Dr. Mohammad Rezaul Bari
Associate Professor & Chair

Welcome to the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE), one of the oldest yet most forward-looking and vibrant departments at North South University (NSU). Since its inception in 1993 with only one undergraduate program in Computer Science, the department has incorporated many positive additions and modifications in response to the continued changes in national and global technological demands and needs of the Electrical, Electronics, Telecommunications, and Computing industries. Today, we offer three undergraduate degree programs, namely Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Electronic Engineering (BS EEE), Bachelor of Science in Electronics and Telecommunication Engineering (BS ETE) and Bachelor of Science in Computer Science and Engineering (BS CSE) and three graduate programs as Master of Science (MS) in EEE, MS in ETE and MS in CSE. At present, the department is actively seeking accreditation from Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) for all its undergraduate programs.

Our strengths are our outstanding faculty members, excellent laboratory facilities, and strong commitment to research. All of our faculty members have MS and/or PhD degrees primarily from USA, Canada, UK, Japan and Australia. The ECE programs are extensively laboratory-oriented. The practical and hands-on laboratory experiences begin from the very first year and are integral to the academic programs. ECE students are broadly encouraged to gain out-of-the-classroom academic and research experiences, produce engineering and scientific publications, and participate in various co-curricular activities. In order to foster these activities, the ECE department maintains program-oriented and student-centric engineering forums such as IEEE Student Branch, ACM Problem Solving Community, Women in Engineering etc. The department also routinely participates in the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contests (ICPC).

The education and research activities of ECE department are strongly tied to and enhanced by the strong collaborations with the other departments in the School of Engineering and Physical Sciences (SEPS), especially with the Department of Mathematics and Physics. We believe that Mathematics, Physics and other basic sciences are integral part of engineering innovation and growth. The ECE department also has excellent relationships with local and international industries related to Electrical Engineering, Telecommunications, and Computing, where our students usually engage in joint projects and/or internship experiences.

I encourage you to explore the ECE academic programs, the research interests of the faculties, and activities of our students through this website. We are always keen to create new opportunities of collaboration with our stakeholders.

I thank you again for your interest in the Department of ECE at NSU. If you have any query, please do not hesitate to contact me personally through .
