Collaboration PartnersThe fundamental functions of a university are to acquire, to conserve and to disseminate the knowledge for the general betterment. The problems that we face to maintain these functions or even the paths that we follow are sometimes become much difficult for an individual. An effective cooperation between the minds of people of same flock or the institutions may make the problem easier for us to solve. We are looking forward to know those people or institutions across the world who can put some synchronized steps with us.

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.

Osaka University, or Handai, is a public research university located in Osaka Prefecture, Japan. It was one of Imperial Universities in Japan, one of the Designated National University and selected as a Top Type university of Top Global University Project by the Japanese government.
In 1911, Vice Minister of Education Masataro Sawayanagi, moved to Sendai to become Tohoku University’s first president. Sawayanagi firmly believed that academic research should be integrated with education. He also believed that a university should not discriminate based on class or gender.
Following this principle, Tohoku University accepted graduates from technical and higher normal schools, and despite opposition from the government at that time, became Japan’s first university to admit female students in 1913.
The university began as the Daido Technical-Educational Foundation in 1939. In 1969, the school became the Daido Institute of Technology. The university traces its origin back to the companies founded by Momosuke Fukuzawa. These companies consist of the Great Consolidated Electric Power Company, Limited (current: Kansai Electric Power Company and Chubu Electric Power Co., Inc.), the Nisshinbo Industries, Toho Gas Co., Ltd., Daido Steel Co., Ltd., Toagosei and Nagoya Railroad Co., Ltd. (Meitetsu), etc. He had a concept of a research institute for industrial technician trainings. The president of Daido Steel, Yoshio Shimoide (a member of the Japanese Diet), was inspired by his concept. In January 1939, Daido Technical-Educational Foundation was established by Yoshio Simoide.
University of Asia Pacific
