I obtained Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Telecommunication Engineering from Daffodil International University, Bangladesh in 2007 with good academic records and started my career as Lecturer of ETE department at the same institution. Later on, I completed my Masters of Electrical and Telecommunication Engineering from North South University. Currently, I am serving my beloved university as an Assistant Professor of the ETE department and pursuing my PhD in mobile health technology in Sains Islam University, Malaysia. My research interests are different Algorithm Design and Mobile Health.
I was class representative (during studying at DIU) and used to solve others students’ academic problems. I closely worked with my teachers to do different research works which made me academically confident in teaching career. The adoption of new technology and innovating system for students is ensured at DIU so that students and others can be in touch with the advancement of technology and become relevant in today’s challenging business environment. These new technologies created the opportunity and environment for me to learn more and provide better teaching for my students.
The convocation ceremony was the most precious day for my life. I joined my convocation ceremony with my parents as graduate and also a newly joined faculty member. My suggestion to students is “Learn something new every day. As a student, you are constantly learning with the goal of graduating. Graduation may mark the end of your formal education but you will still be learning and reflecting upon your prior experiences.”
Daffodil International University is now widely recognized for the quality of its undergraduate and postgraduate educational programs, the effectiveness of its research and outreach programs, and the broad access to the university provided through the innovative use of information technology. As an alumnus faculty member, I feel proud to be part of this great journey.

I have found throughout the journey of my life that a successful career cannot be established over the night. Proper Planning, focused goal and clear dedication together are the heart of any success, only if all sorts gradually can improve the throughput.
The years, I traveled through an uncertain destination, thinking about what to do which let me identify life as “Life is an extreme struggle to survive in this world”. There is no chance to find a social reputable life without a plan rather its creation. Thousand times I had lost myself from my tracks and plans but never let my life, be controlled or dominated by the unfortunate conditions. I was determined to my goal and promised myself that I must rule my miserable days and overcome any obstacle. Yes, today I am going to share with you how I transferred a failure life to success…
I had completed my graduation in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering (ETE) from Daffodil International University (DIU). I was not born with a golden spoon in my mouth. Besides the miserable reality of my family, I made a disaster in my Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) exam. An unexpected poor result totally made me stop dreaming of something special for my career. I was started ignoring by all of my family members, friends, and neighbors for the poor results. I absorbed all negative comments which reacted inside me as the light of powerful sparks to enlighten me very humbly and positively…
In consideration of my HSC result, it was quite impossible to get admitted to a public University with a good subject though I had been dreaming of a career in the Telecommunication industry. At that time, I was immensely impressed by the excellence and reputation of Daffodil International University. I sought all information out about Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering (ETE) program. Considering all types of facilities and standards, finally, I took admission to Daffodil International University in ETE, though there was a dissatisfaction worked inside me about my friends’ chances in BUET, DU, and so many public Universities.
Day one in my University life was so much surprising and amazing to me for the wonderful directions about the study and career plans by the teachers/ professors. My confidence and mindsets started rebuilding up after meeting the uniqueness of my University about teaching-learning management & extra-curriculum activities nationally and internationally. I realized that “Allah has made a surprising right turn in my life” when I had found all top public Universities and colleges’ professors were taking my classes.
From the beginning, my dream was big and I’d determine inside me to challenge the hardest competitions. Accordingly, I beat all of some national level completions. I and my team won the Gold Medals two times in the “National Cisco Skill Competition”. I still proudly share my gratitude towards some important persons in academic life who would empower my motivations for active participation in the study and career goals. Professor Dr. A. K. M. Fazlul Haque, Associate Dean and Director of IQAC, DIU, Dr. Md. Nadir Bin Ali, Joint Director-IT, DIU. Finally, and of course, I should mention the name of Dr. Md. Sabur Khan, the Chairman, Daffodil International University, was my hidden motivation because his speeches and lifestyle made me more keen and focus on career-goal through the development of necessary skillsets.
End of the graduation, I instantly joined my first job in AKTEL as a Network Engineer since I was recognized as a skilled and certified candidate. Gradually, I created a lot of winning stories working with many brands like Huawei, Grameenphone IT Ltd (Telenor), Accenture, and a lot of world-leading brands.
I, now a proud citizen of Bangladesh, am upholding the national flag of Bangladesh as the Technical Head of Network Operation Center in Kuwait Army where I am leading a team of 70 members including Military and civil engineers. During taking care of the national network and security of Kuwait, I worked together with a number of leading military organizations in the world. As a member of the DIU Family, I feel proud when I meet a huge number of proud alumni who are leading different international organizations worldwide.
