General Description

JKKNIU was established by the Government of Bangladesh on 01 March 2005, though the initiative for its establishment was taken some years before, firstly by a non-official group of socio-cultural local elites, namely Greater Mymensingh Cultural Forum. The university was originally conceived to be built as the first cultural university in Bangladesh, but the JKKNIU Act enacted in 2006 made it a general university with a special focus on liberal-cum-performing arts education and research.

 

The academic programs of the university started effective from 03 June 2007 with four departments under two faculties, i.e., the three Departments of Bengali Language & Literature, English Language & Literature, and Music under the Faculty of Arts and the single Department of Computer Science and Engineering under the Faculty of Science & Engineering. Two more departments were established next year under two new faculties, i.e., the Department of Accounting and Information Systems under the Faculty of Business Administration and the Department of Economics under the Faculty of Social Sciences. Two other departments were established beginning in the academic year 2009-2010 under two existing faculties, i.e., the Department of Finance and Banking under the Faculty of Business Administration and the Department of Fine Arts under the Faculty of Arts. Four additional departments were established in the academic year 2010-11 under four existing faculties, i.e., the Department of Dramatics under the Faculty of Arts, Department of Electronics & Communication Engineering under the Faculty of Science & Engineering, Department of Public Administration under the Faculty of Social Sciences, and the Department of Human Resource Management under the Faculty of Business Administration. As of May 2011, there were in all twelve departments under the four faculties of JKKNIU.
