The object of this programme is to equip students with wide diversity of skills required for urban and regional planning. The admission requirements for BURP programme are as per the specified standard of the university admission. The students are admitted into the BURP programme following the undergraduate admission procedure of the university. At least 160 credit hours and the entire requirement to fulfill this degree must be completed within 4 academic years. Under this programme there is provision of 60 seats for each batch. One advisor is appointed for each student who advises the student for his/her academic programme. There is an Academic Committee of Undergraduate Studies (ACUG) of this department which is responsible for monitoring, evaluation and upgrading the performance of the overall course system. The basic concentration of the undergraduate programme covers the following functional areas: Urban, physical and land use planning, Rural and regional planning, Transportation studies and planning, Environmental, natural resource planning and disaster management, Housing, real estate development and project planning, Urban and social policy development and development planning. Besides, some functional areas of the course curriculum also covers some technical aspects to improve student’s technical skills like communication skills, analytical skills, cartography, surveying, remote sensing and GIS (Geographic Information System) skills.

  • Department of Building Engineering & Construction Management
  • Building Engineering and Construction Management (BECM) is a new Department at Khulna University of Engineering & Technology under the Faculty of Civil Engineering. Bangladesh University Grants Commission (UGC) gave the permission on September 02, 2013 to open this new department. Later on 12 September 2013, the Academic Council of KUET decided to enroll 60 students in this new department at undergraduate level from the academic session 2013-2014. As a developing and emerging country, Bangladesh needs Building Engineers coupled with construction management specialty for the development of physical infrastructures ensuring technical soundness, cost effectiveness and environment-friendly criterion.

    The BECM graduates will play an important role in the social and economic development of the country. There was no scope to study this discipline in Bangladesh since no university has offered such department so far. In Bangladesh, for the first time, this department starts its journey only in KUET from the academic year 2013-2014. BECM coordinates the activities to facilitate the realization of a coherent integrated building solution with the planning, design, construction, operation, renovation, maintenance of buildings as well as with their impacts on the surrounding environment and thus appropriate approach to conduct all relevant activities properly. The practice of Building Engineering and Construction Management (BECM) includes the ability to define, implement and control the design process in order to provide managerial oversight for the efficient and cost effective design of a building project for on-site production. Key competencies for a BECM Engineer include building design philosophies and management.

    The importance of Building Engineering and Construction Management (BECM) for a development country like Bangladesh can hardly be over emphasized. Urbanization has been rapid and largely imbalanced, presently around 30%, which will reach as much as 40% by 2025. A quarter of the population now lives in urban areas, while in 1960 the number was just 5%. Population has been increasing without any potential declination which demanding for housing development has got more importance in recent past. People constantly have been fighting against nature and social ordeals for survival. A well built house protects a family from the onslaughts of nature as well as anti-social elements. It thus increases the productive capacity of the inhabitants of it. On the other hand, due to the geographical locations, the country have to face various environmental effects on structures, such as salinity, corrosion of reinforcement, inadequate soil stability etc. Moreover, due to industrialization, industrial and commercial buildings are increasing rapidly. Hence the sound knowledge regarding building systems have crucial significance.

  • Department of Architecture
  • Department of Mathematics
  • Undergraduate Program: Currently mathematics department is not offering Undergraduate Program like B.Sc. in Mathematics but the mathematics department serves as an allied department to all the undergraduate departments for conducting necessary courses.

    Postgraduate Program: The postgraduate program is a vigorous, rapidly expanding program of advanced study and research in the areas of both pure and applied mathematics. Since 2000 the mathematics department has been offering postgraduate program namely M.Phil. (Masters of Philosophy) and Ph.D. (Doctor of Philosophy). From July 2014, the department is also offering M.Sc. degree. To earn an M.Sc. degree, a student should have to complete a minimum of 36 credit hours of which 18 credit hours of course work and 18 credit hours of thesis work.

    To get M.Phil. degree a student has to complete a minimum of 48 credit hours of which 24 credit hours is assigned to a thesis. The degree requirements of Ph.D. are 60 credit hours of which a maximum of 45 credit hours of thesis works. The areas of specialization in the postgraduate program are : Lattice Theory, Fuzzy Mathematics, Fluid Dynamics, Magnetohydrodynamics, Meteorology, Optimization, Experimental Design, Evolutionary Algorithm, Nonlinear Differential Equation, Numerical Analysis and Operations Research.

  • Department of Chemistry
  • Undergraduate

    The Department covers core chemistry courses: physical, inorganic, organic, environmental, industrial and analytical chemistry to the B.Sc. Engineering (Civil Engineering, Electrical & Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science & Engineering, Electronics & Communication Engineering, Industrial Engineering & Management, Urban & Regional Planning, Leather Engineering, Textile Engineering, Biomedical Engineering and Building Engineering & Construction Management) students, along with the relevant laboratory courses.


    The full time courses of M.Sc., M.Phil. and Ph.D. offer essential aspects of advanced chemical sciences that include physical, organic, inorganic, analytical, environmental & electrochemistry, spectroscopy, and nanochemistry. In addition, exposure to chemistry related to interdisciplinary areas is also covered. Admission to the postgraduate Chemistry is taken in two semesters namely, January Semester and July Semester annually. Tuning the students with knowledge and know how on practical training, project training & research works are the essential components of the course. The evaluation of the course comprises Continuous Internal Assessment and End-Semester Examination. The students after completion of the course will have a good understanding on the applications of chemistry in day-to-day life which will enable them to face the challenges of the current needs.
