UGC’s new website launched
31 December 2015, Nirapad News: State Minister for Post, Telecommunications and Information Technology Zunaid Ahmed Palak today said a dynamic, smart and interactive website is now imperative for education and research to keep pace with developments in the 21st century.
“Students, teachers and researchers should uphold the country before the global community through use of an uptodate website,” he said this while speaking as the Chief Guest at a launching ceremony of UGC’s new website (www.ugc.gov.bd) in its auditorium.
UGC’s new website will revolutionise the education and research in the country and at the same time, educational institutions including public and private universities with updated information would be able to play significant role in building digital Bangladesh, he added.
UGC Chairman Professor Abdul Mannan presided over the funcion while UGC Members Professor Dr Mohammad Yousuf Ali Mollah, Professor Dr Dil Afroza Begum and Professor Dr Syed Akhtar Hossain, Head of CSE Department, Daffodil International University were Special Guests. UGC Secretary Dr Md Khaled delivered the welcome address.
Palak said Post, Telecommunications and Information Technology (ICT Division) Ministry is interested to work with UGC in different areas of Information and Technology, especially in establishing digital virtual university.
UGC Chairman said higher education has gained momentum in Bangladesh over the years but the country could not project properly its achievements before the global community due to not updating the web portals of the country regularly. A dynamic, smart and interactive website will create a new horizon in the field of education and research, he hoped.
Representatives from Education Minstry, Post, Telecommunications and Information Technology Ministry, IT Experts from universities and officials from UGC and Higher Education Quality Enhancement Project, among others, were present on the occasion.
