The School of Science and Engineering (SSE), previously named School of Engineering & Computer
(SECS), traces its root back to 1993 when Independent University, Bangladesh (IUB) was founded
and its outer
campus in Chittagong was emerged. Later in 2013, Chittagong Independent University (CIU) was
the journey of SSE took off with new goals. Today this school continues to be one of the major
CIU aiming to produce world class engineering graduates.
In addition to offering B.Sc. in Computer Science & Engineering (CSE), Electrical & Electronic Engineering (EEE)
Electronics & Telecommunication Engineering (ETE), SSE has added one Post Graduate
program in Information and Communication Technology (ICT).
Considering only permanent faculties currently the school’s teacher student ratio is 1:14.
from Chittagong University of Engineering and Technology (CUET) and Chittagong University (CU)
have made the
school vibrant and diversified. In order to meet the quality and competency of our students we
arrange seminars and workshops, a week or month long training programs (such as Android Apps
Robotics, Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) and Industrial Automation, Advanced Programming
our clubs. Moreover, arranging programs like National High School Programming Contest (NHSPC)
2015 and also
Inter School & Colleges Programming Contest, Workshop on Programming for High School and College
etc, we have shown our commitment towards local society too. Ongoing monthly seminars from
inspired the academics and students.
SSE will support the development of our country by discovering and advancing knowledge through
dissemination of knowledge through teaching and outreach, creative experimentation of ideas and
technology needs. Excellence and diversity in research are essential to our mission built on our
collaboration with industry and government research laboratories. SSE foster, create and develop
amongst students to become future leaders in academia, government, industries and
through a rigorous curriculum of theory and application that develops the ability to solve
individuality and in teams.
We envisioned CIU to be known as the number one destination in the country for science and
education. At SSE we facilitate our students with contemporary and rigorous educational
containing modern curriculum, up-to-date lab and field work. We focus to provide an atmosphere
facilitates personal commitment to the educational success of students in an environment that
diversity and community by promoting education and research partnerships with different
industries. We have designed undergraduate programs that integrate global awareness,
and team building across the curriculum. Introducing Post Graduate program in different
departments would be one of our next central activities within shortest possible time focusing
internationally recognized research programs Graduate education and training that prepares
interdisciplinary engineering research and advanced problem solving. We target to build
service to meet society’s needs.
The objectives of SSE are to disseminate, create and advance knowledge wisdom and understanding
and to offer
education of the high standard by teaching, research, training and extension program. Our effort
is to give
effect to the spirit of national and international good will, friendship and partnership, as
well as the
desire of our people for the overall benefits off society and sustainability of engineering
how. Furthermore, our objectives include-
Develop interdisciplinary, problem-based academic program aligned with engineering and
Integrate IT based resources from around the world.
Create applied, evidence-given research activities on problem solving of national and
SSE students are associated with several clubs (e.g. iSEC, Robotics Club) of CIU for their
activities. The club which is mostly linked with SSE activities is Independent Science &
(iSEC). The SSE activities are divided into following sectors which are important for a student
his/her knowledge to meet the demand of modern technological world.
