President Abdul Hamid has stressed on the need for taking an initiative to build the young generation as skilled human resources with science and IT knowledge.

He made the remarks while addressing the fifth convocation of the Bangladesh University of Professionals (BUP) at Mirpur Cantonment in Dhaka on Monday, reports UNB.

“The 21th century has thrown various challenges to us at the national and international levels. We are facing intense competitions and there is no alternative to develop skills in order to survive in the competitions. 

"We have to take initiatives to make our young generation skilled and knowledgeable in science and information technology,” the president said. 

President Hamid further added that it is extremely important to put emphasis on science education in addition to humanities and business from the elementary level to the higher one.

Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina declared Vision 2021 or Digital Bangladesh in view of the global context, he said adding, “I believe, we will be able to build ‘Digital Bangladesh’ by making the new generation skilled in information technology.”

Stressing on the need for turning students into skilled human resources for Bangladesh, the president emphasized profession-oriented education as this has become essential in this competitive world.  

He also underscored the need for taking education programs in line with the demand of the job market.

Praising the initiative to publish the book "Bangabandhu: A Profile in Leadership" focusing on life and works of Bangabandhu on the occasion of Mujib Borsho, the president said such research is really praiseworthy. 

Although BUP is a new university, it is making relentless efforts to provide quality education, Hamid said lauding its activities. 

A total of 1,778 students received degrees at the convocation. Twelve of them were awarded Chancellor's Gold Medals for their outstanding performances while 22 received Vice-Chancellor Award.

The BUP began its journey on January 5, 2008 as the 30th public university in Bangladesh.
