Industrial Advisory Panel

Department of Civil Engineering

Chittagong University of Engineering & Technology




Better interaction between Engineering University and industry is the need of the hour. This will have great bearing on the Engineering Curriculum, exposure of industrial atmosphere to engineering students and subsequent placement of young graduating engineers in industries across the country. With the advent of globalization and opening up of Bangladesh economy to outside world, competitions among industries have become stiff. To solve industrial engineering problems they look up now to engineering Institutions. Similarly, there is an urgent need to prepare engineering students for jobs in multinational companies, by exposing them to newer technologies and engineering methodologies. These objectives can only be achieved well by bridging the gap between industry and the academic departments.

Industry Advisory Panel (IAP) is an integral link in supporting and strengthening the Department’s relationships with key industries, fostering increased collaborative research, enhancing student experiential learning opportunities and increasing industry engagement. The IAPwill be comprised of a group of experienced industry professionals who are all committed to the advancement of our students, faculty and the Department.



The Industry Advisory Panel (IAP) will provide assistance and guidance to the Department of Civil Engineering to support the Department’s collaborative research activities with industry and also enhance opportunities for experiential learning for the Department’s undergraduate and graduate students through internship, design projects and industrial visits.
