With the aim of expanding quality education in Engineering & Technology and to expose the students to the latest development in the rapidly changing technological arena, USTC, the largest priVate University of Bangladesh, took an excellent initiative of establishing the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology. Former hon’ble Minister of Science and Technology of the People’s Republic of Bangladesh lt. Gen. (Retd) Md. Nooruddin Khan was present as the chief guest in the inauguration ceremony. At present the Faculty is offering three undergraduate programmes viz BSc Engg in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE), BSc Engg in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE), BSc Engg in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering (ETE) and two postgraduate programmes viz Master in Information Technology (MIT) and Post-Graduate Diploma in Information Technology (PGDIT). The courses are governed according to the internal rules & regulations of the Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology within the broad framework of the policies, statutes and guidelines of USTC.

Teaching Methodology and Facilities

BSc Engg courses at USTC are four-year degree programmes. The whole duration of each course is divided into eight (8) semesters. Students will have to appear in the semester final examination at the end of each semester. The teaching methodology comprises of extensive theoretical, practica [laboratory classes.

The Faculty is having well-equipped laboratories, which are rich with sophisticated and latest software and electronic as well as communication equipment/ trainer. Strong emphasis will be given on laboratory-based courses and the students will work independently under the guidance of expert teachers. Simultaneously the students will also be trained with sufficient tour and attachment to national and international industrial giants in the relevant field. This will make them skilled and efficient enough to deal with latest and sustainable communication technology for the 21 st Century. Full-time INTERNET facilities are available in the Faculty.

Medium of Instruction

English is the major language of communication in the scientific and technological world. The medium of instruction at USTC is English. Students are required to have proficiency in both spoken and written English although the students will be taught two courses on English in two consecutive semesters to make them skilled in technical & communicative English. Moreover, the presence of several hundred foreign students made USTC campus truly cosmopolitan, where the medium of communication among the individuals is English. This helps our students a lot to improve their English proficiency in a short span of time.
