It gives me immense pleasure to announce that the Patuakhali Science and Technology University
(PSTU) is going to celebrate its 2nd convocation on 5th February 2020. On this auspicious occasion, I
would like to congratulate all the graduates who will be conferred degrees for their glorious
achievement. I feel jubilant that about three thousand students of this university will be recognized
for academic accomplishment in this convocation. I hope that the knowledge and skills acquired by
the students will enable them to excel in their professional and personal lives.
Since its establishment in 2000, PSTU has been offering undergraduate and postgraduate
programmes in Agriculture, Computer Science & Engineering, Business Administration &
Management, Animal Science, Veterinary Medicine, Fisheries, Disaster Management, Nutrition &
Food Science and Land Management & Administration. In order to fulfill the mission of this
university, students are nurtured and equipped in academic programmes that have been designed
with up-to-date and well-conformed curriculum tailored to the market needs and latest development
in the respective fields of specializations.
The university possesses sophisticated IT based classrooms and well equipped laboratories established by different project and government support especially by the Academic Innovation Fund of HEQEP. Students are exposed to IT facilities and full wifi coverage in academic buildings and residential halls in the campus. The university has a strong, content-rich, and engaging website to facilitate communication and interactions with all stakeholders, earning an excellent ranking (2nd) among the Science and Technology University for the last two consecutive years declared by a web based Swedish organization.
Over the years, our graduates have demonstrated their competencies in getting Master and PhD admissions in reputed foreign universities, securing competitive positions in government and private organizations, achieving awards for socio-economic contributions in national and international events. Many of our faculty members are conducting research and projects with external funds and producing very high quality articles in recognized indexed journals. We embrace new challenges and strive to transform this University a highest echelon of knowledge creation, acquisition, and dissemination.
With utmost respect, we would like to offer our heartiest gratitude to the Honorable President of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh and the Chancellor of Patuakhali Science and Technology University as he has given his kind consent to preside over the 2 nd convocation ceremony. Usually, organizing convocation is a cumbersome task and requires massive preparation. Hence, I expect cordial cooperation from all the teachers, graduates, officers, staffs and other employees to complete the ceremony successfully.
I convey my heartfelt congratulations once again on successful completion of this program. Be proud of what you have worked on to achieve and remember those who have supported you to reach this day. I wish you every success in life.
