Promotion and Graduation Policy


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 162 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. A student failing in any compulsory course will have to repeat the course.

The University follows the American System of Evaluation and Assessment prevalent in most North American universities and considers exemptions for prior credits earned by candidates beyond 12 years of education. Since, 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 know how of engineering, they will require completing 142 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.
