I graduated from the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Dhaka, Bangladesh) with a Masters degree in Materials and Metallurgical Engineering. I am considering applying to your university for coming academic year for working towards my PhD degree in the above field. Currently I am working as an Assistant Manager in Sylhet Gas Field Ltd. (oil and gas Production Company of Petrobangla) from 01/07/2009.

I’m looking for scholarship to pursue my PhD. I would be grateful you could provide me the details regarding to financial help (it may be even work & study program). Waiting for your kind reply.

Your’s sincerely
