Bachelor's Degree Program In Computer Science And Engineering (CSE)

The ZUMS Computer Science and Engineering (CSE) program is a part of the School of Science and Engineering. ZUMS is a Bangladeshi next generation university that incorporates scientific management principles into all of its academic programs. It emphasizes knowledge creation through research and development. It also maintains close liaison with companies to prepare its graduates for immediate employment. This CSE program is an optimal fit for the ZUMS aim of developing industry-ready and research-focused human resources. These CSE graduates can explore jobs both at home and abroad

The CSE curriculum is a blend of theoretical knowledge and hands-on practical applications such as projects and laboratory activities. Students will continue to learn while working on hands-on projects in the curriculum. The program is designed to deepen the knowledge in the following major categories:

  • Students’ understanding of emerging areas of CSE, and
  • The application and integration of these CSE knowledge areas.

A very important feature of this program is the small class size for more individualized attention and learning paths.

B.Sc. in CSE degree produces graduates, who will be readily employable in software and other companies. Some of the entry level job opportunities are in the following areas:

  • Data Analysis
  • Data Engineering
  • Software Engineering
  • Mobile Application and UI Development

In addition to providing a solid academic background, the coursework can prepare CSE students enrolled in this B.Sc. in CSE program for some globally significant research publications. Students will study and research in areas: Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, IoT, Bioinformatics and Computational Biology, Image Processing, Computer Networking etc., that they are interested in. The university will provide all necessary research facilities to the students.

This program is appropriate for students interested in the latest emerging Computer Science and Engineering fields with a strong academic background. Upon successful completion of this CSE program, students should have the skills and expertise necessary to complete enterprise-scale projects necessary for a successful career.

We consider student advising as a dynamic relationship between a student and an adviser. Under the advising program at ZUMS, students receive comprehensive academic guidance across all four years of the undergraduate period. The advising work includes assistance in identifying research opportunities, civic engagement programs, and other resources to support a student on his/her educational journey.

Career Preparation & Enrichment

All undergraduates are required to participate in a series of Career Preparation & Enrichment workshops to prepare themselves for job applications and necessary skills for future career success. We will help you identify your unique strengths, interests, and goals through workshops, small groups, and one-on-one discussion. The objective is to help you to enhance your employability in national and international organizations.

Your Next Step

Applying to ZUMS is the first step in making your higher educational experience that will define your future success. We carefully review each application with the goal of admitting all deserving students.
