Receiving higher education from a rural environment has been kind of a dream in Bangladesh. And offering quality education has never been easy outside the urban areas. On the other hand, a large number of aspirants for higher learning still live in or come from non-urban settings. Development of an independent nation depends much on total improvement in all sectors and in all areas. This is possible, among other steps, by making today's youth properly trained in the higher skills. Building leadership capacity and attaining intellectual pursuits go hand in hand with proper higher education.This is most needed in rural situations where also talents galore are latent, where such promising youth are only to be picked up and groomed. They are our future leaders. We plan to serve these less-advantaged groups. Z.H. Sikder University of Science & Technology, established recently in a vast green land of 200 bighas in a village in Kartikpur under Bhedorgonj Upozilla of Shariatpur district, is one step forward in the above respect. The University aims to provide best possible modes of higher learning, from within a lush green, serene, natural environment, not neglecting the use of modern, advanced pedagogy and technology. Expected to be fully residential, the University is also making available facilities for all co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, alongside regular fulltime teaching-learning.
