·      S/he has a minimum GPA of 2.5 in four subjects at “O” level and 2.5 in two subjects at “A” level in the scale of A=5, B=4, C=3, D=2, and E=1.

·      S/he will have to complete Basic Mathematics as non-credits Course in first semester; if he/she didn’t have mathematics in his/her H.S.C program.

·      A student only from science group in H.S.C/equivalent program will be eligible for admission.

 

Semester Schedule:

 

·      Spring semester Continue from March to August.

·      Fall semester continue from September to February.

 

Degree/ Graduation Requirements:

 

·      A student with 12 years formal pre-University education (i.e. S.S.C. + H.S.C. or its equivalent) must earn a total of 160.0 credits including internship/dissertation/project. A minimum GPA for graduation is 2.50 on a scale of 4.00 or any uniform system prescribed by the UGC.

 

·      Students with Diploma degree, under the Bangladesh Technical Education Board (BTEB) or any other similar body, have completed a year or more in addition to 12 years of the pre-university education and possess the technical and work based knowledge, they will require completing 140.0 credits for the B.Sc. in CE degree. Thus, the students will have the option of completing the degree program in less than four years’ time.
