Now that Myanmar has opened itself to the world, we hope that Meiktila University will have the opportunity to enjoy the fruit of academic freedom and autonomy. It is important to engage with foreign universities to exchange faculty and students and bring new academic ideas into the existing university environment. Our goal is to transform Meiktila University into an excellent academic institution which is free from racial discrimination and academically strong.
Meiktila University has firmly decided to make itself mature and experienced in order to face the challenges of the new knowledge-based age. This is the mission of Meiktila University.
Meiktila University began as Mandalay Division Regional College(Meiktila) in 1977. The college was renamed Meiktila Regional College in 1980. It was designated as Meiktila College in 1981. The college was raised to the status of Meiktila Degree College in 1996. Meiktila Degree College was promoted to university level in 2001.
