Hands-on Arduino & Robotics – Daylong Series Workshop

A two-day, hands-on workshop on Arduino and Robotics is going to be held on June 20-21, 2019.
This event is brought to you by IEEE BUET Student Branch in collaboration with IEEE Robotics & Automation Society Student Branch Chapter. Get your very first experience to interface hardware with software using Arduino. An effective learning experience on Arduino through multiple Arduino projects is going to be the primary focus of this two-day workshop. Freshmen are expected to be highly benefited from this workshop.

Date: June 20-21, 2019
Time: 9.00 am to 5.00 pm
Venue: ECE Building, BUET.

*** Seats are limited. Complete your registration and confirm as soon as possible. ***

The workshop can be attended by forming a team of two students. Being an IEEE member will help reduce the registration fee as follows:

50% IEEE member: BDT 2500
No IEEE member: BDT 3000

** There will be an early bird discount for those who will register in May 14 or 15 from IEEE BUET SB Membership booth at Plinth, ECE, BUET.

** Early Bird discount! **
50% IEEE member: BDT 2000
No IEEE member: BDT 2700

Teams with IEEE members will get preference in the selection process.
