The birth process of the university began in 1999. Awami League government took the plan to set up 12 science and technology universities in 12 large districts where there are no universities in Bangladesh. In the first phase, six development project proposals were prepared for implementation. Among the six, the Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Science and Technology University project was one of the top. On 15 November 1999, M. Khairul Alam Khan, Professor of Department of Applied Physics and Electronics Engineering of Rajshahi University was appointed Project Director and sent to Gopalganj.
The Project Director, in his consolidation efforts, completed the work of university selection, land acquisition (about 55 acres) and land-building work. Already, on 8 July 2001, Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman Science and Technology University Act was enacted in the great parliament. On 13 July 2001, Honorable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina formally laid the foundation for this university. On 14th July, the Honorable Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina recommended Professor Dr. M. Khairul Alam Khan as the Vice-Chancellor of the University. The recommendation was approved by Honorable President on 19 July 2001.
In the election of 2001, the four-party alliance government of Jamaat-BNP came out in power and closed the university's project completely on April 15, 2002. Vice-Chancellor Prof Dr. M. Khairul Alam Khan was sent to his previous institution, Rajshahi University. Moreover, 7 employees of the university were discharged from the service, so officials and employees were forced to live their lives completely without any work.
Awami League started the government winning the 9th parliamentary elections held on December 29, 2008. In November 2009, the postponed project was revived and On 5 January 2010, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina appointed Professor Dr. M. Khairul Alam Khan again as Project Director.
