Dhaka, July 11 (UNB) – Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid on Wednesday urged the students to build themselves as worthy citizens equipped with technological knowledge to face the emerging global challenges.
“Conventional education system has failed to build modern people…it’s only the technological education that can help build skilled manpower,” he told the inaugural session of a two-day DU IT festival organised by Dhaka University IT Society at the Teacher Student Centre (TSC).
Speaking as the chief guest, Nahid said the traditional educational system has to be modified for rapid development of the country. “It’s the age of internet… the students must use IT to acquire global knowledge,” he said.
Nahid said the government is trying to bring all the universities of the country under the IT network as the universities are the places of acquiring knowledge and conducting researches.
DU Vice Chancellor Prof Dr AAMS Arefin Siddique, among others, spoke at the function.
