Overview

Keeping abreast of industry developments is an essential aspect of preparing students for their future careers. The Department of Computer Science & Engineering Industrial Advisory Board (CSE-IAB) of Bangladesh Army University of Engineering & Technology is vital in creating a strong link between industry and the department and is expected to contribute in achieving the department’s goals and objectives. Members of the department’s Industrial Advisory Board are professionals in industry and government who collaborate and build cooperative efforts with the department, advise on academic programs, and help in building future departmental directions.

Mission Statement

The Mission of the Industry Advisory Board is to create and foster a partnership between the CSE Department and its constituents that are the consumers of its graduates and its research. This collaboration will lead to each party having a better understanding of the objectives of the other as well as allowing each to better support the other in meeting those objectives.

Win-Win

  • Employers help to ensure availability of well prepared computer science and Engineering graduates and students.
  • Employers gain the ability to evaluate potential employees through internships, collaborative projects, and classroom interactions.
  • Employers gain access to faculty who can provide both technical expertise as well as assistance in recruiting students with appropriate skills and abilities.
  • Students gain a broader perspective and benefit from internship opportunities and exposure to real-world project management, teamwork, and customer oriented development.
  • Students get informed directly by industrial representatives to help develop their interest and the experience needed to start working in industry.
  • The department gains by IAB contribution to the department’s goals, ensuring the currency of the curriculum and degrees and thereby the positive enrollment and marketability of the department’s programs.
  • The department gains from the participation and contributions (both financial and otherwise) which support the department’s long term strategic plans.
  • Faculty gain industrial perspective on the fast past changes in the computing industry that affects the changes to the curriculum and instructional delivery.

The CSE-IAB has the following primary objectives:

  • To ensure that the curriculum and instructional programs within the CSE department at BAUET is of the highest quality.
  • To provide guidance in the transition of students to professionals.
  • To advance involvement and collaboration between students, faculty, and IAB members.

  • The computer-related industries that are located within the University’s region and/or nationwide interested in hiring the graduates from CSE department.
  • Formal meetings are held annually or semi-annually although the department expects and encourages active participation by IAB members throughout the year especially with regards to advisement on prospective changes in curriculum, equipment, or department strategies and goals.
