Before the liberation of Bangladesh, the then Government of Pakistan, to meet the increasing demand of professional engineers for the national development, founded Rajshahi Engineering College in 1964 as a faculty of engineering under the University of Rajshahi. It was the second engineering college founded in the then East Pakistan.
Rajshahi Engineering College was commonly known as REC begin its journey with only three departments: Electrical & Electronic Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Civil Engineering offering bachelor's degree programs only. It received its first class of 120 students in the academic session of 1964/65 and the second class of like number in the academic session of 1965/66. The teaching faculty consisted of nineteen (19) faculty members at that time.
After the liberation of Bangladesh (1971), the administration of the college was controlled by the Ministry of Education of Bangladesh and academic curriculum was controlled by University of Rajshahi. However, the infrastructural development and maintenance were taken care of by the Public Works Department of Government of Bangladesh. To remove these kinds of earlier problems several committees and commissions were formed since 1973. On the recommendation of these committees and commissions, in 1986, Rajshahi Engineering College was converted to an institute and was named Bangladesh Institute of Technology (BIT), Rajshahi to enhance the technical education.
In September 2003, the institute was improved to a university and was named as Rajshahi University of Engineering and Technology (RUET) to increase the technical education and research. From that time, Rajshahi University of Engineering & Technology is financed by the Government through the University Grants Commission (UGC) of Bangladesh. The university is a self-governing statutory organization of the Government of Bangladesh functioning within the "Rajshahi University of Engineering & Technology: Act 2003".
