Information Technology degree opens up a different world for Bangladeshi student
Tayeef started his Masters of Information Technology at Macquarie after receiving news that he was awarded a Macquarie University International Scholarship (MUIS).
“I was so glad that I could start in February, without the MUIS I wouldn’t be here, so it’s definitely been a fantastic opportunity for me and I feel really lucky,” he says.
Tayeef has been impressed with the quality of teaching at Macquarie, noting that his lecturers and professors are particularly knowledgeable in their fields.
“This means that I have a good grasp on theory and industry knowledge because of what I have learnt and who I have learnt from. I think it gives me a competitive edge,” he explains.
Upon finishing his masters degree, Tayeef intends to undertake higher degree research work at Macquarie University.
“I want to bring back my research and knowledge from an advanced country like Australia, to help better the IT sector back in Bangladesh and to be involved in change and the development there,” he explains.
“Macquarie is how a university should be – a balance of quality teaching, enjoyable environment, modern facilities and endless learning opportunities. It’s definitely an environment that inspires students to somehow make their mark on the world. My mark will be in the information technology industry at home,” he says.
