I am delighted to know that Sonargaon University is going to hold its first convocation on April 13, 2022. On this auspicious occasion, I would like to congratulate the graduating students and their parents as well as the university authority, faculties and administrative staff for their relentless effort for organizing this event.
University is the seat of higher learning that imparts quality education and conducts research for creating new knowledge and innovation. Higher education sector in Bangladesh has made considerable headway over the years, particularly in the field of technology. It is important for the universities to enrich their curricula and research activities in line with local and global needs. I am glad to learn that apart from many conventional subjects of humanities, commerce, law, science and engineering, Sonargaon University offers such naval architecture and marine engineering to meet our emerging needs. I urge upon all the universities to change their focus and redesign their objectives so that they become potential source of critical manpower.
The convocation is a precious moment for the graduates celebrating the culmination of their strenuous pursuits of study with glory and greatness. For graduates it signifies the recognition of years of hard work and marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter in their lives. I hope the graduates of Sonargaon University will make the best use of their diligence, knowledge and skills to achieve competence in their respective field of study and build a happy and prosperous Bangladesh. I wish the graduating students a very bright future.
I wish this first convocation of Sonargaon University a grand success.
Joi Bangla Khoda Hafez. May Bangladesh live forever.
Mohammed Shahabuddin Chancellor Sonargaon University
