Two Scholars Reunited

Dr. A.F.M.Saiful Amin, professor of Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology, paid a courtesy visit to Dr. Hiroki Yamaguchi, President of SU on August 1.  Dr. Amin, in fact, graduated from SU with a PhD degree in Science & Engineering, and Dr. Yamaguchi was his academic supervisor then.  Dr. Amin now coordinates a joint project supported by JICA and JST.

Dr. Amin’s visit of this time is to start up the project supported by JICA and JST.  Also, the timing coincides with the renewal of the agreement between BUET and SU concluded in March 2011, so he carried the new agreement, signed by President Yamaguchi’s counterpart, with him during his visit.

Their reunion after a long time was filled with exchange of talks on lives of researchers and their present situations. Dr. Amin promises, ‘I will visit SU again as frequently as possible.’

SU has accepted more than 20 students for Master’s and Doctoral Programs from BUET so far.  Two graduates, who received degrees from SU, have been already contributing to the field of human resource development for their nation.
