This is Narayan Ranjan Chakraborty, Assistant Professor, Department of Computer Science and Engineering, Daffodil International University. At present, I am working as a PhD research fellow in the Center for Integrated Emergency Management (CIEM) lab in Department of Information Systems at the University of Agder (UiA), Norway. My major research focus is how technology can help respondents during the emergencies. He is also interested in security and privacy issues of social media data. I completed both my B.Sc. and M.Sc. in Computer Science and Engineering from Daffodil International University in 2009 and 2011 respectively and was also awarded “Chancellor Gold Medal” award for outstanding academic achievements from the Honorable President of the Peoples Republic of Bangladesh.

DIU provides me the platform to nurture my passion by facilitating the quality education, opportunity of extracurricular activities, training programs, seminars, workshops etc. While studying at DIU, I always maintained a good relationship with my teachers. I am so lucky that I got a few faculty members who continuously inspired me to get involved in teaching and research. Their active guidance helped me to choose ‘teaching’ as a profession. The academic environment of DIU is excellent. The recent development of research facilities is also very inspiring. Teaching and Research assistance, student exchange program etc. are very inspiring initiatives for fresh graduates to fulfil their dream.

If you want to make your footprint in this 21 st century, you need to be highly skilled (technical, soft skills and others) in every aspect of your career. From the very beginning of university life, decide what you want to do after your graduation and do whatever you need to achieve that goal. Always keep in touch with your mentor and follow their guidelines. Currently, DIU is a top ranked university in Bangladesh and I hope by maintaining strong research culture and other academic and administrative activities, DIU will achieve and sustain prestigious position in world university rankings. I always feel proud to be an active member of this family.
