Message From The Founder & Chairman

Dr. Toufique Rahman Chowdhury

The Metropolitan University has traversed a length of thirteen years since its inception in May 2003. A decade or a couple of years added to that can hardly set a tradition, yet our promises of imparting proper and adequate higher education have started bearing fruits. We have been able to make our presence felt, that is to say, we exist and we are growing as we have planned and expected. The launching of the Website of the University is definitely a forward leap; we now open up our doors to the global students.We are working here with devotion and with a vision for a bright tomorrow. We believe that the tomorrow will be visibly shining. Please lend us your support to help us grow as we have chalked out.

Message From The Vice Chancellor

Prof. Md. Saleh Uddin Ph D

Metropolitan University was established in 2003 with the mission of providing quality tertiary education at an affordable cost. Located, far away from the nation's capital, in the holy city of Sylhet, the university has been engaged in shaping up the future citizens of the country, in grooming them as 'whole' human beings imbued with values, love for their country and roots, and equipped with proper knowledge and expertise in related fields. Thirteen years is not a great stretch of time to reach any peak but we are determined to make it. We pledge to go ahead with the vision of making Metropolitan University an enviable seat of academic excellence.
