Military Institute of Science and Technology (abbreviated as MIST) is a government engineering university in Bangladesh, located in Mirpur Cantonment. It is an autonomous body of the Ministry of Defense which imparts higher education in engineering. After independence, Bangabandhu expressed optimism at the Bangladesh Military Academy that one day researchers and engineers from the developed world would come to Bangladesh. He first envisioned a state-of-the-art engineering education and research institute for the Bangladesh Armed Forces.

On April 19, 1998, the then Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina laid the foundation stone of MIST to study BSc engineering for the officers of the Bangladesh military at Mirpur cantonment in Dhaka for the realization of that dream and for the technical development of the Bangladesh military. Initially, education programs were conducted from civil engineering, electrical and electronic engineering, mechanical engineering and computer science and engineering departments, but later other new engineering departments were opened.
