Mechanical Engineering Department Scientific Seminar Title: Biodiesel From Direct Transesterification

  Mechanical Engineering Department Scientific Seminar Title: Biodiesel From Direct Transesterification It is a well-known fact that energy consumption is rapidly increasing due to population growth, the higher standard of living and increased production. A significant amount of energy resources are being consumed by the transportation sector leading to the fast depletion of fossil fuels and environmental pollution. Biodiesel is one of the technically and economically feasible options to tackle the aforesaid problems. Biodiesel may be produced by various methods however; biodiesel prepared from Direct Transesterification has reduced reaction timing and acidic value for biodiesel produced besides improved yield.

Seventh Scientific Seminar for Engineering College organized by Electrical Engineering Department, 1441 H

  Seventh Scientific Seminar for Engineering College organized by the Electrical Engineering Department, 1441 H A Seminar was hosted by the Electrical Engineering Department titled “Speech as a Biomedical signal using Artificial Intelligence” was Presented by Dr. Mohammed Usman Farooq for the Faculty of Engineering on Wednesday 20/11/2019. The seminar was attended by all Chairman’s, faculty members and students from the college of engineering. The presentation focused on the diagnosis of speech for both resting state and post-physical activity state to serve as a signal in detecting heart-rate. The detection and classification were accomplished using the Mel-frequency cepstral coefficients (MFCCs) which were used to train and test with various algorithms using machine learning (ML) to achieve promising results. At the end of the presentation during the Q&A session most of the faculty members placed queries which added to the main goal of the seminar i.e., the Teaching-Learning Process. Finally, all the chairman’s and faculty members praised Dr. Usman for his contribution and efforts in making the seminar fruitful.

Scientific Visit to Wastewater Purification and Treatment Station

   Scientific Visit to Wastewater Purification and Treatment Station   A group of students from the Department of Chemical Engineering visited the Abha wastewater purification and treatment station on Tuesday, 05/11/2019. Within the framework of the program, field visits are conducted for each semester under the supervision of Dr. Arshad khan. The purpose of this visit is to identify the existing sewage systems as well as the stages of wastewater treatment and the components of the treatment station. The wastewater treatment and purification station in Abha, the central station, has been operating for more than 30 years, in accordance with the 40000 m3 wastewater treatment system. This station operates a tertiary treatment system that allows safe irrigation for palm trees. These waters are analyzed on a daily basis. The results of these analyses show the safety of the treated wastewater that flows to Wadi Bisha. The basic operations of the wastewater are explained until they are processed, first by using a special panel composing the station components with engineering drawings. After, we visit the site and monitors all the stages of the treatment, and these by explaining the physical therapy to biological treatment and to pumping treated water into drainage channels outside the station. Then, Engineer Abdel Mohsen Sayed present new created environmental laboratory and the water analysis can be realized. At the end of the visit, and by the accompanying doctor, Chemical Engineering Department expressed their thanks and gratitude to the engineers who are supervising the station for useful and valuable information that promotes the scientific method and the integration of the educational process.
