual World Congress of Nano Science & Technology-2017 (Nano S&T-2017)  has invited Professor Vijay K. Arora, Professor of Electrical Engineering and IEEE-EDS Distinguished Lecturer, to speak at the conference held at the Hilton Fukuoka Sea Hawk Hotel, Japan from Oct. 24 to 26, 2017. This year's theme is “Welcome to A New Era of Nano-Level.” 

Arora will serve as the keynote speaker for Session 404: Nanosystems and Nano-Devices. The conference is greatly honored to provide him with two days local hospitality and waiver of registration.

Professor Arora’s keynote lecture Ohm to Arora: A New Paradigm for Nanoscale Devices and Circuits is downloadable from MediaSpace of Wilkes University.  In a newfangled paradigm through deployment of the Nonequilibrium Arora’s Distribution Function (NEADF),  Professor Arora convinces the audience that Ohm’s Law that is backbone of the circuit theory and electronics cannot be used for circuits and devices approaching micro- and nano-scale.  In his book entitled  Nanoelectronics: Quantum Engineering of Low-Dimensional Nanoensembleshe is enthusiastic about newsworthy  applications of NEADF to Graphene Nanoelctronics and Semiconductor Physics for the benefit of the global scientific community.

Arora has been invited to give distinguished lectures under IEEE-EDS Distinguished Lectures Program at the University of Jammu and Veltech Dr.RR & Dr.SR University in India, spanning wide variety of topics from technopreneurship to system engineering to nanoscience and nanotechnology during December 2017 and January 2018.  Fulbright Scholar Program working in association with the United States Educational Foundation in India values the importance of his expertise in advancing the mission, vision , and values of the Washington Accord and Nanotechnology Research. India was admitted into the Accord in 2014.

Arora is vocal on stating that any country who is willing to learn and advance America’s leadership in higher education deserves his respect, honoring and attention. In a lecture entitled “Flipped Classroom Using MediaSpace,”  Thursday,  Aug. 17 in Breiseth 106, he made a vibrant presentation as a truly global citizen in depicting the engineering as yoga (integration) in synthesizing technology, mind and creativity to make Wilkes engineering resonate throughout the globe.
