The Staff Development Committee of the Engineering Department organized a program on GA mapping with outcome on November 23, 2017 from 1.45pm to 2.45pm.
Dr.Ilankumaran, HoS, Electrical and Electronics, conducted the program.
This awareness program focused on the importance of GA mapping with outcomes and how it satisfies course objectives.
He explained about HETs vision, mission, goals and values. He elaborated each attribute with examples and how it satisfies the course objectives. He briefed about how to measure the graduate attributes. At last, he has given training with few sample assessments and how to map with Gas.
This program was well received by the staff and highly beneficial to the participants
On 29 November 2017, 11 Bachelor’s students of the Electronics and Communication Engineering section, Ibri college of Technology visited Muscat Air Traffic Control Centre. Student details are given below:
An industrial visit to Suhail Bahwan Automobiles was organized for diploma and advanced diploma students, by the Industrial Link Committee.
Fifteen students and two faculty members from the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Section visited Suhail Bahwan on 19 November, 2017 from 9:30 to 12:00.
Mr. Srinu Satrabonia, Service Manager, welcomed the staff and students, introduced the car-servicing plant, and gave a brief introduction about service activities.
On 16 November, the Engineering group participated in a festival of Amla in the footsteps of ambition in Amla and Abla schools. In this festival there are many participants from different people from that school and outside the school. They display many projects like: chemical, mathematical, English, hand craft, and Arabic skills like; good hand writing. Also, they have many contributions from outside such as pets, decorative plants, Arduino workshops, traditional food, and a group which focuses on improving students’ education skills. Ibri College of Technology was part of this festival.
A guest lecture was organized by the Research and Consultancy Committee, Engineering Department on “Exploring Research Projects on Water Distribution System in PAEW”. The program was held on 8 November 2017, from 10am to 11am in the Multipurpose Hall of the Engineering Department.
Mr. Suleiman Ali Salim Al Abri, Operations Manager, Public Authority of Electricity and Water (PAEW) delivered the talk along with his team of engineers from electrical, instrumentation and mechanical specializations. The team discussed at length the various operations and maintenance work carried out in the Al-Dahirah region above and below ground level to supply potable water to the residents, the 57 Bore wells in Wadl Al Ayn well fields and the pumping capacity of the pumps. They also briefed on 11 ground storage reservoirs where the water from the wells is stored prior to being supplied to the consumers.
The team also talked about standby generators that provide 24 hours pumping if there was electricity failure. The capacity of submersible pumps is from 1HP to 100 HP. Forwarding pumps using 11KV high voltage motors, vacuum circuit breakers and capacitor banks with high dielectric strength materials are used to maintain such high voltages.
They addressed that the On-load and Off-load Tap Changer (OLTF) in the secondary side of transformer was not working in auto-mode which lead to serious voltage fluctuations. Therefore, they requested possible study and solutions from the experts in this field. This was followed by a lively question and answer section, which greatly benefited the audience.
The Staff Development Committee of the Engineering Department organized a presentation on “Strategic Tools to Implement Student Centered Learning Activities” on 02 November, 2017 from 1.45pm to 2.45 pm.
Dr. Naveed Hussain, Lecturer in the Mechanical Section of the Engineering Department, conducted the program, followed by a short hands-on training for all teachers.
The Staff development Committee of the Engineering Department organized a program on Revised Blooms Taxonomy on 01 November, 2017 from 9.00am to 10.30am.
Dr. K. Elangovan, HoS, Mechanical Section, Engineering Department, conducted the program.
Blooms Taxonomy is a common tool for curriculum planning and instructional delivery and assessment. Blooms Taxonomy briefed about classification of thinking (six levels of complexity). After 40 years of application, it was revised in 1995, as the Revised Blooms Taxonomy. The nouns of building blocks of learning are replaced with action verbs to have a better understanding on higher level of thinking and learning.
The Research and Consultancy Committee, in association with the Staff Development Committee of the Engineering Department, organized a Lecture, “Estimation of Calcium Deficiency by Medical Image Processing with Back Propagation Algorithm”, on October 26, 2017 from 9.00am to 10.00am.
Dr.G.Kumaravel, Lecturer, Engineering department, delivered the lecture. The presentation started with the calcium levels required for different age groups and the conventional methods available to detect the level of calcium in humans. The conventional methods use blood and urine samples, which are painful procedures for children and the accuracy of the results vary with drugs injected like Antacids, thyroxin and vitamin D pills.
The Staff development committee of the engineering department organized a presentation on “The psychology on classroom interaction” on October 26, 2017 from 1.00pm to 2.30pm.
Mr.Andries Oberholzer, Lecturer in English language Centre, conducted the program.
