Congratulations to Nujhat Tasneem, PhD student in ECE, for securing the first place in the PhD preliminary exam. Every semester, approximately one hundred candidates (all high achievers) sit for the exam. She is the first person to achieve this from GTBSA community (at least in recent years).
She already kick-started her PhD by winning ‘IEN Seed Grant’. Topping the prelim is a great booster for her career. Hopefully, many more are yet to come.
We gave farewell to a number of beloved members of GT-BSA in 2017. Faisal Ahmed completed his PhD in Biomedical Engineering. Muhammad Wasequr Rashid completed his PhD in ECE and joined Impinj in Seattle, Washington. Muhymin Islam finished his postdoc tenure and joined Global Foundries in New York. Anindya Kishore Debnath finished his MS in City and Regional Planning and went back to his faculty job in BUET.
BSA-GT wishes them all the best for their next destinations.
