On 8th December, 2016, IEEE AIUB Student Branch hosted a daylong workshop on “Antenna Designing and Simulation Techniques using CST Microwave Studio Suite” presented by IEEE MTT-S AIUB Student Branch Chapter. The workshop was held at Room No. 264, Faculty of Engineering Building, AIUB. The goal of the workshop was to familiarize IEEE members and nonmembers with designing antennas and analyzing the parameters through simulation.
The opening remarks were addressed by Prof. Dr. Md. Abdur Rahman, Educational Activity Coordinator, IEEE Bangladesh Section; Advisor, IEEE AIUB SB; Director and Associate Professor, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB; inducing the participants for gaining knowledge on the process of designing antennas and to work with Microwave and RF field. He also thanked IEEE AIUB SB for taking the initiative to enlighten the participants with the working of antennas.
The workshop was divided into three sessions. The first session commenced at 10.30 AM by Dr. M.Tanseer Ali; Counselor, IEEE AIUB SB; Associate Professor, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB, with a brief discussion about various types of antennas. He also explained the important parameters required for the performance analysis of the antennas and also theory behind their origination. The session continued till 11.30 AM.
The second session started by 11.30 by Mr. Shahriar Hasan Shehab; PHD Candidate, Monash University, Australia, with basic talk on CST Microwave Studio Suite and its function. He guided the participants about the various features of the software and finally designing an antenna and performing the simulation. The session continued till 4.15 PM.
Mr. Raja Rashidul Hasan: Assistant Professor, Dept. of EEE, AIUB, started the third session by 4.30 PM. The session included analyzing the simulation obtained and drawing a conclusion about the performance of an antenna. He also explained on how to improvise the performance of an antenna.
Later, Dr. Md. Abdur Rahman, Educational Activity Coordinator, IEEE Bangladesh Section; Advisor, IEEE AIUB SB; Director and Associate Professor, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB, delivered the closing speech. The instructors of the workshop were then presented a small token of appreciation from Dr. Md. Abdur Rahman on behalf of IEEE AIUB Student Branch.
