Dr. Amin is a proud alumni of this University (1998-2001). After the doctoral graduation, he remained associated with the Structural Mechanics and Dynamics Group (Structural Engineering Laboratory) of the department to conduct joint research, development, dissemination and student exchange activities in the common fields of interest. The duration of successful cooperation is now about to exceed a decade. The long understanding between him and the Structural Mechanics and Dynamics Group (Structural Engineering Laboratory) of Saitama University has led to signing five year Academic and Student Exchange Agreement between BUET and Saitama University, effective from April 2011. This agreement allows the two universities to exchange faculty, staff members and students for planning and implementation of collaborative research projects and educational programs conducive to the need of the time. Furthermore, the two universities will also exchange academic materials, publications and pertinent information for mutual benefit. See further at: http://www.buet.ac.bd/?page_id=2983
