Ahsanullah University of Science and Technology (Bengali: আহসানউল্লাহ্ বিজ্ঞান ও প্রযুক্তি বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়) (AUST) is a Private Technical University located in Dhaka, Bangladesh. It is one of the leading Private Universities in Bangladesh. The University was founded by the Dhaka Ahsania Mission in 1995. Dhaka Ahsania Mission is a non-profit voluntary organization in Bangladesh. The Mission was established in 1958 by Khan Bahadur Ahsanullah.

It maintains close collaboration with the International Association of Universities (IAU), University Grants Commission (UGC), Bangladesh and many other National and International Education Institutions and Professional bodies.

The university has free wifi but the speed is only 3 Mbps for all the students which is very much lower compared to the necessity. It is the only Private Engineering University with accreditation for all Departments from Institute of Engineers, Bangladesh(IEB).[1]
