In addition, users can add reviews to the application helping other tourists with their endeavor while staying at Sulaimani city.

Students Win Top Positions at Engineering Competition

Four groups of students from AUIS mechanical and construction majors displayed their final capstone projects that ranged from sustainable construction designs to surveillance robots. The projects were supervised by Dr. Ashty Qazzaz, chair of the AUIS engineering department. The two groups in construction category won the first and second positions, while one group won the third prize in the mechanical/electrical category. The fourth group that participated in the mechanical/energy category also won the fifth prize in that category. “It was great to be able to see all these projects and the creativity and ability of engineering students from all over Kurdistan,” said Dr. Qazzaz, who was one of the judges at the event. Commenting on the success of his students at the competition, he said, “It was one of the most memorable moments of my academic life and I am very proud of the students. It was made possible by their hard work and support from all their instructors.” Such events are very useful for networking and forging links between universities and the local industry and business sector, he added. The winning projects included: Design of Sustainable Pavement Using Local Recycled Material Position: First Category: Civil/Construction Lare Arif, Lina Soran, Miran Nawzad This project aims at designing sustainable asphalt by reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP). The goal is to construct a new asphalt pavement from old aged binder layer increasing both performance and strength, and by combining old useless asphalt with new material such as rubber. Using reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) has emerged due to economical savings and the need for more protected environment. The main purpose of this project is to investigate the use of (RAP) in the pavement industry in Kurdistan Region. The project laboratory results shows that the asphalt mixed with RAP at 25% to 45% with 0.5% of rubber provided better performance compared to the new HMA mixture. The cost benefit analysis shows at least 44-50% savings in cost related expenses. Ways to Increase Concrete Strength with Maximum Profit Position: Second Category: Civil/Construction Kashma Saman, Alla Saeed, Khabat Abdullah, Kani Kamal This group tested the quality, strength and workability of concrete using different variables. The trials included using different ratio of water to concrete (W/C); using different types of aggregate of different locations to see the behavior of concrete under compressive load that is applied to it; and using different admixtures to observe the effect on the strength and the workability of the concrete. Besides these qualities, the project also considered the economic impact of each trial on concrete.   Spy and Surveillance Robot Position: Third Category: Electrical/Mechanical Brusk Awat, Ali Hasan, Diako Radha, Halbin Faeaq The group built a robot that helps soldiers in dangerous military missions and reduces the number of losses. The robot is designed provide the video of the area, detect any metal that the robot faces, measure the distance between the robot and the obstacle, and explode itself when the robot reaches the hand of the opponents. Energy Generation using Speed Breakers Position: Fifth Category: Mechanical/Energy Meer Abdul Rahim, Yad Swara, Snoor Omer, San Hawdang, Karo Jamal The number of vehicles on the roads are increasing very rapidly. Worldwide there are about 1 billion cars, and the number is expected to reach 2 billion within the next 20 years. The group tested the idea of harvesting potential energy from this daily movement  produced by the vehicles and converting to electrical energy via rotational motion of the speed bumps. This can be used to produce electricity for powering basic applications on the roads such as streetlights and traffic lights etc.

IT Capstone Display

The IT department is holding its capstone projects demonstration on May 17th in the AUIS Conference Hall. Presentations will be held from 10:00 am until 1:00 pm. All members of the AUIS Community are welcome and encouraged to attend.
