The speakers emphasized the fact that an improper use of a mathematical tool or a mistake in calculations can lead to disastrous results in breaking bridges etc. The speakers highlighted the ways one can fight with natural disasters using Mathematics, along with increasing the safety and comfort of our lives. Lectures were delivered on a useful tool Matlab and labs were conducted on it (each participant had a computer for hands on learning). The lectures and lab on Matlab were very well received by the participants.
The valedictory session was graced by Prof. I.K. Bhat, Director MNIT Jaipur and Prof. Maithili Sharan was the guest of Honour for the valedictory function. There were 50 participants in the course.

At the end of the six day short term course, the participants were asked to fill out a feed-back form (without their name written on them). More than 95% appreciated the course and hoped that such a course will be organized again by the department in near future. Most of the participants wanted that a short term course purely on Mat lab must be organized in Jan. 2013 so that they may be able to attend it.
The participants arrived not only from different cities of Rajasthan but also from Haryana, Uttar Pradesh and Delhi. Over all the course was a success and participants appreciated the course, the Mat lab and the material provided to them through different lectures of the experts. In nutshell, the STC met all its objectives and goals successfully.
