Subir shares his own personal efforts to work toward continuous improvement within his own community, among his friends and family.
Beginning in 2013, the Subir and Malini Chowdhury Foundation will work with the SAE International and The SAE Foundation, the charitable arm of SAE International, to establish the Subir Chowdhury Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Student Quality Competition.
The goal will be to engage high school and college students in a nationwide competition that will allow them to demonstrate their understanding of the impacts of quality on their lives. It will also serve to help today’s students become tomorrow’s scientists and engineers.
The competition will be open to high school and college students throughout the United States on an annual basis. Students will be provided knowledge and skills based on Subir Chowdhury’s teachings in quality and process improvement. Students will be asked to design a project that will clearly demonstrate their understanding of how quality will impact their lives and the lives of those around them. Participants will compete at local, regional and national levels and will ultimately be rewarded for their innovative and creative thinking and application with cash awards for the top winners at the national competition level.
A first of its kind effort in the United States, the center will merge research, scholarship, art and culture, and building ties between institutions in Bangladesh and the U.S.
