I was really amazed to see how programming language controls everything we do with our computers.
In the subsequent years I learned software like MATLAB, PSpice, ORCAD, Export DSCH,
Export Microwind, Quartus-II, ADS, Simulink, Latex etc. I enjoyed subjects like Electronics,
Digital Electronics, Microprocessor & Interfacing, VLSI-I, VLSI-II, Processing & Fabrication
Technology, Optoelectronics and Solid State Devices. These subjects propelled me toward the exciting world of electronics. After my third year I got a chance to get involved in a month long industrial attachment. I was lucky to work with real scientists and visit different labs at Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission and Energypac Engineering Ltd. I was given
“Temperature Controller Using PID Control”to work on as my project. In my final year, I chose electronics as my major.
For my thesis, I joined hands with two of my friends to work on MESFET device under the supervision of Dr.Hossam-E-Haider. The thesis was titled “STUDY OF MESFET CHARACTERISTICS
AND ITS MODELING”. We studied two different models given by Tajima

In the very first semester I was given to teach Fundamental of Electronics. Here my thirst for extensive knowledge on electronics rose again. I did some online courses to get a better understanding but I knew that was not enough. As a lecturer, I also took theoretical courses on Microprocessor & Interfacing, Computer Programming & application, Signals &
Systems and Electronics-I. This helped me to gain an in depth knowledge in each of these subjects and develop my communication skills as well. I also did two short course training on Radar Engineering and Avionics Engineering Lab. I was a member of the admission testof Dhaka Electric Supply Company Ltd (DESCO). I was in charge of an examination center with several staffs working under me. This experience helped me to learn how to work under immense pressure with utmost responsibility. I became a student member of IEEE and started to follow their online course “Introduction to Nanotechnology”. I started to download monthly electronic journals from there and studied the papers I found interesting. In the mean time, I did some independent research with a colleague of mine on a solar

    For elective courses, I chose to concentrate on RF and communication classes; this aligned well with my job as a telemetry technician. The defining moments of my undergraduate education was my senior project. I worked with many engineers, and was given a small engineering project to be used during my senior project. I was to design, build and test a laser code demodulator to be used at the Hill Air Force Base Test & Training Range. This was the first time I was forced to synthesize the knowledge learned during my education, which was a growing experience for me.…

    It is held during Computer Science Education Week, annually. This movement helps introduce participants of all ages into computer science (School Library Journal). Introduced students are usually taught coding skills through applications such as Scratch (Tech & Learning). According to Richmond Elementary School, “kindergarteners and first graders used app such as ScratchJr”, and older students used Code.org (School Library Journal). I have participated in this event twice during high school, and it has helped me become more interested in the computer science because there were helpers who provided great information about computer science and the work field.…

    But while I have spent countless hours learning how to build RESTFul on StackOverflow, I want to expand my knowledge beyond programming. I want the ability to analyze complex algorithms to figure out if a problem is solvable. I want to learn not just what the software development process is, but why the process is that way. I want to study assembly and hardware architecture, machine language, and everything related to the field. The education from the CSE program at UW Bothell will give me a better depth of knowledge that will not only help me reach my goal of becoming a Software Developer, but help make me a great one.…

    I took up science as my senior secondary major. My newly acquired knowledge in the field of physics, C-programming, mathematics and mechanics during my senior years at school were put to test when I lead the team of six senior school students to design and develop quad-copter for a national level design contest named ‘Silico Battles’. All these experiences encouraged me to pursue higher studies in the field of Mechanical Engineering. After competing in a national level entrance exam followed by a personal interview, I secured a seat in India’s one of the oldest and prestigious government institution ‘Jamia Millia Islamia’, New Delhi which has a highly competitive selection ratio of 1:333. During my freshman year I was involved in projects of an interdisciplinary nature.…

    I have also learned a lot about the classroom management needed in a science classroom to successfully complete a lesson or unit. Before this semester, I looked at science as a very set subject. However, through CI 449, I have learned that much of science is inquiry based. The students should drive my lesson planning and where the class goes in lessons. This was a very difficult concept for me to understand and apply at the beginning.…
