Undergraduate Program:

B.Sc. Engineering in Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) program prepares today’s students into tomorrow’s engineers. The program has a built-in system of orientation for the graduates to keep themselves updated with the rapid changes in the computer world. The focus of the program is on building the strength of the students in computer engineering. The undergraduate program is covered by a set of theoretical courses along with a set of laboratory courses to support them. The total credit hours of B.Sc. Engineering in Computer Science and Engineering degree at BUBT is 163 credits consisting of 120 theory credits and 37 lab credits and a capstone project of 6 credits. The assignment of credits to a theoretical course follows a different rule from that of a sessional course. In case of theoretical courses, a three-hour lecture per week per semester is equivalent to one credit. For lab courses, credits are half of the class hours per week per semester. For the need to be compatible with modern technology, we have to update our syllabus.

At present, the department of CSE offers the following program:

  1. B.Sc. in Computer Science and Engineering (Regular)

  2. B.Sc. in Computer Science and Engineering (For Diploma Holders)

Minimum Credit Hours:

For completing the degree, student has to complete total 163 credit hours where total theory courses are 120 credit hours and lab courses 37 credit hours and a capstone project of 6 credits. For theory courses, one credit hour has been conducted for 1 hour per week. So, for a theory course of 3 credit hours, (3x1) =3 hours’ class has been conducted per week. Total 13 weeks of classes are conducted in a semester. Hence, in a semester, total conducting hour for a theory course of 3 credit hours is (3x1x13) = 39 hours = 2340 minutes and for one credit hour of theory course, the conducting hour is (1x13) = 13 hours = 780 minutes. For lab courses, one credit hour has been conducted for 2 hours per week. So, for a lab course of

1.5 credit hours, (1.5x2) = 3 hours’ class has been conducted per week. Total 13 weeks of classes are conducted in a semester. Hence, in a semester, total conducting hour for a lab course of 1.5 credit hours is (1.5x2x13) = 39 hours = 2340 minutes and for one credit hour of lab course, the conducting hour is (1x2x13) = 26 hours = 1560 minutes.

Final-year Design Project

Final year projects are significantly important in engineering programs because they provide students with an opportunity to show that their practical knowledge developed in the professional capabilities expected of graduating engineers, in particular, a capacity to personally manage and conduct a complex, open-ended project. These projects also indicate program standards for accreditation. However, to write up the final year project report has to follow clear academic guidelines which must reflect integrity, creativity, standard, and research skills. For the final year design project, we introduce the capstone project (CSE 498).

Capstone Project Conducting Procedure:

The capstone project is conducted for three consecutive semesters. In the beginning, students form a team of five members and mention their interested area. Faculty members also provide their research interest area. Based on their (faculty and student) common interest the teams are assigned their supervisor. In the first semester of the capstone project, a course teacher takes classes on research methodology and many more as well as supervisor guide the students to do the tasks are provided by the course teacher. In the second semester of the capstone project, students communicate only with their supervisor to complete their project and partial report writing. In the final semester of capstone project, students complete their report writing, an evaluation committee provides feedback on the report and student corrects them if it is needed. Students also attend a final defense in front of their supervisor, evaluation team, internal, and external members. Figure 1 shows the Gantt chart of the capstone project guideline and figure 2 describes the conducting procedure of the capstone project throughout the three semesters.
