GOPALGANJ: Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Science and Technology University (BSMRSTU) on Wednesday celebrated its 19th founding anniversary in limited scale amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.
The day’s programmes began with hoisting of national flag in front of the administrative building. Later the acting VC Prof Dr Md Shahjahan along with other teachers and employees cut a cake.On 8th July of 2001, the act of Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Science and Technology University was enacted in the parliament and the university authorities started celebrating the day as BSMRSTU day from 2013.
The story of the birth of this university is a bit different from other universities. This university has a story of death and rebirth. In 2002 the four-party alliance government closed the BSMRSTU project and cancelled the appointment of Vice-Chancellor Professor Dr M Khairul Alam Khan asking him to join his previous institution Rajshahi University.
