Introduction l.jpg

Bangladesh Atomic Energy Commission (BAEC) was established in 1973 through promulgation of Presidential Order 15.

  • Main Functions of BAEC includes-

  • Research and development in peaceful applications of atomic energy

  • Generation of electricity

  • Promotion of international relations congenial to implementation of its programs and projects

  • The programmes and projects of BAEC now focus on Health, Industries, Agriculture And Environment

Objectives l.jpg

Primary Objectives of BAEC:

  • Undertake fundamental research on various fields namely Physical, Biological and Engineering sciences

  • Acquire and adopt related technology like electronics, computer, material science etc.
