Scientific Visit for Mechanical Engineering Department’s Students to the Shoqaik Steam Power Generation Plant

In the practical application framework of the theoretical study, the students of Mechanical Engineering Department, Faculty of Engineering, King Khalid University attended a scientific visit to the Shoqaik Steam Power Generation Plant under the supervision of Dr./ Baiumy El-Assal and Eng./ Waleed Saeed.

The visit was very useful for the students, where they had seen most of the parts that they learned in the Power Plants course.

In the start of the visit Eng./ Ahmed Al Qarawi (Manager of Technical Support) held a meeting with the students, explained some important information about the plant and gave them some advice about how to take the advantage of their time before and after graduation. Also, he explained the model of the whole plant in detail. Then, Students were accompanied by engineer/ Abdelaziz Aal Saleh (Chairman of Planning and Materials Department) on a tour in the station. He introduced a detailed explanation of all the station components from the beginning of the water intake from the sea and the various stages of water purification processes. A Brief Explanation for the water pumps and their types and the RO desalination units, that has had an effective impact on the gained information for students. Students also watched all the Power Plant components of boilers, fuel systems, burners, and turbines.

At the end of the visit Eng. Khalid Bani Sarh (Manager of the Plant) held a meeting with the students where he welcomed them, thanked them for the visit and talked about the importance of linking education to industry and then presented them with souvenirs from the station.

 

 

  Important Announcement for College of Engineering Students: Summer Semester 1441-1442 You will find the summer semester schedule at the College of Engineering for All departments: Through the following links Mechanical Engineering Civil Engineering Electrical Engineering Chemical Engineering Industrial Engineering    
  The College of Engineering and the Education for Employment Community (EFE) are looking for a way to collaborate for the training and development for the students. The Faculty of Engineering represented by the Dean of Engineering, the faculty Vice-Dean and the head of the Specific Initiatives and Quality programs initiated a meeting with The Education for Employment Community (EFE) represented by its director Abdullah Al-Ghamdi to boost the training and development program for the college of engineering students to provide them with an opportunity of direct employment. The dean of the College of Engineering explained that this initiative will nurture the skills of the students of the Faculty of Engineering and fit them towards the goals of the Kingdom's 2030 vision, especially from the labor market perspective.    
  In cooperation with Shell, the College of Engineering provided a training course for college students titled: The international Program Nxplorer Under the auspices of His Excellency the Dean of the College of Engineering Dr.  Mohammed Khaloofah Al Mesfer, the Training Unit of the College of Engineering, in cooperation with Shell, presented the international program Nxplorer to 57 students, from all departments, for three days 16-18/6/1441.  The aim of the training program is to provide the trainees with the ability to use creative thinking mechanisms in creating effective solutions that can be applied to local problems related to the environment, food or energy. The program focuses on defining the link between food, water and energy, and building awareness, developing knowledge, and providing tools for thinking and complex problem-solving skills for future leaders.  The NXPLORERS program relies on the use of a unique blend of three approaches: Systematic thinking: It is a framework for seeing the larger picture rather than seeing isolated parts. Scenario planning: ask 'what-if' questions to explore alternative perspectives on the future and find reasonable stories about it. Change theory: a methodology of thinking imagining how and why a particular change is expected.  Merging these methods into one program creates a new way to look at the complexities and challenges that exist in society, and it shows young people how to deal with the complex challenges facing society, now and in the future.    
  The seminar will be presented by Faculty members: Industrial Engineering Department Dear All, As per the part of the initiative in the faculty members Teaching-Learning Process, the Industrial Engineering Department is pleased to invite all the Faculty of Engineering to attend the Seminar on Tuesday 18/02/2020. Seminar Title: Decision Making College of Engineering, Building A/1/145 Time: 12 - 1 PM Faculty members' involvement is highly encouraged and students are more than welcome. Presented By: Dr. Mohammad Qureshi    
  In cooperation with Shell, the College of Engineering offers two training courses for college students - First entitled: The International Program Nxplorer, from 06/16/1441 AH to 6/18/1441 AH from 4:30 to 9:00 PM. - The second is entitled: Entrepreneurial Projects Management, from 01/07/1441 AH to 07/03/1441 AH from 4:30 to 9:00 PM.   The training program aims to give the trainees the ability to use creative thinking mechanisms in creating effective solutions that can be applied to local problems related to the environment, food or energy. It focuses on defining the link between food, water and energy, building awareness, developing knowledge, and providing thinking tools and complex problem-solving skills for future leaders.
