The National University is working towards developing a curriculum that is skill-based, action-oriented, and in line with the developed countries of the world. Its Vice-Chancellor, Professor Moshiur Rahman, said that they are taking advice from local and foreign experts in formulating the new curriculum.

National and foreign researchers participated in this two-day-long international workshop. The NU Vice-Chancellor presided over the workshop.
