Postgraduate Degrees/Diploma Offered

The following degrees/diploma are offered by the Department of Civil Engineering, Ahsanullah University of Science and Technology (AUST):

  1. Master of Science in Civil Engineering abbreviated as M.Sc. Engg. (Civil)
  2. Master of Engineering in Civil Engineering abbreviated as M. Engg. (Civil)
  3. Postgraduate Diploma in Civil Engineering Abbriviated as PG. Dip. (CE)

Admission Procedure

Candidates willing to take admission are required to collect the application form from the office of the Registrar of the University. A candidate must fill in the information related to admission (Desired Program, Status of Studentship, etc.), his/her personal information (Name, Father's Name, Mother's Name, Date of Birth, Addresses, Gender, Nationality, etc.) his/her academic information, his/her experience, if any, and names and addresses of two referees.

After filling in all necessary data, the completed application form, duly signed by the applicant, must be submitted with the following supporting documents to the registrar's office to complete the application procedure.

  1. Two attested copies of recent passport size color photographs.
  2. Attested copies of certificates of all public examinations.
  3. Attested copies of certificates/grade sheets/mark sheets of degrees obtained.
  4. Attested copies of testimonials/character certificates from the institutions attended.
  5. The letter of consent from the employer for applicants in employment.

Selection of Candidates

The selection of candidates for admission into a Postgraduate program will be performed by the Department.
