Summary of Ceramic Sector in Bangladesh
At present, in the education system of Bangladesh, it is very difficult to get a job of choice in theoretical studies. Even after graduation, the job of choice does not match. As a result, the problem of unemployment is increasing day by day. In all the countries of the world, technical education is given enough importance to build a skilled population. As a developing country, Bangladesh is not lagging behind in this regard. One such epoch-making technology is ceramic engineering. Some of the institutes under Bangladesh Technical Education Board have 04 years Diploma in Engineering in this subject. In the last few years, there has been a revolution in this industry. At present there are a couple of hundred ceramic products manufacturing companies in our country. Domestic ceramic companies are meeting the demand of our country almost 100 percent. Apart from this, more recently, some Bangladeshi companies have been exporting their products to several countries in Asia, including Europe and America. Despite the huge demand for ceramic engineers, the opportunity for education in this field has not expanded much in our country. Due to the small number of educational institutions at the diploma level, the ceramics industry is not getting the skilled manpower as per their demand, hence the demand for students who have passed in this technology is huge in all the ceramic industries.
Diploma in Ceramic Engineering is 4 year long program and it consisting of 8 semesters (each semester is 6 month). Two exam such as in-course and final exam held per semester conducted under the supervision of Bangladesh technical Education Board (BTEB).
