It is one of the most popular engineering university of Bangladesh. The university offers four-year bachelor's degrees in Textile Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Industrial and Production Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Chemical and Food Engineering, Materials and Metallurgical Engineering and five-years Bachelor of Architecture. Only the students with Diploma in Engineering can take admission for bachelor's degree in engineering and architecture. It is one of the nine PhD granting research universities of Bangladesh. Every year, around 660 students enroll in undergraduate programs to study engineering and architecture. In the undergraduate admission test, only about top 5% students can get admitted among 12,000 selected candidates. The number of teachers is about 300+.


The university originated in 1980 as the College of Engineering at its temporary campus at Tejgaon, Dhaka under the University of Dhaka offering four years ' Bachelor's degree in Civil, Electrical and Electronic, Mechanical Engineering. After a short time, the College of Engineering was renamed as Dhaka Engineering College (DEC). Then DEC shifted to its present permanent campus Gazipur City in 1983.
