A South Asian delegation inquired about pilot training, among others

A delegation from the Embassy and Permanent Mission of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh in Vienna has visited the University of Debrecen and discussed the possibilities of increasing the number of Bangladeshi students. The diplomats also visited the university’s Faculty of Engineering.

Currently, there are 123 Bangladeshi students at the University of Debrecen. Most of them study in courses in English language at the Faculties of Engineering, Informatics, Science and Technology, and Pharmacy. Nine students are enrolled to PhD training.
- In the past ten years, besides the students from the USA, Canada, Australia, and India, an increasing number of Bangladeshi students also chose Europe as the place of their higher education studies. Many of them have come to Slovakia, Slovenia, and Hungary. However, there is an even greater demand in our country of 170 million people, which is well demonstrated by the fact that there were two thousand applications to the available one hundred quotas of the Stipendium Hungaricum scholarship programme, said Asad Alam Siam, Ambassador of the Embassy and Permanent Mission of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh in Vienna. The diplomat was welcomed to the university on Friday by General Vice Rector Károly Pető and Okszána Kiszil, Director of Coordination and Strategy.
The representatives of the university described in detail to Ambassador Asad Alam Siam and Counsellor Tanvir Ahmad Torophder the university’s uniquely broad training portfolio, research system, infrastructure, and international network. The guests also toured the university’s Main Building where they learnt about the institution’s history.
The ambassador, who is also an architecture graduate, and his colleague visited the university’s Faculty of Engineering as well. They had a meeting with the heads of the faculty and discussed cooperation in training and research. In addition, they got a comprehensive overview of current research projects in the laboratories of Ótemető Street campus.

Asad Alam Siam and Tanvir Ahmad Torophder also met students of the Faculty of Engineering.
The last programme of the delegation was a visit to the university’s Outsourced Department of Aviation at Pharma Flight, where they got acquainted with every detail of the practical requirements of the Professional pilot training, the Boeing and Airbus simulators, among others.
