Me & Myself

A Brief Intro

In case you do not know, my name is Adnan Quaium.

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 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).

Apart from that, I am a Bangladeshi and I am proud of that. I was born in Chittagong, the most beautiful city of the world. And I am a part of the most amazing family you’ve ever seen.

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!

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?

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)

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.
