I am happy to present to you our university and welcome you to be involved in the progress of the university as its stakeholders.

Fascinating scenic beauty with a large water body along the eastern side of the complex has made the whole sports complex especially attractive.
The 600 MBPS internet connectivity of the university has been extended to all the students, faculties, officers using wi-fi technology. All academic and other offices have been brought under digital network to transform hard copy-based paper work into e-offices gradually. Also, under present COVID pandemic situation, we are conducting all our classes (including simulation-based labs) through digital platforms like Google classroom, Google Meet etc.
Engaging faculties and senior students in research are one of the prime goals of BUBT. To encourage research activities, “Call for Research” proposals are invited twice in an academic year and research grants up to BDT 5 lac per proposal has been earmarked for potential research proposals. Senior faculty members actively engage junior faculties and senior students in the research work with an ultimate goal of publishing high standard journal & conference papers. Co-curricular and extra-curricular activities are integral part of our academic programs. To engage students in such activities, different clubs have been formed at the department level as well as in the central level under the direct supervision of Director of Student’s Welfare.
The landscape of higher education is fast changing with the advancement in technology and easy access to knowledge through different digital platforms. Our graduates will be facing new challenges and new world order in the post COVID era and new innovative methods to be adopted to meet the rapid and complex changes in different sectors arising due to pandemic situation. We are preparing our graduates to face such challenges in promoting self-reliance, inclusiveness and building societal cohesion.
Our mission is built on three strong foundations:
- Academic Excellence
- Teaching & Research
- Service to the society and our beloved country
We have a dream and all the family members of BUBT are working together to implement the dream of “transforming BUBT into center of Excellence” and one of the top-ranking universities in South East asian region within next five years.
