From the urge to get the slender essence of real-life industrial experience, IEEE RUET IAS Student Branch Chapter, in association with IEEE RUET Student Branch organized a visit to HDVC Back to Back Station, Bheramara, Kushtia on 5th March 2020 with around 45 enthusiasts. Prof. Dr. S. M. Abdur Razzak (Professor, Dept. of EEE, RUET), Milton Kumar Kundu (Lecturer, Dept. of ECE, RUET), Suvra Prakash Biswas (Lecturer, Dept. of ETE, RUET), Abu Hanif Pramanik (Lecturer, Dept. of ECE, RUET) and A.S.M.Badrudduza Kanon (Lecturer, Dept. Of ETE, RUET) joined along with the devotees.
On the breezy morning of 5th March at 8:10 am, to requite the knowledge the journey towards HVDC station was started from RUET main gate by RUET bus. Meanwhile, on the bus, snacks were given to participants. After reaching the destination, participants were divided into two groups. One group was briefed on the control system and valve house -where the main rectification occurs in the facility and side by side, and the rest observed the transformers, transmission lines, filter section, and other parts and how the parts contribute in this station.
An executive Engineer demonstrated how 1000MW power is transmitted from India to Bangladesh via HVDC back to back parallel operation. Point to be added that as per the demand of our nation the HVDC Back to Back station supplies the power from India (which was contracted) to Bangladesh. The station makes the voltage from AC to DC and again converts DC to AC because it controls the power supply and keeps the frequency steady. Later on, two groups switched their position and got the opportunity to gather all the basic information about the sub-station.
Throughout the tour, students got the opportunity to get familiar with various devices that were only encountered in books. Which allowed them to visually examine thermistors, transformers, filters, rectifiers, inverters, etc. first hand. After finishing the tour, two groups gathered in the conference room where our respected Milton Kumar Kundu expressed the utmost gratitude towards the officials. Prof. Dr. Md. Abdur Goffar khan (Professor, Dept. of EEE, RUET) presented a token of appreciation to Sakhawat Hossain and gifted small presents to all the speakers. The visit was concluded with lunch in Ruppur. Finally, at 6:40 pm the journey ended at Rajshahi by providing certificates to the participants. It was a successful first industrial tour of this year, as it inspired the enthusiasts to dream big and work in these types of prestigious power field.
To spread out the knowledge of IoT also known as “Internet of things” & its improvisation on Electric vehicles, IEEE RUET RAS Student Branch Chapter organized a “Seminar on IoT based system & Electric Vehicle” in association with IEEE RUET Student Branch. Our honorable teacher, Prof. Dr. Md. Rokunuzzaman, (Professor, Department of Mechanical Engineering) was the designated speaker of this seminar. Prof. Dr. Md Nurul Islam (Professor & Head Dept. of Mechanical Engineering, RUET) was our chief guest. Throughout the seminar, the speaker highlighted different knowledge on IoT including its applications & its interrelation with automation. The speaker also talked about some applications of IoT which are already being used & some outstanding applications which can be done using IoT to make our daily life easier. Alongside he talked about some IoT projects as well as discussed his own. He also brought up some light on automation with some simple yet clear and technical words. Later on, he highlighted how automation can Effect on Electric Vehicle industry & how it can affect the future of our world.
The basic knowledge of the electric vehicle, its working process, and many other sides were highlighted and discussed broadly in his session. As a faculty adviser of Team Crack Platoon, he shared some exciting yet knowledgeable information on Electric vehicles from an expert’s point of view. The speaker also mentioned the scope for research in this field. In the end, he tried to quench the thirst of participants through the Q&A session where both parties share their ideas & concern on IoT & its role in Electric vehicles. Lastly our chief guest Prof. Dr. Md. Nurul Islam presented a small token of appreciation to our speaker Prof. Dr. Md. Rokonuzzaman.
To fulfill student's interest in humor research and answer their questions about higher studies abroad the “Seminar on Humor Research and Higher Studies in Abroad” took place on February 23, 2020, at 5:00 pm. The event took place in the EEE Hall room. The seminar was conducted by Nabil Hossain, Ph.D. Candidate, University of Rochester, New York. The seminar was also attended by honorable Dr. Md. Abdul Goffar Khan sir (Professor, Dept. of EEE, RUET), Md. Yeakub Ali Sir (Lecturer, Dept. of Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering, RUET), and Belal Hossain Sir (Lecturer, Dept. of EEE, RUET). A handful of students attended the seminar to fulfill their interest in both topics. The seminar was divided into two sections, the first section was about FunLines where the spokesman introduced the audience with his research “Stimulating Creativity with FunLines: A Case Study of Humor Generation in Headlines” and the second section was about higher study opportunities in abroad. Students were proffered the opportunity with an interactive session with the speaker where they could know more about the topics from the speaker. The seminar ended at almost 7:00 pm. Food and kits were provided for the attending students in the seminar. After the seminar, the speaker was presented with a small token of appreciation by the honorable faculty member Md. Yeakub Ali Sir (Lecturer, Dept. of Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering, RUET).
For manifestations of research and higher education, IEEE Computer Society RUET Student Branch organized a seminar on “Application Requirements, University & Scholarship Search in the US”. Mr. Ruhul Amin, the coordinator in EducationUSA, a global organization supported by the US government working to guide students getting into a U.S. University, was the speaker of the interactive seminar. This seminar provided current, accurate and updated official information that shows the scopes in higher studies in the US. The one and half hour presentation in the seminar covered the basic process of application in the US and their requirement, Scholarship information and best-fit Universities. This section provided a question-answer segment so that joining individuals can quench their thirst for higher studies. It is the greatest opportunity for those students who are interested to go for higher study in the US.
