It is a pleasure for me to be associated with the University of Development Alternative (UODA) as a Professor & Dean, Faculty of Engineering since January 2012.
There are two departments such as department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) and the department of Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering (ETE) under the Faculty of Engineering. BSc in CSE and ETE have been offering since 2002. MSc in CSE has been offering from 2012. Department of EEE will be started soon in the faculty.
Modern world is based on ICT and most of the countries have been rapidly developing through implementing applications of ICT in due time.
Our country is also improving in all the sectors through the use of modern digital technology. All the manual works have been transforming very rapidly through the use of Digital Technology. Meaningful, reliable, accurate and relevant data have been collecting and processing in all the sectors at a very high speed to obtain information. Those are transmitting, communicating and receiving in all sectors and desired places in the world. We are sharing world's resources staying at any place in any time within a few seconds. We are able in taking right decision using correct information.
So we have been using ICT in all the sectors such as e-business, e-education, e-banking, e-financial transaction, e-transport, e-poverty elimination, e-cottage industry, e-information for rural and urban people, automation and control systems in garments, medicine, health, food, agriculture, power sectors transport, construction, communication, etc.
In order to implement ICT in all sectors successfully we need thousands of a thousand trained manpower.
A person with a sound knowledge of ICT can earn even a million dollar per year staying at any place in the world.
At UODA we are providing dedicated teachers, good laboratory and infrastructural facilities. Besides, we provide lecture sequences and lecture modules before beginning the courses of each semester.
Our teachers are providing additional helps if a student wants to learn more about a course. Most of our former students have been working in many reputed organizations in home and abroad. Some former students are doing higher studies leading to MS and PhD in home and abroad.
Application oriented projects are given to final year students and are guided by highly experienced professors in the fields. Internship facilities in some organizations are arranged for the deserving final year students of CSE & ETE. We are extending our all possible help and cooperation to produce real skills in the field of ICT to meet a fractional part of national and international demands.
