The CSE program of the School of Computer Science at Royal University of Dhaka (RUD) is dedicated to develop a new generation of IT leaders and entrepreneurs. This new generation of IT leaders and entrepreneurs would not only develop an in depth understanding of various aspects of information technology, they would also know how to make a balance between business and the wider world. To experience the RUD CSE is to go inside the issues that matter—and to reach inside oneself for the strength, skills, and confidence you will need to develop to face the real corporate environment. In every class, presentation, event and activity we would not only ask you study leadership, but also would groom you to become a competent IT leader. The RUD CSE program’s design follows the guidelines of the American Assembly of Collegiate School of Computer Science (AACSB). Professors and IT Professionals with North American or equivalent university degrees with long experience teach in the CSE program.
Our program is designed to train the CSE students to outperform others in their corporate environment and address the burning questions. “What difference will it make in my career when I graduate?”
