In technical paper writing such as Thesis papers, Research articles, Journals, even during writing a book, adding references is a must. But while adding a huge number of references, a writer faces many difficulties. In order to make it easier, software is used. EndNote is the most popular one for this kind of task. It is important to know about EndNote in details to lessen difficulties while writing a technical paper. Hence, IEEE RUET Student Branch organized a workshop titled “EndNote: An Efficient Assistant for Paper Publication” on January 13, 2017.
What is EndNote?
EndNote is a citation software package. It is produced by Thomson Reuters and commercially used to manage bibliographies and references when writing technical articles.
Why should be EndNote used?
Engineering student often has to write a thesis paper and sometimes other technical papers. Adding references while maintaining the formatting and numbering is quite time consuming and really challenging. Using EndNote makes it easier to add the references while maintaining the format guideline. It helps writer to cite large number of references without repetition. Also, the practice of adding references through citation software is beneficial to future authors of research articles.
So, all are cordially invited to attend the workshop to get acquainted with this software. The workshop will be conducted by:

IEEE RUET Student Branch presents 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, experience of international education is an exquisite criterion to be added up to someone’s resume. That is why ‘Higher Study Abroad’ is now-a-days 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 will get 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 honourable speaker is from Canada, there will also be 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 will include a session for motivating young minds to work for people and reaching out to the communities from which they came to return the favour. It will be a great opportunity to learn from an honourable scholar. It’s going to be a turning point for those who find no interest in their field of studies.

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.
Well, 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. IEEE RUET Student Branch is very much aware in this regard and thus it organized a workshop on ‘Presentation facts and strategies’ for its members.
The workshop coverd 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.

Technological Development is based on acquiring knowledge in different technical sector and their implementation. IEEE RUET Student Branch has a goal to inspire students for involving themselves in implementation of their acquired knowledge through every program. To continue this flow, 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. Details of the competitions are following:
1. Electronics based project competition: Manual work is being replaced by automatic system day by day. Electronics devices have a great impact in this sector. An Electronics Based Project Competition can give students opportunity to implement their ideas to improve this sector. In this competition, participants will bring electronics based projects which have utility towards humanity.
2. Idea contest: Most of the time, students have technology based ideas which can be implanted in business sector. But, they do not get opportunities to express their ideas and to make them applicable. This competition will give them a stage to show their creativity. The main goal of competition is creating 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 latest technologies. A poster design competition based on “Defense against natural disaster by technology” will be arranged in this program. Participants of the competition will bring poster to show their concept related to the topic on the date of competition.
4. Article writing competition: An article writing competition will be arranged only for female students. In the competition, the participants will write on a topic titled “Your thoughts on advancing Humanitarian causes through technology”. The participants should be present personally on the competition to take part.
EEE RUET Student Branch organized a Seminar on "Microcontroller & Introduction to Robotics".
The event coverd both the "basic" & "advance" level of topics which will help the participants to encourage themselves with their own creativity.
As microcontroller is one of the major engineering tools for Electrical, Mechanical and Computer Engineers with broad level of application including robotics, our seminar can helped the engineering students of RUET to explore the amazing field of microcontroller and robotics.

IEEE Day is a global event to be held every year on the first Tuesday of October, annually. This was going to be the 5th time in the history. All the engineers around the world were going to celebrate this day with great enthusiasm. The theme of the IEEE Day was "Leveraging Technology for a Better Tomorrow". Therefore, IEEE RUET Student Branch had taken its initiative to make this day livelier for the engineering students.
This year our Branch was going to celebrate this day by organizing a technological based competition among all the students.
The competition was to write on the “Latest inventions in Technology and its impact on our near future life.”
This task had been taken to motivate and make our engineers get familiar with the new innovations of modern technology.
IEEE RUET Student Branch arranged a workshop on "Mobile Application Development”, supported by IEEE Bangladesh Section on 20 & 21 March, 2017.
IEEEmadC (Mobile Applications Development Contest) is an annual international contest organized by IEEE for all IEEE student members across the globe. Teams from different student branches under IEEE Bangladesh Section took part in this contest in the previous years. In order to groom the students for the contest and boost up their participations, Student Activities Committee of IEEE Bangladesh Section (IEEE BDS SAC) had taken the initiative to support a series of technical workshops on Mobile Application Development in collaboration with different Student Branches under IEEE Bangladesh Section. IEEE RUET Student Branch is one of the five selected student branches for organizing this workshop.
Development of creative and user friendly mobile applications is making our living easier and more efficient. Hence, this skill is in high demand. This workshop offers you the opportunity to have a good start as a beginner in Mobile Application Development.

IEEE RUET WIE Student Branch Affinity Group organized “Workshop on Latex and PCB Designing” in association with WIE Affinity Group, IEEE Bangladesh Section on April 21st-22nd, 2017 at ECE Seminar Room, ECE Building, RUET.
LaTeX, a shortening for Lamport TeX, is a widely used document preparation system. The acceptability of a thesis paper quite depends upon the efficiency of the preparation of the writer’s documents. LaTeX comes handy in this regard. According to the LaTeX project website, the features that this software provides are:
*Type setting journal articles, technical reports, books, and slide presentations.
*Control over large documents containing sectioning, cross-references, tables and figures.
*Type setting of complex mathematical formulas.
*Advanced type setting of mathematics with AMS-LaTeX.
*Automatic generation of bibliographies and indexes.
*Inclusion of artwork, and process or spot colour.
*Using PostScript or Metafont fonts
Writing a quality scientific research paper is important for both pre and post graduate students. As IEEE RUET WIE Student Branch Affinity Group always aims at providing students the best assistance needed, we are arranging this workshop. If you are thinking of having a good start to LaTeX, join our workshop by getting registered. Remember seats are limited.
PCB, the printed circuit board, is the board base on which different components are electrically connected. It gives physical support to the components and is made of fiberglass or composite epoxy. PCBs are the main motherboards of any electronic device from simple ones to complex. Electronic devices can’t be thought of without PCBs.
As the field of electronics is increasing, the scope for PCB designing is on the rise. Not only that, students interested in electronics and taking it as major should have a command over PCB designing to excel academically. An effective PCB design reduces the possibilities of error and the chances of short circuit. A good knowledge in PCB designing will help the students to make their innovative ideas and projects come into reality. It will give the authority to explore the field of electronics.
