TALENTED: Elisha Indarjit TALENTED: Elisha Indarjit

A postgraduate student’s research proposal made an impression at the recent 22nd annual Power and Electricity World Africa 2019 conference, earning him an all-expenses-paid trip to the Philippines.

Elisha’s Indarjit’s presentation was titled Software-defined networking based on Centralized Control for Smart Grid Communication.

Elisha, who is studying towards his Masters in Engineering, said the adjudicators selected his presentation as one of the top three student presentations.

He said Prof Marco Adonis, Deputy Head: Operations, in the Centre for Distributed Power and Electronic Systems, had encouraged him to enter his abstract.

“I am very thankful to God, Dr Adonis and CPUT for giving students the platform to grow and nurture skills that industries seek." 

Elisha will be departing for the Philippines later this month, where he will attend an international conference on power.
