AIUB Community of Engineering Students (ACES) organized a seminar on “Study and Scholarship Opportunity in Germany” on April 9, 2019 in the Multipurpose Hall (Annex 7) of AIUB. The program began at 4:00 pm with the participation of about 200 students from various departments of AIUB. The purpose of the seminar was to provide ample information to the students about the higher educational fields with full funded scholarship opportunities and career prospects in Germany.

Prof. Dr A.B.M. Siddique Hossain (Dean, Faculty of Engineering, AIUB) inaugurated the seminar by greeting the speakers and the students with an astute speech. He informed the students about the medium of education; which is mostly English in Germany in order to keep pace with the international educational fields.

He emphasized on the significance of leading a lifestyle there as Germany is the 3rd country in the world recognized rankings, for its higher education programs and how the unemployment ratio is the least there. In addition, he also said that quality laboratory facilities, good research opportunities, full funded scholarship programs are available in almost all the universities of Germany and are also offering about 1000 master programs in English to attract international students in the Germany, making it worthily for its ranking.
