IEEE AUST SB Industrial Tour 2017
To complete engineering education, practical knowledge is must for every engineering students and industries are the best place to acquire the hands-on knowledge. In view of this, IEEE AUST Student Branch organized a visit to country’s one of the leading electrical components manufacturer, Energypac for the student members.
The team for industrial visit consisted of 34 students and 4 faculty members. During the tour in the factories, the members were divided into two equal groups for better understanding of the processes. Under supervision of Engr. Md. Munirul Huda, expert engineers of Energypac Engineeing Ltd. showed students the principles of Cast Resin Transformer manufacturing, Operating procedure of Power and Instrument Transformer, High Voltage Lab, Switchgear Lab and Vacuum Circuit Breaker.
The visit gave the students a hands on knowledge on how the components of a power system are manufactured and tested. By visualizing the theoretical knowledge, this will surely have a lasting effect on the students.
Inter-University Seminar on Higher Studies in USA and Europe
Nowadays students are very much interested for pursuing their higher studies in abroad specially in USA and different countries of Europe after completing their undergraduate degrees. But because of having less knowledge about the procedure of processing, students don’t find proper guidance. For guiding these young students for their future goal, IEEE AUST Student Branch organized an inter university seminar on “Higher studies in USA and Europe”. The speakers were renowned faculty members of Ahsanullah university of science and technology.
Technical Discussion on Power distribution, protections and earthing system
Power distribution, protections and earthing systems are the most important issues in the field of Power system. Students of electrical engineering must have clear knowledge about these issues for research or job life. The students who do not have any power related subjects also should have knowledge about these issues for interviews and for practical issues. Thinking about these necessities, IEEE AUST Student Branch has arranged a technical discussion. Honorable ,Chairman, CEO, DGM and other guests of the most promising company named ” ADEX Group Of Companies and respected Head of the EEE dept., Dean of the Engineering dept. and Treasurer of AUST were present.
