Dr. Mohammad Rashedur Rahman joined NSU in 2008 and is currently working as a Professor in the department. Dr. Rahman got his Ph.D. in Computer Science from University of Calgary, Canada under the supervisor Dr. Ken Barker who served as a Department Chair, Computer Science and Dean of Science, University of Calgary, Canada. He has his Masters degree from University of Manitoba, Canada. During his graduate studies in both schools he has been awarded with a number of prestigious scholarships that include Queen Elizabeth II Fellowship (15,000 CAD), Province of Alberta Graduate Fellowship (10,000 CAD), University of Calgary Research award (24,000 CAD for 3 Consecutive Years) , University of Manitoba Graduate Fellowship (64,000 CAD-declined for Ph.D. in University of Calgary), Departmental Research Award in University of Manitoba.  He had also been awarded  Deans Award  in BUET and Entrance scholarship in BUET for securing 20th position in BUET admission test among 3500 students. He is a recipient of a Gold Medal and Monetary Award of Outstanding Research from School of Engineering and Physical Sciences (SEPS)  for the period 2018-2020.

Since his joining, Dr. Rahman  devoted himself completely in teaching and research with his students of his department. He has taught different ranges of courses, as well engaged himself with different Masters and Undergraduate research theses and projects. He had supervised more than 10 Masters Students in ECE Department.  Since his joining at NSU, he had worked as an external thesis examiner for more than 15 Master’s theses.  Additionally, he served on the dissertation committee for two students who received Ph.D. degrees from BUET in computer science and engineering. Additionally, he worked as an external Ph.D. examiner for two students, one from Griffith University in Queensland, Australia, and the other from University of New Castle in New South Wales, Australia.

He had published a good number of international journal articles and research papers in conference proceedings with the students of NSU. All of those papers are indexed in Scopus, ISI Web of Science, and Google Scholar.   His published papers are well cited and a good number of citations ( around 2500 till October 22) from Google Scholar and Scopus has been recorded .

Apart from teaching and research, he also engaged himself in reviewing funding projects that include both national and international level grant applications. He has been appointed as  SRC (Scientific Review Committee) Chair from School of Engineering and Physical Sciences (SEPS) since 2020. He also served as an external reviewer of  a grant application amounting 50,000 Euro  from Department of Water and Climate Risk, Vrije University (VU) Amsterdam, Netherlands and RISE funding from BUET.

Dr. Rahman also review and set different questions for Information Technology Engineers Examination (ITEE) examination organized by JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency) and Bangladesh Computer Council under the umbrella of ICT Division, Ministry of Posts, Telecommunications & IT, Bangladesh. With JICA’s invitation and sponsorship he attended international question formulation workshop in Tokyo, Japan, 2015 . He also attended international question formation meeting (QFP) in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia and Bangkok, Thailand in 2017 and 2019 respectively  with joint sponsorship of JICA and GOB (Govt. of Bangladesh). Dr. Rahman served as an evaluation committee member of Scholarship & Fellowship award committee of ICT Division.

He is a Senior Member of IEEE and a Fellow of the Bangladesh Computer Society. He is serving as an editorial board member in  a number of renowned journals and a program committee member of several conferences organized by ACM, IEEE and Springer. He was the organizing chair of 24th IEEE International Conference on Computer and Information Technology( ICCIT 2021) hosted by NSU.
