With the vision of enhancing life oriented education, Bangladesh Home Economics College has founded in 1996 in a rented house by a group of dedicated teachers and was approved by the University of Dhaka as a constituent college. The college is not owned by any individual, rather all the administrative activities are being directed by an independent governing body. All the curriculums of this college are adopted from the faculty of Biological Science of the University of Dhaka and the University is directly monitoring all the academic activities.
The college moved to its own facilities in 2015 where it enjoys the tranquil environment, suited to a peaceful and quality education.
