The Continuing Education Center at AIUB was set up in 2007 with the idea of leveraging AIUB’s strengths in the fields of Computer Science and Engineering to provide short range specialized ICT courses to AIUB students as well as students from outside. Management vision, rigid selection of partners, dedication of the employees and enthusiasm of the students for a more relevant form of knowledge helped the department to leapfrog to a level of international eminence within a very short span of time. Over the years, AIUB CEC earned numerous national and international accolades. For the third time in a row, AIUB CEC is the home of Champions of National and SAARC Cisco NetRiders Competition. It now stands as the only Cisco Instructor Training Center (ITC), Academy Support Center (ASC) and QA Academy for the whole Bangladesh and recorded the highest student enrollment in Cisco Networking Academy for last 3 consecutive years in the Asia Pacific Region. Aside from Cisco, success in other programs (Microsoft IT Academy, Oracle Academic Initiative, EC-Council Academia) is quite remarkable as well. It’s the only institution in the region to have signed up Microsoft Dynamics Academic Alliance to equip the business graduates with the technical know-how of the dynamic business world and recently regarded as the first university in Bangladesh to offer Cloud Computing education. The American International University-Bangladesh takes pride in the achievements of the Continuing Education Center.
Looking forward 2012 will be an exciting and dynamic move for CEC. Students will be able to explore both professional and recreational dimensions of learning. We have all the mobile app platforms for development coming in- IPhone, Android and even Windows phone 7! This is great opportunity for our students to step forward from being just regular users to be actual developers of these sophisticated and trendy technologies.
