IEEE PES BUET Student Branch Chapter in association with IEEE BUET Student Branch organized a seminar titled “Nano-satellites and the New Space Race” with the aim of introducing students to Nano-satellites and space exploration opportunity available to them. The seminar was divided into two sections. The seminar was presented by Md. Ajwaad Zaman Quashef and Nazmul Hassan, currently final year undergraduate students of department of EEE, BUET. They shared their experiences from attending a 3-weeks long hands-on training camp on “Assembly, Integration and Testing of CubeSats” that was organized as an event under the APSCO Student Small Satellite (SSS) project (Link: http://www.apsco.int/). The camp was arranged by Shanghai Jiao Tong University (SJTU) in Shanghai, China for which the two participants were nominated by SPARSO through the Department of EEE, BUET.
A Q&A session was organized, from 6:35 to 6:50 pm. The participants asked about the difference between their prototype and an actual cube-satellite, their scopes on contributing to the future of Nano-satellites in Bangladesh etc.
Finally, a group photo was captured. The event ended in 7:00pm. All the participants were given refreshments.
