History of IUBAT CSE
The Department of Computer Science and Engineeringwas established on January 31, 1992, as one of the pioneering departments of IUBAT, keeping in mind the rapid and widespread use of computers and information technology in all sectors of economy both at home and abroad for which highly trained computer specialists were required. The Department started with the Diploma in Computer Science (DCS) program with the technical support and co-operation of Asian Institute of Technology (AIT), Bangkok, and degree program with Assumption University (ABAC), Bangkok. Initially, the department was located at its Dhanmondi campus and later, in January 2005, IUBAT has moved to its permanent campus.
The department offers Certificate, Diploma and Bachelor degree programs and also it conducts foundation and specialized courses for other departments of the University. Currently, it is working on its Master’s degree program.
Diploma in Computer Science and Engineering (DCSE)
Diploma in computer science and Engineering is a program of 20 months where students are exposed to Basics of Computers, Computer Architecture, and software like C, C++, VB, LINUX, Database Management Systems, Web Technology, Multimedia and the latest .NET software.
In addition they are also exposed to PC Hardware, Maintenance and Networking. On completion of Diploma in Computer Science, there are plenty of career opportunities in the IT industry. The students can go for further studies like the BCSE course and onward. They can find openings as software engineers, system developers and programmers.
Computer Science and engineering department has a wing, which is called Computer Education and Training Center (CETC). The major role of this center is to offer various training programs like Basic Computing, Graphics Design, and Software Development etc for both IT and Non IT personnel.
The Department of Computer Science and Engineering is highly equipped with tangible and intangible resources to ensure appropriate teaching-learning and research activities that includes laboratory, computer hardware, software, firmware, books, research materials, audio visuals and so on.
The department has got highly proficient software and hardware engineers and professionals for sharing technical and professional knowledge in the mentioned areas of computer sciences and engineering. Moreover, the department derives benefit from IUBAT’s collaborative linkage with 62 universities throughout the globe and most of these universities help the modern teaching-learning process bringing in the changes taking place over the all continents.
IUBAT CSE is always nurturing innovation and academic excellence in ICT sectors. It mostly focuses software and software systems which includes theory, design, development, and application. IUBAT CSE also nurture the students to learn design and analyze algorithms to solve programs and study the performance of computer hardware and software which is intensively laboratory oriented. As IUBAT CSE is believing in hands-on experience, each and every semester the department is upgrading and improving the laboratories. The laboratories are: Physics Laboratories, Digital and Analog Electronics Laboratories, Microprocessor and Interfacing Laboratory, Data Communication and Computer Networks Laboratories, Programming Laboratory, Software Engineering Laboratory etc.
Research and Development
Students of IUBAT University not only focus on education but they also participate on research, software development and programming contests. This opportunity gives student an experience of real life projects developments and teamwork. Some key developments and researches are given below:

IUBAT assesses fees for students on credit hour basis. The rate of other charges such as admissions, semester fee, other activities fees and refundable library and laboratory deposits in details have been provided in the Financial Information section of this Bulletin. This section also provides information on financing arrangement including merit-scholarships at the point of admission, cash rebate, in-course fee waiver scholarship, different scholarships, on-campus work opportunities, financial assistance in the form of grants, installment payment, deferred payment student loan etc.
The standing IUBAT policy to cater to needs of all qualified students who aspire for higher professional education regardless of the income level of his/her family through appropriate educational financing arrangement under the concept Knowledge Based Area Development: A Step Towards Community Self-Reliance applies to BCSE program.
The Financial Information section also contains information on tuition fees for international students, including special fees for students from SAARC countries as well as Least Developed Countries (LDC) of Asia and Africa.
The courses are divided into languages, general education courses, computer core courses, and engineering and specialization courses.
The curriculum on computer science and engineering emphasizes a broad foundation of computer software and hardware. The first year courses broaden the general education base of the students as well as acquaint them with basic languages of communication like English and the knowledge of Humanities, Social Sciences, Physical Sciences, Mathematics and Statistics. Moreover, the students learn to get used to computer usage.
The second year courses acquaint the students with analytical and basic tools like electronics, basic mechanics, advance programming features, data structures and algorithms, digital circuits, assembly language, operating system, theory of computation, database management and the like.
The third year courses provide for an in-depth study of some specific core and specialized topics like computer architectures, compiler design, computer trouble shooting and computer graphics.
The final year of the program provides further specialization in software engineering, computer architectures, structures of different languages, microcomputer interfacing techniques, computer networks and selection from some elective subjects.
The hands on experience is provided for by introducing laboratory works as one hour credit courses in appropriate fields in different years of the program.
