On October 25th and 26th, 2017, Association of Students of Faculty of Electrical Engineering Sarajevo „STELEKS“ held the festival of student's project entitled "Sarajevo Innovations Festival 2017". The festival was addressed to students of Electrical Engineering and similar faculties in BiH, and the theme of work covered all areas of Electrical Engineering including Electronics, Automation, Energy, Telecommunications and Information Technology.
Professional evaluation of the projects was carried out by the commission consisting of professors and assistants at Faculty of Electrical Engineering and International Burch University. All projects that entered the selection are published in the Conference Proceedings and will have an opportunity to be presented on IEEE Student and Young Professional Congress 2017 at International Burch University, in Sarajevo.
IEEE Student and Young Professional Congress 2017 is a platform for ongoing collaboration, allowing students and young profesionals to think creatively, develop new ideas and work with the IEEE global community to realise their dreams. Through a variety of technical and non technical workshops, industry lectures from global experts, professional networking and social events, students and young professionals will create new contacts, erase ethnic boundaries and develop collaborative relationships with industry in Bosnia and Herzegovina and around the world. Creativity, imagination and technology have no boundaries. With this congress, the IEEE together with the students and young professionals will demonstrate commitment of empowering and inspiring the next generation of engineering and technology leaders, who will play a pivotal role in helping Bosnia and Herzegovina flourish.
The excellent fourth place was won by our students Nermin Đuzić and Dalibor Đumić with their project called „Automatic Plant Watering System via Soil Moisture Sensing by means of Suitable Electronics and its Applications for Anthropological and Medical Purposes“. The second place went to our Dalibor Đumić and his mentor Prof. Dr. Jasmin Kevrić, with his stunning project called „Arrows System – Brain-Controlled Wheelchair“ while the first and the third place went to graduate students from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering Sarajevo. Besides Burch University and Faculty of Electrical Engineering Sarajevo, the festival was attended by students from Electrical Engineering Mostar and East Sarajevo. Our students Jasna Nuhić, Lejla Imširović and Tarik Ibrahimpašić were also participating and they will present their projects together with Nermin and Dalibor on IEEE SYPC 2017.
The Festival was a great opportunity for presenting the students' work, where every participant at their stand presented their project to visitors of the Festival. It gave a great opportunity to the students to connect with other students and businessmen, share knowledge and experiences.
