The University of Asia Pacific

The University of Asia Pacific (UAP) was established in 1996 with a vision to enhance the opportunities for higher education in Bangladesh. The University, under the Private University Act 1992, started its operation in 1996 by offering four-year Bachelor Degree Programs in Computer Science & Technology and Business Administration only. Now UAP offers undergraduate programs in seven disciplines and post-graduate programs in five disciplines. Its curriculum has been approved by the University Grants Commission of the Government of the People's Republic of Bangladesh.

UAP is sponsored by The University of Asia Pacific Foundation, a nonĀ¬-profitable, non-commercial organization based in Dhaka, Bangladesh. The Foundation has been established in 1995 by a group of eminent educationalists, Industrialists and administrators who share the same vision and social commitments to promote improve and innovative educational opportunities to the society. UAP is the project of such noble goals. Mr. Ragib Ali is the current Chairperson of this foundation.


The principal aim of this privately funded University is to provide quality education at undergraduate and post-graduate levels relevant to the needs of a dynamic society. The courses and curricula are so designed as to prepare a student with sound academic background either to enter into the competitive professional job market or to continue further higher academic studies at home or abroad. The overall academic goal of the University is to equip its students with the means to become skilled and productive resources of the community
