IEEEInstitute of Electrical and Electronics EngineersJagdish Chandra BosePresidency University honor award

Presidency University has received a rare recognition from Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). It is a professional association in the United States. The university’s former professor Jagdish Chandra Bose has been belatedly recognised by the international community. IEEE has awarded the University with a milestone plaque for Bose’s legendary work on the ‘millimetre wave’ in the field of physics.

Professor Malabika Sarkar, VC of Presidency University said that IEEE is awarding our university with this rare honour for AJC Boses’s work on his famous millimetre wave. We heard from their officials about this prestigious award about a month ago. Presidency is the first University in India, and among a handful worldwide, which has been facilitated with this rare award by IEEE.

Bose had been provided with a personal laboratory inside the department of physics in the university. The head of the department of physics, Dr Prodyot Kumar Roy, said that the initiation of this honour started in 2007. “We, the physicist, try detecting microwaves through oscillators and Bose’s device was able to generate nano waves, whose penetrating capacity is much higher than German psychicist Hertz’s device. Bose’s device was much smaller, more accurate and competent in detecting microwaves,” said Roy.
