The mission of the University is to contribute in addressing the educational needs of thousands of youths yearning for quality university education emphasizing on professionalism, creativity, research for development by:
Seeking and using available and transferable technologies to make our graduates favourably competitive in a global economy.
Offering opportunity to unleash and transfer invaluable knowledge and practical experience of locally available but un-tapped national and international manpower. Going for quality rather than quantity in admitting students.
Ensuring that the students receive an education that enables them to become immediately operational upon leaving the university or can be self-employed. The university’s ultimate goal is to train the next generation of youths whose contribution in taking their communities out of the vicious cycle of un-employment and poverty make BUST the place to have belonged.
