Rajshahi
University of Engineering
Engineering
& Technology, commonly known as RUET
RUET
(রুয়েট), is one of the seventeen PhD granting public research universities in Bangladesh. It is one of the five prestigious public universities in the country that specialises in the field of engineering. RUET
RUET
was founded in 1964 as Rajshahi
Rajshahi
Engineering
Engineering
College with a limited number of students. It was then changed to Bangladesh Institute of Technology (BIT) in 1986 and was finally renamed Rajshahi University of Engineering
Engineering
& Technology (RUET) in 2003. At present, more than 3500 students are pursuing their higher study in this green campus including under-graduate and post-graduate with over 250 prominent faculty members in diverse field of expertise. The medium of instruction and necessary assessment of this university is English.[3]

History[edit] Before the independence of Bangladesh, the then Government of Pakistan, to meet the increasing demand of professional engineers for the national development, established Rajshahi
Rajshahi
Engineering
Engineering
College in 1964 as a faculty of engineering under the University of Rajshahi. It was the second engineering college established in the then East Pakistan.[4] Rajshahi
Rajshahi
Engineering
Engineering
College ( was commonly known as REC) started its journey with only three departments: Mechanical Engineering, Electrical & Electronic Engineering
Engineering
and Civil Engineering, offering bachelor's degree programs only. It accepted its first class of 120 students in the academic session of 1964/65 and the second class of like number in the academic session of 1965/66. The teaching faculty consisted of 19 faculty members at that time.[5] After the independence of Bangladesh
Bangladesh
(1971), the administration of the college was controlled by the Ministry of Education of Bangladesh
Bangladesh
and academic curriculum was controlled by University of Rajshahi. However, the infrastructural development and maintenance was taken care of by the Public Works Department of Government of Bangladesh. To remove these kinds of aforesaid problems several committees and commissions were formed since 1973. On the recommendation of these committees and commissions, in 1986, Rajshahi
Rajshahi
Engineering
Engineering
College was converted to an institute and was named Bangladesh
Bangladesh
Institute of Technology (BIT), Rajshahi
Rajshahi
to enhance the technical education.[6] In September, 2003, the institute was upgraded to a university and was named as Rajshahi
Rajshahi
University of Engineering
Engineering
& Technology (RUET) to enhance the technical education and research.[7] From that time, the university is financed by the Government through the University Grants Commission (UGC) of Bangladesh. The university is an autonomous statutory organisation of the Government of Bangladesh
Bangladesh
functioning within the " Rajshahi
Rajshahi
University of Engineering
Engineering
& Technology: Act 2003". Campus[edit] RUET
RUET
is situated in the northern part of Bangladesh, in the city of Rajshahi— the educational center of North Bengal.[8] The campus of RUET
RUET
presents a spectacular harmony of architecture and natural beauty.[3] The distinguishable seasons in Bangladesh
Bangladesh
are summer and winter. In summer season (May–October) temperature of Rajshahi
Rajshahi
is hot and typically 25-40 degree Celsius and sometimes humid. In winter season (November–April) temperature is moderate typically 8-20 degree Celsius. Faculties and departments[edit] RUET
RUET
has currently eighteen departments under four faculties. The university has taken to plan open more departments which was under process. Faculty of Mechanical Engineering[edit]

Research
Research
institutes[edit] RUET
RUET
has currently following research institutes:

Institute of Information and Communication Technology (IICT) Institute of Energy and Environmental Studies (IEES)

RUET
RUET
has already taken plan to open more research institutes to enhance the technical education and research activities. Research
Research
and extension unit[edit] The research and outreach program of RUET
RUET
is conducted by the research and extension unit. The main responsibilities of this unit is management of research, innovation, research publications, research planning, implementation, research related activities and research related communication with public and private sectors in nation and international level.[16] International collaboration[edit] RUET
RUET
has collaborative agreements with foreign institute and will extend further to enhance the research work, technical knowledge and skills. The collaborative areas covered are joint research activities, joint hosting of seminars, conferences and symposia, exchange of students (both UG and PG), exchange of faculty members, exchange of academic materials, publications and information etc. At present, the collaboration of RUET
RUET
exists with the following ones.

Kitami Institute of Technology
Kitami Institute of Technology
(KIT)[17][18] University of the Ryukyus[19][18] Saitama University[20]

International conferences[edit] For the last few years, RUET
RUET
has been organising national and international conferences in its campus to enhance the research capabilities of its students and faculties. Among the conferences organised by RUET, the following ones are notable.[21]

International Conference on Mechanical, Industrial and Materials Engineering
Engineering
(ICMIME): Organised biennially by the faculty of Mechanical Engineering[22] International Conference on Electrical, Computer and Telecommunication Engineering
Engineering
(ICECTE): Organised biennially by the faculty of Electrical and Computer Engineering International Conference on Planning, Architecture
Architecture

Engineering
(ICPACE): Organised biennially by the faculty of Civil Engineering International Conference on Electrical and Electronic Engineering (ICEEE): Organised biennially by the department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering[23] International Conference on Computer & Information Engineering (ICCIE): Organised biennially by the department of Computer Science and Engineering[24]

Admission[edit] Getting into the major engineering university like RUET, it appears to be the toughest public university admission test battle to the aspiring candidates. RUET
RUET
has a very selective approach when it comes to admitting a certain number of students into various disciplines of engineering each year.[25] Undergraduate[edit] The undergraduate admissions process begins after all education boards of the country declare the results of the Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC) examinations. After initial assortment according to HSC result, a certain number of eligible candidates are shortlisted for an elaborate written test.[25] Usually application for admission start from September of each year, and an admission test is usually held in October or November as per decision of the admission committee.[citation needed] A total of 875 students were admitted in 2016.[26] Post-graduate[edit] Admission notices for the post-graduate program usually circulate twice a year, in April and October. The notice is advertised on the university website. The list of valid candidates is published on the university website upon completion of the preliminary process and call for viva.[citation needed] Facilities[edit] Laboratories[edit] Most of the newly established departments of the RUET
RUET
don't have enough laboratory facilities. But the older ones have enough laboratory facilities not only for academic research but also for consultancy services.[27] RUET
RUET
is taking steps for establishing laboratory facilities for the newly established departments and for enhancing laboratory facilities for the older ones.[28] Faculty of Civil Engineering[edit] Department of Civil Engineering[edit]

Further Development[edit] In February, 2017, Executive Committee of National Economic Council (ECNEC) has approved 3.40 billion Taka to implement a mega project for the RUET, aiming to well decorate and development the whole campus and its education and research. The ECNEC approved the project in the name of "Further Development Project of RUET".[36] Student life[edit] Accommodation[edit] Student dormitories (called halls) are important features in campus life. There are seven residential halls. One of them, namely Deshratna Sheikh Hasina Hall, is for female students and the remaining ones are for male students. The administrative head of a hall is its provost, usually chosen from the more senior teachers. The halls are mostly named after national heroes and leaders. These are listed below with their capacities:[37]

Name of the halls Capacity
