From the Desk of Pro-Vice-Chancellor
Dhaka University of Engineering & Technology (DUET), Gazipur, being an excellent tertiary and higher-level academic institution with its commitment to quality education and advanced level of research, has earned excellent reputation in producing quality graduates in various fields of engineering and science. The university is one of the important component in Bangladesh to the reflection of the country’s national aspiration and dream. It is expected that this renowned academic institution will work towards producing the quality graduates who will dedicate themselves to make the country great by braving the challenges of the century. DUET is also known worldwide for its stellar learning performance. However, we have to aim to be not only the leading institution for knowledge-dispersion, but also world class leader in knowledge-creation. We have always had students and faculty members who are capable of doing world class research, as is evident by the placement of our alumni in various positions in renowned universities and industries of the world.
As the Pro-Vice-Chancellor of DUET, one of my missions will be to work with the university-team to transform it into one of the top-ranking universities of Bangladesh and enhance its international stature. We are committed to realizing the vision and mission set out by our government under the guidance of the Honorable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina to transform Bangladesh into a developed country. As per the national strategic plan, DUET prioritizes rigorous study and cutting-edge research in matters of engineering and science. Our endeavor is focused on creating a congenial and comfortable zone for our promising young learners and install in them the values of engineering & scientific excellence, ethical perspective and orientations in applied science. With this aim in mind, we need to systematize the academic and administrative activities by building capacity of our current faculty and staff and recruiting promising researchers and administrative staff. It is my firm belief that by encouraging fellow-feelings, dynamism, fluidity and progressive thoughts we will be able to enhance the dignity and prestige of DUET and safeguard out best national interest in the modern world.
