It brings me immense pleasure to extend a warm welcome to all students and visitors of the University of Science & Technology Chittagong (USTC). As the Vice Chancellor of this esteemed institution, I am honored to address you and share the remarkable journey that has shaped USTC into the beacon of learning and innovation that it is today.
Our history is one of dedication, vision, and progress. USTC emerged as a testament to the transformative power of education, with its foundation laid through the sponsorship of a private charity on that pivotal day of May 13, 1989. This act of benevolence demonstrated a deep commitment to advancing education and creating a platform where knowledge could flourish. Since then, USTC has continued to uphold this commitment and has evolved into a dynamic institution that contributes significantly to the educational landscape of Bangladesh.
The turning point in USTC’s history came with its elevation to a full-fledged university status following the promulgation of the Private University Act in 1992. This transformative moment allowed us to expand our horizons and offer a diverse array of academic programs. This transformation was not just a legal formality; it marked the beginning of a new era for USTC, one in which we could provide comprehensive education that transcends boundaries and disciplines.
At USTC, academic excellence is ingrained in our core values. We take immense pride in the dedication and caliber of our faculty members and staff, who work tirelessly to provide a nurturing environment for our students. Our commitment to academic rigor is exemplified by our faculties, each of which plays a crucial role in shaping our students’ journeys.
The Faculty Of Science, Engineering & Technology (FSET) is a hub of innovation and inquiry, fostering the next generation of engineers, scientists, and technologists. The Faculty of Basic Medical and Pharmaceutical Sciences, alongside the Department of Biochemistry and Biotechnology, stands as a testament to our dedication to health sciences and research, driving advancements in medical knowledge and pharmaceutical discoveries.
Our commitment to holistic education is further reflected in the Faculty of Business Administration, which equips students with the skills and insights required to thrive in the dynamic world of commerce. The Faculty of Social Science and Humanities reminds us of the significance of understanding the human experience, society, and culture, fostering critical thinking and empathy in our students.
As you embark on your journey at USTC, I encourage you to seize the opportunities that abound within our campus. Engage with your peers, collaborate with faculty members, and immerse yourselves in the vibrant academic and extracurricular activities that USTC offers. Our state-of-the-art facilities, research centers, and well-equipped libraries are here to facilitate your quest for knowledge.
USTC’s journey from its inception through its transformation to the present day has been marked by resilience, growth, and an unwavering commitment to excellence. Together, as a united community, we shall continue to shape the future of education, research, and innovation. I am confident that your time at USTC will be transformative and inspiring, and I eagerly anticipate the remarkable contributions you will make to our society and the world.
