Type: School / College / University
Contributed By: Nayeem


The Islamic University of Technology (IUT) is a premier engineering institute situated at the outskirts of Dhaka City. Established in 1981, this institute first opened its freshly minted gates to students in 1988. Since then the University has enjoyed an ever growing stature, and now it stands as one of the very best in the country. Its campus is an architectural feat that blends both Islamic influences and modern inspirations. It is affectionately called “Red Heaven”, owing to the consistent reds that dye its buildings.

The Islamic University of Technology is one of Bangladesh’s only two international universities, run and funded by the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC). IUT utilizes a rigorous academic curriculum that seeks to mold individuals who are prepared for both their specific fields and to take on the problems of the wider world. IUT currently has five departments: Computer Science and Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Mechanical and Chemical Engineering, Civil and Environmental Engineering, and Technical and Vocational Education.

IUT offers Bachelor of Science and Master’s degrees, as well as Higher Diplomas and doctoral degrees. The quality of education offered here has earned it a glowing reputation and a high standing in Bangladeshi higher education. Along with academics, IUT stresses involvement in extracurricular fields, and its many clubs have made great strides in their short histories – IUT’s debating and photographic societies have earned nationwide acclaim. IUT offers a substantial number of yearly conventions, including the ICT Fest, Meccelaration, Essonance, Cennovation, along with conventions hosted by its clubs such as Break the Circle, IUT InterVarsity Debate, and so on.

IUT is primarily a residential university, and its red campus, complimented by encircling greens, serves as the perfect home for its multi-cultural student body, comprised of both Bangladeshi students as well as a diverse group of internationals who hail from Muslim countries all over the world. Its halls of residence offer some of the best on-campus housing in the country, and the campus is replete with its very own mosque, playing fields, various recreation centers, two cafeterias and a wonderful lake. The vibrant student life here is one that needs to be experienced first-hand, and is one of IUT’s many strong points.

IUT has advanced enormously in its relatively young existence, and its constant drive for progress and development promises great things for the future. IUT remains steadfast in its mission to provide the best engineering education in the country.
