The academic program of Gono Bishwabidyalay is now being conducted under four faculties. With the introduction of newer courses in the Academic program of the University the necessity for instituting new faculties has been felt. Accordingly, the new Faculty of Science & Engineering started functioning from December 2013.
The Faculty oversees the academic activities of the following departments:
The syllabus of all the departments include extra-departmental courses like Bengali, English, Ethics and Equity, Environmental Science and Liberation war. The students have to pass in these supporting courses during the prescribed schedule of relevant department.
