Technical Seminars Focus on NDT and ISMS

IEEE-Oman section on its continuing commitments to keep its members and the professional community at large abreast with the fast evolving technologies organized two technical seminars focusing on the  latest developments and challenges in the area of Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) and Information Security Management System (ISMS) in industrial environments.

The seminars took place at the renowned National Oil and Gas Exhibition Center of the Sultanate of Oman on 9th of October 2012. They were conducted in cooperation with the Oman Society of Engineers (OSE) and in partnership with TUV Rheinland, one of the leading global providers of technical, safety and certification services.

Mr. Anil Kumar, in-charge for TUV Rheinland business stream industrial services for West and North India regions, presented some of the pre-service and in-service plant inspection methods using the most advanced non-destructive testing techniques.

Dr. Ing. Oliver Weissmann, Vice President for Information Security of the TÜV Rheinland AG, tackled a very interesting topic that outlined all the mechanics of an information security management system directly applicable in industrial environments.

The event culminated with the awarding of the token of appreciation to the two invited expert speakers by Dr. Muhammad Bin Aref Abu-Zaki, one of the board members of OSE representing the transportation and communications sector and Dr. Ahmed Al-Naamany, IEEE Oman section Chairman.

The event was well received and attended by IEEE professionals and student members from various companies, colleges and universities all over the Sultanate Oman.
