Being Rational is the Basic of sciences

Echoing with the global demands, the Department of Basic Sciences and Humanities has been established to ensure high professionally creative education for aspiring students.

Being Humane is the Basic of Humanities

To equip the students with the wisdom and sensibilities to excel in this new century, the department sets its mission to develop the kind of contemporary minds that will enable them to meet the challenges of a world that are becoming more volatile, complex, diverse, and global. It has become more important than ever to know the issues that make us good human beings, knowing the history along with basic skills of communication.

The Department spans various courses in the natural and social sciences as we all know that a university student’s objective is not only to receive technical and scientific education but also to learn socio-interaction, etiquette, exercise tolerance towards the opinions of the others and as a whole promote the intellectual ability beyond the domain of his/her main study. To equip the students with the wisdom and sensibilities to excel in this new century, the department sets its mission to develop the kind of contemporary minds that will enable them to meet the challenges of a world that is becoming more volatile, complex, diverse, and global than ever and also taking its effort to heighten its own and the University’s stature in research and undergraduate education while maintaining its long-standing reputation for excellence in teaching.

An engineering student must not only have a sound basis in engineering but also should be aware of basic sciences, socio-economic issues of the present world. Therefore, courses in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Biology, Sociology, and History are included in the curricula. The courses include PHY-101 (Physics-I), PHY-102 (Physics Sessional), PHY-103 (Physics II), MTH-101 (Mathematics I), MTH-103 (Mathematics II), MTH-201 (Mathematics III), MTH-203 (Mathematics IV), MTH-301 (Probability and Statistics), MTH-173 (Calculus and Solid Geometry), HSS-111(a) (Bangladesh Studies: Society and Culture), HSS-111(b) (Bangladesh Studies: History), HSS-211(a) (Bangladesh Studies: Society and Culture), HSS-211(b) (Bangladesh Studies: History), INS-101(a) (Introduction to Physical Sciences), INS-101(b) (Introduction to Natural Sciences: Biological Sciences), CHEM 111 (Chemistry), CHEM 112 (Chemistry Lab).

Message from the Head of the Department

Welcome to the Department of Basic Sciences and Humanities of University of Asia Pacific. We have come to the end of a millennium and stand at the brink of a new world, which will take shape in the 21st century. An obvious question is where we are as a department and where we want to go? Our goal is to give undergraduate students a high-quality education that includes hands-on experience. Our vision is to support students in achieving excellence in Engineering through quality education. We strive in nation-building activities with a special focus to serve the country as a potential knowledge hub for the dissemination of technological and scientific advancements. As can be seen, we genuinely care about the students and their future.

Over the past seventeen years, the University and the department have undergone many changes, leaving us well-positioned to deliver quality in teaching and research. Notwithstanding current budget limitations, the department is well placed to maintain a significant role in the University. Perhaps the most visible evidence of our vitality can be found in the laboratory facilities. We have included modern experiments in our Physics laboratory. Among these Plank’s constant verification using the photo-electric phenomenon is a prominent one. These changes reflect part of our continuing evolution.

We are committed to creating the most supportive and intellectually stimulating environment for the students. A very friendly and congenial atmosphere exists for fostering a friendly and healthy teacher-student relationship. As head of the department, I see our mission as providing the best education in the understanding of science and arts. Our sense of enthusiasm about what we do, as well as our dedication to lead the department to new heights, are as strong as they have ever been.

Whether you are a prospective student, a former student, a parent, or a curious member of the public, I invite you to visit our web pages and hope that you will have the opportunity to visit our department in our state-of-the-art facilities. If you don't find what you're looking for or if you'd like additional information, please contact me by mail, telephone, fax, or E-mail. I'll do my best to help you.

Prof. Dr. Md. Sultan Mahmud
