Education Minister Nurul Islam Nahid on Wednesday urged the students to acquire knowledge on modern education as well as developing moral values aiming to build an economically developed country.
"It is urgent to build an ideal nation through providing global standard education to make the students efficient workforces," he told the 1st convocation of Bangladesh Islami University(BIU) at the Basundhara Convention City, an official release said.
Chairman of the Public Service Commission (PSC) Dr Sadat Hossain was the convocation speaker.
Chairman of University Grants Commission (UGC) Prof Abdul Mannan, BIU Vice Chancellor Prof Dr Anwarullah and Chairman of BIU Trustee Board Kamal Uddin Abdullah Jafori, among others, addressed the convocation.
Nahid said the government will take legal action against the private universities which have failed to fulfill their conditions to run the university under the rules of the Private University Act-2010.
Some of the private universities are yet to fulfill their conditions as per the Act and they have to face legal action after the scheduled timeframe, he added.
Speaking on the occasion, Nahid said, "You (students) are the future of the country. So, you have to be good citizens through acquiring knowledge to boost the development process for building a prosperous Bangladesh."
Nahid urged the authorities concerned to ensure congenial and good academic atmosphere at all educational institutions to make those free from all sorts of terror activities.
"Both public and private universities should be centre of excellence for practicing new knowledge...Without ensuring good academic atmosphere, it is not possible for improving quality of tertiary education," he added.
The minister said a remarkable progress has been made in the education sector as the government is working sincerely to expand and improve quality of education in the country.
The government has expanded the opportunity of higher education across the country for all students, he said adding, "Students are easily receiving higher education as we have expanded facilities for higher education up to the upazila level."
