Webinar on “E-Waste management"

A webinar on e-waste management was organized by the professional student chapters  of the department of Mechanical and Industrial engineering, College of Engineering, National University of Science and Technology on 22nd March 2021 at 09.00 am, for the benefit of the student community.   This webinar was presented by one of our University Alumni Engineer Karima Saud Al-Raaisi, projects manager at Beah, Oman Environmental Services Holding company. Engr. Karima Saud Al-Raaisi has vast experience in E-waste management and worked at various positions at Beah, Oman.

The webinar covered the various aspect of E-waste management including current and future projects related to e-waste handling in the sultanate of Oman.  The webinar covered in details on classification of the different types of e-wastes and the statistics on the e-waste generation in Oman for the last 10 years.  Engineer Karima also highlighted the hazardous nature of e-waste and the challenges involved in e-waste management. It was a highly informative session for the benefits of the student’s community and society.

More than 70 students and staff participated in this event. Professor Ahmed Al Balushi, the Dean of, College of Engineering inaugurated the webinar and delivered a message to the student’s community that the disposal of e-waste is to be properly done with due care to safeguard the environment and the society. During this event, the Dean has initiated and announced a campaign on E-Waste collection point at College of Engineering. To this effect campaign will drive students and staff to voluntarily drop off their e-waste in the safe and secured place designated at the college campus and the College will then take up the responsibilities to hand over the same to Beach for further processing.  This is one of the joint initiatives of the college taken up with Beah and the main idea of this collection point is to enhance awareness amongst staff and students about e-waste management on the campus thereby encouraging environmentally sound recycling through the collective effort of all.  Further Prof Ahmed also added that this initiative will be replicated in other campuses of the university.  Professor Ali Al Bimani, the vice-chancellor of the university also attended the online event and stressed the need for e-waste management and encouraged the activities through joint collaboration with Beah.  He also added that such joint initiatives will enhance the academia and industry relationship and aid in developing a sustainable society.
