The University originated in 1980 as College of Engineering at its temporary campus at Tejgaon, Dhaka under the University of Dhaka offering four years ‘ Bachelor degree in Civil, Electrical and Electronic, Mechanical Engineering ‘to help meet the growing need for advanced engineering education in Bangladesh. After a short span of time, College of Engineering is renamed as Dhaka Engineering College (DEC). Then the DEC shifted to its present permanent campus Gazipur City in 1983. DEC was converted to Bangladesh Institute of Technology (BIT), Dhaka as a degree awarding Institute by the government ordinance in 1986 to find solutions to various problems it had been facing since its inception. The journey of BIT, Dhaka was not also so smooth. It faced many problems and could overcame some of the problems faced by DEC. To alleviate this situation, from September 2003, Dhaka University of Engineering & Technology (DUET), Gazipur was created out of BIT, Dhaka. DUET has ultimately turned into an Institution, which can now boost its commitment to quality engineering education and has established a good reputation all over the world for the quality of its graduate.
