Welcome and thank you for taking time to visit my website. I am Dr. K. M. Azharul Hasan, professor Department of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE)Khulna University of Engineering & Technology (KUET), Khulna, Bangladesh where I was the head of the department during November 2011- November 2013. Currently, I am seving as the dean of the faculty Electrical and Electronic Engineering, KUET. KUET is one of the high ranked leading public universities of Bangladesh giving special emphasis in the engineering and technological education and research. CSE is one of the leading engineering departments of KUET and has a countrywide and global reputation for its dynamic teaching and learning environment, research capabilities, orientation with the industries and excellent graduate records. 

I completed my BSc. Eng. From Khulna University, Bangladesh (in 1999) where I stood first among all the students of all the disciplines of that batch and I was awarded the university gold medal by the chancellor at the 2nd convocation. I completed my M. Eng. from Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Thailand in 2002 and PhD from University of Fukui in 2006 respectively. My PhD research was in extendible and flexible data warehouse design for dynamic data.

Currently I am working on Big Data technologies and Natural Language Processing.  I like to continue my career as an academician especially for teaching, research and academic curricula development. I was the organizing chair of the 5th EICT 2021.
