Plants and animals are the main sources of raw materials. Since we have no sufficient research facilities for extracting and improving raw materials and its quality as well for pharmaceutical and other chemical industries in our country, so establishment of a well equipped research laboratory is very essential. The Applied Chemistry and Chemical Engineering department of this university (NSTU) is not well equipped. So it is essential to provide necessary equipments to have a modern well equipped laboratory in the department which will therefore help in conducting the research on the said subjects especially in this coastal belt.
To meet the globalization challenges raising higher education quality to the world standard is essential. Bangladesh Govt. has taken initiatives to develop the quality of tertiary education. Govt. plans to prepare university graduates in such way that they can successfully compete in the context of international knowledge society.
Accordingly, the Ministry of Education, with the assistance of the World Bank, has undertaken a Higher Education Quality Enhancement Project (HEQEP). The project aims at improving the quality of teaching-learning and research capabilities of the tertiary education institutions through encouraging both innovation and accountability and by enhancing the technical and institutional capacity of the higher education sector.
The University Grants Commission of Bangladesh is the implementing agency of the project. A HEQEP Unit has been established in UGC for implementation, management, monitoring and evaluation of the activities.
