History

Khulna University of Engineering and Technology (KUET), started functioning from September 2003, is one of the five technological Universities in Bangladesh having an objective of achieving excellence in higher education, research and development in engineering and technology. This university was established as Khulna Engineering College in 1974, the college was later converted to a degree awarding autonomous institution called Bangladesh Institute of Technology (BIT), Khulna in July 1986 through an ordinance (No. XXI, 1986) of Government of Bangladesh. With a view to providing more opportunity and autonomy for the improvement in the quality of higher education and research in engineering and technology, the Institute was upgraded and renamed as Khulna University of Engineering and Technology in September 2003 under the “Khulna University of Engineering and Technology Act, 2003”.

The university is financed by the Government through the University Grants Commission. The university is an autonomous statutory organization of the Government of Bangladesh functioning within the “Khulna University of Engineering and Technology Act, 2003”. There are various statutory bodies like Syndicate, Academic Council, Finance Committee, Planning and Development Committee, Committee for Advance studies and Research, different Academic Committees etc. for policy and decision making on different aspects of the university under the frame work of the Act.

At present there are 132 faculty members, 143 postgraduate students and 1744 undergraduate students of which 15 foreign students. KUET offers B. Sc. Engineering degree in undergraduate program as well as M. Sc. Engineering, M.Phil. & Ph.D degree in postgraduate program.

There are several national and international research projects running in KUET. Among them in the Department of Civil Engineering European Commission (EC) funded four projects are running now successfully.

Halls of residence

Student dormitories (called "halls" in KUET) are important features in campus life. There are six residential halls to provide housing for KUET students. Among them the "Rokeya Hall" is for women, and the remaining five halls are for men studying in the undergraduate level.Administrative head of a hall is its provost and Assistant Provost, usually chosen from the more senior teachers of different faculties.
