Engineering Department’s Extracurricular Activities in Fall 2018

Sunday, February 3, 2019 - 09:15
 
As in previous semesters, the AUIS Engineering Department arranged a number of extracurricular seminars for engineering students and the wider University community during the fall 2018 semester. Seminars covered topics in civil, construction, energy, and mechanical engineering.  
 
On October 22, Dr. Ahmed Salih and Dr. Aram Hassan, assistant professors at AUIS, delivered a presentation titled, “The Engineering Spirit.” The purpose of this seminar was to help students understand fundamentals of engineering, as well as how to be a good engineer and what to expect after graduation. The professors also shared their own personal experiences in the field of engineering.
 
Assistant Professor Dr. Naufel Bahjat presented a second seminar on November 22 about applications of bio-signal controllers in robotics. The seminar presented topics from the fields of engineering and information technology, giving students across both departments a broad idea of the use of robotics in medicine. 
 
Students in Wrya Abdulfaraj’s surveying class took a field trip to visit the site of an ongoing government project in Sulaimani. AUIS students studying civil and construction engineering had a unique opportunity to visit the Sulaimani Chamber of Commerce’s warehouse in Zhalla where they observed practical applications of profiles, cross-sections, cut and fill – all topics they were theoretically familiar with through their coursework. Site engineers at the warehourse took time to interact with the students and offered to be in touch in the future.
