Mr. Kabir & his team (Mr. Tanzim Khalid, Mr. Nissan, Mr. Naquib, Mr. Sajid and Mrs. Nowrin Shahriar ) dedicated time each week to review my work and provide constructive feedback. Through him, I gained meaningful insights into the day-to-day functioning of a manufacturing unit and the various supply chain decisions required to drive operational efficiency. Beyond enhancing my technical skills, this internship experience strengthened my communication, problem-solving and time-management abilities. I also received exposure to Unilever’s emphasis on safety, sustainability and people development practices.

I’m grateful to Mr. Kabir & his team for imparting invaluable industry knowledge and mentoring me during my time at Unilever Bangladesh.

Leadership Journey at Bangladesh Navy School & College

I have had the privilege of serving in leadership roles at Bangladesh Navy School & College over the past few years. In academic year 2015-2016, I was selected as the School Captain. Two years later, I took on the role of College Captain for academic year 2017-2018.

As School Captain, I coordinated various co-curricular activities and led by example to motivate younger cadets. Some of my responsibilities included overseeing discipline, organizing cultural programs and representing the school at inter-school debates and sports meets.

When I progressed to college, I was entrusted with greater responsibilities as College Captain. I coordinated all student bodies and committees. Some key initiatives I led were fundraising for charity, hosting alumni networking events and planning the annual college day celebration.

In both roles, I strived to be approachable, responsible and bridge communication between students and administration. I gained valuable experience in consensus building, public speaking, time management and acting with integrity under pressure.

Serving the Bangladesh Navy institution in leadership capacities has been an honor and privileged learning experience. It has reinforced my desire to one day serve the nation as a naval officer upholding the finest traditions of courage, discipline and service to humanity.

I am thankful for the opportunities and guidance provided by the school and teachers over the years to help nurture my potential as a leader.

Organizer at ICMERE 2023​

I gained invaluable project management and organizational experience by serving as a student organizer for the International Conference on Mechanical Engineering and Renewable Energy 2023 (ICMERE 2023). In this role, I was responsible for assisting the conference chair, Professor Dr. Suman Chakrabraty, in overseeing the entire planning and execution of the conference, from the initial preparatory stages through the post-event activities.

 

Some of my key responsibilities included processing over 300 registration submissions from researchers, academics, and industry professionals from 5 different countries. I worked diligently with the technical program committee to compile over 200 paper submissions, ensuring they adhered to formatting guidelines and anonymizing them before distributing them to reviewers. Furthermore, I closely coordinated with committee members and track chairs to plan the schedule for 20 parallel sessions spanning the conference’s 14 technical tracks over the two days. My efforts also encompassed overseeing crucial on-site logistics such as signage, catering arrangements, AV equipment setup and troubleshooting, attendee directions, and support.

 

Organizing a conference of ICMERE 2023’s magnitude, with its broad international reach and engagement, allowed me to greatly enhance my project coordination capabilities while also expanding my professional network within the fields of mechanical and renewable energy engineering on a global scale.
