I found that ULAB was one step ahead. Not only the teachers from my department (Computer Science & Engineering) but also from the other departments were very helpful. They worked to make the classes interesting and interactive as well. Moreover, their doors were always open for the students’ welfare.

“The library of ULAB had been one of the greatest resources for us. It was well arranged and had a rich collection of books. Apart from academic books, there were story books, biographies, books on poems, CDs etc both in Bangla and English. The students could also access to a section of the library for listening audios as a part of their courses.

“Being a student of CSE, I have spent most of the time in the computer labs. All had adequate number of up-to-date PCs. There were also labs dedicated to students for programming and software development. Wi-Fi connections were available all over campus.

“ULAB always emphasized extra-curricular activities. I was a member of ULAB Computer Programming Club. We practiced programming under a professional trainer. The club also facilitated the students interested in contests like national programming and cyber gaming contests.

“Our admin were very supportive and almost always had solution to our difficulties. They were always very active in working in due time. What I found good in ULAB is, in spite of being a big university, it continues to be well disciplined and maintain a congenial environment for both students and faculty members.

ULAB was a golden period of my life. I had the opportunity to meet great faculty members, use state-of-the-art lab facilities, enjoy excellent educational resources and also participate in diverse co-curricular activities. The well-structured GED courses and the chances to take minor or optional courses from other departments truly reflect the notion that ULAB is ‘liberal’. I had the chance to participate in many events which helped shape me as a professional, and also improved my interpersonal and communication skills. In the end, I would like to say that I owe a lot to ULAB and I always recommend it.

Nowadays as I am working in a multicultural environment – where I need to make critical decisions, manage people with different mindsets, achieve goals within the allocated time and resources, and plan for the future – I often ask myself what was the triggering agent that drives and guides me to be a ‘professional’ of this global world. Although there are multiple answers, I would always put ULAB at the top of the list, because of the solid foundation I received during my time there. I would consider ULAB as a complete package for its students, with ingredients from academic learning along with the blend of Liberal Arts, the excellent culture of learning and innovation and of course the co-curricular activities. As ULAB CSE has equipped me with all the necessary instruments, now it’s my turn to fly to my limits and identify my destiny.
