FROM 18.11.2019 TO 30.11.2019

AICTE Sponsored Faculty Development Programme





Sona College of Technology, one of the top ranking engineering colleges in India, has achieved global identity through its involvement in research in recent technology and successful completion of projects and products. Situated in Salem, Tamilnadu, the southern part of India. Sona is the best destination for engineering aspirants. The college offers Bachelor of Engineering, Master of Engineering and doctoral degree(Ph.D) in all major disciplines. Sona which is an ISO Certified Institution, is known for its rich tradition and high values bestowed upon it by its Founder Chairman, Thiru. M.S. Chockalingam.

Sona College of Technology has been accorded recognition as a Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (SIRO) by the Department of Scientific and Industrial Research, New Delhi. This will entitle Sona to receive administrative support on issues that promote and encourage scientific research activities. The “AICTE – CII Award for Best Industry -  Linked Technical Institute in India 2018” and an acclaimed ‘A’ grade by ‘NAAC’ stand testimony to the commitment of the college to impart quality education. The College is equipped with world-class infrastructure and highly qualified and experienced faculty members. Sona’s sharp focus on quality education and training has turned it into an premier technical institution ensuring good placements in a wide range of companies. In short, Sona stands tall as one of the best institutions for world-class professional education.


The CSE Department was incepted with the vision of creating the most conducive environment for quality academic and research education. The department has an approved Research Centre under Anna University, Chennai and has strong industry institute partnership. The department has two PG programs and a UG program, The department also produced many high quality publications in Journals with impact factors.


This FDP aims to inculcate practical knowledge and experience the real time applications of Software Defined Networks (SDN).  The traditional rigid networking is not suitable to meet the current needs of   applications which require dynamism, intelligence and controllable networks when huge number of devices and systems get connected as in smart city, automated vehicles etc. There is an urge to redefine the concepts of networking to suit flexibility, automation and security which can be achieved through SDN. The participants will gain clear cut knowledge on the core concepts of SDN. They will be trained by the eminent academicians and industrial experts working currently in various domains of SDN like telecommunications (Ericsson – 5G), controllable switches and routers (CISCO – South Bound API), application interface (VMware – North bound API). It will widen their views and paves way for new innovations and scope for new research initiatives. The theme of this FDP is to upgrade the technical skills of recent trends in networking and thereby disseminating the gained knowledge to the student community in the right way and serve the society with many new inventions in this game changing field of the era.


  • To overcome the drawbacks of traditional  networking through agility and flexibility of  SDN

  • To respond quickly to changing business requirements

  • To orchestrate the network resources dynamically through controllers

  • To design and develop SDN networks
