The title of the programme is Pre-Diploma in Computer Engineering.


The aim of the programme is to produce competent human resources in the field of Computer Engineering or ICT Industries who can work in rapid growing Computer Applications, Computer Programming and Designing, Networking as well as can provide service in communication fields.


After completing this curricular program, the students will be able to:

  • Help to uplift the awareness about the ICT
  • Work in the fast growing field of ICT industries, government institutions as well as international and non-governmental organisations
  • Process the related data
  • Work in Computer Programming and Networking
  • Develop small programs on graphic design and web development and Create self-employment opportunity to reduce the unemployment problems which helps to alleviate the poverty in the country.

Programme Description:

This programme is based on the job required to be performed by the Junior Computer Technicians in computer Designing, Programming, Networking and Communication service sectors. It is related to computer application and communication system installation and maintenance. Therefore, this curriculum is designed to provide knowledge and skills focusing on Computer Engineering related to the occupation. The curricular program consists of one year in house course and six months on the Job Training.

Similarly, the On-the-Job Training (OJT) for 6 months insists on the application of learned skills and knowledge in formal setting as well as the provision of OJT is also included to establish a linkage with employers and provides hands on work experience to students and promotes employability of graduates. Moreover, OJT takes place immediately after completing yearly final examination.

Course Duration:

This course will be completed within 18 months (40 hrs./week X 39 weeks = 1560 hrs.) class plus 6 months (40 hrs./week X 24 weeks = 960 hrs.) on the job training (OJT).
