  • IMaRC and InCAP—the conferences of two different Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers were combined into a single conference: Microwave, Antennas, and Propagation Conference (MAPCON)
  • The first edition of MAPCON was organized in Bangalore, India during Dec 12-15, 2022

The Minister of State for Electronics & Information Technology and Skill Development & Entrepreneurship, Shri Rajeev Chandrasekhar marked his virtual presence at the recently held first edition of the IEEE MAPCON event (Microwave, Antennas, and Propagation Conference) 2022 in Bengaluru. He stated that the government has been giving capital support for research and development efforts for India to take the leap from being a tech consumer and back-office support to becoming a leading tech producer in the world.

The minister noted, “We are no longer a back-office support to the world. Our skilled engineers are now being encouraged to innovate and start their own ventures. And the government is all prepared to support their initiatives. The Digital India programme supported by future design, future labs and future skills shall act as enablers for India to become a Semicon nation.”

The minister specified that India will soon launch future labs to channel R&D capital for semiconductor and deep tech development. These labs will embed with C-DAC and will encourage industry and academia collaborations. He further emphasised that technology companies, start-ups and government will be the major player in electronics global value chains.

The Minister also inaugurated the IEEE-Ansys Centre for Skill Development in Radio Frequency (RF) and Microwave and Ansys Innovation Space (AIS) Portal at Reva University in Bengaluru. The Centre will help skill the workforce in the electronics, semiconductors, and A&D sectors. Shri Chandrasekar commented on the occasion: “The Centre for Skill Development demonstrates how industry and academia can come together and focus on creating state-of-the-art skills and Skill India Mission. I offer my support and help scale this up across India. The Ansys Innovation Space (AIS) portal is a good initiative that could very well complement the government’s effort in providing a digital-based skill development program.”

Notably, the Centre for Skill Development in RF & Microwave is designed for developing and accelerating innovation and development capabilities for both students and professionals. Focused on the adaption of the most advanced trends in RF and Microwave engineering into the existing system, the facility aims to provide training and knowledge to over 1500 people annually.

IEEE identifies itself as the world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. MAPCON 2022 aimed to create an international platform for Microwave, Antenna and Propagation experts and technologists from Industry, Academia and Startup ecosystems to collaborate and share their vision, expertise and knowledge. Ansys is a global leader and innovator of engineering simulation software.
