On 11th November 2021, the IEEE AIUB Student Branch in collaboration with the IEEE EMBS AIUB Student Branch Chapter successfully organized a webinar session titled “Scope of Research on Biomedical Engineering” through the virtual platform of the GOOGLE MEET. The major focus of this webinar was to enlighten the participants about the current research opportunities and advanced technologies of Biomedical Engineering for the benefit of humanity in medical science. The event began with the illuminating inaugural speech by Prof. Dr. ABM Siddique Hossain, Advisor, IEEE AIUB Student Branch; Dean, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB, who delivered a brief overview of the benefits of medical research to humanity before moving on to a discussion of sophisticated biomedical engineering technology.
Later on, the host of the session then made a formal introduction and gave the floor to the esteemed speaker Dr. Muhammad Tarik Arafat, Assistant Professor, Department of Biomedical Engineering, BUET, to emphasize his enlightening presentation. The speaker initiated the session by reintroducing himself to the audience. He next reviewed the various areas of biomedical engineering, briefly explaining biomechanics and demonstrating the benefits. The speaker also addressed sports mechanics, walking patterns, cell mechanics, 3D printing, and biosensors momentarily. Dr. Arafat then moved on to discuss Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine, Organ Printing, and Neural Engineering. After that he proceeded to talk about medication research, BME Laboratory Facilities, Smart nanofiber applications, and a few famous capstone project examples. Finally, Dr. Arafat closed his presentation by discussing potential Gait Assistive Technology and thanked everyone. Following that, there was an interactive Question-Answer session in which the speaker answered all of the audience’s major concerns.
Later on, Dr. Mohammad Hasan Imam, Counselor, IEEE AIUB Student Branch; Advisor, IEEE AIUB Student Branch EMBS Chapter; Secretary, IEEE Bangladesh Section EMBS Chapter; Associate Professor, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB took the platform and presented the virtual token of appreciation to the honorable speaker. And then he gave the concluding speech where he appreciated the initiative taken by the student branch to organize this webinar session and thanked the honorable speaker. The session was graced by the presence of Mr. Kawshik Shikder, Motivator, IEEE AIUB Student Branch, Assistant. Professor, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB along with other faculty members of AIUB. 100 participants from different universities along with Executive members and Volunteers of the branch were present in the event.
