Student Success Story

Foysal Ahamed

Software Engineer, TigerIT Bangladesh Limited


I still remember the day I first stepped into the UIU campus. I really did not know what kind of career path I would choose. Two weeks into the SPL (Structured Programming Language) course, I discovered something that was driving me, something amazing happened and finally I found myself in a position where I knew what I was going to do. Dr. Hasan SarwarDr. Mohammad Nurul Huda, and Dr. Muhammad Monzurur Rahman some of the faculties I respected most always tried to push me to be my very best and showed what I could really accomplish. It was the small class size and personal interest that the professors take in their students that allows anyone to strive to be what they want to be.

The critical philosophy in UIU’s computer science program that has helped me the most over time was the push to understand the problem rather than to just solve it. Our professors showed us just how important the theories of computer science are in solving problems. These problem-solving skills are something that have changed how I address an issue and something I still use today.

I graduated in 2014 with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science degree. After graduation, I was offered a lucrative job to be a software engineer at TigerIT Bangladesh Limited, a software and service manufacturer for various government projects. I gladly accepted the offer and have been serving the company since then. I have made a career working in some large-scale government projects (TigerIT) and I am really enjoying my work. Development, thorough testing, and documentation are some of the skills I learned in my undergraduate classes that I have taken to the workplace.

I was also a member of the UIU Computer Club (UIUCCL) for three years where we’ve always practiced team work, dedication and proper time management between academic and extra-curricular activities. UIUCCL has remained a big part of my life to this day, and I highly recommend joining the UIUCCL or any campus activities/sports.

Whenever I’ve walked in to an interview, I have been proud of my degree from United International University. My Computer Science degree has given me the confidence and motivation to excel at any job I put my mind to. I am pursuing Master of Computer Science at United International University to help me advance my career even further.
