The necessity for rapid technological development is increasingly felt in Chittagong division as well as in all other divisions of Bangladesh. Many development plans of Chittagong division have highly emphasized on science and technological research to build technologies through adoption of imported technologies as well as development of our indigenous technologies. As Bangladesh is heavily relying on imported technologies now, structured well-defined planning is a must for its effective transfer through acquisition, assimilation and adoption.
A National Science and Technology Policy has been built and practiced by the Government. It provides the thorough directions for Science and Technologies activities and research, institutional and manpower development of Bangladesh. The National Council for Science and Technology (NCST) formulates Science and Technology policies, monitors and supervises the activities of different institutions and act as a guide for science & technology research and activities in Bangladesh.
