Farhana Afreen Proma
With a view to interac with stakeholder industries, students of the department of Industrial and Production Engineering (IPE), BUET took part in a 3-day long "2nd BSLF (Bangladesh International Export Services and Logistics Fair) 2006" under the banner of IPE Alumni, BUET. The fair was held in Hotel Sheraton from 17 to 19 August 2006. The fair also incorporated TEXTECH EXPO '06 and MACHINE EXPO '06.
The students focused on the application of IPE in Logistics Industries. Like in many other countries, logistics industry is a sector with great potential in Bangladesh . This sector needs to be explored by Industrial and Production (IP) Engineers who can contribute immensely.
Participation in such an event was very effectual in order to showcase IPE education and to establish the importance of this new breed of engineers. IPE Alumni Stall received enormous positive response from the visitors. They tried to convey their message to logistics companies such as MAERSK Bangladesh Limited, ABX International etc.
The participants exhibited multi media presentations, video, flyers and publications on IPE applications. They also presented the positions and contributions of IP Engineers in local industries.
The fair was a fabulous success and hopefully, IP Engineers created a good impression. As it was a Business to Business (B to B) fair and mainly Garments and Textiles Technology, Machinery were being exhibited, quite a number of executives from this sector visited the stall. Visitors also included entrepreneurs, business consultants, engineers and students. They expressed their views on, problems with and expectations from young IP Engineers.
IPE is a relatively new discipline in Bangladesh. It blends engineering with business studies and management. This, in the context of Bangladesh, is of utmost importance for the proper operation and efficient expansion of any industry. This discipline requires widespread promotion to introduce and establish its importance in the industrial arena of the country. This awareness needs to be created for the sake of the industries themselves, so that they can provide more from less. Being a society of vibrant and educated youths, IPE Alumni, BUET is continually working to represent and promote BUET IPE in Bangladesh. The participation in 2nd BLSF was one such approach in their efforts towards bridging the gap with stakeholder industries.
