Know The University
0.1 Introduction
This is a short introduction about BUET, which stands for Bangladesh Uni-
versity of Engineering and Technology. This is an institution established as
Ahsanullah Engineering College in . Then after liberation war it was named
as BUET . It is a well reputed university for studying engineering . It is well
known for its excellent teaching stuff and facilities all over the country . This
makes it attractive to all the enthusiastic students who wants to be engineer
in their life.
0.1.1 Details
BUET is the oldest institution for the study of Engineering and Architec-
ture in Bangladesh. The history of this institution dates back to the days of
Dhaka Survey School which was established at Nalgola, in Old Dhaka in 1876
to train Surveyors for the then Government of Bengal of British India. As the
years passed, the Survey School became the Ahsanullah School of Engineer-
ing offering three-year diploma courses in Civil, Electrical and Mechanical
Engineering. In recognition of the generous financial contribution from the
then Nawab of Dhaka, it was named after his father Khawja Ahsanullah. It
moved to its present premises in 1912.
Added details In 1947, the School was upgraded to Ahsanullah Engi-
neering College as a Faculty of Engineering under the University of Dhaka,
offering four-year bachelors courses in Civil, Electrical, Mechanical, Chemi-
cal and Metallurgical Engineering. In order to create facilities for postgrad-
uate studies and research, Ahsanullah Engineering College was upgraded to
the status of a University in 1962 and was named East Pakistan Univer-
sity of Engineering and Technology. After the war of Liberation in 1971,
Bangladesh became an independent state and the university was renamed as
the Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology.
0.2 University Today
0.2.1 Infrastructure
The BUET campus is in the heart of Dhaka the capital city of Bangladesh.
It has a compact campus with halls of residence within walking distances of
the academic buildings. The physical expansion of the University over the
last three decades has been impressive with construction of new academic
buildings, auditorium complex, halls of residence, etc.
0.2.2 Departments
About 5500 students are pursuing undergraduate and postgraduate studies
in engineering, architecture, planning and science in this institution. At
present, BUET has sixteen teaching departments under five faculties and
it has three institutes. Every year the intake of undergraduate students
is around 900, while the intake of graduate students in Masters and PhD
programs is around 1000. A total of about five hundred teachers are teaching
in these departments and institutes. There are additional teaching posts like
Dr. Rashid Professor, Professor Emeritus and Supernumerary Professors.
Both Undergraduate and Postgraduate studies and research are now among
the primary functions of the University. Eleven departments under five fac-
ulties offer Bachelor Degrees, while most of the departments and institutes
offer Masters Degrees and some of the departments have Ph.D. programs.
In addition to its own research programs, the university undertakes research
programs sponsored by outside organizations like European Union, UNO,
Commonwealth, UGC, etc. The expertise of the University teachers and the
laboratory facilities of the University are also utilized to solve problems and
to provide up-to-date engineering and technological knowledge to the various
organizations of the country.
0.3 Conclusion
Here ends the formal introduction to buet.

Department of CSE
0.4. IN ACM xiii
0.4 In ACM
The CSE department of BUET has participated in nine consecutive ACM
International Collegiate Progaramming Contests between 1998 and 2005.
Very few universities across the world have comparable participation record.
The best result came in 2000, when the BUET team achieved the 11th po-
sition in the final standings, beating the big names like MIT, Stanford and
other US universities. BUET has also been regional champions or runner-ups
in South Asia in the nine years of its participation.
BUET also hosted regional contests for the Dhaka site several times.
CSE BUET graduates have also achieved success in the organizational
area of ACM ICPC. Shahriar Manzoor of CSE Batch 94 has the honor of
being selected an ACM ICPC World Finals judge for four consecutive years
(2003-2006). Shahriar Manzoor and another graduate of CSE Batch 97 Md.
Kamruzzaman are members of the Elite Problem setters Panel of Valladolid
Online Judge. This site received an award from ACM for its contribution in
the training and popularization of programming contest around the world.
Finally, Prof. M. Kaykobad led the BUET team as its coach to the world
finals seven times in a row, an achievement surpassed by few coaches. He was
awarded the Best Coach award in 2002 ACM ICPC World finals in Honolulu.
0.5 Innovations
April 06, 2013 - BUET team has been the champion in the Microsoft
Imagine Cup 2013 Bangladesh Round
BUET team consisting of 4 students from the Department of CSE and
EEE has won the Microsoft Imagine Cup 2013 Bangladesh Round Grand
Finale, arranged in AIUB on 6th April. They may represent Bangladesh in
the world finals arranged in Russia this year.
Blind Walk
The WHO estimates that in 2002 there were 161 million visually impaired
people in the world (about 2.6
Smart Roadside Indicator
As we stroll down the streets, we see frequent roadside indicator boards
with specific messages on them- like the speed limit, or speedbreaker ahead,
Do not blow horn and so on. But when we are busy driving, we can miss
these signs, and sometimes, the result is disastrous.
Maze Solver Robot
A line maze will be given to solve means an automated car will go through
the maze from source to destination. Maze includes paths which are depicted
in the following figure. The car can take 90 and 180 or ”U” turns in order
to reach the destination.
Automated Toll Collection System
Bangladesh has numerous rivers all across the country and with the
progress of communication we are building monstrous bridges over many
of those rivers. As ours is a developing country most of the time we dont
have enough funds to build a bridge on our own.
Automated water faucet
The main focus of our project was to bring something innovative that will
reduce the misuse of water into our existing water faucets. In this regard,
we pointed out a fact that whenever there is no water in tank but someone
has kept the tape opened carelessly, then when there is water available, it is
simply wasted.
Vehicle Tracking System
In this Project we have designed an embedded system which is used for
tracking and positioning of any vehicle by using Global Positioning System
(GPS) and Global system for mobile communication (GSM).
Space on the Web
Something New on the Horizon This project is a prototype model of a
computer controlled telescope. The telescope can be pointed to any direction
by sending commands from the computer.
