Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Bengali: বাংলাদেশ প্রকৌশল বিশ্ববিদ্যালয়, [baŋlad̪eʃ prokowʃɔl biʃʃobid̪d̪alɔe̯]), commonly known as BUET (pronounced: [bue̯eʈ]; Bengali: বুয়েট), is a renowned public university in Bangladesh, which focuses on the study of engineering and architecture.
Every year, around 1030 students get accepted to their undergraduate programs to study engineering, architecture, and urban planning. Of the 9,000 candidates selected to write the undergraduate admission test from an initial application pool of over 10,000 applicants, only about the top 10% are admitted. Around 1000 graduate students are accepted into their Masters and PhD programmes on an annual basis. The total number of teachers is around 500. With the construction of new academic buildings, an auditorium complex, and halls of residence, the university has continued to expand over the last three decades. BUET has been ranked 159th among the Asian universities in the 2016 edition of QS World University Rankings.

Dacca Survey School was established in 1876 as a survey school at Nalgola, west of the current Sir Salimullah Medical College campus, in Old Dhaka by the then Government of Bengal under British Raj. It offered a survey course of two years to train land surveyors, at the end of which students competed at the Sub-Overseer's examination. According to a report on public instruction in Bengal, on 31 March 1903, Dacca Survey School had 117 students of which 103 were Hindus and 14 were Muslims. In 1908, the school started to offer diploma degrees. Khwaja Ahsanullah, a philanthropist and member of the Dhaka Nawab Family, endowed donations for developing the survey school. After his death in 1901, his son, the then Nawab of Dhaka, Khwaja Salimullah released 112,000 rupees grant in 1902 in accordance. As an acknowledgement of this contribution, the school was renamed to Ahsanullah School of Engineering.
The school offered three-year long diploma courses in Civil engineering, Electrical engineering and Mechanical engineering. In 1912, the university was moved to its present premises. A. K. Fazlul Huq, the then Prime Minister of Bengal, appointed Hakim Ali as the principal of the school in 1938. After the partition of India in 1947, the school was upgraded to Ahsanullah Engineering College, as a Faculty of Engineering under the University of Dhaka, offering four-year bachelor's course in Civil, Electrical, Mechanical, Chemical and Metallurgical engineering. In 1948, the Government of East Pakistan granted recognition to the engineering college. Ali became the first principal of the college. In 1951, TH Mathewman was appointed the next principal. M. A. Rashid succeeded him in 1954 as the first Bengali principal of the college and held the post until 1960. In 1956, a new course curriculum and the semester system were introduced at the college.
On 1 June 1962, in order to create facilities for postgraduate studies and research, the college was upgraded to East Pakistan University of Engineering and Technology (EPUET), becoming the fourth university of the then East Pakistan. Rashid was appointed the first vice-chancellor of the university. A partnership with the Agricultural and Mechanical College of Texas (renamed Texas A&M University) was forged, and professors from A&M came to teach and formulate the curriculum. During this period, EPUET offered courses in Mechanical, Electrical, Civil, Metallurgical, and Chemical Engineering, and Architecture.
Several other departments offer graduate and undergraduate courses in different subjects: Water resources engineering, Urban and regional planning, Naval architecture and marine engineering, Industrial and production engineering, Petroleum and mineral resources engineering, Computer science and engineering, Glass and ceramic engineering, and Biomedical engineering. These courses were all added to the university at different times.
In 2007, BUET celebrated 60 years (1947–2007) of engineering education in Bangladesh by arranging a 6 month long series of programs and events.
