History 

Bangladesh emerged as an independent country in 1971 through an armed struggle. The history of the country is as old as it is eventful. In the ancient age, an Austro-Asian race first inhabited this part of the region. Then came the Dravidians from Western India and later on the Aryans from Central Asia to establish their small settlements. This followed the influx of the Mongolians, Persians, Turks and Afghans.

         According to Greek sources of the 4th century B.C., the people of this deltaic-region made extensive military preparations to halt the advance of Alexander the Great who had chosen to
continue his eastward march. Later records, inscriptions, coins and ornaments testify to the traditional civilization and glorious past of East Bengal, now Bangladesh. Muslims, who came to this region at the beginning of the 13th century, continued their rule till the advent of the British occupation in the 18th century. The British domination over the subcontinent was for about 200 years, and while leaving in 1947 they partitioned it into two sovereign states, India and Pakistan. Bangladesh formed the eastern wing of Pakistan until it became independent on March 26, 1971.

One International Institute on Engineering and Technology funded by the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC) is operating in Bangladesh with expatriate teachers and students from the OIC member-nations. Besides, hundreds and thousands of general colleges, high schools, junior high schools and primary/nursery schools are in operation.
