IEEE RUET Student Branch organized the 'Seminar on Chip Design Prospects in Bangladesh' on 28th December 2016. With the progress in the technology sector, our life is being blessed with various attractive electronics devices. The size of devices with the same features is getting smaller than the previous one. Integrated circuit (IC) is the reason behind this task which was considered impossible in ancient times. So, designing of IC or chip is becoming the topic of interest for engineers. Hence, IEEE RUET Student Branch organized this seminar.

IEEE RUET Student Branch arranged a seminar on "Effective Communication for Higher Education and Science & Engineering Outreach" on 3rd December 2016 (Saturday) at RUET Auditorium.
In this current world of professionalism, the experience of international education is an exquisite criterion to be added up to someone's resume. That is why 'Higher Study Abroad' is nowadays among the thoughts of most undergraduate students. But, it is unfortunate that many of them often fail to grab the opportunity of Higher Education due to their inefficiency in communicating with the proper authority. Considering this issue, IEEE RUET Student Branch has come up with the topic "Effective Communication for Higher Education". In this part of the seminar, participants got a chance to receive a proper guideline about important facts that will help them in communicating with the proper authority for higher education effectively. As our honorable speaker was from Canada, there was also an opportunity to have a fair idea about the Higher Education system in Canada.
We know that from the beginning of human civilization when man first discovered fire, the main objective was to serve humanity through the implementation of science and technology. But, it's a bitter truth that most of us have forgotten this concept. We study to pass the exams and feel no interest in learning new things or implementing technologies for a better tomorrow. The seminar included a session for motivating young minds to work for people and reaching out to the communities from which they came to return the favor. It was a great opportunity to learn from an honorable scholar.

IEEE RUET WIE Student Branch Affinity Group organized a workshop on Web Designing on 2nd November 2016 at RUET ECE Building.
Web design means collecting ideas, that are arranged and implemented aesthetically on an electronic web page and guided by certain principles for a specific purpose. It is a process of conceptualizing, planning, and building a collection of electronic files that determine the layout, colors, text styles, structure, graphics, images, and use of interactive features that end users can access using the internet with help of a web browser. It encompasses many different skills and disciplines in the production and maintenance of websites. The different areas of web design include web graphic design; interface design; authoring, including standardized code and proprietary software; user experience design; and search engine optimization.
In our current world of professional appearance is an unavoidably important criterion. In this era when time runs faster than ever, important decisions are made within a glimpse. A perfect appearance for a professionally built website hence needs quality work in web designing. IEEE RUET WIE Student Branch Affinity Group in association with IEEE RUET Student Branch arranged a workshop on "Web Design" on November 2nd, 2016. The workshop was mainly envisioned for undergraduate students who are interested in web designing and looking for an opportunity to get started.

IEEE RUET Student Branch organized a workshop on 'Presentation facts and strategies'.
"Presentation skill" Is there any sector where it is not necessary? The answer will surely be negative. It is a must at interviews, at meetings, speaking to colleagues and staff, presenting at conferences, presenting training, attending training and so on. For the students, the value of this skill is beyond description. It's not only a skill but also an art nowadays. But, it is so much unfortunate for us that most people don't know anything about a smart presentation. They don't know well how to present themselves, their ideas, their inventions etc. Even some of them cannot conduct well with others. But, the primary goal is for one's presentation skills to be better than his/her competitors, whoever and whatever they are. The secondary goal is for your presentations to get better with every speech that you deliver. So, to be the best in one's business, having the presentation skill will help him a lot.
There are some strategies to follow to give a fantastic presentation. Even, there are some facts to maintain a presentation within a given time. Through those strategies, a person can be successful to be prepared for any presentation. The workshop covered the following topics: 1. Power of Oration 2. Critical Thinking 3. Academic Speaking 4. Audience Analysis 5. Gathering Materials 6. Supporting Ideas 7. Speech Organization 8. Language and Delivery.
Technology is changing very fast and the people with the help of this technology are being upgraded dynamically. University can become the platform by organizing innovative events to update not only the students but their surroundings.
From the very beginning IEEE RUET Student Branch has been hosting innumerable technical events in order to encourage the students to come forward with innovative ideas and prove themselves. To continue this flow, IEEE RUET Student Branch organized a national level competition titled "Robo-Droid Championship-2016" supported by EMK Centre, Dhaka.
