Daffodil International University is a leading private university in Bangladesh. The university was established in 2002 with a view to meet the requirements of the society for higher education and research. The university provides quality education to the students at a moderate cost. The mission of the university is to turn out broadly educated and technology oriented graduates capable of making positive contributions for the development of the nation. The University Grants Commission of Bangladesh rates the university in the top layer in its ranking of private universities.

The university offers bachelor’s and master’s programs in several areas of business, science and engineering. The programs of DIU are organized under five faculties: Faculty of Business and Entrepreneurship, Faculty of Science and Information Technology, Faculty of Engineering, Faculty of Humanities and Social Science, and Faculty of Allied Health Sciences. The academic programs are of international standard and the syllabuses are regularly upgraded. There are five research centers in the university and four journals containing research papers from Bangladesh and abroad are regularly published.  

The academic activities of the university are conducted by full-time teachers trained in Bangladesh and abroad. The university imparts quality education through regular classes and laboratory works, seminars, workshops, industry visits and other co-curricular activities. Students participate in extracurricular activities through a number of clubs and societies. They regularly take part in sporting, debating, computer programming and other national competitions and earn honors and prizes for the university. There are opportunities in the university to acquire certifications from a number of professional academies. The nature of profession continues to change, but up-to-date academic programs and professional certifications enable our graduates to face the job market successfully in Bangladesh and abroad.

DIU is especially known for its ICT-based services; academic and administrative services are available online through the Internet. Students, teachers and officers regularly interact for academic and administrative activities through online forums and discussion groups. E-books, e-journals and other e-recourses of the university library are accessible through the Internet anytime from anywhere. The university is known nationally and internationally for its ICT activities and it is in a high position in Bangladesh.

The university conducts academic programs in a number of elegant buildings at the heart of Dhaka city and at Birulia Permanent Campus in Dhaka.  The expansion of the Birulia campus on a vast land at Birulia is progressing fast. Life at the vibrant campuses of the university is exciting and stimulating, but it is challenging at the same time. I heartily welcome young learners to Daffodil International University for higher education and research.
