Mr. Nahif completed his Bachelor’s degree from BRAC University in Electrical and Electronic Engineering where he was involved with several impressive projects, most notably, the development of a solar electric vehicle. Mr. Nahif likes to go on week long excursions into the hill tracts of Chittagong and stay in the wilderness to rejuvenate his mind and cope with the hectic city life.
