Course Offerings:

All courses at BUBT follow a logical sequence. At the very outset, students are encouraged to take foundation courses. Next comes the core courses. Here the students are exposed to the various aspects of their discipline from the basics to the manageable details. Having completed the core courses, students meet the requirements for enrolling into the concentration or major courses which prepare the students for career in the chosen area of specialization. Finally, a student has to complete the required Internship assignment to gain practical work experience.

Course Load:

Twelve credits without laboratory credits, if any, (that is, 4 courses per semester) are the normal course load according to BUBT standard. However, a student can enroll for more or a smaller number of courses with necessary permission.

Course Sequence:

A student must pass all prerequisite courses (foundation, support and core courses) in order to register into higher-level (major/concentration) courses required for the preferred degree. All course sequences must be maintained including English Language requirements for the undergraduate programs. A student must fulfill English Language requirements by the fourth semester after admission.

Class Attendance:

A student must attend at least 70% classes in all the courses. Other than LLB two year and LLM programs, 5% marks in each course is allocated for attendance and this score will vary from 1 to 5 according to his/her percentage of presence as noted below.

However, if any student wishes to take this privilege, he/she has to submit an application through proper channel at least within 2 weeks after publication of result of a particular semester.
