Any student failing and requiring more than 4 years for graduation will have to pay additional sum of money for additional year(s) as per rule as decided for each extra year.

(ii) Higher Diploma Programmes

Higher Diploma in Engineering (HDE) programme is of three year duration. On successful completion of three years of study they will be awarded Higher Diploma in Mechanical Engineering or Electrical & Electronic Engineering or Computer Science and Engineering. There are specializations in Automotive for Higher Diploma in Mechanical Engineering, Power System Technology for Higher Diploma in Electrical and Electronic Engineering and Web Technology for Higher Diploma in Computer Science and Engineering.

The HDE graduates may continue to complete the respective remaining courses of B.Sc. Engineering programmes on payment of a sum of US$ 6500 to be deposited to IUT in the form of Demand Draft/Pay Order favouring Islamic University of Technology before registration in the B.Sc. Engineering Programme.

Minimum Entry Requirements

Higher/Upper Secondary School Certificate (science background) from a Board / University or its equivalent. The candidates are required to have good grades (minimum grade 'B' or equivalent) in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and English. The year of passing should be the current year or one year earlier.

(iii)Technical Education
The University will offer the following undergraduate Programmes in the field of Technical Education :
