Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (BUET) is one of the leading engineering related higher education institutions in Bangladesh . It is located in Palashi area of Dhaka city.
In the initial stage
BUET was established as a survey academy for surveyors in the late nineteenth century. In 18 the then British Raj started an institution called Dhaka Survey School . The purpose was to impart technical education to government employees in British India at that time . In 1905, the then Khwaja Ahsanullah of Dhaka became interested in the school and donated 1.12 lakh taka to the school for the advancement of Muslim education. Thanks to his generous donations, it later expanded into a self-contained engineering school, and in recognition of this, the school was renamed Ahsanullah Engineering School in 1906 . Ahsanullah Engineering School started offering three-year diploma coursesDepartment of Civil Engineering , Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering . Initially, the school was housed in a rented building. Its own building was constructed near Shahidullah Hall of Dhaka University in 1908 on government initiative . A high chimney of this place used to carry this memory even a few days ago. In 1920 it was moved to its present location.
Initially the school was attached to Dhaka College . Later it was managed under the Director of Public Education. Mr. Anderson was appointed first principal. Then in 1932 Mr. B. C. Gupta and in 1937 Mr. Hakim Ali was appointed principal.
After World War 2
After the Second World War , the then government adopted a comprehensive plan for the industrialization of Bengal. Then there was a lack of skilled manpower in the area. A committee appointed by the then government set up an engineering college in Dhaka for 120 students in 4-year degree courses in mechanical, electrical, chemical and agricultural engineering and transferred the school to the then Palashi Barra to enroll 480 students in 4-year diploma courses in pur, mechanical and electrical engineering. Recommended. In May 1948, the government decided to set up an engineering college in Dhaka and examinations were held for the admission of students at the present Bengal Engineering College at Shibpur in West Bengal and Ahsanullah Engineering School in Dhaka.
After the partition
As a result of partition in 1947, all but a handful of teachers of Ahsanullah Engineering School moved to India and 5 teachers from India joined the school. In August 1947, it was upgraded to Ahsanullah Engineering College as the Faculty of Engineering under Dhaka University. Mr. Hakim Ali was appointed Principal.
February 1948, the then East Pakistan Government College approved the civil engineering , electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, Chemical Engineering , Agricultural Engineering and Textile Engineering in the four-year bachelor's degree and civil engineering, electrical engineering and mechanical engineering in the three-year diploma giving Begins to do. Eventually, however, metallurgical engineering was included instead of agriculture and textiles. In 1956, the semester system was introduced in the college and a new curriculum was approved. In 1956, the number of seats in degree courses was increased from 120 to 240. In 1958, the diploma course was discontinued from the college.
In 1951, T. H. Matthew and in 1954. M. A. Rashid became the principal of the college. During this time a joint management agreement was signed with the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas (now University) and Ahsanullah College, so that professors from there came to this country and played an important role in improving the quality of teaching, laboratory and curriculum. In order to improve the quality of teachers, some teachers are in Texas for postgraduate studies. & M. Was sent to college. During this time the Asia Foundation donated some necessary books to the library and the practice of rental libraries was introduced. While in college, there were only two dormitories for students: Main Hostel (now Dr. M. A. Rashid Bhavan) and South Hostel (now Nazrul Islam Hall).
As the University of Engineering and Technology
Pakistan 196 on June 1 it was given the name of a full-fledged engineering at the University of East Pakistan Engineering and Technical University (East Pakistan University of Engineering and Technology , or EPUET). The then director of technical education. M. A. Rashid became the first Vice Chancellor. Professor A. M. Ahmed became the first dean of the engineering faculty. Renowned mathematician M. A. Jabbar became the first registrar and Mamtajuddin Ahmed the first controller. Dr. M. A. The university was established on a solid foundation under the able leadership of Rashid.
After the establishment of the university, three new residential halls were built for the students. Professor Kabiruddin Ahmed was first appointed as the Director of Student Welfare. The Department of Architecture was first formed in 1972 in the Faculty of Architecture and Planning, for this department in Texas. & M. A few teachers from the college joined. Thus the University of Engineering started its journey with the departments of Pur, Yantra, Tarot, Kemi and Metal Engineering and Architecture in these two faculties of Engineering and Architecture. In 1984, the number of seats was increased from 240 to 360 to meet the growing demand. Construction of the present 6-storey civil engineering building began in the same year. In 1989-80 the number of seats was increased to 420. At this time a new department called Physical Planning was introduced in the Faculty of Architecture and Planning. This later became the Department of Urban and Regional Planning.
After the liberation war of Bangladesh in 1971 , its name was changed to its present name, i.e. Bangladesh University of Engineering.
