Education plays a vital role in building the future of our nation by transforming lives and communities. We have several educator heroes who help students aim high and achieve their potential, often meeting and overcoming considerable challenges along the way. Recently Delhi based MT Research & Educational Services (MTRES) came up with Teaching Excellence Awards (TEA) 2018, to recognize the monumental role teachers play in our society as they instil a desire to learn and achieve and create tomorrow’s leaders. Meet one of the awardees, Dr. Sheshang Degadwala, Head of Computer Engineering Department, Sigma Institute of Engineering, Vadodara, who has been honoured with Promising Teacher Award in MTRES TEA 2018.
Dr. Sheshang obtained his B.E. Degree in 2011 from the department of Computer Engineering, BITs, Vadodara. Subsequently, he obtained his M.Tech. Degree From Charusat University, Changa, in 2013 and completed his Ph.D. in Computer Engineering from Madhav University, Abu Road, Sirohi, Rajasthan, in year 2018. He is associated with Sigma Institute of Engineering, Vadodara, since the last 6 years and is currently heading its Computer Engineering Department.
Ph.D. Research Area
Title: Privacy Preserving System Using Pseudo Zernike Moment with SURF & Affine Transformation on Dual RST Attacks
If someone is transmitting their private information by using digital watermarking techniques, there are too many chances that they may lose private information because of any kind of external attacks. Dr Sheshang’s research has resulted in developing robust technique with less time and data complexity that provides multi-layer privacy based on QR-Code, Visual Cryptography System and Watermarking. Using pseudo Zemike moment with SURF and Affine Transformation, his novel approach preserves privacy against Geometric Rotation, Scale and Translation attacks and also works for Dual RST attacks. His research has applications in Tampering Detection, Copy Protection, Copyright Protection, Fingerprinting and Broadcast Monitoring
Awards and Honours
Dr Sheshang has published several research papers in reputed international journals and conferences like Thomson Reuters and conferences including IEEE and Springer. He aspires to continue to focus on his research in the areas of Image Processing, Information Security and Data Mining.
MT Research & Educational Services is an initiative to bridge the gap between academics and industry. It was founded in 2013 with the combination of industry, academic and research personnel. They execute various educational events (Conferences, Seminars, Workshops, Short Term Courses, Trainings and Competitions) throughout India. They provide various educational platforms for direct engagement of students, academicians and corporates. They execute internships and placement drives also in colleges. Website
