build and test energy efficient vehicles. It is of course a matter of great pride to us when students from Pakistan show such determination despite the meager resources they usually have to work with. and two teams from the Pakistan Navy College of Engineering (NUST) participated in the Shell Eco-Marathon to compete against 196 other teams from across the world to see whose vehicle went the furthest distance with the least amount of fuel! Thus. colleges. Shell International has been running the Shell Eco-marathon in Europe for nearly 25 years.5 NUST SEECS IEEE Chapter© Shell Eco Marathon TAKING AN INITIATIVE AND MAKING US PROUD! We hear of technology based competitions every now and again. Winning is not necessary. thousands of spectators and widespread media attention. The Pakistani participation is a source of great pride for us and we wish the participating teams the best of luck! 5 | i Voltaic | 2010 .” focused on more ―roadworthy‖ fuel-efficient vehicles. Open to high schools. there is need to encourage them. Addressing at the media launch of Shell Eco-marathon at a local hotel in Pakistan. so there is need to boost it. Energy use in the world is on the rise with each passing day. The shell eco competition is a means of ensuring this and participation of our country students shows that we understand this state. the winner is the team that goes the furthest distance using the least amount of energy. The energy sector is the way of life. And with such active participation in developing environment friendly energy resources it is only a matter of time before more of such energy production means are developed. This event also affords an outstanding engagement opportunity for current and future leaders who are passionate about finding sustainable solutions to the world‘s energy challenge. Malaysia. For both categories.” or futuristic. Burraq became the first Pakistani car to run on the Euro Speedway track Germany! Taking such an initiative and becoming the first four competitors in this global competition was truly an amazing undertaking. streamlined vehicles and “Urban Concept. participation and having the nerve to present your ideas to the world is enough. Mr Zaiviji Ismail Chairman and Managing Director Shell Pakistan informed the public that compared to the four teams competing from Pakistan last year this year 30 teams from Pakistan universities have been registered to took part in the event while 130 teams from other countries of the world will vie in the event! The Chairman said that a vast talent is present in Pakistani youngsters. teams can use either conventional or alternative fuels to see which vehicle goes the furthest distance for just a liter of fuel. where the event has grown to include more than 200 teams. the program challenges student teams to put their innovations to the test in two vehicle categories: “Prototype. The Shell Eco Asia Competition 2010 is scheduled to be held in Kuala Lumpur. With annual events in the Americas. there is need to ensure its sustainable use. The Shell Eco-Marathon 2009 held in Germany stretched over three (3) days at the Euro Speedway Lausitz track in Germany. Energy resources will never be enough to meet the requirements so we need to manage them. therefore. The Shell Eco-marathon is one such competition which challenges high school and college student teams from around the world to design. and when Pakistanis are involved in them it makes us inordinately proud. organized by Shell Pakistan in collaboration with Mediapulse. Of immense interest to every Pakistani was the fact that there were 4 Pakistani teams of young engineers who competed in the Shell Eco marathon 2009 for the very first time! Two teams from the Ghulam Ishaq Khan Institute of Science and Technology (GIKI). however. Europe and Asia. universities and technical institutes across the globe.

Scientists have known for a long time that this development has to slow down critically during the future decades when the even tighter inexpensive packing of transistors would require them to shrink down to the atomic length scales. Second. The rapid development of computers. As a student at Purdue University in Indiana. In the recently developed transistor. Hao Hua came up with a design for a laptop that rolls up into a shape similar to that of a mailing tube. The driving force behind the measurements reported now is the idea to utilize the spin degree of freedom of an electron of the phosphorus donor as a quantum bit. The researchers were able to observe in their experiments spin up and down states for a single phosphorus donor for the first time.6 NUST SEECS IEEE Chapter© Future && upcoming tech Defining the Q-bit The working principles of the device are based on sequential tunneling of single electrons between the phosphorus atom and the source and drain leads of the transistor. and the open design relies on airflow to keep the electronics cool and quiet.

They did battle but on a green screen bridge in a studio. The result was the audience could sense every little emotion on these creature‘s faces. while the movie took place around you? Seeing how technology is progressing by leaps and bounds. Films today sport remarkable visuals. robots…anything is possible in motion pictures now. Motion capture technology has made it possible to incorporate photorealistic animation into movies. Anything less than photorealistic would have left little impression on audiences. An entire scene can be filmed in the studio against a blue screen and the background pasted later. Laser Swords.

The dramatic sceneries depicted in these films are nothing without the technology that makes them possible. but wouldn‘t it have been even more awesome if you could‘ve walked those jungles. 2009‘s epic Avatar portrayed an entire civilization of humanoid creatures with realistic facial animations and fluid body movements. As digital technology has improved and picture quality has come on par with analog film picture quality more and more Hollywood movies are now being shot digitally. Each actor‘s facial animations were recorded using motion capture cameras and portrayed onto the 3d models of the creatures. it may well happen sooner than you‘d expect. view and adjust scenes in real time eliminating the wait required in regular film processing.

Digital cinematography‘s acceptance was cemented in 2009 when Slumdog Millionaire became the first movie mainly in digital to be awarded the Academy Award for Best Cinematography. smelt the air and smoke. Slowly films are progressing from recording on analog film to digital film recording. slow motion sequences. and I‘ll walk you through how it‘s all done.7 NUST SEECS IEEE Chapter© Film making technologies It‘s the 21st century and film studios are pushing the boundaries of what technology can bring to life on the theatre screen. and we can only begin to imagine what the future might hold. Blue or more recently green screens are used to project a character into a simulated environment. The illusion is that of the character actually interacting with that environment. floating mountains. Seeing Revenge of the Sith (2005) you may think Obi Wan and Anakin actually battled over a bridge dropping down to a river full of lava (a little hazardous to the actor‘s lives don‘t you think?). It allows them to record. so-good-you-have -to-see-it-twice movies. Digital recording opens up a plethora of possibilities for film makers. Anyone remember John Connor running from a ―liquid‖ terminator in Terminator 2 (1992)? How cool was that. Seeing is believing. Avatar was ground-breaking because it let the audience see the its world in lush 3D. Motion pictures have come a long way since the silent exhibits of the early 20 th century. As we move into the future. audience pulling. film makers keep pushing the boundaries of awe-inspiring. touched and felt the plants. breathtaking sceneries and picturesque worlds.

This art has evolved ever since and now we are in a computer age. as much as they possibly can.470 Professional’s Salary: $112. Cryptanalysts nowadays have a variety of responsibilities. Such was the art of cryptography and so it is nowadays. deciphering and the safety of our secrets. cryptanalysts are hired by companies to design security and encryption systems for online stores and companies. Cryptanalysts usually start their career with an undergraduate computer science degree majored in network security. the augmentation in the salary tremendously increases. Thus. They sometimes were hidden in codes in letters. in which we require the use of this art to hide as well as decipher codes. So these analysts can find an exhilarating career ride in front of them.8 NUST SEECS IEEE Chapter© Career Analysis i Career: Cryptanalysts In the past. Cryptography is an elaborate combination of mathematics and the language used for the encryption. or go into a mathematics related field.930 Average Salary: $76. or in maps that folded to show the cipher and later deciphered as well. They help provide privacy for people and corporations. especially as nowadays when our personal identity and money transfer systems are threatened. cryptanalysts require creative mathematical and programmable understanding and the demand for such geniuses is growing with the growing threats in today’s world. Here are the approximate salaries based on reliable statistics: Entry Level Salary: $38. cryptography is a resourceful mixture of both mathematics and programming. Their career safety is also guaranteed as they can easily switch over to other branches relating to IT. These artists are known as cryptanalysts in today’s modern world. The starting pay scale for a cryptanalyst is usually the same as that of a software engineer but as the person specializes in network cryptography and gains relevant experience.780 In today's businesses and governments. This helps protect both the business and the customer. and keep hackers out of important data systems and which we use every day. 8 | i Voltaic | 2010 . messages etc. many complex mechanisms have been sought to protect identities and hidden messages or directions. but skilled mathematicians can also specialize in computer science to become cryptographers.
