Kazi Rafiqul Alam, President, Dhaka Ahsania Mission and Chairman, AUST Board of Trustees advised the students in his speech and said Though you are going to leave AUST being engineers, you must remember the contribution of the teachers who have imparted you quality education. Achieving degree is meaningless when someone fail to be good and honest in life. So you need be careful of that before starting your career with job.
Prof. Dr. A.M.M. Safiullah, Vice-Chancellor said This is the memorable day of your life. You have worked hard during this time frame of 4/5 years here in AUST to achieve your first degree. After that you will find a real life where you need to be successful. You may become rich or powerful but that does not mean that you will be treated as successful in life. You have to target an aim in life. So, from this moment fix your target in your life and plan to achieve it. The job Market is now globalized and to get a better job you have to compete with the skilled people at home and abroad. So be ready to accept the challenge from this moment.
Prof. M.H. Khan said, The day we are passing is the day of your celebration as you are going to be engineers soon. You have enjoyed a lots a freedom here in the recent past four years. But remember when you start your career, you will find the life challenging where freedom will be restricted. You will find a vast way which has no end. You will have to go on with the strength of your achieved wisdom, discipline and skill."
