IEEE AUST Student Branch organized a inter university workshop on Printed Circuit Board (PCB) Designing using Proteus on Thursday, July 6, 2017 at room 4A04 in the department of EEE, AUST. The four hour long workshop was instructed by Mr. Tashfiq Bin Kashem and Mr. Anupam Golder, who are currently working as an assistant professor and a lecturer respectively at the department of EEE of Ahsanullah University of Science and Technology. 53 students from 6 different institutions participated in the workshop who acquired experience of designing and making a print ready PCB using Proteus.
The Proteus Design Suite is an Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tool which includes schematic capture, simulation and PCB Layout modules. Learning how to design a PCB with this software is highly effective for an individual for making electronics projects compact, efficient and will help in his or her future career as a professional.
In his opening speech of the workshop, Mr. Masoodur Rahman Khan, councilor of IEEE AUST SB discussed about the influence of knowing about PCB designs and gathering a first-hand experience of it. Silvia Tasnim, mentor of IEEE AUST SB was also present at the session. After the workshop session a designing contest was arranged based on the topics discussed in the session and the first three contestants to finish the design were awarded at the presentation ceremony arranged afterwards. Dr. Satyen Biswas, professor and head of the department of EEE of AUST presided over the presentation ceremony. In his closing speech he congratulated the participants and later gave away honoraria to the instructors and prizes to the winners of the contest. All the participants were provided with certificates and snacks at the end of the workshop.
