IUB and Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University discuss research collaboration
A 15-member delegation from the School of Engineering, Technology and Sciences (SETS) of IUB visited the Sher-e-Bangla Agricultural University (SAU) on June 23, 2022 to discuss potential areas of collaboration between the two institutions. The IUB delegation was led by Prof. Yusuf Mahbubul Islam, Dean of SETS.
One of the key expected outcomes of the visit was to identify areas for information technology (IT) and agriculture to work together for knowledge sharing and joint research to meet the demands and challenges of the 4th Industrial Revolution.
During the visit, the IUB delegation was shown some of the ongoing research projects at the SAU. In the discussion that followed the demonstration of research projects, Dr. A.M. Shahabuddin, Dean of SAU’s Faculty of Fisheries, Aquaculture and Marine Science, did a presentation on some of the technology-related problems that the agricultural scientists and researchers were facing, especially in the fields of modern fisheries and aquaculture.
Later, the two delegations discussed probable areas where IUB’s school of engineering could provide support to SAU in the form of technological expertise through joint research initiatives.
