Background

University of Science and Technology Chittagong (USTC) was established as a Private University soon after Private University Act 1992 came into force when IAHS became its constituent body under Faculty of Medicine. The Janasheba Foundation has been its sponsoring organization and National Professor Dr. Nurul Islam was appointed the Vice Chancellor of USTC by Honourable Chancellor of the Universities and President of the People's Republic of Bangladesh (PRB). Since then USTC started functioning with two Faculties, namely, Faculty of Medicine and Faculty of Basic Medical and Pharmaceutical Sciences. MBBS and BPharm (Hons) Programmes are offered by these two Faculties. These two Faculties have been doing more than expectation and it is a matter of pride that Faculty of Medicine has a large number of foreign students today. Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology has opened up a new horizon for the Technological community of the country by launching a new Faculty entitled Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology (FSET)' in 1999 which is indeed another bold step by USTC in fulfilling its mission of expansion of higher education through private initiative. FSET had been started with the Department of Computer Science and Engineering since 1999 and now, this faculty constitutes with three (03) departments named as Computer Science & Engineering (CSE), Electrical & Electronic Engineering (EEE) and Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering (ETE).
