Computer and Engineering Club

North South University Computer and Engineering Club (NSUCEC) is the one and only Engineering club in ECE department of North South University,  established in Fall 2015, affiliated from three of the most reputed clubs of NSU, which are NSU Computer Club (NSU CC) , NSU Wireless Forum (NSU WF) and NSU Society of Science, Engineering and Technology (NSU SSET). NSUCEC has devoted itself towards one large goal, ‘Creating Tech Leaders of Tomorrow’, with all the active members of CC, WF and SSET. The main objective of NSUCEC is to promote the ECE department of NSU to offer extensive study of the IT and Telecom industries of Bangladesh through seminars, workshops, publications and study tours. It is also the mission of NSUCEC to create a relationship between industries and academy.

NSUCEC has already begun its journey with very promising results by organizing the Orientation program of TOP-UP IT training program in NSU run by the IT Division of Bangladesh Government. We received over 600 membership requests from the NSUers. Moreover, also participated in the NSU Club Fair 2015 by setting up an elegant booth where participants challenged each other into dance battles on many different famous songs. Soon later, CEC arranged a field trip as a means of a ice breaking program for the new recruits. NSUCEC also got the opportunity to organize the mega computing event ACM ICPC for the previous three years and a public lecture on ‘The Frontiers of Science and Pathways for Discoveries in the 21st century’ delivered by Dr. Zahid Hasan, on 26th November, 2015 in the campus auditorium of NSU. Besides, NSUCEC also organized their own event, Info Fest V.2 included three informative seminars regarding information technology and featured a workshop on Robotics for technology enthusiast NSUers. The event tagline was, “Technology for future”. NSU hosted its first ‘Capstone Project Showcase’ on 1st December,2015 which was organized by the members of CEC. NSUCEC participated in the 24 years celebration of NSU which took place from 3rd March to 11th March 2016. Throughout the celebration NSUCEC had a booth which was an instant hit. NSUCEC also arranged different programs of the grand celebration event including the Tech Giant Meet-Up (Season 1) in collaboration with NSU Alumni Association of School of Engineering and Physical Sciences (AASEPS). After that, NSUCEC arranged a Women Techmakers seminar in the middle of March 2016 by Women techmakers group, which is associated with GDG. Along with that, a seminar on NASA space app challange by BASIS Students Forum was also organised. In October 2016, NSUCEC hosted a program on Digital World 2016 campus activation in collaboration with BASIS Students Forum. NSUCEC has organized their major event Cybernauts, which is one of the biggest National IT events in all over Bangladesh. This was a 4-day long event which was held from 28th to 31st October 2016 where it covers 4 competitions: National Programming Contest, Line Follower Robotics Contest, Engineering Project Showcase, and Cyber Athletics. NSUCEC has conducted a seminar on “Career in freelancing” by Codertrust ,which is a freelancing training institute of Bangladesh. In January 2017, BASIS SoftExpo campus activation program was arranged by NSUCEC in collaboration with BASIS Students Forum.

NSUCEC has still been performing brilliantly from its foundation. And it also plans to take its activities to an international level. Also, we started to collaborate with universities of different countries to organize international IT innovation and Engineering Olympiads. Our motto is to organize events for the NSUers and to promote and spread the level of honor not just of the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) but of the whole School of Engineering and Physical Science (SEPS) of NSU.
