Independent University, Bangladesh (IUB) has distributed laptop computers among 83 of its faculty members. The initiative was sponsored by Mr Abdul Hai Sarker, Chairman of IUB Board of Trustees and Chairman and CEO of Purbani Group. The laptops were handed over to the faculty members on Monday, April 25, 2022 at a program in the IUB Auditorium in the capital’s Bashundhara Residential Area.

With this, IUB has now given laptops to all its full-time faculty members. This follows the first tranche of laptops given to a number of faculty members in October 2021 which was sponsored by the Shahed Khalek and Major Salek Bir Uttam Trust and facilitated by the then chair of the IUB Board of Trustees Mr. A Matin Chowdhury.

At the program, Mr Abdul Hai Sarker said, “Technology is a very important contributing factor in the present world no matter which discipline you are studying in. In order to keep up the good name of IUB as one of the leading private universities in the country, we therefore need to equip our faculty members with teaching materials such as laptops so that they can provide the best quality education.”

IUB Vice Chancellor Tanweer Hasan, PhD, said, “IUB has an exceptional Board of Trustees, and their unwavering commitment to make IUB a center of excellence shows in their active engagement with the University community.”

IUB Trustee Towhid Samad, Pro-Vice Chancellor Prof. Niaz Ahmed Khan, PhD, and Dean of IUB’s engineering school Prof Yusuf Mahbubul Islam also spoke at the program. IUB Trustees Md Tanveer Madar and A Quaiyum Khan were also present among others.
