STQC was established in year 1980, and started its services in the area of Testing and Calibration based on the need of small and medium sized electronic industry in the country. From a mere Testing, Calibration and Quality Assurance Support to Electronics Hardware Sector, STQC has positioned itself as a prime Assurance Service Provider to both Hardware and Software sectors.

In order to provide state of art technology based quality assurance services to its valuable clients and to align with DIT mandate-to focus on IT sector, STQC has established infrastructure and developed competent scientists to provide quality assurance and conformity assessment services in IT Sector in addition to testing and calibration related services.

After the Demo Class, the students were separated into three groups and Visited different sections of the Organization as mentioned below:
1. Electronics and Electrical Testing
The testing of various products and systems to assure the quality, safety, and security is a measurement assurance practice, to verify the compliance to the international and national specifications.

Electronics and Electrical Testing
• Component Testing
• Equipment System Testing
• Environmental Testing
• Safety Testing
• EMI/EMC Testing
• Explosive Atmosphere Compatibility Testing
• Opto Electronics Testing
• Solar PV Testing
• Reliability Testing and Analysis
Software and System Testing
• Software Testing and Assessment
• Software Process Assessment
• Information Security Testing and Assessment

2. Calibration
Accurate measurements play a vital role at each stage in development and production of quality product. The effectiveness of quality control steps depends directly on the accuracy and confidence with which the test & measuring instruments (TMI) can yield test results. Thus systematic and periodic checking of Test & measuring Instruments is very essential for reliable measurements. The process of periodic checking of TMI by comparison with another instrument of better accuracy is termed as Calibration.
STQC offers calibration services to industry and organizations in the following domains :
• Electro Technical Calibration
• Non Electrical Calibration
• High Precision Calibration
• Onsite calibration
• Medical Equipment Calibration

3. About STQC Trainings
STQC facilitates the requirement of industry through conducting and organizing the public training programs and onsite customized training programs. STQC Trainings are mostly oriented for Working Professionals. Most of the trainings are of short term duration ranging from 1 day to 2 weeks. In addition, STQC labs/Centres (ERTLs/ETDCs) also offer Skill based Trainings related to their area of test and calibration services on need basis.
At the end of the industrial visit and experiencing real working space and the environment of Testing. This visit gave the students a chance to experience and learn what cannot be gained during lectures or tutorials.
It is rightly said that “See & know’ is better than ‘read & learn’. Students have got real feel of company’s working after this visit. They got a chance to transfer their theoretical knowledge to practical implication. This will even help students to understand subject matter clearly in future also.

We would like to extend our gratitude to company for permission and support they gave to make our visit a success with accomplishment of objective and also we would like to extend our gratitude to the management of LIET for encouraging us for organizing such Events.
