Hajee Mohammad Danesh Science & Technology University
Hajee Mohammad Danesh Science & Technology University is the first Science and Technology University in the northern region of Bangladesh. HSTU is relatively new as a university having been established in 1999. However, as an academic institution its history dates back to 1979 when it started its journey as an Agricultural Extension Training Institute (AETI) created to offer three year diploma course in Agriculture. Ultimately based on the performance of Agricultural College but more importantly to cater to the need for highly skilled manpower in Science and Technology and for promotion of research it was declared to upgrade the College to Science and Technology University on February 1999.
The project consists of distributed large-scale rooftop solar photovoltaic generation facility and associated infrastructure, with an estimated maximum capacity of up to 1 MWp, which will reduce electricity consumption cost from the utility and become a model solar energy project for the northern region of Bangladesh.
