Mukti Chaturvedi is Assistant Professor in the School of Engineering at Dayananda Sagar University. She graduated with electrical engineering and did postgraduation in VLSI and Embedded Systems. During her graduation, she cultivated interest in power electronics and control system. She instituted various projects pertinent to power electronics, control system and electrical drives. Relentless efforts resulted in technical acquaintance with several concepts from versatile fields encompassing manufacturing, especially welding. With the opportunity to work in various industries, she has got the exposure to different domains of work. The current role as a faculty member provided ample scope for reading, learning, teaching and performing interesting experimentations on different subjects moulding her to acquire multifaceted outlook. This led her to identify welding technology to be her area for Ph.D. which constitutes power source design, configurations and process understanding, automations through programming for control and converter modules.S. Arungalai Vendan is presently Associate Professor in the School of Engineering at Dayananda Sagar University, Bangalore.
