Qatar College (QU) witnessed the closing ceremony of the very first version of the Green Technological know-how Competitors 2021, organised by the University of Engineering (CENG), and in co-ordination with the Section of Electrical Engineering (EE) and the college student branch of Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) at QU.
The levels of competition launched in the 1st semester of the present-day educational yr 2021-2022, aimed to engage secondary faculty college students to enhance their complex and essential programming expertise as a result of coming up with a photo voltaic power tracker and discovering the elements of engineering design.
There have been 50 students participating from 10 distinct groups of Qatari independent universities. The closing ceremony was preceded by specialised workshops to support them in their engineering layout system, which involved standard workshops in Arduino microcontroller, and a different in 3D-printing.
At the closing ceremony, the competing teams presented their solar tracker styles to the competitiveness jury for the reason of assessing the designs primarily based on pre-defined requirements, such as style and design complexity, process reaction time, creativity and originality of the layout, and explanation of the problems that the groups experience and how they have been mitigated.
The jury consisted of 4 users affiliated with the CENG, including Prof Rashid A al-Ammari (college member, Section of Electrical Engineering and previous dean), Prof Nader M Meskin (school member, Office of EE), engineer Abdulrahman H Abunada (R&D engineer, Barzan Holdings), and engineer Yahya M Alhomsi (typical supervisor and co-founder of Voltaat).
At the end of the ceremony, in the existence of Prof Abdelmagid Hamouda, associate dean for Academic Affairs at CENG, the leading 3 winners of the opposition were declared and honoured. Jassim bin Hamad Secondary University ranked very first, adopted by Abdullah bin Ali al-Misnad Secondary University in second place, and 3rd area went to Al Wakra Secondary Faculty.
Prof Hamouda described the levels of competition as evidence that the Qatari schools’ process is following latest international benchmarks and developments, and stated the impacts of this improvement were being mirrored in the offered versions. Dr Mohamed A al-Hitmi (head, Office of EE) and Prof Nizar Zorba (college member, Office of EE and adviser for the scholar branch of IEEE) lauded the contributors.
The Division of EE at QU has won various intercontinental awards, and the programme is academically accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET), it was pointed out.
Engineer Mohamed Murtaza, head of College student Branch of IEEE at QU explained: “The learners confirmed wonderful inspiration in their shows, and their difficult work was evident by means of the submitted designs and styles. Though the main topic of the structure was unified, each individual college designed its have one of a kind layout. This confirms to us the results of the competitiveness in conveying a glimpse of what engineering design and style really is to the participating pupils.”
Engineer Tamim M al-Mulla, vice-president of the Student Branch of IEEE at QU, declared additional actions will be held in the foreseeable future with new and varied topics to unleash the abilities of the participating students, but with the exact same plans as in the present version of the level of competition.
