The Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) is one of the most trending engineering fields in the world. CSE blends together the field of Computer Science and Computer Engineering. The academic program includes core subjects such as Computer Programming, Mathematics, Data Structures, Algorithm Design, Theory of Computation, Database Management System, Networking, Information Security, Mobile Application Development, Web Design and Development. Students pursuing the course will gain profound knowledge about design, development and management of software as well as hardware. They will also increase their analytical capability, critical thinking, and problem solving skills.
CSE at IST
Institute of Science and Technology (IST) was offered B.Sc honors in Computer Science in 1993, the first institute under National University of Bangladesh. At the very beginning, the department had only 46 students in the program. Later in 2005-2006 it was renamed as Computer Science and Engineering (CSE). Since then IST is committed to excellence in learning, research and developing professionals in CSE, who make a difference internationally. So far in 23 batches more than 1400 students have been awarded B.Sc. Engineering. The M.Sc program started in 1996-1997 session. Now more than 400 students have completed M.Sc in CSE. Among the graduates 17 of them have completed Ph.D. We have full time faculty members including Professor, Associate Professor, Assistant Professor, and Lecturer from renowned universities like University of Dhaka, IST, Mawlana Bhashani Science and Technology University.

B.Sc. (Honors) in Electronics and Communication Technology was first introduced by National University of Bangladesh at the year 2005. Later, in 2007 it was converted to B.Sc. (Honors) in Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) by National University of Bangladesh.
The vision of this department is to produce professionally as well as globally competent graduates in the field of electrical and electronic engineering and serve society by addressing the challenges for sustainable development. Its mission is to create a conducive academic environment achieving the highest quality of education and cutting-edge research. Moreover, to enhance student’s good communication and leadership skills and their ability to use their engineering knowledge in a rapidly changing world by providing state-of-the-art resources. Lastly, to produce socially responsible and morally upright graduates.
Only 75 students can study this subject every year. So far 10 batches has successfully passed out and all the time IST ECE students secured the first position in National University of Bangladesh.
