Anik Chowdhury Tapu :: Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman University of Science and Technology (BASHEMURBIPRABI) has been merging with the Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) and the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (EEE).
Students of CSE and EEE departments of Sheikh Hasina ICT Institute, a part of the university, are observing the sit-in program wearing black clothes.
Students of the CSE and EEE departments of the Sheikh Hasina ICT Institute, a part of the university, have been holding sit-ins on the second floor of the administrative building since Sunday (January 18th) morning.
Meanwhile, Reshma, a student of CSE department, said that in the 2018-19 session, we were admitted to Sheikh Hasina ICT Institute, which is part of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman University of Science and Technology. But from the beginning we have been cheated. At first we used to take classes in rented classrooms in Shivchar. Later, after the resignation of the then VC Khandaker Nasir Uddin, we returned to the campus. But even then we are cheated.
“We used to take classes in two abandoned classrooms on campus with white boards and markers,” he said. Although the new university administration initially assured us of their demands, they have now made it clear that only one batch of us will be graduating under the institute and no new batch will be admitted later. And that is why our demand to the administration is to add us to our own department. Because there is no other organization in Bangladesh where only one batch comes out from one organization. So we demand to accept our logical demands.
Asif, a student of the EEE department, said that earlier when we were protesting, the administration had called our movement logical and promised to include us in its own department. But now they are denying the matter. In protest of this, we are holding a sit-in protest today. In addition, if our demands are not accepted, more drastic steps will be taken.
In this regard, the Vice-Chancellor of Bashemurabiprabi Professor. A. Q. M Mahbub said, “Since they have been admitted to this university, their responsibility is definitely ours and they will not face any problem in completing their graduation.” I have already told them to go back to class and participate in the test.
Regarding the future management of the activities of the Sheikh Hasina Institute, the Vice-Chancellor said the final decision in this regard depends on the Regent Board and UGC.
Incidentally, the Sheikh Hasina ICT Institute was temporarily set up in Shibchar, Madaripur from the 2018-19 academic year due to the short-sightedness of former Vice Chancellor of the University, Professor Khandaker Nasiruddin. Where about 100 students are admitted in ETE, EEE and CSE departments. Of these, six students of the ETE department were merged with the ETE department of the university but the students of the remaining two departments were not integrated.
