Message from Pro Vice-Chancellor

First of all, I am gratefully remembering the greatness Rabbul Alamin. It feels me prodigious pleasure to write a few words about my best-loved Chittagong University of Engineering & Technology (CUET), one of the few leading and promising Engineering Universities of Bangladesh, established in 1968 as Chittagong Engineering College in a greenery landscape located about 25 km South- East away from the Chottograrm City centre. Only three initial Departments through which Degrees were offered like B.Sc. in Civil Engineering, B.Sc. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering and B.Sc. in Mechanical Engineering with a total of only 120 students as yearly intake. Later Chittagong Engineering College was converted to Bangladesh Institute of Technology, Chittagong an autonomous institute in 1986 and finally the institute was upgraded and renamed as Chittagong University of Engineering & Technology (CUET) on 1st September 2003.

Greetings from Chittagong University of Engineering & Technology. I am honored and humble to you for the visit in Chittagong University of Engineering & Technology University website. It is my great opportunity to have the 2nd Pro-Vice Chancellor to serve this University.
