Establishment of a technical institution for Bangladesh Armed Forces had been a long desired need. It had been very strongly felt since 1980's in view of growing demand for technical personnel in military service. In the absence of such an institution in the Armed Forces, the military demand for technocrats was being supplemented by nomination of military officers to undergo graduation and post graduation courses at Bangladesh University of Engineering & Technology (BUET), former Bangladesh Institutes of Technology (BIT) and other foreign technical institutes. MIST came into existence on 19 April 1998. It throbbed into breathing when the academic programme was launched on 31 January 1999 with the maiden batch of Civil Engineering (CE). Though the pioneer batches comprised only military students (session 2001-2002), civil students (both male and female) were admitted to various disciplines from the session 2002-2003. At present most of the students are civil. MIST envisages to create facilities for military as well as civil students from home and abroad dedicated to pursue standard curriculum leading to graduation and post graduation degree. As an institution without any gender bias, MIST is already on steady stride upholding its motto "Technology for Advancement". The institute remains committed to contributing to the wider spectrum of national educational arena and plays a significant role in the development of human resources. The aim of MIST is to conduct undergraduate and post graduate courses on various disciplines of engineering as well as management studies leading to the degrees of B.Sc in Engineering and Master of Business Administration. The objectives of MIST are as follows:

1. To establish a prestigious academic institute for studies in different fields of engineering and technology for military personnel and civil officials/ students of home and abroad at degree and post graduate levels.

2. To organize courses on military science, technology and management in various arenas of interest.

3. To hold examinations and confer certificates of diplomas/degrees, other academic distinctions, to and on persons who have persuaded a course of study and have passed examinations conducted by the institute.

4. To confer research degrees, award fellowship, scholarship, exhibition, prizes, medals and honorary degrees to persons who have carried out research works under conditions as prescribed in the MIST regulations.

5. To establish teaching Divisions (Div), Departments (Dept), Centers, Faculties etc and to make necessary arrangements for their maintenance/management/administration.

6. To make provisions for advisory, research and consultation service including supervision, material testing and to enter into suitable agreement with any persons/organizations for this purpose.

7. To co-operate with Universities/ Technical Institutions (both military and civil) including memoranda of understanding at home and abroad, in the manner and purpose as the institute may determine.

8. To do such other acts, related to above-mentioned objectives, as may be required in order to expand the objectives of the institute.
