Military Institute of Science & Technology - Center of Excellence
Establishment of a technical institution for Bangladesh Armed Forces had been a long desired need. It had been very strongly felt since 1980's in view of growing demand for technical personnel in military service. In the absence of such an institution in the Armed Forces, the military demand for technocrats was being supplemented by nomination of military officers to undergo graduation and post graduation courses at Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology (BUET), former Bangladesh Institutes of Technology (BIT) and other foreign technical institutes.
So, to establish a prestigious academic institute for studies in different fields of engineering and technology for military personnel and civil officials/ students of home and abroad at degree and post graduate levels, Military Institute of Science and Technology (MIST) came into existence on 19 April 1998.
Currently it is under the affiliation of Bangladesh University of Professionals (BUP), a university governed by the armed forces of Bangladesh.
There are five departments at MIST: Civil Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical, Electronics and Communication Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Aeronautical Engineering.
MIST enters into the domain of "Online Admission System" since 06 Sep 2010. It was inaugurated by Major General Tarique Ahmed Siddique, rcds, psc (Retd), Defence Adviser to the Honorable Prime Minister. MIST envisages creating facilities for military as well as civil students from home and abroad dedicated to pursue standard curriculum leading to Graduation Degree. As an Institution without any gender biasness, MIST is already on steady stride upholding its motto "Technology for Advancement". MIST remains committed to contributing to the wider spectrum of National Educational Arena and play a significant role in the development of Human Resources and ardently pursuing its goal to grow into a "Centre of Excellence".
The courses of MIST are - undergraduate programs in Civil Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical, Electronic & Communication Engineering, Mechanical Engineering & Aeronautical Engineering; BBA: MBA; Post Graduate Programs: Diploma courses in Surveying & Mapping: Diploma and certificate courses in Computer Science & Engineering and Professional advanced courses.
Currently undergraduate admission process is running at MIST. Submission of application form through online begins from October 1, 2012 and will run till October 31, 2012. Admission test will be held on November 23, 2012.
Undergraduate admission process at MIST has several steps. First, students are screened based on their GPA in HSC or equivalent examinations. Every year, 1,500-1,600 candidates are short-listed from approximately 10,000 applicants to sit for the admission test.
Besides the admission test, SSC and HSC results are taken into consideration while evaluating candidates. Students who have passed in minimum five subjects in GCE O-Level and three subjects (Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry) in A-Level, obtaining minimum C-grades in all subjects are also eligible for the admission test.
Foreign students may be admitted against a reserved quota of 3% of overall vacancies available (6% of civil seats). Vacancies will be offered to countries through Armed Forces Division (AFD), Prime Minister’s Office, of the Government of the Peoples Republic of Bangladesh.
MIST library has resourceful collection of 34,028 book (as of 2008), 1,000 CD-ROMs, and a good number of magazines, periodicals, journals and articles from home and abroad. The library gives access to online journals through INASP-PERI. The central library uses KOHA (open source software) as a part of Integrated Library Management System. It also subscribes a number of Bangla and English newspapers and periodicals. In addition to that each dept has its own library enriched with adequate text and reference books. There is also a cyber center for Internet browsing.
MIST has an annual technical journal titled "Galaxy" (ISSN: 2073-6444) whose concern is to provide a firm ground for students and faculty members to share their research and knowledge.
MIST has dorms for male and female students. There is also a Teacher's Quarter for the permanent teachers with families. Hostel administration is performed by the provost, one of the senior teachers from the five departments. Often the hall organizes many creative works and tournaments.
Moreover, MIST has two teacher's quarters named Polash and Shapla.
Now, the institute remains committed to contributing to the wider spectrum of national educational arena and plays a significant role in the development of human resources. শিক্ষা সংক্রান্ত খবরাখবর নিয়মিত পেতে রেজিস্ট্রেশন করুন অথবা Log In করুন।
