As part of the IEEE Best fresher competition, IEEE CS CET conducted “CodeStreak”, a C/C++ coding event. The aim of the event was to identify the best incoming student in coding in order to encourage them to improve their coding skills in the future and to make them a part of the core technical team in the college, right from the start.

A written preliminary test was conducted of which 6 finalists were chosen. The finalists were given problems that involved lateral thinking and had applications to the real-world. All the finalists performed brilliantly and most of them solved all the problems within the stipulated time. The winners were chosen by judging on the efficiency of the code, output obtained, optimizations done and documentation of the code.

The winners of the event were: Revathy (CS) and Aswin PJ (EC).

OS expo From Computer society

Dates: March 7-10
Venue: Dhwani Reception Hall

With the objective of promoting the use of Free and Open Source Software, IEEE CS CET held an OS Expo as part of Dhwani-2013, the annual inter-collegiate cultural festival of College Of Engineering, Trivandrum.

Many versions of FOS Software were kept on display throughout the four days of the fest. Our volunteers, Mr. Rohan Reji, Mr. Mathews Joy and Mr. Kevin Martin of IInd year CSE, explained the various features of the different versions of the software on display to the visitors. A Freedom Toaster, a machine containing all the Free Software, was brought in, with the help of Zyxware Technologies, Techno Park, Trivandrum. The Freedom Box enabled the visitors to take home the open software of their interest.

A Talk on Cyber Forensics

Guest Speaker: Mr Satish Kumar K,

Participation : 50+

Senior Engineer,

Resource Centre for Cyber Forensics,


: CETAA Hall, College of Engineering Trivandrum

: 27 July, 2012

The talk on Cyber Forensics was organised on behalf of the IEEE Computer
Society SB CET on 27 July 2012. Even though the talk was supposed to start at
12:30 PM, the CETAA hall gradually began filling at 12 noon itself. By 12:30 PM,
the audience reached its full strength, all eyes directed at the podium for the
session to start.

The session began by Mr Rahul R, Chair Person, IEEE Computer Society SB CET
reading out the IEEE Code of Ethics.

Mr Amit Praseed, IEEE Computer Society SB CET member, delivered the
Welcome Address. He welcomed all the eager young students and then
welcomed our guest speaker Mr Satish. He gave a short introduction on the
topic of Cyber Forensics, explaining its necessity in the current times.

Mr Satish began his presentation with a small introduction on Cyber Forensics.
He cited recent examples, including one which mentioned how terrorists hid
steganographic information in video tapes, and explained the current scope of
cyber forensics and its importance. He then proceeded to explain what cyber
forensic experts do to prevent contamination of digital evidence, how they
recover deleted and corrupted files and how they discover hidden information
inside files. The session was very interactive and the students came up with a
lot of questions. Mr Satish handled the questions expertly, and the students
were very satisfied.

Mr Satish then proceeded to put the theory in action using a tool developed
by CDAC Trivandrum called CyberCheck. He went on to delete some files from
a drive, and then manipulated some file extensions. In a matter of minutes,
he successfully recovered each of the files that he had deleted and even
recovered the files which he had manipulated. As he performed this magic, the
hall rang up with applause.

Mr Satish ended the talk by answering the questions put forward by the
students. They posed a number of questions, and he dealt with each and every
one of them until the students were satisfied.

Mr Venkiteshwaran R, General Secretary, IEEE Computer Society SB CET,
delivered the Vote of Thanks.

Mr Rahul R, Chair Person, IEEE Computer Society SB CET, presented Mr Satish
with an honorarium as a token of our gratitude and concluded the event.

The event proved to be an eye-opener for most of the students on the
necessity of Cyber Forensics in the modern world. Without a doubt, our aim at
conducting the talk was the same.
