Importance and importance of science and technology education

The current administration has placed great emphasis on science and technology education to convert human resources into skilled labor. The importance of science and technology education is immense for the socio-economic development of the country and the eradication of unemployment. If the young generation of the country can be made proficient in science and technology education, no one can stop the development of the country. If competent teachers are appointed in the newly established science and technology universities, they can play a positive role in this.

Many modern subjects are taught at these universities. Many graduates are now doing higher research in different countries. Many have found work abroad. The contribution of scientific and technological universities is therefore undeniable. Like the renowned universities abroad, the universities of this country can also expand the possibilities of education in modern subjects by joining a college under their direct supervision. It will spread the light of technology in the homes of uneducated people in remote areas of the country. It will be positive for the country if technology education can be spread in this way in a remote areas of ​​the country.

Advances in science and technology are changing our way of life. Do we notice that daily activities are becoming more dynamic? Is there no alternative to being proficient in the knowledge of science and technology to continue successfully in everyday life? Korea, Malaysia, Singapore, Vietnam and other countries that were close to our level in development 50 years ago have achieved sky-high success by prioritizing knowledge, science, and technology. But are we lagging behind in development and production planning? In the past, the products imported from Japan, and Germany were now imported from Malaysia, Thailand, India, or China. In particular, the Indian government sought help from foreigners to build world-class educational institutions instead of wheat, leading to the rise of IITs and the rise of the Indian flag in science and technology to the world today.

At the time of independence, India could not produce good quality blades, now they send rockets to the moon and discover the existence of water. In every budget, we state loudly, the maximum spending on education. But remember that education is generally recommended to spend 6 percent of GDP? But we don’t know what the maximum number of allocations is in Bangladesh. This number is less than that. As published in the newspaper, many schools and colleges do not have enough teachers. The state of science education is also not good. Measures should be taken to remedy this situation.

We must not forget that Bengal’s contribution to science is no less. Acharya Jagdish Chandra Bose, Dr. Kudrat-e-Khuda, Satyendranath Bose, P.C. Roy, Meghnad Saha, Abdus Sattar Khan, Dr. Shah M Farooq, Dr. Maksudul Alam, Dr. Jamal Uddin and other scientists are world famous. But in the current bad state of science education, it will be difficult to get good-quality scientists in the future. 30-40 years ago science education was available in remote rural areas, was there a system of testing? Now that the scope of testing has been narrowed? Once every school’s top students felt the thrill of studying in the science department, now science students are trying to gain admission into business education with a degree in physics or chemistry. Wasn’t such a trend 30-40 years ago? Does this mean students can’t see the incentive to be interested in science education?

The slogan of leading academics attending a world-class biannual conference at Shanghai Jiaotong University is ‘To establish a world-class university?’ To make a sufficient allocation for research in universities and other research institutions for this, based on the performance of the universities, to ensure wide publicity in the media, to publish their ranks and to regulate prizes accordingly? Our point is that if a university can provide technical education under direct supervision to students from poor and remote areas of the country, we will welcome that initiative. At some point, Honors courses were running in Sherbangla Agricultural College, Haji Mohammad Danesh Agricultural College and Patuakhali Agricultural College as affiliated colleges of Bangladesh Agricultural University in Mymensingh. Later, these three institutions were transformed into universities. Everyone is reaping the benefits of this radical decision by then Prime Minister Jannetri Sheikh Hasina.

Bangladesh Agricultural University was also affiliated with a college called Bangmata Sheikh Fazilatun Nesa Mujib in Jamalpur a few years ago. Currently, it has also been converted into a university. In this sequel, Haji Mohammad Danesh Science and Technology University has also affiliated with a Science and Technology College. There are a total of six (6) honors courses in three faculties of the university. Students are taught there according to the university syllabus. The university also plays a direct role in the recruitment of lecturers. This initiative is also commendable. If good quality science teachers can be appointed to these universities and colleges, science and technology education in the country will improve.

In the college affiliated with the university, the hiring committee is formed, composed of the professors of that university, and the merit is verified through both written and oral tests. In some cases, after half a century, the teachers are now However, faced with many questions, and teacher registration certificates are sought. It is worth considering how reasonable this is. We don’t want science education to be disrupted in any way. Emphasis should be placed on the candidate’s educational qualifications, publications and both written and oral examinations when recruiting science teachers, especially at the university and affiliated colleges level. As we know, NTRC is announcing a teacher registration exam for the recruitment of teachers for MPO posts in various levels of MPO-affiliated educational institutions, such as lower secondary (Class VIII), Secondary (Class X), Upper Secondary (XI-XII) and graduated (PASS).

Someone who wants to become a teacher and who is qualified will receive a certificate of registration after passing the exam for that subject. Now the question is, has NTRC ever issued a registration test notice for the recruitment of teachers teaching graduate (Hons) level students? If not, where can a candidate who is interested in becoming a certified (honours) teacher obtain this certificate of registration? In fact, a teacher teaching graduate (honors) level students must be an expert in the relevant subject, over higher academic qualifications and publications in that field.

Science teachers who teach at the graduate (honors) level in new and old government colleges across the country should receive scholarships and study leave to pursue PhDs and postdocs. Quality education can only be guaranteed if the teacher is more qualified than the student. Dear Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina rightly attaches great importance to Ph.D. students. To encourage Ph.D. students and attract research, he voluntarily increased the number of grants previously awarded. The Ministry of Education also said in a report a few years ago that if a teacher in a government educational institution has a Ph.D. degree, he or she will receive three raises together.

In many famous universities of the world, one cannot become a professor without a doctorate. The research, publication, and postdoc experience of lecturers are highly valued in all those universities. There is no really reliable measure of knowledge. Measuring the quality of education is indeed a tricky business. An ideal teacher should have many qualities. However, for technical education, it is desirable that a teacher has at least a higher educational qualification. The education ministry of this technology-friendly government will surely take appropriate measures to smooth the path of science and technology education. Experienced and qualified teachers are expected to be valued.
