About Dr. Md. Roknuzzaman Siddiky
Since my boyhood, I have had a passion for working in the development sector. As such, after graduating from the Dhaka University majoring sociology, I started my career in 2000 as a development practitioner in RDRS, Bangladesh – a renowned NGO working in the northern region of Bangladesh. Then I switched my professional career to education sector so that I could contribute to the nation-building activities and societal development of Bangladesh by imparting knowledge and quality teachings to the students. I started my teaching career as a lecturer in sociology at the Dhaka Residential Model College (DRMC) – a well-known educational institution in Dhaka city – on the 14th December, 2002 and worked there until July 1, 2005. Through qualifying 24 BCS Examination, I started my teaching profession in BCS (General Education) Cadre as a lecturer in sociology on July 2, 2005 and was posted at the Rajshahi College – one of the oldest educational institutions and the most renowned university level government colleges in Bangladesh. I was immensely fascinated by the academic environment and quality education of Rajshahi College. Rajshahi College greatly changed my outlook and perception as a teacher and inspired me to undertake an advanced study.
In 2008, I was awarded scholarship under the Korean Government Scholarship Program (KGSP) to pursue my PhD. After undertaking a year-long Korean language training at Silla University, I got myself admitted in 2009 to the Graduate School of Techno-HRD of the Korea University of Technology and Education (KOREATECH) – a well-reputed university in Korea in the field of engineering and HRD – where I undertook my doctoral research on the effectiveness of Korean international development cooperation to facilitate HRD in Bangladesh under the supervision of Prof. Uh Soo-Bong – a renowned Korean HRD expert and a labour economist. In August 2012, I was awarded doctoral degree. Soon after I received my PhD degree, I came back to Bangladesh and was posted in Rajshahi College in December, 2012. Prior to my joining in the Noakhali Science and Technology University (NSTU) as an associate professor of sociology, I used to serve at the Rajshahi College and subsequently the NSTU as an assistant professor of sociology. After my joining, I have been playing an active role in teaching various courses of sociology and in the development of the Department of Sociology as a chairman. I have been also serving as an additional director at the International Cooperation and Collaboration Centre (ICCC) of the NSTU. Soon after my joining at the ICCC, I have been playing a key role to promote academic collaboration with many overseas universities. By this time, I have published a number of quality journal articles in the field of social sciences and education.
