Overview of Faculty Of Science, Engineering & Technology (FSET)

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. At present the faculty is offering three undergraduate programs viz.

(1) B.Sc. Engg. in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE)

(2) B.Sc. Engg. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE)

(3) B.Sc. Engg. in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering (ETE)

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 the USTC.

Teaching Methodology and Facilities

The B.Sc. Engg. courses at USTC are four-year degree programs. 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, practical / 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 industrial tour and attachment. This will make them skilled and efficient in sustainable technological development for the 21st Century. Full-time INTERNET and Wi– Fi 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 the USTC campus a true 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.

Grading system

The performance of a student in a given course is made through Continuous Evaluation that comprises of Class Test, Class Attendance, Homework / Assignment and a Semester Final Examination. Letter Grades and Grade Points are used to evaluate the performance of a student in a given course. The grading system at USTC is as per with national and international standards, which is also in sharp compliance of the University Grants Commission’s guidelines. A+, A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C & D are the passing grades while F is the failing grade.

The numerical equivalence of the grades as used in calculating the CGPA (Cumulative Grade Point Average) are as follows:
