On 4th of December 2019, IEEE AIUB Student Branch successfully organized a seminar on “Microwave Transmission in Telecommunications” at American International University-Bangladesh (AIUB) in collaboration with IEEE Bangladesh Section Student Activities Committee, IEEE Young Professionals, IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society AIUB Student Branch Chapter and Faculty of Engineering, AIUB. The seminar was conducted by Rajesh Kumar Paul, Specialist, Microwave Operation, Technology Division, ROBI AXIATA Limited; Treasurer, IEEE Young Professionals Bangladesh Section.
The seminar was inaugurated with the welcome speech of Dr. M. Tanseer Ali, Former Counselor, IEEE AIUB Student Branch; Senior Assistant Professor, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB who talked about various types of Antennas that are available right now and how its internal configurations have evolved till now compared to the past. He also discussed the progression of Microwave and Telecommunication sectors along with the research opportunities it provides for higher education.
Then, the speaker Rajesh Kumar Paul took the stage and discussed the history along with the importance of Microwave Transmission systems in recent times. He also talked in details about various types of Antennas and other equipments that are involved in transmission along with their characteristics, infrastructure and parameters.
In addition, he talked elaborately about Synchronous Transport Module (STM), and its functions in Telecommunication system. He also gave a brief knowledge to the participants about Microwave Frequency Bands and also explained the suitable range of frequencies that are generally used. Finally, he concluded with an interactive Question-Answer session.
After that, Dr. Mohammad Hasan Imam, Counselor, IEEE AIUB Student Branch; Senior Assistant Professor, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB delivered the concluding speech where he discussed about the wide range of applications of Microwave Transmission. He also motivated the participants for electing Telecommunication in higher education due to its promising future. Later, Dr. Mohammad Hasan Imam presented a token of appreciation to Rajesh Kumar Paul. A group photo session was carried out which marked the end of the seminar.
