    Is it possible to find user’s department history in Active Directory? If so, how can we get the information in VB.NET?

    Well, for starters, this will require changes to active directory itself, by enabling OU auditing. Once enabled, you will need to view the Event Viewer, possibly on the domain controller.

    Here's an article to get you started. https://www.lepide.com/how-to/audit-organizational-units-changes-in-active-directory.html

    You may need help from your AD Team to get this turned on. However, it will show only what is future from the point of turning the auditing on. If that is already enabled, then you can turn your attention to using C# to read/evaluate the audit log in Event Viewer.
