According to the Data of Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics, about one million (10 Lac) students enter the job market every year after graduation. As per the graduation rule, all graduating students have to submit at least one thesis or similar academic project in order to be eligible for the completion of the graduation. But in almost all cases, these projects or concepts / theories or ideas remain confined to the report with no practical use of the ideas. As a result, students tend to choose repeated topics, performing a copy paste, rather than working on working on new concepts or innovative ideas.
