Information: Institute of Information Technology (IIT), University of Dhaka started its journey in June 2001 to create efficient manpower in information technology. IIT currently offers Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering - BSSE, Master of Science in Software Engineering (MSSE), Master in Information Technology (MIT) and Post Graduate Diploma in Information Technology (PGDIT). Apart from its regular activities, it also provides state-of-the-art researches and these are published in world class journals and conferences.
IIT has a silent ambience and is adjacent to the Dhaka University Science Library. The four-storied red ceramic IIT building contains six software laboratories, one microprocessor laboratory and two large classrooms. The laboratories and classrooms are air-conditioned and equipped with multimedia, document camera system and Internet facilities.
Under the IT portfolio, the subject software engineering is getting increasing demand in the job market. To fulfill the expanding software industry demands, IIT has been offering undergraduate program Bachelor of Information Technology with major in Software Engineering.
The Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering - BSSE degree is centered on the development and management of quality measured software systems. It covers detail study that commence with analysis and design, coding, testing, through to deployment. The BIT(SE) degree will provide a methodical, work integrated study spanning the development, maintenance and operation of software. BIT(SE) program will be a four-year industry-oriented degree. BSSE program intends to develop in students strong communication skills together with an outward worldly focus, positive personality and business attitudes.
Software engineering is a systematic and disciplined approach to develop software. It applies computer science, mathematics, general education and business principles and practices to the creation, operation and maintenance of software systems. The Bachelor of Science in Software Engineering - BSSE degree aims at the development and management of quality measured software systems. It covers detail study that incorporates analysis and design, coding, testing, and deployment. The BSSE degree provides a methodical, work-integrated study aiming the development, maintenance and operation of software. The degree will particularly suit the students with high technical aspirations and strong communication skills.
BSSE program is a four-year industry-oriented degree. Three years of study is followed by a half-year industry placement before the final semester. Students are assisted by the Institute in their placement for internship. They integrate their industry experience within their studies upon return for their final semester. This develops students in strong communication skills together with an outward worldly focus, positive personality and business attitudes. This program enhances students' capability and competence to deliver at different technical roles and management positions.
Admission: Each applicant must fulfill the admission requirements as laid down by IIT. The Admission Test into the first semester is held annually. Thirty students are enrolled in a year from Dhaka University Ka-Unit merit list.
