AIUB Community of Engineering Students (ACES) organized a seminar on “Nanotechnology & Its Applications” which was held at Multi-purpose Hall of AMERICAN INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY-BANGLADESH (AIUB). The goal of the seminar was to expand the knowledge of nanotechnology among the students of EEE and CoE and open the door of opportunities for them in order to keep pace with the advancing world in the field of nanotechnology.
The commencement of the seminar was done by Dr. Tafazzal Hossain (Pro Vice Chancellor, AIUB and Dean, Faculty of Science and Technology, AIUB) where he welcomed all the audiences and also emphasized on the importance of nanotechnology for engineering students. He also highlighted the development of nanotechnology in Bangladesh. Followed by, Prof. Dr. A.B.M. Siddique Hossain (Dean, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB) delivered his speech about the application of nanotechnology and the future research and working scopes in this very field. Subsequently, Dr. S. Mosaddeq Hossain (Professor, Department Head of Chemistry, AIUB) was requested to come forward and share the basic knowledge of nanotechnology. Moving forward, the speaker Dr. Mohammad Mahbub Rabbani (Associate Professor, Department of Chemistry, AIUB) was called on the stage to share his knowledge, perception and experience on the advancement of nanotechnology and its application to the audience. At the very beginning he introduced the terms “NANO” and “TECHNOLOGY” and the relation between them. He also introduced the major branches of nanotechnology such as Nano engineering, ceramic engineering, Nano electronics and Nano medicine etc. Besides, he showed a sample of Nano structure and explained about computer processing, nanowire solar cells, carbon Nano sensor, memory-storage, LED-LCD display, GD photo detector which are the particles of nanotechnology. He also extended his presentation by highlighting the extensive application of Nano technology in medical field. Furthermore, he shared his opinion about the position of nanotechnology course with respect to others and expressed his wish to expand the domain of nanotechnology course in AIUB. After the attractive presentation session, a question-answer session was held where very enthusiast students exhibit their keen interest on this field. Finally, Dr. Tafazzal Hossain (Pro Vice Chancellor, AIUB and Dean, Faculty of Science & Technology, AIUB) delivered a closing speech praising the presentation and encouraging the students towards the developing world of nanotechnology.
At the end of the seminar, a token of appreciation was given to the speaker Dr. Mohammad Mahbub Rabbani (Associate Professor, Department of Chemistry, AIUB) by Dr. Tafazzal Hossain (Pro Vice Chancellor, AIUB and Dean, Faculty of Science & Technology, AIUB). Dr. S. Mosaddeq Hossain (Professor & Department Head of Chemistry, AIUB), Dr. Mohammad Mahbub Rabbani (Associate Professor, Department of Chemistry, AIUB), Dr. MD. Jashimuddin Sir (Professor & Department Head of Mathematics, AIUB), Dr. Mohammad Nasiruddin Sir (Associate Professor & Head of EEE (Graduate program), Faculty of Engineering, AIUB), Dr. Humayra Ferdous (Head-in-Charge & Assistant Professor, Dept. of Physics, AIUB), Dr. Farzana Khalil (Assistant Professor, Faculty of Science and Technology, AIUB), Sumaiya Umme Hani (Assistant Professor, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB; Motivator, ACES), Abir Ahmed (Lecturer, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB; Motivator, ACES) Md. Shahriar Parvez (Lecturer, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB) graced the seminar with their presence.
