Bangladesh Agricultural University
Bangladesh Agricultural University or BAU was established as the only university of its kind in Bangladesh in 1961. The scheme for BAU was finalised on 8 June 1961 and its ordinance was promulgated on 18 August 1961.It started functioning with the College of Animal Husbandry and Veterinary Science at Mymensingh as its nucleus. The university has six faculties and 43 departments covering all aspects of agricultural education and research.BAU was the second highest budgeted public university in Bangladesh for the year 2013–2014. It is ranked number one university of Bangladesh according to the Webmatrix University ranking 2017. BAU’s research in agriculture has made it well recognized across Asia.It also has a very low teacher-student ratio.
The campus, with an area of about 1200 acres is located in scenic rural surroundings on the western bank of the old Brahmaputra River, 5 km south from Mymensingh Railway Station and 120 km north from Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh. It also houses two national research institutes, namely, Bangladesh Institute of Nuclear Agriculture (BINA) and Bangladesh Fisheries Research Institute (BFRI).The university is three hours by bus from Dhaka, the capital. Inter-city trains take around four hours. The bus terminal and the train station are 2 and 3 kilometres (1.2 and 1.9 mi), respectively, from BAU campus.The university has its own buses which operate in the morning and evening for the students who live off campus. The buses cover the major roads and areas, especially the town hall, Zilla School corner, Notun Bazar, rail station, Patgodam, Shombhugunjbridge, and Keotkhali. Sometimes, they cover JubliGhat and Kali Bari road.
The main vision of the university is to tone up the quality and standard of higher agricultural education and to produce first-rate agriculturists, agricultural scientists and researchers for shouldering the responsibilities of agricultural development of the country. It is a residential university mandated for offering for higher education and research in agriculture and all of its branches including conduct of examinations, conferment of degrees and granting affiliation.BAU has been the principal supplier of skilled human capital for modernizing our national agriculture since its establishment in 1961. And yet it has a long way to go ahead. It is our vision to make this University an integrated institution with functional relationships with relevant government organizations, non-government organizations, and private sector firms enabling BAU to contribute meaningfully to agricultural development of Bangladesh. We want to be guided by three watchwords relevance, quality and internationalization to respond to the call of a fast-changing world system.
