Department of Computer Science and Engineering


Introduction to Program

Computer plays vital and in fact indispensable role in all fields of modern human activities. Consequently, Computer Science and Engineering has established itself as one of' the most important branches of engineering. Recent development in computer has a considerable impact on society. It has already expanded to all fields of study starting from genetic engineering to space technology. Recent development in Artificial Intelligence has taken the human history a new height. That day is not very far when man can make machine like him.

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering is one of the pioneer Departments of this Institute providing top-quality education in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) at its undergraduate program. ICT is the leading sector in present day. It is already declared as a thrust sector in Bangladesh. Keeping this in mind the department offers B. Sc in CSE program to produce computer specialists.

Brief History

The bachelor program B.Sc. (Eng.) in Computer Science & Engineering, offers the students a strong background in the core technical areas and exposure to the cutting-edge technologies where their engineering contribution will be utilized. The course involves study of computer architecture, computer systems and networks, theory and design of digital system and software engineering.

Within the context of lifelong learning, the university will build on its national and international reputation for innovative student-centered programs that enable students from diverse backgrounds to achieve their educational goals. The university is committed to building up academic excellence through curriculum, teaching, scholarship and services designed to help build up knowledge-based society with ensuring quality education. Tailoring the moral values and nurturing latent power of students will be facilitated to obtain placement in job market in such a manner as is ethically justified, religiously attestable, culturally harmonious and intellectually competent.

Grading System and Performance Evaluation

The total performance of a student in a given course is based on a scheme of continuous assessment. For theory courses this continuous assessment is made through Attendance, Class Tests and Assignments. This assessment is also made through Mid-term Examination and Semester Final Examination. The total marks distribution is as follows:

Mid-term Examination 20%
Assignment 10%
Class Tests 10%
Attendance & Behavior 10%
Final Examination 50%
