Every individual has their own
interest in their life. From my childhood, I would feel a strong interest in
Engineering and Technology, because of its versatile use in our everyday life.
As Bangladesh is a developing county and most of the foreign currency comes
from manufacturing products and Bangladesh is able to reach the zenith of RGM
sector all over the world. That’s why I intended to study Textile Engineering.
While standing on the verge of
fulfilling my graduation at textile engineering, I realize how important it is
to acquire a complete knowledge of product management for a textile engineer.
As a textile engineer, I have my own point of view about the necessity of
product management as I intend to survive in a productive sector. It is
indisputable that product management is an obligatory knowledge in the Textile
industry. In Textile sector from the inventory to the finished garments,
product management is to be monitored sincerely by expert personnel to access
better position in the market and to get more feedback from the consumers so
that a certain organization can maintain a satisfactory profit level.
Furthermore, my fascination for modern
technology, machinery and dramatically increasing Textile and Manufacturing
industries helped me to be motivated to study Textile Engineering. Now, I am
looking forward to pursuing a Master’s degree at University of Oulu to enrich my knowledge on Product Management by
having proper research opportunity.
I have completed my Bachelor degree in
the Department of Textile Engineering at Mawlana
Bhashani Science and Technology University (MBSTU), which is one of the
prominent Science and Technology universities of Bangladesh. I have maintained
a well-balanced program of study with a CGPA of 3.57 and extra-curricular
activities which have helped me acquire leadership skills, team building
qualities, analytical and problem solving skills and excellent communication
skills. Now, I’m working as a Lecture at Port
City International University (PCIU), Chittagong, Bangladesh for 2 years. I
have 08 (eight) publications on manufacturing and product management by
ensuring the standard level of quality.
In my last year of undergraduation, I
got a chance to visit some leading textile groups of Bangladesh like Comfit
Composite Knit Ltd, Divine Group, Impree
Newtex Textiles Ltd, Viyellatex, Aman group etc. and in fact, the
factory where I have completed my internship- Comfit Composite Knit Ltd. Almost everywhere I have noticed that
they evaluate the person who is expert in product management (R sector)
to a great extent. A skilled production manager gets high increment and uplifts
frequently. Without good control over product management, a textile engineer is
none in the industry. After that, I worked as a Management Trainee Officer at
Vertex RMG Division, Dhaka, Bangladesh for 07 (seven) months.
My interest about product management
got a new boost while studying my two individual undergraduate courses like Industrial Management and Production Planning and Control. I got
acquainted with the knowledge such as function
and role of management, utilities of products, value, price and demands, project
management through CPM or PERT, quality control in production life cycle etc. Otherwise, in my 02 (two) years teaching, I’m conducting the courses such as
production planning and control, supply chain management, apparel manufacturing
engineering and technology, quality management, garments assembly etc.
to fulfill my cherished dream, I want to pursue my higher study at the University of Oulu, Finland because it
is one of the best of its modality and one of the largest universities in
Finland that offers the degree which is highly prestigious. During the
university search process, I found this department has rich faculties having
different research interest and having great facilities for pursuing higher
studies. Moreover, my father is very happy to hear that I am applying to Master’s Programme in Product Management
at Europe, He has promised to fully finance for my all costs such as
educational costs, living costs and other expenditure so that I can complete my
post -graduation without any impediment.
