IEEE RUET Student Branch arranged a program titled "Green Brain 2015" sponsored by The American Center, U. S. Embassy- Dhaka. Four competitions including seminars were arranged.
Technological Development is based on acquiring knowledge in the different technology sectors and their implementation. IEEE RUET Student Branch has a goal to inspire students for involving themselves in the implementation of their acquired knowledge through every program. Details of the competitions are the following:
1. Electronics based project competition: Manual work is being replaced by automatic system day by day. Electronics devices have a great impact on this sector.
An Electronics Based Project Competition can give students the opportunity to implement their ideas to improve this sector. In this competition, participants bought electronics based projects which have utility towards humanity.
2. Idea contest: Most of the time, students have technology-based ideas that can be implanted in the business sector. But, they do not get opportunities to express their ideas and to make them applicable. This competition gave them a stage to show their creativity. The main goal of the competition was to create a platform to spread entrepreneurship among students.
3. Poster design competition: Natural disasters often cause death and serious damages. The bad effects can be reduced by using the latest technologies. A poster design competition based on "Defense against natural disaster by technology" was arranged in this program. Participants in the competition bought a poster to show their concept related to the topic on the day of the competition.
4. Article writing competition: An article writing competition will be arranged only for female students. In the competition, the participants wrote on a topic titled "Your thoughts on advancing Humanitarian causes through technology".
IEEE RUET Student Branch presented "Guide to Prepare and Publish Technical Paper", a seminar providing a comprehensive understanding of the importance of writing a technical paper and participants was provided with simple yet powerful strategies and skills that may be implemented into their writing and publishing a technical paper.
To encourage more participation of female students in technological research and professional activities, for the first time IEEE RUET Student Branch offered free registration facilities to the female participants in this seminar.

IEEE RUET Student Branch organized a seminar titled "Seminar on higher education in the US" The United States has one of the world's finest university system. The United States has more institutions of higher learning than any other country in the world. Importantly, academic bodies provide absolute quality education. Studying in the United States and abroad does not just give you tangible degrees and certificates. For any international student, the USA has a lot to offer: one of the most prestigious, top-ranked higher education systems in the world, eclectic cities and beautiful natural parks, culture, history and a very multicultural population. In this seminar opportunities of Bangladeshi students to study in the US were discussed. Speaker profile:

The generation of power in Bangladesh is still primitive and can not satisfy our total requirement. The ultimate solution to this is Nuclear power. So we really need to focus on this great source of power. So IEEE RUET Student Branch organized a seminar titled "Introduction to Nuclear Power Plant in BD" Where the prospects of this kind of power generation, its advantages and disadvantages were discussed. The orientation of Bangladesh to nuclear power will be through the 'Rooppur Nuclear Power Plant' which is expected to pave the way for national development to a great extent.

An IT-based Quiz contest was arranged on the same day
RoboTour & Programming Contest was organized and managed jointly by the IEEE RUET Student Branch and Dept. of Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Rajshahi University of Engineering & Technology. It was granted by The American Center of U. S. Embassy, Dhaka.
The purpose of "RoboTour and Programming Contest" was to start a small initiative to create a networking and development platform for the engineering students who are interested in robotics and programming. The whole event was held for two long days. There were seminars for the interested students on career development, robotics and programming in this two days event along with the robotic and programming contest. The seminar was conducted by renowned speakers to increase the view of robotics among the students. We had an attractive amount of money as a prize for both the programming and robotic winners. Considering all the fact, we had given the emphasis on this event only to expose the potentiality of the engineering students in robotics and programming.
Most importantly, our Programming Contest was categorized into two parts. Category-1 is open for all the undergraduate students of all UGC approved universities of Bangladesh and Category-2 is open for only the undergraduate students of Rajshahi University of Engineering & Technology (RUET). The second category was introduced only to encourage the junior programmers of RUET.
