KUET: All the facts nobody told you
Khulna University of Engineering & Technology, which is situated in Khulna, was established in 1967 as “Khulna Engineering College”. So initially, it was not founded as a university. You may wonder how an Engineering college was converted into a public university. Let’s take a sneak peek.
In 1971, the development activities came to a standstill because
of the war-state. After the liberation war, in 1974, the academic activities
were restart and got on track by the special direction of Bangabandhu Sheikh
Mujibur Rahman. In 1986, Khulna Engineering college converted into an
autonomous institution which name was BIT (Bangladesh Institute of Technology).
And finally, in 2003, the BIT (Khulna) gets its recognition as an Engineering
University after several successful movements. So, KUET has experienced so many
ups and downs along with the drastic transformation in 54 years of period.
Keeping the history of the evolution of KUET aside, let’s take a glance at its academic prospects. It has 20 departments under three faculties.
Among them, 16 departments serve undergraduate courses.
