BRAC University has renamed its engineering school the BSRM School of Engineering. According to a press release, the decision was made at an event attended by engineering faculty, students, and alumni, as well as representatives from the BSRM Group of Companies.
Tamara Hasan Abed, Chairperson, Board of Trustees of BRAC University said “The Board of Trustees approved the renaming to recognise BSRM Group for their generous donation that will fund critical academic initiatives to support advanced research and modern pedagogy.”
The donation will be used by the BSRM School of Engineering to recruit world-class faculty over the next several years, fund cutting-edge research in key impact areas, and promote curriculum innovation.
The BSRM Group’s endowment contribution will also fund a number of merit-based scholarships, including several full-tuition grants for engineering students.
