Current Wireless at CU: Whether you’re a student, faculty, staff or a guest to our campus you have the ability to connect to the wireless network. Your computer or mobile device requires 802.11 wireless networking capability. If you are unsure of your the wireless device capabilities, review the device specification or contact ICT Technical Support.

Wired Networking on Campus: Wired access to the CU network and systems, and high speed Internet is provided in most areas of the campus. Access is available in employee offices, many conference rooms and classrooms. There are open ports in a few campus buildings, however you will need to bring your own Ethernet cord to access the wired network through these ports. Like the wireless network, any activity on the wired network is subject to the Acceptable Use Policy.

Email, Messaging and Web:

You must be a current member of the University of Chittagong faculty/staff in an eligible department to have an email account administered and/or provided by ICT Cell.

Website Hosting:

ICT Cell offers hosting for departmental websites under Chittagong University Domain. Please contact the IT Service Desk for more information.



ICT Courses

Nowadays the role of Information and Communication Technology (ICT), in the education sector plays an important role, especially in the process of empowering the technology into the educational activities. Education sector can be the most effective sector to anticipate and eliminate the negative impact of ICT. Technology in another side can be the most effective way to increase the student’s knowledge.

The use of ICT in education adds value to teaching and learning, by enhancing the effectiveness of learning. It added a dimension to learning that was not previously available. After the inception of ICT in schools, students found learning in a technology enhanced environment more stimulating and engaging than in a traditional classroom environment.

Our proposed ICT Courses: (Upon Approval)

  1. Certificate Course in Computer Application (CCA)
  2. Certificate Course in Web Design and Development (CWD)
  3. Certificate Course in Computer Hardware and Maintenance (CHM)
  4. Certificate Course in Network Administration (CNA)
  5. Certificate Course in Freelancing(Online Market Place) and Entrepreneurship (CFE)

     *** Any other seasonable courses in future that may be offered by  the Bangladesh Computer Council (BCC) under the ICT ministry on the approval of the Syndicate of the CU.



Automation

Automation is transforming universities too. With today’s mainstream technology architectures where software applications access and update databases in real time. Through orchestration, applications send packets of information to each other as events happen and in response to triggers. They communicate seamlessly and continuously through tools such as web services, JSON feeds, and messaging/integration platforms. Business processes are designed to run themselves; they only send out alerts when problems or anomalies occur. Workflow, digital imaging, and analytics provide further enhancements.

The real opportunities are in the automation of academic processes. At our university, when an admissions system admits a student, the system automatically creates the “WebID” and alerts the student so she can begin self-service instantly.

From this perspective, automation is not something to be feared but rather a powerful tool. Automation helps the institution “run well” and minimizes administrative overhead, allowing resources to be directed toward the core mission.

Universities own massive data sets that have yet to be fully mined for use in improving services. Students expect immediate access to information and services, requiring new technologies such as in-memory databases and state-of-the-art mobile apps. Just as we are seeing artificial intelligence infiltrate other industries such as Amazon’s use of sophisticated algorithms to predict our interests,5 there will be applications in higher education.

Right Now we are going to automate below services within couple of months
