A group of students made their individual paper presentation on various topics like Smart City, the role of Electrical Engineer, Sludge Treatment Process, Illegal Data Cloud etc. Each topic primarily shed light on different aspects of electrical or environment sciences and computer ethics etc. One of the student from Assam Don Bosco university responded “we want to show how companies do use illegal data bases and how it can affect our privacy”. Also a group of students displayed their model on subjects like Sea-Wage Collection Treatment & its distribution. The makers of the model, Riya Paul, Nipa Paul and Salma Begum explained “ we want to re-assert the necessity of 3Rs which means reuse, restore and recycle to make our environment more bio-diversity prone”. Another group presented their model on shell-structure and clarified “ its uniqueness lies in its specificities like light-weighted, capable of carrying impressive strength and holding heavy structure”.
