The authorities of the universities disagree over the admission centre and committee

Four engineering and technology universities of the country have yet to make a final decision over taking admission tests in cluster systems in the 2020-2021 academic year.

The four universities are Bangladesh University of Engineering And Technology (Buet), Rajshahi University of Engineering and Technology (Ruet), Chittagong University of Engineering and Technology (Cuet), and Khulna University of Engineering & Technology (Kuet).

The University Grants Commission (UGC) held a meeting with the vice-chancellors (VCs) and pro vice-chancellors of the four universities in this regard on Wednesday.

At the meeting, the university authorities said everyone, including the universities’ academic council, agreed in principle to take the admission test in a cluster system.

However, they disagree on the forming of the admission test committee and the centre.

Professor Md Alamgir, a member of the UGC's public university management department, said Buet academic council submitted a proposal to conduct the admission test. The other three universities would soon send their opinions on Buet's proposal. 

A decision will be taken based on that, Prof Alamgir said.

UGC Chairman Prof Kazi Shahidullah presided over the virtual meeting while Buet Pro VC Prof Abdul Jabbar Khan, Ruet VC Prof Md Rafiqul Islam Sheikh, Cuet VC Prof Md Rafiqul Alam, Kuet VC Dr Quazi Sazzad Hossain were also present.

Director of the public university management department of UGC, Md Kamal Hossain and three Buet professors also joined the meeting.

Earlier, the UGC decided to use a cluster admission test system for the 2020-2021 academic year.
