Tejgaon College

Tejgaon College presently located at Farmgate, the nerve centre of Dhaka city, has attained the age of 45 years. It started its journey as a night college in a school campus at Sadarghat. With stop-over at different points- Tejgaon Industrial Area, Alia Madrasha (Bakshi Bazar), Polytechnic School, Al-Razee Hospital Building and it has finally settled at Indira Road, Farmgate, Dhaka. It is now called a University College since it now offers Honours and Masters courses on 19/20 subjects under National University. From infrastructure and financial standing it may be assigned a grade-one position. No non-govt educational institution of Dhaka city is comparable with this college if structural developments and financial stability are considered. As many as 20/25 small colleges of suburban areas may run smoothly with the monthly establishment costs(salary and allowances) of this college. Anybody entering into the college must be surprised to see the infrastructure of the college. Established on over one acre of land, there are six multi-storeyed buildings- five six-storied buildings and one one-storied building- in addition to a good number of semi-pacca structures. If managed properly this college may develop within a very short time as a first grade seat of higher education.

In spite of its excellent location well connected with all the areas of Dhaka city , the college is yet to gain the status befitting its potential.
