CEEECoM Project Activities
In October 2023, two faculties from the Department of Electrical Engineering, Jigme Namgyel Engineering College, Royal University of Bhutan (JNEC-RUB) embarked on a staff mobility initiative organized by Aalto University in Finland and Tallinn University of Technology (TalTech) in Estonia. This mobility was an integral part of the Capacity Enhancement in Electrical Equipment Condition Monitoring and Fault Diagnostics (CEEECoM) project, funded by European Union.
Throughout the two-week program, spanning from October 10th to 24th, our faculty members actively engaged in various activities, primarily focused on laboratory training, equipment identification for procurement and the conceptual identification modules which can be developed for JNEC-RUB. These activities were meticulously designed to furnish them with valuable insights and expertise in the field of monitoring electrical equipment conditions and diagnosing faults. The overarching objective was to amplify their proficiency in this area, aligning with the goals of the CEEECoM project.
Their participation in this program furthered the broader agenda of the European Union’s Erasmus Plus program, dedicated to fostering international collaboration and bolstering educational capacity. The emphasis placed on laboratory training and module development highlights the pragmatic and educational dimensions of their training, ensuring that the knowledge acquired can be effectively applied and disseminated within our department. This dissemination aims to benefit both faculty members and students alike.
Additionally, three students from JNEC-RUB are set to journey to Aalto University in Finland and Tallinn University of Technology (TalTech) in Estonia starting December 2023. During their time in Finland and Estonia, these students will participate in collaborative project work, internships, and capacity-building activities.
Meetings and Workshops:
Moreover, the project coordinator for the CEEECoM project at JNEC-RUB attended workshops, meetings, and site visits as part of the CEEECoM project in Kathmandu and Pokhara, Nepal, from November 5th to 10th, 2023. These events primarily focused on attending a needs analysis workshop involving stakeholders in Nepal, reporting and following up on project deliverables, and comprehending the industrial site conditions in Nepal. Similar events are scheduled to take place in Bhutan toward the end of March 2024.
