Solar-electric car by IUBAT students

Four student innovators Nazmus Sakib, Md. Irfan Uddin, Md. Fazle Rabbi and Yaqub Arafat developed the car as part of their B.Sc. final research project under the supervision of Dr. Muammer Din Arif, senior lecturer in the ME department. The concept car was driven inside IUBAT’s expansive and scenic campus in Uttara, Dhaka and was filmed by media personnel. After the demonstration, the VC of IUBAT, Prof. Dr. Abdur Rab addressed the distinguished guests and delivered a short speech on the importance of developing renewable energy based vehicles to mitigate the dangerous pollution in Dhaka city. The key speaker was Md. Shahidul Azam, Assistant Director of Bangladesh Road Transport Authority (BRTA) who observed the test drive of the car and commented that it was inspiring to see IUBAT involved in applied research for societal benefit and suggested that government-university collaboration should be developed to support and commercialise such green technology as part of the modernisation vision of the government.
