The 2nd promotion of the engineering students of the National University of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics of Abomey are defending their end of training thesis. A total of 46 candidates have been defending their research work, some as interesting as others, in front of eminent members of the jury composed of professionals and specialists in engineering work in Benin since Thursday 15 December.
A day of celebration and joy for both students and their families. Indeed, 14 students from the National School of Mathematical Engineering and Modelling (ENSGMM), 23 from the National School of Energy and Process Engineering (ENSGEP) and 09 from the National School of Public Works (ENSTP) have been working since yesterday in front of juries to present the results of their research. It is the defense of the end of training thesis of the 2nd promotion of Unstim’s engineering students. Spread over three days, the work started this Thursday and will end on Saturday 17 December 2022.
Thus, for this first day, the 14 students of the ENSGMM worked. According to Dr Moussa Djibril Aliou, coordinator of the ENSGMM training programs, these students are very versatile and have worked on various interesting and topical subjects. “Of the 14, we have at least eight different areas that they have worked on. Whether it’s mathematics or laboratories, whether it’s applied mathematics or modelling, they are everywhere,” he said.
Excellent and Very good mentions
Among the research topics that caught our attention, we have “Study and implementation of mathematical models for the realization of men’s and women’s cuts in high fashion”. A theme supported with excellent mention by the student Goussi Gaspard, who has set up an application to help dressmakers in the realisation of the cuts. The jury recognised the scientific and technological interest of his work, especially at a time when the Beninese government is struggling to build a textile industry in the country.
At the same time, Raïssa Tchibozo Houéssou defended her engineering thesis with honours on the theme “Traffic prediction of 2G mobile networks for the optimisation of energy consumption: case of MTN Benin”. For the presenter, it was a question of how to reduce energy consumption at the level of the GSM operators’ stations and how to reduce the emission of CO2 into nature. After evaluation, the jury found his work very interesting as the major challenge today is the preservation of the ozone layer.
Another student by the name of Vitouley Marcos Thyrbus has designed a drone for taking pictures in a cotton field. His dissertation, which was appreciated by all the members of the jury in view of the current digital revolution, was awarded an Excellent rating.
These different results testify the quality of the work done at UNSTIM. However, the university has introduced a plagiarism control system for dissertations. “LUNSTIM is a thematic university that deals with very specific subjects. To this end, we can also understand that the subjects can only be innovative because it is on new bases that the university starts to define the themes,” convinced Dr. Logbo Harrod, teacher-researcher at FAST Natitingou.
“I can see that the training my son has received is not at a discount. Through his presentation, I discovered many things”, testified Goussi Gaspard’s father before affirming that he was comforted. “What I spent until today with what I followed earlier, there is a rag that went over it and comforted me because I forgot the sorrows,
It should be noted that the 46 students come from the three engineering schools of Unstim and have done a total of five (05) years of study including two (2) years in preparatory classes at the National Institute of Preparatory Classes for Engineering Studies (INSPEI).
