Item wise responses to the comments, recommendations and suggestions made by the Reviewer, in the curriculum of Bachelor’s Program in Electrical and Electronic Engineering are given below:

  • It is a requirement of the University that a student must pass all the prescribed courses individually for the degree. The present rule of the University for awarding the degree for all the departments including engineering disciplines is to complete the credits requirement as well as to obtain a minimum CGPA of 2.00. In this context, the degree requirement for the proposed Bachelor’s Program in Electrical and Electronic Engineering has been set as follows:

“To obtain B. Sc. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering, students will have to complete 154 credits with a minimum CGPA of 2.00.”

  • The title of EEE 418 VHDL in Logic Synthesis has not been changed as EEE 418 VHDL Modeling and Logic Synthesis following the suggestion of the Reviewer. Since VHDL is a hardware description language for describing the logic circuits and to synthesis smaller logic circuits into bigger ones. It is not used for modeling any systems. The contents of the proposed syllabus and the Reviewer’s suggested syllabus are almost same. Besides, in this course we will use FPGA trainer kit. So, we do not need ‘Microcontroller’ for this course. This is a different topic. So, we did not include this in this course. However, we feel that ‘Test bench’ is an important part of this course. So, we kept it.

  • The course contents of EEE 461 Telecommunication Engineering have been changed following the suggestion of the Reviewer.
  • The course contents and title of EEE 459 Mobile Cellular Communication have been changed as EEE 459 Cellular Mobile Communication following the suggestion of the Reviewer.
  • The course contents and title of EEE 483 Power System Protection and Control have been changed as EEE 483 Power System Protection following the suggestion of the Reviewer. Following the Reviewer’s suggestion, we have added “MCB, MCCB, ACB for protection of low tension circuits and their selection criteria” and “Principles of Power System monitoring and operation using SCADA”.
  • The ‘Mathematics’ courses can not be re-organized as suggested by the Reviewer. Because, the Daffodil International University conduct these courses for other departments. However, the overall contents are same for all ‘Mathematics’ courses. We feel that ‘Partial Differential Equation’ is an important part of Mathematics and it is required for the students of the EEE department also. So, we have kept this part in our proposed syllabus.
  • EEE 221 Numerical Analysis course has been changed following the suggestion of the Reviewer.
  • We have changed the wordings of EEE 499 Thesis/ Project following the Reviewer’s suggestion. The passing grade of this course has been set as B- (B minus) following the suggestion of the Reviewer.
  • The details of the existing laboratory facilities have been added with this curriculum.

2.0 The following laboratories have been set up following the suggestion of the Reviewer:
            (i) Electrical Circuits I and II Laboratories
            (ii) Analog Electronics Laboratory
            (iii) Digital Electronics Laboratory
            (iv) Microprocessor and Interfacing Laboratory

Upgradation and further improvement of these laboratories are also going on.

3.0 List of Laboratory facilities and staffs have been added.

4.0 We provide two teachers per laboratory classes. The class size is maximum of 20 students.

5.0 The degree requirement for the proposed Bachelor’s Program in Electrical and Electronic Engineering of Daffodil International University has been set as follows:“To obtain B. Sc. in Electrical and Electronic Engineering degree, students will have to complete 154 credits with a minimum CGPA of 2.00.”

6.0 Admission and residency requirements have been set as follows:“The requirements for admission to Bachelor’s program are as follows:

  • Students having minimum 2.5 GPA or second division both in SSC and HSC from Science background or its equivalent background. Appeared students are not admitted.
  • A maximum of 50 percent credits are transferable from other universities. The residency requirement is 50 % of the total credits for the degree.
  • For ‘O’ level and ‘A’ level systems an applicant must have completed 6 papers in ‘O’ level and 6 papers in ‘A’ level. In the ‘A’ level the student must have completed at least 2 papers of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. Minimum average GPA of both levels should be ‘C’ separately. An applicant must submit his results during the application. Appeared students are not admitted.

7.0 The guidelines mentioned by the Reviewer for building up Laboratories will be followed.

8.0 Summary of the courses and semester-wise list of courses has been shown. Course codes have been changed accordingly.

Few more changes that have been done for the Bachelor’s Program in Electrical and Electronic Engineering are included below:

  • The name of the Degree offering Department will be “Electrical and Electronic Engineering”.
  • The duration of the program has been set as follows:

“Duration of the program is four years (twelve semesters), if a student enrolls as a full time student. But a student may also enroll as a part time student and take less number of courses.”

  • EEE 111 Computer Programming and EEE 112 Computer Programming Laboratory courses have been shifted to level 1, term 2 and renamed as CSE 121 Structured Programming Language and CSE 122 Structured Programming Language Laboratory respectively. Because, many students fall in problem in the level 1, term 1 to grasp this course as we have seen it from our experience.
