The Ministry of Education (Burmese: ပညာရေးဝန်ကြီးဌာန, Burmese pronunciation: [pjìɲàjé wʊ̀ɴdʑí tʰàna]; abbreviated MOE) is the Myanmar government agency responsible for education in Myanmar.

Brief History[1][edit]

The Ministry of Education aims to nurture future oriented advanced science and technology professionals, support national economic development and promote research. In order to rectify and strengthen the purposes, Ministry of Education expanded into new Ministry of Science and Technology in 1996. This ministry focused on research and development, intellectual property, standardization, quality assuring, basic infrastructure development, nuclear safety and human resource development. In 2016, the five departments from Ministry of Science and Technology merged with Ministry of Education with the aim of forming momentum in national development. Currently, Ministry of Education is taking control in national development with four categories.

  1. Research and development category
  2. Human resource development category
  3. Foreign collaboration and co-operation category
  4. Rural development category
