Faculty of Science and Engineering
PCIU has a distinguished tradition in science and engineering, and was one of the best universities to establish engineering, computer science & engineering, electric & electronics engineering, civil engineering and textile engineering, fashion design and technology,natural science departments. The Faculty today provides research and teaching excellence across engineering, science and mathematics in five academic Schools ( Electric & Electronic Engineering and Computer Science & Engineering, Civil Engineering and Textile engineering; See the undergraduate and postgraduate sections for programme details.)
Computer Science is a young and incentive discipline. As undergraduate students move through they are exposed to a wide range of subject matter within the discipline. Our degree courses give students a deeper understanding of the many diverse and interesting areas of computer science, preparing them for an industry or research oriented career path.
The degree courses offered by the department aim to
- Provide fundamental software skills and professional IT values;
- Equip the graduate to develop software-based solutions to problems in a variety of contexts;
- Have curricula that conform to the highest international standards;
- Give a grounding in all the core areas of computer science;
- Emphasis the most state-of-the-art ways of engineering software to be used in the IT industry.
Discipline has included courses in the algorithmic foundations of computer science, introductory and advanced programming, net-centric computing, current systems, and operating systems, theoretical aspects of computer science, software engineering, distributed systems, artificial intelligence and computer and information security. Our Discipline has a strong practical laboratory component and students are expected to deliver a high standard of practical work.
We take pride in the many focused areas of research in which faculty and students are engaged, including Computational Intelligence, Information and Computer Security, Software Engineering and Software Architecture, Formal Methods and Computer Science.
The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering (EEE) was established at Port City International University in 2012 when it started its activities and offers 4 Years graduation program leading to the degree of B.Sc. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Electrical and Electronic Engineering is a field of engineering that generally comprises of a number of subfields including electrical power engineering, electromagnetism, electronics, digital systems, telecommunications, electrical machinery and drive systems, control systems, RF engineering, signal processing, instrumentation, and microelectronics which are covered with the excellence of the faculty members of this department. The department is committed to the study and analysis of fundamental as well as applied problems. Teachers and students of the department work in solving problems in the fields of conventional and renewable energy generation, transmission and utilization, power system planning, reliability, operation, control and protection, machine and drives design, microwave circuitry, micro-strip antenna design, remote sensing, design and synthesis of VLSI circuits, semiconductor device design and characterization, digital signals and image processing and bio-medical signal conditioning and identification of processed signals etc. The curriculum has been designed in such a way that helps to develop the ability of students’ to cope with our rapidly changing society as well as their morality to contribute their learning to humankind.
Civil Engineering being the second-oldest engineering discipline, is concerned with the planning, design, construction and management of the physical and naturally built environment. In fact our department in Port City International University deals with the continuation and technical applications of one of the most ancient human skills; that of building and shaping the world around us. Our vision here is to groom our students to their fullest potential and hence to become a school of excellence that brings out civil engineers with high technical competencies who can make differences in this era of achieving sustainability in every sphere of life.
Our people are our core strength. Currently the department has 17 full-time faculty members (4 on study leave) along with 7 adjunct faculty members from CUET. With a view to providing best possible laboratory experiences, the department has established five (5) well-equipped laboratories covering five major sub-divisions of Civil Engineering viz. Structural Engineering, Environmental Engineering, Transportation Engineering, Geotechnical Engineering and Water Resources Engineering with an additional plan of offering material testing and consultancy services in not so distant future.
Apart from the academic programs, we organize comprehensive training on computer aided design, project management etc. and actively participate in activities of national and international engineering professional bodies. Besides the department regularly arranges field visits, study tours, seminars, and programs on extracurricular activities and has already signed a MOU with CUET for effective collaboration.
WELCOME TO TEXTILE ENGINEERING DEPARTMENT
Bangladesh is a developing country and textile is the largest industrial sector of Bangladesh. We earned about 85% of our foreign currency from this sector. Over the last couple of decades the face of textiles has changed dramatically all over the world. The department provides an outstanding opportunity to students to get quality education in Textile Engineering.
It started its academic activities from January 2013. This department will help to produce qualified engineers with appropriate knowledge and skills for development of textile sector through expansion of facilities for modern textile education and research in the country. This department will help a lot to generate sufficient number of textile engineers in the country with a view to meet the ever increasing demand due to globalization and technological development, to provide up to date technological knowledge to various organization within and outside the country, to create opportunity for higher education and research in the field of textile, to develop professional manpower in the field of spinning, weaving, knitting, dyeing, finishing and garments. The relationship of the department with the local industries is strengthened through various programs such as seminars, workshop, conferences and different events.
Department of Fashion Design gives wide range of career opportunities for the students, having your own establishment, working for top labels, fashion designers, garment export houses, textile mills, apparel merchandisers, also huge work scope in visual merchandising, public relations and marketing, styling and even being a lecturer for Fashion Institutes. One of PCIU’s major strengths is the brand itself, where we have top fashion brands, textile industry, fashion designers hiring from our pool of talent.
Department of Natural Science (NSC) serves the knowledge of natural philosophy that dominating the development of the physical universe. NS is the framework within which Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Statistics, and History are taught and offers courses on need basis of Arts, Business, and Science & Engineering Faculties. Currently department offers courses like Mathematics, Business Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Statistics, and History of Bangladesh & Bangladesh Studies. The breadth of the course reflects the blurring of boundaries between the different sciences and encourages students to do great things with new ideas in the next couple of academic years. Fifteen faculty members with two adjunct faculties are working with excellent academic and research background under this department. ‘Enlighten the Nation with the Knowledge of Science’ being the motto of this department, faculties always work in a team with the highest professionalism making it easier to achieve the goal set each year. NS with dynamic leadership often organizes student-oriented creative programs, seminars, & various contests encouraging the students to overcome the fear of science over the year.
