Bangladesh Rural Electrification Board
I was a student at Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering and passed the degree of MSc BUET is our pride. It plays a multidimensional role in the development of Bangladesh. Wherever we look at engineering advancement we can see there is BUET’S involvement with its students. The students of BUET have hands in power, mineral resources, roads bridges, culverts, buildings, schools, colleges, offices and other infrastructural and structural developments. BUET graduates have special contributions to the development of power mineral resources, water and in different other sensitive areas of engineering and technological advancements, Besides, whenever the nation or the administration faces any difficulty in finding out solutions to any sensitive or emerging technical issues, the BUET is offered to give the opinion or the solution. In different ways, the roles and contributions of BUET in Bangladesh are highly notable. It has been possible only due to our engineering skills. Most of the engineers working in the power and IT sectors are the students of the Faculty of EEE. So the role and contribution of this faculty as well as its students in these sectors are very significant.
If I speak of power sector, I can say most of the engineers and the chairman of BPDB/ BREB/DESCO are from the students of BUET. Electricity is the prime-mover of all developments. Whatever development we have achieved in this sector is the output of BUET engineers.
Even, in mechanical, electrical, electronic, computer and in other fields, BUET graduates are contributing remarkably. BUET engineers are playing a leading role in every sector of field in Bangladesh. Today the number of BUET graduates are spread across the world and even in many developed countries of the world, BUET students are playing a role in their developments and engineering and technological education. Nowadays in Bangladesh there are a number of engineering and technological universities in both public and private sectors. They are also producing engineering graduates. By this time, CUET, RUET, KUET and DUET students are also currently making some notable contributions to the development of Bangladesh.
However, today to make the engineering and technology education more pragmatic knowledge on English, Bengali, Social Science, Economics, Management and Accounting is very essential. Without knowledge on these subjects, proper planning and implementation of any project is very tough. BUET is already teaching all these subjects. But, more emphasis should be placed on all these subjects so that a technical graduate can be an all rounder to properly handle his job as both an engineer and a boss. When Bangladesh is emerging as a tiger in South Asia, we shall require supplying more power and energy to implement this slogan in real sense of success. I hope the EEE Faculty of BUET will have a vigorous role in this regard.
