The explosive growth of microelectronics and communications today introduces new technologies to the world every day. Keep tracking these technologies to get the technical know-how is hard, but applying the theoretical knowledge, freely and joyfully, will inspire the student to improve their skills with other students of similar interests and learn about these technologies. We propose, like many top international universities as well as national universities, the “Club of Hobby Electronics” to meet this demand. CHEF gives the students a through foundation in the basic and intermediate principles of electrical and electronics engineering and provides them with hands-on-skills and experience of the practical aspects.
It has been said “Technology is best when it brings people together and make the world much better.”
To motivate the initiatives of the students for implementing practical electronic projects.
To improve the practical skills as well as the software skills of the participated students.
To stimulate the teamwork attitude.
To encourage the students to participate in national and international competitions in this field.
All of these objectives have a positive effect in forming the graduates of the Faculty of Engineering and Technology, Future University in Egypt.
What is CHEF?
CHEF is an association allows the enthusiasts to share their hobbies. It offers the members a scope to apply their skills, learn about new technologies with other students who share similar interests. It includes the design, customization and usage of electronic components, software tools and equipment to solve real problems in an interesting style. This can be done through weekly tutorial and practice session. In the tutorials, student will gain skills and knowledge about new component, tool, circuit, etc. In the weekly practical sessions the student will be able to use any available component, part, tool, kit or development board to build anything with them. One more activity is to build a project and participate in national and international competitions and to attend hobby electronics meetups.
By end of each semester each group will have their own designed projects. The topics covered in CHEF include, but not limited to, electronics, wireless communications, hardware, microcontrollers, sensors, Arduino, embedded programming, robotics and renewable energy applications.
If you are engineering student, either electrical engineering or preparatory year student, or faculty staff, you are welcome to join CHEF, just contact Eng. Ahmed Saeed ([email protected]
Student will easily catch up the tutorials and practical sessions regardless of when she/he decide to join.
