The Office of Industrial Relations under IUB’s School of Engineering Technology and Sciences organized a day-long event titled “SETS Networking Get-together" on June 11, 2022 at the Dhali’s Amber Nivaas resort in Munshiganj near Dhaka.
The event was mainly organized to collectively brainstorm on how to better build industry-academic partnerships. All faculty members and administrative staff of SETS participated in the session that explored avenues of collaboration with the industry. They also took part in team-building activities and developing future plans.
Professor Yusuf Mahbubul Islam, Dean of SETS, did a presentation on the ideas submitted by the faculty members prior to the event regarding Industry-Academia Collaboration. Small groups comprising two faculty members selected one idea from the thematic presentation to expand and create action plans on. A pair discussion and brainstorming session was conducted to draft the action plans.
The faculty members also discussed and developed a draft mission and vision for the SETS. The event was also used to officially introduce the Office of Industrial Relations and declare the Eligible Industry-Academia Leadership Award for the faculty members of SETS. Eligible faculty members have been invited to self-nominate themselves stating the collaboration outputs achieved.
