A Brief Intro
In case you do not know, my name is Adnan Quaium.
I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of American International University of Bangladesh (AIUB). Before that I was a Lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering in Ahsanullah University of Science and Technology (AUST) for about two years.
I have a Masters in Electrical Engineering from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science of Technical University of Delft (TUD), in The Netherlands – which means, theoretically, I am an engineer! My specialization area in MSc is the telecommunications. I completed my Bachelor degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Islamic University of Technology (IUT).
Well, that is all about me in a nutshell. Not bad as an intro, I think! If you are not satisfied with this brief intro and if you have time to spare then you may want to read the rest of the “Me & Myself” in the following part!
A Not-So-Brief Intro
If by any chance, you are not satisfied with my brief intro, well… here comes the Not-So-Brief one!
Who am I?
I am Adnan Quaium. Just a handy tip – if you ever want to find me in the world wide web, just google the keyword ‘adnan quaium‘ – all the results that Google will return are actually pointed to me!
What do I think of myself?
“Nobody is perfect in this earth…and I am that Nobody!” … Just joking. Actually I am on the theory of “Know Thyself”… always meeting a new of Me… everyday! I don’t know myself completely yet. Confused? So am I! But I can assure you one thing, if you ever have an intention of meeting an actually average person who is neither apathetic nor emotional… neither brilliant nor dumb… neither obtrusive nor quiet… neither so bad nor so good… neither handsome nor a mirror-cracking material… then I am the perfect example!
What am I doing?
Currently I am doing my PhD research at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) in Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET). I am also an Assistant Professor at the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) of American International University of Bangladesh (AIUB).
What did I do earlier?
I was a Lecturer in the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) in Ahsanullah University of Science and Technology (AUST) for about two years.
What was my education background?
I completed my Master of Science degree in Electrical Engineering from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, Mathematics and Computer Science of Technical University of Delft (TUD), in The Netherlands. I obtained my Bachelor degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering with Honors from the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering at Islamic University of Technology (IUT). Looking further back, I passed my HSC (Higher-secondary School Certificate) exam from Notre Dame College (NDC), with the major in Science under Dhaka Board of Education. I obtained my SSC (Secondary School Certificate) from Ispahani Public School and College (IPSC) in Chittagong, with the major in Science under Chittagong Board of Education.
What are my achievements?
- Degree of M.Sc. in Electrical Engineering (Telecommunication track)
- Degree of B.Sc. in Electrical & Electronic Engineering awarded with Honors.
- OIC granted full scholarship for 3 years of undergraduate study.
- Best Student Award in the school.
- Junior School scholarship (Talent Pool category).
- Primary School scholarship (Talent Pool category).
Where do/did I involve?
I was an active member in Notre Dame Computer Club of Notre Dame College from the year 2000 to 2002. I was a member of IEEE IUT Student Branch from 2003-2006. Recently I am a life time member of Islamic University of Technology Alumni Association (IUTAA). I am also involved with Ubuntu Bangladesh LoCo Team. Currently I am a member of Ubuntu as well.
Apart from that I am a member of The Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh (IEB) as well.
What is my home location?
I was born in Chittagong, the most beautiful city of Bangladesh, probably the most beautiful city in the whole world. I’ve visited a number of cities in different countries, but none of those have a mere chance to stand beside the lovely Chittagong. Though we moved to Dhaka and live there permanently, I still miss Chittagong. So right now, my home location is Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh.
