This technical seminar was organized by IEEE NSU PES Student Branch Chapter in collaboration with IEEE PES Bangladesh Chapter, where we had invited one prominent Executive Engineer of Power Grid Company of Bangladesh (PGCB), a government enterprise to talk regarding the job placement or practical engineering field. This technical seminar focused on the required knowledge for a fresher or want-to-be power engineer, which will be needed to operate and maintain different power production unit and distribution companies of Bangladesh-both public and private. Several mega projects of government also require power engineers to be engaged in the field level, where an extremely knowledgeable person will be required.
