s the Chairman of the Board, I will endeavor to continue the legacy of my late father, Dr. Anwarul Abedin. Together with the other members of the Board, the management, faculty and nonacademic personnel, we will sustain the best features and practices, and continue to pursue the mission and vision of the university. We will continue to offer quality and excellent academic services and programs to our stakeholders especially to the students who are the center of all our efforts and concerns. In consonance with this, it is with pride to let you know that our academic programs particularly the business administration and science and information technology have been granted full international accreditation status, while the Engineering is now on its candidate status. The Architecture and EEE programs have been professionally accredited by the local accrediting bodies, IAB and IEB, respectively. The other programs are now on the pipeline to undergo the same process. Although tedious and rigid, the quality management operation system of the university has been successfully granted ISO 9001:2008 Certification by SGS. Under my leadership, the university will continue to innovate and create new horizons in both academic and nonacademic programs and services. Through this medium, we will be able to reach out to the academic community both here and throughout the world by sharing with them the valuable information and events taking place in our university. The continuous flow of information about our university and the interaction with our stakeholders provide a platform to bind us closer with the higher education institutions, development and professional organizations' partners, corporate and industries, and other relevant sectors in meeting our inherent goals and aspirations. As new developments are taking place as a result of technological and academic advancement, this venue can be very valuable and beneficial to all of us to share and exchange expertise and resources in the academia.
I welcome you all to AIUB and experience the difference in your academic life.
Mr. Ishtiaque Abedin
