Design and Develop low cost medical instruments for technology dissemination in the Third World. The research group of Biomedical Physics & Technology has already achieved significant innovations in following fields, (i) Destruction of diarrhoeal germs in water at low cost using simple and easily available materials, which also provide an indirect means of solving arsenic problem. ii) A novel Focused Impedance Method (FIM) with significant potential in the detection and diagnosis of disorders and disease of lungs, stomach and certain cancers, in monitoring of radiotherapy, etc. This idea has received international acclaim on which Universities in UK and Korea have already started work. iii) Discovery of a new neuro physiological parameter named Distribution of F-latency (DFL), having potential in the detection and diagnosis of peripheral neuropathy. iv) Design and development of low cost medical instruments for technology dissemination in the Third World.

Internationally recognised Professor S. N. Bose of Physics, Qazi Motar Husain of Statistics, M. H. Khundkar of Chemistry were associated with this Faculty. These eminent scientists made extraordinary contributions in science.

Two research centres are running under the Faculty of Science, namely Bose Centre for Advanced Study and Research in Natural Sciences (Director: Professor Shamima K Chowdhury), and Semiconductor Technology Research Centre (Director: Professor Dr. A.K.M. Maqbulur Rahman). The Centre provides research grants for Faculty members. The Chairman, Department of Chemistry is the Director of Organic Pollutant Research Centre.
