There are 15 academic departments under 5 faculties emphasizing teaching and research of engineering, technology, architecture, and planning.
To meet the growing demand of professional engineers for the national development, the National Economic Council of the Government of Pakistan decided to found The Engineering College, Chittagong on August 28, 1962. The Engineering College started functioning on December 28, 1968, by admitting 120 students in its first academic session under the faculty of Engineering, University of Chittagong (CU). On 1 July 1986, through a Government Ordinance (No. XXI, 1986) the college was converted into a self-explanatory institution called Bangladesh Institute of Technology (BIT), Chittagong. There were three other similar BITs in Rajshahi, Khulna, and Dhaka. The President of Bangladesh was the visitor of these institutes. A Board of Governors headed by a Chairman employed by the President was the policy-making and administrative authority which had its head office at Tejgaon, Dhaka.
Though the Bangladesh Institute of Technology, was said to be an autonomous institution there were different complexity in the administration, control, admission, budget, development and other processes of the institution. On September 1, 2003, it was a historic moment when the BIT, Chittagong was converted into a fully autonomous public university & named Chittagong University of Engineering and Technology or CUET for short, after the teachers and students of BIT, Chittagong started a huge movement demanding university status for all four BITs. The President of Bangladesh is the Chancellor of the University. BIT, Khulna; BIT, Rajshahi and BIT, Dhaka have been converted to Khulna University of Engineering and Technology (KUET), Rajshahi University of Engineering and Technology (RUET), and Dhaka University of Engineering and Technology (DUET) respectively.
Now the university is a fully self-explanatory statutory organization of the Government of Bangladesh which awards degrees itself to the graduates. There are different statutory bodies like Syndicate, Academic Council, Finance Committee, Planning, and Development Committee, Academic Committees, etc. for policy and decision-making on aspects of the university under the framework of the Act.
