AIUB Community of Engineering Students (ACES) organized a seminar titled “Polymeric Nano-Materials for Engineering” on November 18, 2019 at AIUB. The program began at 3:30 pm with the participation of about 40 students from different departments. The purpose of the seminar was to provide substantial information on polymeric Nano-materials and their application in engineering fields.
Prof. Dr. Tafazzal Hossain (Pro Vice Chancellor, AIUB and Dean, Faculty of Science and Technology, AIUB) inaugurated the seminar by greeting the speakers and the students. He also shared his experience related to the seminar topic. Followed by, Prof. Dr. Md. Abdur Rahman (Associate Dean, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB) enlightened the importance of nanotechnology in this modern era and motivated students to learn its application on engineering fields. Later on, honorable speaker, Dr. Mohammed Tariqul Islam (Senior Assistant Professor, Natural Science (Chemistry), AIUB) started his presentation on Polymeric materials for Nanotechnology. He started by discussing about polymers, the process of polymerization, its classification, and a few examples related to it. He then gave a small introduction on the polymer that he synthesized during his PhD and moved on to talk about nano fabrication technology and types of nano-materials. Later on, he discussed about the application of nano-materials which includes packaging, electrical and electronic components, drug delivery system etc. After that, he focused on polymeric materials in electrical and electronics engineering where he mentioned that the materials are mostly used in displays, printable electronics, sensors, wearable sensors, rechargeable batteries, etc. Furthermore, he talked about his research work which is Morphological Studies of semi fluorinated block co-polymeric thin films and with this he concluded his presentation. A short question answer session was conducted with the participants. Afterwards, Dr. S. Mosaddeq Ahmed (Professor and Head, Department of Natural Science (Chemistry), AIUB) gave a short speech on Nano science and technology. Finally, Prof. Dr. Tafazzal Hossain (Pro Vice Chancellor, AIUB and Dean, Faculty of Science and Technology, AIUB) gave the closing speech, where he encouraged the students to explore the field of nano technology and its application. He along with Dr. S. Mosaddeq Ahmed provided certificate and crest to the speaker. Dr. Mohammad Mahbub Rabbani (Associate Professor, Department of Chemistry, AIUB), Dr. Farzana Khalil (Assistant Professor, Natural Science (Chemistry), AIUB), Abir Ahmed (Lecturer, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB; Motivator, ACES) and Mr. Md. Shahriar Pervez (Lecturer, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB), graced the event with their presence.
