A comprehensive report on Publication Reward 2014 Ceremony of IUBAT

IUBATInternational University of Business Agriculture and Technology (IUBAT) has rewarded faculties of different disciplines who authored research oriented articles on core socio-economic issues which came out in international journals. The university, through a formal Publication Reward 2014 Ceremony, recognized the academic excellence of  old and new scholars  through a ceremony rewarding them in the form of cash money and certificates.

Number of selected authors was allowed to present the essential aspects of their research papers before the audience. The recipients, mostly authors/first author or jointly  attended the scholarly ceremony with enthusiasm and exuberance.

IUBAT is the pioneer

IUBAT is the pioneer of rewarding faculties in such a befitting manner for  their excellent publications in international journals. The university rewarded 8 faculties on the first occasion held in  2013. This being the  second year, university has awarded another 49 faculties author faculties  at a recently organized  “Publication Reward 2014 Ceremony”.

Dr Engr Abu Z A Saifullah, Chair, Department of Mechanical Engineering, who headed the evaluation committee and  rigorously examined  each and every articles submitted for rewards said  there has been 600 time increase of  candidates in 2014  compared to 2013.  The increase of candidates is the product of all-out efforts  being made by the  university for human resource development.

The output of the published articles has added new dimension in resolving problems in relevant areas. Speaking on the occasion, some authors were of the opinion that policy suggestions incorporated  therein  would help policy makers  to address problems  for facilitating socio-economic transformation leading to  growth and development in the country.

 Foundation Celebration

“Publication Reward 2014 Ceremony” was a part of Month-Long 24th Foundation Celebration of IUBAT began on January 16 and ended with a grand closing ceremony on March 15, 2014. The celebration is a yearly program composed of variety of academic and extra-academic programs to showcase the excellence in core areas of academic operations.

Chief Guest lauded IUBAT

State Minister for Women and Children Affairs, Begum Meher Afroz Chumki, M.P, attending as the  chief guest  lauded IUBAT  for  attaining resounding success .  The academic excellence marked by quality teaching with innovative curricula in line with the practices of universities in developed countries helped produce quality  graduates to face the global challenges at home and abroad.   IUBAT  has been marching ahead  and already became one of the few top most universities in private sector,

Praising  Prof. Dr. M Alimullah Miyan, she said  pragmatic academic policy  stressing on research  with  continuous endeavour to link higher education more and more relevant to  society  is an intellectual approach developed by him.  All these helped  the university to earn reputation from guardians, academics, civil society and members of academic bodies and institutions and other stakeholders, she maintained.

Collaboration

It has  developed  internal facilities by establishing labs of various discipline to help dissemination of advanced knowledge and technology in line with global changes. IUBAT library, continues to become a modern library leading to  be an an archives for keeping  every excellence of   university’s operational activities, he detailed.

The striking features of the focal point  of  this university is  its  strong pledge to  build  knowledge based society and to this effect , Education Extension Center  with active collaboration of faculties officials and members of staff have been endeavoring to  reach every thana, upozila and villages to create one technical graduate. Meanwhile, there has been representation of students from every thana except 4 in the body of students, saying this the Vice Chancellor maintained that efforts  will be continued to  reach each village  in the country for creating technical graduates,

Essence of the Published papers

The nominated articles comprehensively dealt core socio-economic problems with explicit professional insight and vision. The old and new professionals applied their senses, wisdom, perception, intellectual acumen to reach at a an academic conclusion. The research articles  have embodied both theoretical as well as practical aspects thereby  exposing problems in relevant areas with appropriate suggestion. Authors highlighting the cardinal objective of their exploration requested the Chief guest to bring those to the notice of highest echelon of the government so that the policy makers in the country could take into account the findings in crafting their decisions to resolve problems in related areas.

Papers on Engineering by Engr. Md. Abul Bashar and Others

Engr. Md. Abul Bashar, Coordinator, Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and   Sobuj Kumar Ray, faculty in  a joint  research publication  entitled “Two Ways of Rotating Freedom Solar Tracker by Using ADC of Microcontroller” explored the modality of using  solar trackers  for improving electric power radically through photo voltaic panel using different sensors.

The sensors retrieve the solar radiation in a simple method to use low cost micro controller based solar tracker in two ways. The methodology based on right positioning of photo voltaic solar cells during sunlight in day session will produce maximum power.

The tracking system is developed with two direct current motor operated by PIC16F72 micro controller sensors (LDR). The internal ADC-analog to digital converter with Fuzzy logic will send correct information to motor controller IC-LM392D. The operation of the  motor will help the  panel  to  rotate  in  two ways, both horizontal and vertically directed motion.

The paper depicted the comparison  of conventional solar follower pond and trucking system with two ways maintaining  rotating freedom. The tracking controller based ADC of the micro controller set up on the solar tracking system has light depended resistors to determine the maximum sun light intensity. The designed solar tracking power generation system can track the sun light automatically.

Firstly, data has been taken from stationary solar panel, and then from trucking solar panel during three different days. The stationary panel gives  total 114.75 W power consumption per day and the average power generation per day and the average power generation by tracking panel is 157.86 W per day.

Authors, making critical analysis of data have shown that tracking panel 37 % higher efficiency.  Although, the tracking system is costly than the stationary system but for long time use, it  is more superior to meet future energy demand in the country.

Experimental work has also been carried out carefully by the authors. The result showed that higher generating power efficiency is achieved by using the solar tracker with two ways of rotational freedom, Engr Basher clarified.

Authors expressed the belief that policy maker of Bangladesh can decide to install “Two Ways of Rotating Freedom Solar Tracker by Using ADC of Micro controller “with a online grid inverted. If  the policy makers at the highest echelon of the government decides to implement  Two Ways of Rotating Freedom Solar Tracker by Using ADC of Micro controller, the nation will be largely benefited , the research group expressed their confidence.

Speaking on behalf of the group, Engr Basher underlined that the policy suggestion put up by them will mark a positive impact on the general consumer. If implemented the explored suggestion, the country will be able to   increase large quantum of solar power generation to ensure socio-economic growth and development in Bangladesh, he concluded.

Suman Chowdhury and others

Suman Chowdhury, Mohammad Mahbubur Rahman,Pritam Mitra, Utpal Kanti Das and Md Abul Basher in their jointly contributed paper, “A comparative study for evaluation of power performance  of Building Integrated Photovoltaic  Application in Bangladesh” observed that 4.60% power improvement  could be  made possible  at the temperature level of 34 degree C when tilt/azimuth angle is varied from 1 degree/ degree weather, it is 3.96% for the tilt/azimuth angle change of (“/ 0” to 2 degree to 0 degree

 Anmona Shabnam and others

Anmona Shabnam Pranti,Arif Mohammed Shahed Iqubal, Mohammad Shawkut Ali Khan and Mohammad Kayesar Ahammed , faculties  jointly crafted the  papers for publication  focused, detailing that  Bangladesh is richer than many other south Asian countries in terms of  energy reserve. They were of the view that proper management of primary energy and electricity could help the nation to produce sufficient electricity for domestic use. This way the country can could move ahead  in their stride for  solution to scarcity problem.

Import from India will be unfavorable

Mentioning electricity as an essential element in modern living and key of economic and social development, the authors said paucity of gas supply always emerged as the main obstacles in electricity management.   They, however, were critical against electric trading from India , saying that any such decision Bangladesh will not be in a  profitable  condition since India will not bear the expenditure. Bangladesh will have to bear huge cost for commissioning all necessary   infrastructure to import electricity from India, authors viewed critically against such decision.

Import from Myanmar profitable

 Import of electricity from Myanmar would be more advantageous for Bangladesh, saying these authors of the papers emphasized on extraction of coal energy. They concluded that Bangladesh, should try to utilize its own resources to ensure better power management instead of going for power import.

Debazit Datta and others

Another group of  scholars, Debazit Datta and Bimol Kumar Datta in their contribution “Empirical Model for the Estimation of Global Solar Radiation in Dhaka, Bangladesh” proposed the coefficients for Angstrom-Prescott types of model for the estimation of global solar radiation in Dhaka. They recommended for using the relative sun shine duration alongside the measured global solar radiation data (1983-2010).

Dr. Anil Chandra Basak: Harbal Medicine

In his publication on “The Role of Medical Plants in promotin g public health in Bangladesh” Dr Anil Chandra Basak, Faculty, College of Agricultural Sciences, termed South and South-East Asian Region  as the area having the tradition of herbal treatment  since old days long gone by. Describing the  abundance  of medical plants in Bangladesh, he recalled  the old tradition  in this part of the world about  Ayurvadic, Unani or Homeopathic drug practices. He viewed that time has emerged to revive to the old practices which is more and more safe system of treatment based on herbal methodology. The conscious section of Bangladesh society have to make u-turn  for reviving the age old herbal treatment process, saying this  he expressed his belief that  herbal medicines are  almost   free and does not have  side effects and  also less harmful for the  users, he advocated.

 Dr Basak in his comprehensive presentation, highlighted the usefulness of medical plants, saying that those plants contain substance which could  be used for therapeutic purpose. Those plants are precursor for synthesis of useful drugs, mentioning this, Dr Basak  disclosed that  developed country like  Germany has been using herbal medicines most of which are based on medical plants. The policy makers  in  Bangladesh  need  to emphasize on herbal treatment, mentioning this, he called for   adopting positive  decision in this direction( for greater use of herbal drugs) in the best interest of the society, he  sounded   compassionately.

Dr Farjana Sultana : Disease of food plants

Dr Farjana Sultana, Faculty, College of Agricultural Sciences presenting synopsis of  her publication entitled “A comparative screening of hybrid, modern varieties and local rice cultivar for brown leaf spot disease susceptibility and  yield performance” emphatically said  ‘food is the most basic necessity for  the human being all over the world’. There is no practical substitute for food those are mostly derived from plant; she mentioned that plant diseases of varied nature affect every crop plant round the year, in all countries across the globe, she added.

The damage of crop plants by diseases is a severe threat to food production across the world, saying this she was of the view that food processing industries worldwide have been facing serious problems.  Thus, producers involved in e production, distribution and different services connected with food have to incur huge amount of financial losses, if  food plant diseases multiply seasons after seasons.  she maintained.

Terming ‘Rice’ as the world’s most important food providing crop, which are also the regarded as major  source of calories and protein. Besides, rice is the regular staple food for more  than half of the world’s population, she elaborated.

Dr Farzana preferred resistant cultivar methodology which is more effective, economical and eco-friendly strategy for crop disease management to ensure sustainable growth of agriculture necessary for smooth food supply, she explained.

Expressing critical view about major symptoms of various infectious diseases, she   termed those as causative factors for multiplying crop damage at different stages. Infection is a part of natural development process of plants, saying this she viewed “Brown spot  (Cochliobolus miyabeanus)  is  the  major disease of rice  plants. This can affect rice plants at stage of its life cycle. The disease is most destructive at seedling stage. Small, circular, yellow brown or brown lesions girdle ‘coleoptile’ distort primary and secondary leaves and cause seedling blight.

The great Bengal famine in 1942 occurred due to this seedling blight when approximately two million people died from starvation, detailed this she was of the view that  devastation of   crop   accompanied by other reasons  which  mounted the sufferings of men, women and children. That historic incident is known as heroic tales of human suffering in the history of this region  she detailed with facts, figure and pictorial presentation.

Contradicting experts’ view on yield increase through hybrid rice, Dr Farjana  said hybrid cultivar WR96,  is  mostly  susceptible to brown leaf spot out of five rice cultivar ( one hybrid (WR96) three medium ( BR16  BR 26 and  BRRI Dhan 27) tested for the response to brown spot of rice where as local modern cultivar BR16 produced the highest panicle length, number of grain per panicle and grain yield per hectare.. Moreover, hybrid cultivar WR96 produced the highest percentage of spotted grain per panicle and seed yielding C. miyabeanus, and also the lower percentage ofseed germination, while the reverse was observed in local cultivar Pari. Dr Farzana Sultana analyzed.

Demonstrating the result of five cultivars, tested  in the process,  she said chemical protective measures  have been proved wasted , This is more and more production costly and many a way affects destructs environment.  She recommended local cultivar Pari variety, which iseast infected by brown spot disease. Moreover, Pari variety is also lowest grain yielder she made professional comment.

The concluding remarks   of Dr Farjana were marked by cautionary steps stressing on some precautionary measures. Giving more priority on maintaining   optimum food supply she underscored the need of establishing reasonable   sustainability in agricultural sector for protecting   the human race  in this mother Earth.

Swapan Kumar Saha

Swapan Kumar Saha, Faculty, CBA in his paper “B2B Marketing Mix Impaction Asia pacific region” publication of said B2B transactions is always considered as the modern foundation in trade affairs across the world. The magnitude of such transactions surpasses in any other forms, saying this he maintained that B2B transactions play a significant role in modern trade and commerce in 21st century.  The future of B2B is promising but there are some ongoing and upcoming challenges in the process. Adoption of the system would many way benefit Bangladesh in terms of trade, he pointed out.

“The Comparative Study  on sales and Marketing in South Asia Pacific Region” crafted by IUBAT academics, Swapan Kumar Saha, Mohammad Mahbubur Rahman, Chandan Kumar Sarkar and Summan Chowdhury, dealt marketing and sales  showing the difference of activities  between the two. Terming sales as the train where as marketing is the headlight of the railway, they concluded

Drs. Chandan Kumar,Sarkar

Drs. Chandan Kumar,Sarkar Faculty, Economics, in his paper “The Vanishing People and Vanishing Community – A Case Study in Bangladesh” detailed the life cycle of the ‘Beda’ community  focusing their culture and hard livelihood marked by life of a  moving generation. He portrayed their breaking hopes, aspirations , tragedies and pathos  accompanied by  lots of sufferings having no  such social  status and recognition whatsoever.
