Message from the Vice Chancellor
Professor Dr. Syed Mansoor Sarwar
University of Engineering and Technology is an institution which has always nurtured its students to set and achieve lofty goals by providing them the freedom to polish their skill set through curricular and co-curricular activities. A commendable product of such eﬀorts and skills is Elektron, a magazine by the Department of Electrical Engineering, produced by the student chapter of IEEE, UET Lahore. Elektron reﬂects the creative minds of the students of Electrical Engineering and their abilities to breathe life into their innovative ideas.
To make this magazine a constant source of guidance and inspiration for the masses, the work done by the team Elektron is indeed worthy of appreciation. The eﬀorts put forth by the team Elektron should serve as a motivation for other students of UET Lahore to embark upon similar initiatives. I wish them best in their future endeavors.
Message from the Chairman
Professor Dr. Muhammad Tahir
The aphorism “publish or perish” asserts the importance of publishing scholarly work by the faculty and students. The Department of Electrical Engineering, historically, has been highly reputed for its outstanding undergraduate program. It has never been more important to involve undergraduate students in research. Publishing the work carried out by undergraduates has always been a challenge, due to the lack of availability of a proper forum for this purpose. This is no more a limitation due to the introduction of Elektron magazine. Elektron team has put an extensive eﬀort to make the idea a realization. Elektron provides an excellent opportunity for both undergraduate as well as graduate students to publish their work. I believe this initiative will go a long way and will be pivotal in deﬁning the careers of many.
Message from the Editor in Chief
Dr. Muhammad Salman Fakhar
Students at the pre-university level are often curious about opting for their areas of professional education. However, it is observed that the students at those levels do not have access to the relevant knowledge to help make their minds taking suitable decisions.
Electron magazine is an eﬀort of the department of electrical engineering of UET Lahore, to remove this knowledge deﬁcit of the pre-university students. Especially, this magazine is an attempt to provide some knowledge about both the foundations and advances in the domain of science and engineering, in general, and electrical engineering and its applications. The link between religion, philosophy, and science is another relevant area of study, published under the scope of this magazine.
Other than helping pre-university students, Elektron is also publishing articles to enhance the knowledge of students of electrical engineering, professional scientists, engineers, especially, electrical engineers and computer scientists, and other readers interested in learning and knowing about the foundations and advances of science and engineering.
