Brief Info About BUET
I am Writing about BUET. Needless to say that it is the best university of Bangladesh. Not only the civilian students study here, Bangladesh army, Navy and Air force send their best students here to complete the graduation.
BUET is one of the oldest educational institutions of Bangladesh. It started its journey as Dhaka Survey School in 1876. Later it was named as Ahsanullah Engineering College in the year 1912. When Pakistan formed, the name changed in 1962 as EPUET and after the liberation of Bangladesh, it has been named as BUET. So a great history of this University.
It is actually very tough to get admitted into BUET. It is not because of merit and talent, it has very limited seats. Only 1900 students can take admission per year.
No one can give admission exam for the second time. So it is really tough.
There are totally 18 departments in BUET. I am writing about some of the departments.
