A one day 'Workshop on Global Warming & Green Supply Chain Management' was organised by our Department of Mechanical Engineering  on 12th April, 2012 for the benefit of the Faculty of Engineering Colleges, Research Scholars, PG and UG Students of all the Engineering Colleges. Administrative Officer Prof. S. Nagarajan, welcomed the gathering. Dr. P. Sivakumar, Department of Mechanical Engineering introduced the guests to the gathering. In the first session the Resource Person Dr. Adekunle, Department of Mechanical Engineering, Ladoke Akintola University of Technology, Nigeria focussed on the adverse affect of global warming on quality of life and appreciated the Management of Vickram College of Engineering for conducting the workshop with a cause to spread awareness about Global Warming and Green Supply Chain Management. He also encouraged the participants for sustainable research and project work in this field. He also explained the research work done by him on 'Inverter powered lawn mower using CAD software'. He said that this lawn mower reduces noise and air pollution. The second session was handled by Dr. R. Rajaram, Professor & Dean, Department of Computer Science & Engineering, Vickram College of Engineering. He gave his presentation on 'Cause and Affect of Global Warming'. He said “Human activities have led to large increases in heat-trapping gases over the past century”. He further said “ The global warming trend in the past 50 years is due primarily to human-induced increases in heat-trapping gases”. The other Resource Persons included Dr. P.L.K Palaniappan, Associate Professor, Thiagarajar College of Engineering, Madurai, and Dr. M. Saravanan, Principal, SBM College of Engineering and Technology, Dindigul. Dr.Palaniappan held the view “ Human "fingerprints" also have been identified in many other aspects of the climate system, including changes in ocean heat content, precipitation, atmospheric moisture, and Arctic sea ice.” On the other hand Dr. M. Saravanan said “ Global temperatures are projected to continue to rise over this century; by how much and for how long depends on a number of factors, including the amount of heat-trapping gas emissions and how sensitive the climate is to those emissions”.40 students and scholars participated in this workshop and reaped the benefits. The workshop came to the end with a vote of thanks proposed by Prof. D. Pritima of the Department of Mechanical Engineering.
