It is a great pleasure and honor for me to serve as the Director of the Institute of Information Technology at Jahangirnagar University (IIT-JU). The Institute began in 1987 with the mission of training individuals in computer-related skills. It launched a bachelor's degree program in information technology in 2009 with the clear goal of meeting the cutting-edge demands of the information technology industry.
The Institute is committed to cultivating an environment that fosters innovation, creativity, and excellence in its students. At IIT, we are strong advocates of interdisciplinary research and development that benefits both industry and society.
We strongly encourage our students to go the extra mile by developing new skills and honing existing ones, a trait that can only be attained through the relentless pursuit of excellence. We are confident that all of our efforts will culminate in significant achievements in the broader academic lexicon. Our efforts in all branches of ICT, we hope, will produce fruitful results in academic innovation, top-tier journal publications, citations, and technology developments.
IIT places a strong emphasis on collaboration with academic institutions and the information technology industry, both domestically and internationally, to maintain its position at the forefront of technical education in this region. At the same time, we are working on infrastructural development to ensure that the students have access to cutting-edge facilities. We are proud of our alumni and their accomplishments, which have enabled them to make significant contributions in the ICT industry, government, and other sectors both domestically and internationally.
I believe it will unleash its potential to accomplish great things in the future.
