  • A 3-year bachelor’s or equivalent degree in mathematics, applied physics, engineering, computer science & engineering, and information & communication technology or any related areas from an accredited public or private university in Bangladesh or abroad with a grade point average of at least 2.5 (in the 4.0 scale) or minimum of 2nd class (55% marks) in BSc-Hons/MSc may be admitted on condition that at least 15 credits of remedial courses must be completed at NSU in order to be a regular student in the MS in Electronic & Telecommunication Engineering program.
  • Acceptable score in the NSU administered Admission Test or a score of 1100 in the Quantitative and Verbal part of GRE General Test.
  • Three letters of recommendation

The program curriculum consists of a minimum of 33 credit hours including 6 core courses, 3 electives, and 1 graduate thesis work. Core classes engage the student in the study of telecommunications system, network and technology, with laboratory exercises, and designing telecommunications systems effectively within organizations. The elective courses provide a balanced diversification in the broader field of electronics and communications. The breakdown of the 33 credits is as follows:

  • 6 courses from the core subjects:        18 credits
  • 3 courses from the elective subjects:    9 credits
  • Graduate Thesis/(Project+course):      6 credits

Thesis and Projects Options (must choose any one option)

(1) Option 1: ETE 699 Graduate Thesis         6 credits

(2) Option 2: ETE 599 Graduate Project+ an elective course

  • ETE 599 Graduate Project                      3 credits
  • One elective course                                   3 credits

Total:                                                                 6 credits

Degree Requirements

The minimum and maximum time to complete the degree requirements are 3 semesters and 5 years respectively from the initial enrolment of the Masters program. The residency requirement is 24 credit hours including the Masters Thesis. A maximum of 9 credits are transferable from other universities.

The students must secure a CGPA of 3.0 for the award of the MS-ETE degree. A student must complete required number of credits with minimum CGPA of 3.0 on a 4 point scale to earn the degree. To continue in the program a student must maintain a minimum CGPA of 3.0 at all levels of academic advancement. If in any semester the CGPA drops below 2.70 the student will be on academic probation. If a student remains on probation for two consecutive semesters, he/she will be dismissed from the program
