BSMRMU at a glance
Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Maritime University (BSMRMU), Bangladesh came out as the first ever maritime university of Bangladesh by an Act of the Parliament on 26 October 2013. The honourable President of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh is the Chancellor of the University. Right after the inception, the university started its journey towards excellence. MoU with a few reputed Maritime Universities of the world has already been signed for necessary supports to maintain high standard in education system in this university. The university is also planning to include Oceanographic Research Vessel for training of students and research works by the scientists to explore our sea area. With the landmark verdict on delimitation of maritime boundary with India and Myanmar, Bangladesh has been endowed with a large sea area. As the resources on land are depleting, it has become imperative for the nation to look towards the sea for its survival. Effective exploration and exploitation of maritime resources is therefore paramount towards economic emancipation of the country in the 21st century. Besides, the onus of maintaining ‘good order at sea’ is becoming heavier with the passage of time. In order to attain these goals, the nation desperately needs right kind of human resources. BSMRMU with its motto ‘We Strive for Maritime Excellence’ would provide necessary human resources for the nation, through creation of effective well qualified and knowledgeable human resources in the coming days. Towards attaining its goals, the university is going to conduct both graduate and post-graduate courses on various maritime fields. Process to establish a permanent campus is going on, where other specialized fields of study will be opened. Thus, it will endeavour to emerge as a center of excellence in maritime higher education within the shortest possible time.
