Important for higher education and TVET
5Job placement after CSE/IIT graduation was 77.1% with large
variations across universities.
AUST = Ahsanullah University of Science and Technology, BRACU = BRAC University, BUET = Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology, DIU = Daffodil International
University, DU = Dhaka University, EWU= East West University, JU= Jahangirnagar University, JUST = Jashore University of Science and Technology, IUT = Islamic University of
Technology.
Note: Total number of respondents for each university are as follows: AUST (n=142), BRACU (n=140), BUET (n=203), DIU (n=140), DU (n=123), EWU (n=111), JU (n=121), JUST

Note: Employment rate after graduation was computed by the number of graduates placed in jobs divided by the total number of graduates minus voluntary unemployed (i.e.
unemployed graduates that did not look for a job). Total number of respondents for each university are as follows: AUST (n=142), BRACU (n=140), BUET (n=203), DIU (n=140), DU
(n=123), EWU (n=111), JU (n=121), JUST (n=144), IUT (n=92).

Investing in CSE/IIT higher education in Bangladesh could be
instrumental in developing the IT/ITES ecosystem1
Employability of CSE/IIT graduates varies considerably across
gender, job search period, university, and location2
Internship, career guidance, practical training and soft skills
enhancement have scope for improvements3
Key Findings
30
Access to CSE/IIT programs, particularly for women, needs to
be expanded1
Quality and relevance of CSE/IIT can be enhanced through
more practice, better career guidance and internship2
Universities can strengthen support for start-ups to increase
the number of successful high-tech entrepreneurs3
