Prominent Institutions :

Patuakhali Science & Technology University during the Fifth Five-Year Plan of 1997-2002, the Government of Bangladesh took up a project to establish 12 Science and Technology University in the country one in each district where there was no university. The main objective of the project was to spread higher education and research on science and technology to all parts of the country. It was decided to establish the university in two phases- 6 in the first phase ant the remaining 6 in the second. Science and Technology University came up as one in the first phase, along with five others – Haji Danesh at Dinajpur, Bangabandhu at Gopalganj, Mou Bhashani at Tangail, and Rangpur and Rangamati. One Project Director was appointed for each of these universities in November 1999 to help implement the project activities. Patuakhali Science and Technology University was established in the campus of the Patuakhali Krishi (Agricultural) College at Dumki, 15 km away from Patuakhali d istrict town. At present, the Patuakhali Science and Technology University has one faculty – the Faculty of Agriculture (emerging from erstwhile Patuakhali Krishi College). It is planned that two more faculties will be opened Faculty of Applied Science and Faculty of Life Sciences. It has been proposed that Faculty of Applied Science would start with one department (Department of Agro-Bases Technology and Applied Nutrition), and the Faculty of Life Science would start with another (Department of Fisheries and Aquaculture).
