North East Education Trust (NEET) and its members have the experience of running and managing educational institutions at the Primary, Secondary and Higher Secondary level and also a Medical College offering MBBS degree. Taking stock of the experience and also resources, we started thinking of establishing North East University Bangladesh in July 2012 and got approval of the Government and UGC in March 2012.
The University became functional with academic activities in July 2012 - Summer Semester. The Syndicate, Academic Council and other committees comprising renowned Scientists, Economists, Educationists and Professors have been guiding the University Management Team led by Professor Dr. M. Khalilur Rahman as Vice Chancellor since May 2012. The Trustees are grateful to Professor Dr. M. Sodoruddin Ahmed Chowdhury, the first Vice Chancellor of SUST, Late Professor Dr. Bazlul Mabin Chowdhury, Former Vice Chancellor, IUB, Professor Dr. Mohammed Farashuddin, Former Governor, Bangladesh Bank and Founder President and Vice Chancellor of East West University for their wholehearted support. With the support of all in and outside the Trust, we were able to organize the Ceremonial Opening of NEUB on 9 June 2012 which was graced by the presence of the Hon’ble Minister of Education Mr. Nurul Islam Nahid, as Chief Guest.
For launching academic activities we got the syllabus and curricula of international standard developed by the reputed Professors of the country approved by the University Grants Commission. The Trustees University Management Team and the Faculty Members are very committed to provide quality education which helps the students to generate innovative ideas and adopt and apply the gathered knowledge in an innovative perspective.
North East University Bangladesh believes in the principle of equal opportunity for all, but the best should get the opportunity first. This allows NEUB to maintain quality in all spheres. We understand that this approach may initially limit the inflow of students and so much so income, but ultimately NEUB will be the winner and the country will be best served.
In the conclusion, I would like to invite the visitors of the webpage of NEUB and the Campus, located presently at the heart of the Sylhet City Corporation and free of all types of environmental hazards. NEUB provides the students, teachers and also the staff a safe, secured, gender sensitive and education friendly Campus.
I wish our students, teachers, trustees and all well-wishers a Happy NEW Year-2013. I hope our graduates will face the global competition and come out successfully.

I feel great pleasure in expressing my heartiest congratulations and best wishes for the gradual but steady development of the North East University Bangladesh.
Since its establishment four years back it has opened up great opportunities to play its role as one of the excellent universities of the country, especially in Sylhet.
As one who was closely associated at the time of its inception, I strongly feel that the NEUB has meanwhile fulfilled the expectations of its founders. Now time has come for the university with its academic experience and resources to look forward to further its activities and become the leader in the field of higher quality education in this part of the country. NEUB is determined and promised-bound to keep the good reputation of quality and high standard education in the academic arena of Bangladesh.
I sincerely hope and strongly believe that our experienced and well qualified teachers teach to the best of their ability, guiding our young generation on a path for the sustainable acquisition of skills necessary for a great and productive future in this university.
I wish all successes, prosperity and welfare of North East University Bangladesh.
