AIUB Community of Engineering Students (ACES) organized a seminar titled “A Journey into The World of Embedded Systems” on February 20, 2020, at the Multipurpose Hall, AIUB. The program began at 11:30 am with the participation of about 200 students from the department of CSE, CS, EEE and CoE of AIUB. The purpose of the seminar was to provide essential information about embedded systems to build up a basic knowledge and also to establish the harmonious relation between academic skills with the industrial one.
Prof. Dr A.B.M Siddique Hossain (Dean, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB) commenced the inauguration of the seminar through his remarkable words where he emphasized on the 4th industrial revolution through embedded systems. He also highlighted some enormous applications of embedded systems like mobile phones, laptop, digital camera etc. Afterwards, speaker of the seminar Mr. Zafir Shafiee Chowdhury (Co-Founder, Director and General Counsel, Bondstein Technologies) began his presentation by providing a short introduction about himself. Before immersing into the main section of his presentation, he conducted a survey with 60 audiences to observe the knowledge of embedded systems among the young generation. Followed by the survey, Mr. Zafir started the seminar by covering the modern applications of embedded system that included brief illustration on Arduino. Next, he held another online quiz contest on the subject of Arduino and embedded systems of which the 3 highest scorers received prizes. Later on, he described briefly about different types of sensors with examples like HTM 32, gas sensor, ultrasonic sensor, temperature sensor, PIR, piezoelectric sensor etc. used in various applications. Mr. Zafir also featured two software namely Proteus and Eagle CAD which are used for designing bare bone circuit boards and showed some build in Schematic and PCB design in Eagle CAD. He ended his presentation by encouraging all the students to take the best from the world of knowledge and utilize them in constructing advanced effective future. The seminar came to its end with a question answer session where few students shared their experience of doing projects and the speaker also mentioned some of the projects his company working presently like smart trucking system for clean Dhaka, smart security system for exam question-papers, portable generators etc. Lastly, Prof. Dr. Md. Abdul Mannan (Director, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB) conveyed his closing speech where he emphasized on the importance of the embedded system in the society and inspired the students to pursue their career in this field.
At the end of the event, Prof. Dr. Md. Abdul Mannan (Director, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB) provided crest and token of appreciation to Mr. Zafir Shafiee Chowdhury (Co-Founder, Director and General Counsel, Bondstein Technologies) for successfully conducting the seminar. Mr. Sujan Howlader (Assistant Professor, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB), Ms. Tahmida Islam (Lecturer, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB), Tahseen Asma Meem (Lecturer, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB), Mr. Nirjhor Tahmidur Rouf (Lecturer, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB) and Mr. Abir Ahmed (Lecturer, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB; Motivator, ACES) graced the event with their presence.
