We live at a time of technological change that is creating an impact on people's life. Every year, the Faculty of Science and Technology (FST) works towards introducing the students to new technologies advances and innovations. The university has always strived to continuously evolve by incorporating practical applications and perspectives into its curriculum as well as implementing creative initiatives for its future leaders.


As a part of that very notion, the AIUB Computer Club (ACC), a proactive departmental student organization of FST, organized their annual flagship event, the “AIUB Cyber Gaming Fest 2019”, a 4-day long cyber gaming competition for young talented gamers. The AIUB Cyber Gaming Fest 2019, powered by GIGABYTE" brought together over 600 students from more than 130 reputed schools and colleges from across the country from the 5th - 8th of December 2019. The hundreds of eager players registered to participate in various strategic, action, and multiplayer games like NFS Most Wanted, FIFA 2019, Counter-Strike Global Offensive, DOTA 2, PUBG Mobile, and Beat Saber, a Virtual Reality (VR) game, in partnership with Club G1 IT and AORUS.
The campus was overwhelmed by a crowd of enthusiastic participants at the Opening Ceremony for the event on the 5th of December 2019, which was inaugurated by the Vice-Chancellor, Dr. Carmen Z. Lamagna, and the Founding Member & Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Ms. Nadia Anwar, together. The Associate Dean-In-Charge and an Associate Professor in FST, Mr. Mashiour Rahman, the Director of the Office of Student Affairs (OSA) and an Associate Professor in FST, Mr. Manzur H. Khan, along with several other faculty members and administrative officers were also present in the program


Students played against one another through different elimination rounds, which eventually led to the final that was streamed online and projected on screen in the campus premise, where the crowd cheered them on, every step of the way. After 4-days of the intensive tournament, winners emerged victorious in their respective games. The results of the AIUB Cyber Gaming Fest 2019 are as follows -
