On Thursday (August 10, 2023), the Department of Operations and Supply Chain Management (OSCM) arranged an industrial visit at Walton Hi-Tech Industries PLC. factory, located at Kaliakair, Chandra, Gazipur for the student majoring in OSCM. In the dynamic world of education, where theoretical knowledge often forms the foundation of learning, the role of practical exposure cannot be underestimated. One of the most effective ways to bridge the gap between classroom teachings and real-world applications is through industrial visits. These visits provide students with an opportunity to witness the workflow of industries, gain insights into the processes, and understand the complexities of various sectors. An industrial visit not only enhances the students' understanding but also paves the way for a holistic learning experience. The objective of this event harmoniously aligned with the Sustainable Development Goal of ensuring quality education (SDG 4), Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure (SDG 9) and Responsible Consumption and Production (SDG 12).
Dr. Md. Tamzidul Islam (Dept. Head, OSCM), Ms. Shahnaz Zerin Haque (Assistant Professor, OSCM), Md. Hasibul Islam & Hussein Areefur Rahman (Lecturer, OSCM) were the faculty members to take 23 OSCM major students in this visit. Mr. Kaisarul Islam & Mr. Mamun from Walton were in-charge to receive the group. They first provided a small presentation on Walton’s current condition and growth. Later, they took the students & teachers to refrigerator & air-conditioner production line where students got to see facilities and processes of these two production units. Students also got to understand the inventory management system & production flow inside the factory. Later in the afternoon, the group left Walton premises. FBA humbly appreciates the openhanded support extended by the AIUB management.
