Mohammad Habibur Rahman taught social work in two public universities in Bangladesh. He was the founder of a social work program in a science and technology university, the first of its kind in the country. Despite social work being a less familiar academic discipline, especially in a science and technology university, Rahman, a professor of social work, was for the first time appointed as the vice chancellor of the same university. Apart from teaching, he wrote a number of books on social work and social development, community development and community organization, and urbanization and urban social services and also conducted research on the socioeconomic and psychological causes of suicide, rural development and social services in Bangladesh, and urban community development. He presented social work-related papers in national and international conferences and also attended training courses and seminars on social work methods, social welfare policy formulation, and advanced planning in different countries.
