2015-10-10 : Aman Madaan, Rohit Gupta awarded for excellence in TA work (Spring'15)
* M.Tech 2 student Aman Madaan, for the Spring 2015 course CS 725 (Foundations of Machine Learning) taught by Saketh. To quote Saketh, "Aman was extremely sincere and enthusiastic. He proactively used to seek advice and prepare resources for the course. With some help, he designed and floated all the simulation assignments for the course! More than everything, his attitude and sincerity gave me immense confidence to handle a large class (~100 students)."
* PhD student Rohit Gupta, for the Spring 2015 course on Embedded Systems (CS 684) taught by Krithi. To quote Krithi, "The UG and PG versions of the "Embedded Systems Course" have, over the last few semesters, become very hands-on. This migration has been possible due to many contributions from a team of TAs lead by Rohit. His contributions include: - New infrastructure establishment for the course, involving evaluation of different hardware platforms, procurement, testing of hardware for the course and coming up with project ideas. - Training other TAs on the course hardware. - Designing the lab exercise and assignment to cover concepts covered in the course. - Migration of lab work from Assembly to C to increase the number of experiments and students' exposure. - Guiding students in the course projects performed on a wide variety of hardware platforms. For some hardware, virtually no information was available so this required a lot of trial and error."
