1 Engineering students of North South University showcased their graduation projects combining academic knowledge and innovative skills by making hybrid car. This showcase was not just about completing an academic course; it was also a final stunt for engineering students leaving the viewers in sheer excitement. Among the projects there were swarm bots, smart baby monitor, fun going tricycle, smart cargo, solar projects, and so on. The programme was held in the plaza area in NSU, on 8th December. What brought the students, faculties and guests into an amazing shock is a hybrid car, which was developed and designed extensively in detail. The car was designed and made by the team of four backbencher engineers who were a lot into cars, and envisioned a necessary change to the wheels. Their supervisor--- lecturer, Asif Reza mentioned, "There is talent in every student; we have to let their big ideas come to reality, which will not only boost their confidence, but also make everyone's life a lot easier." The design wasn't just lightweight and smart, it was aerodynamic and precisely made for car loving people. This two-seater car can run on both the traditional combustion engine and battery powered electric motor. Front wheels are run by engine, and back wheels are run by the motor giving the driver amazing scope to go from 'Sports' to 'Hybrid-Economic' to 'Full Electric' mode using the app designed for this car onboard with the help of a touch screen tablet. This car has an efficiency of 31km per litre of fuel, and the team is working to exceed 50 km per litre of fuel. Team leader Taha Sanwar and other members---Anindya Biswas, Shahriar Khan, and Shafkat Uddin Chowdhury wishes to continue this path of automobile engineering for future career. The team and their mentors Ashraf Rehan, and Tahzib Mashrik wish to bring this hybrid model a reality for everyone. As the CNG prices are increasing and new conversions are at halt this self-recharging hybrid car will revolutionize your daily city commuting pretty soon.
