Department of Computer Science and Engineering
The Department of Computer Science and Engineering strives for graduating highly competent students with the potential of becoming the leaders in their field and also to impart knowledge which allows them to understand the implications of their work on both to themselves as well to the society as a whole.
Department of Computer Science and Engineering at ULAB, since its inception, has been offering an undergraduate program in Computer Science and Engineering with focus on developing skills for ICT industries worldwide. The designed program provides students with fundamental skills needed to become an accomplished IT specialist. The program also aims at a wider knowledge of the subject, rather than a mere understanding of the existing commercial approaches. The degree is designed for a wide range of students, including those who wish to pursue a career in software engineering, computer programming or related areas, and also those who wish to move on to study for higher degrees in the computing and information technology areas, either at home or abroad.
The department believes in a philosophy of Active Learning which is reflected in our curriculum and teaching styles. The Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) curriculum has been designed with both theoretical and industry oriented courses. The department provides state of the art laboratory facilities, with guidance from the top notch faculties, to bring out the best from the students. Departmental active collaboration with local and international reputed companies is keeping both CSE students and faculty updated with industry innovations and requirements. In their last academic year, students will be able to choose a concentration area or any other elective courses to focus their career according to their interest. Furthermore, the Liberal Arts curricular framework will help the students to acquire an openness of vision to become adaptable and ever-effective professionals of this century and for the time to come. The program objectives address our goal of graduating highly competent students with a potential of becoming leaders in their careers and add value to the society.
Department of Computer Science and Engineering at ULAB, since its inception, has been offering the undergraduate program in Computer Science and Engineering with more focus on the ICT industries worldwide. The designed program delivers the fundamental skills needed to become a Computer Scientist. The program also aims to a wider knowledge of the subject, rather than just an understanding of existing commercial approaches, so that the student’s understanding and knowledge can adapt and evolve to match the skills that will be required in the coming century. The degree is designed for a wide range of students, including those who wish to pursue a career in software engineering or computer programming or related areas, based on strong technical competence in software system design and interfacing, and also those who wish to move on to study for higher degrees in the computing and information technology areas either at home or abroad. The department is well accepted by different professional bodies through participation in different activities related to ICT. The department is already engaged in international conferences like ICCIT and ICECE and programming contest like National Computer Programming Contest and ICPC.
Long Range Goals:
- Quality teaching and learning environment
- Industry Academia Collaborations
- Incubation of real-life developments with ICT industries
- Partnership with ICT Leaders both at home and abroad
- Research and developments
- ICT4D activities
Short Range Goals:
- Develop course curricula based on industry requirements
- Deliver course lessens with industry focus
- Nurture creativity and innovations
- Joint research initiatives with the ICT industry
To produce highly competent graduates who will become leaders in Computer Science and Engineering.
- To prepare our students to meet high standard of excellence for professional career advancement.
- To create and disseminate new knowledge through basic and applied research in the field of Computer Science and Engineering.
Program Educational Objectives (PEO)
The Bachelor of Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) curriculum is designed considering the principles of engineering and science, ethical and societal aspects, environment, and sustainability for the professional accomplishments of the graduates. It is expected that the graduates of B.Sc. in CSE program will attain three Program Educational Objectives (PEOs) after three to five years of their graduation. The PEOs are listed below:
PEO 1: Possess theoretical and practical knowledge of Computer Science and Engineering blended with multi-disciplinary knowledge to establish successful computing or engineering careers.
PEO 2: Enhance skills and creativity, and embrace new computing technologies through self-driven life-long learning.
PEO 3: Apply professional, ethical, and social aspects of modern computing technology for analyzing and solving national and global problems.

Prof. Muhammad Golam Kibria, PhD, SMIEEE
I found that ULAB was one step ahead. Not only the teachers from my department (Computer Science & Engineering) but also from the other departments were very helpful. They worked to make the classes interesting and interactive as well. Moreover, their doors were always open for the students’ welfare.
“The library of ULAB had been one of the greatest resources for us. It was well arranged and had a rich collection of books. Apart from academic books, there were story books, biographies, books on poems, CDs etc both in Bangla and English. The students could also access to a section of the library for listening audios as a part of their courses.
“Being a student of CSE, I have spent most of the time in the computer labs. All had adequate number of up-to-date PCs. There were also labs dedicated to students for programming and software development. Wi-Fi connections were available all over campus.
“ULAB always emphasized extra-curricular activities. I was a member of ULAB Computer Programming Club. We practiced programming under a professional trainer. The club also facilitated the students interested in contests like national programming and cyber gaming contests.
“Our admin were very supportive and almost always had solution to our difficulties. They were always very active in working in due time. What I found good in ULAB is, in spite of being a big university, it continues to be well disciplined and maintain a congenial environment for both students and faculty members.
