Students of Electrical and Electronic Engineering department (EEE) of Rajshahi University on Tuesday formed a human chain protesting against the administrative decision of changing the name of department into the Applied Physics and Electronic Engineering department (APEE).
They formed the human chain in front of the university’s central library at around 12 pm. The students alleged that if the two departments are combined, they will have to face different problems. Notable, a face off situation has been created on the campus since the second week of November after students of two departments raised demands that are contradictory to one another.
Students of Applied Physics and Electronic department are carrying out a movement, holding protest programmmes and boycotting classes and examinations from November 11, in demand of changing the name of their department into Electrical and Electronic Engineering department.
On the other hand, students of EEE department are also holding different programmes from November 20 following the issue as they are not agreed to convert their department into the Applied Physics and Electronic Engineering department.
