Sylhet Agricultural University (Bengali: সিলেট কৃষি বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়) is a government-financed public university in Sylhet, Bangladesh.


Officially the Sylhet Agricultural University has started its formal function on 2 November 2006 following issuance of a notification by the Government as per requirement of the "Sylhet Agricultural University Act 2006" which was passed in the National Parliament on 3 October 2006. In fact, the faculty of Veterinary and Animal Science has come into being through the up gradation of Sylhet Government Veterinary College (SGVC). The SGVC was established in 1995 and had been functioning as "School of Life Sciences" under Shahjalal University of Science and Technology, Sylhet Bangladesh.

Sylhet Government Veterinary College, now the Faculty of Veterinary and Animal Science has so far produced nearly 400 graduates. Graduates of this university have gone on to careers or research in livestock production, up gradation, treatment, agricultural sub-systems, and the agro-based economy. They are involved in various national and international services ranging from the civil service to the RVFC (Remount Veterinary and Farm Core). Presently about 2000 undergraduate and 50 internship students are enrolled at the university.

The main goal of the university is to improve the quality and standard of higher agricultural education and to produce first rate agriculturists, agricultural scientists and technologists to meet the needs of agricultural development in Bangladesh. To achieve the objectives over 90 percent of the recurring budget and the entire development fund come from the government through the University Grants Commission (UGC).
