On the first day of July 1921 the University of Dhaka opened its doors to students. In the beginning there were three faculties Arts, Sciences, and Law. These consisted of 12 departments Sanskrit and Bengali, English, Education, History, Arabic and Islamic Studies, Persian and Urdu, Philosophy, Economics and Politics, Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, and Law. In the first academic year, the total number of students was 877. There were sixty teachers, including distinguished scholars of the humanities such as Haraprasad Sastri. F.H. Turner, Mohammad Shahidullah, G.H. Langley, Haridas Bhattacharya. Ramesh Chandra Majumder. A.F Rahman and Naresh Chandra Sengupta. Truly Dhaka University can be proud of them as well as its distinguished teachers of science. A few of them have been considered among the creators of modern science, and did much of their best work while teaching in Dhaka University. The name of Satyandranath Bose( Bose-Einstein Quantum Statistics fame) must be mentioned in this context.
In fact, as any student of Physics anywhere in the world knows. The universe consists of two types of fundamental particles, namely Fermion (obeying Enrico Fermi's Statistics) and Boson (obeying Satyandranath Bose's Statistics). The other physicists of international stature are KS. Krishnan (Dhaka University 1928-35) and S.R. Khastgir (Dhaka University 1931-48). The contributions of Gyanchandra Gosh and Mokarram Hossain Khundker in Chemistry. Quazi Motahar Hossain in Statistics, and Kamaluddin Ahmed in Biochemistry, Pharmacy & Nutrition Science, must also be mentioned. Source: DU Website
