Shahjalal University of Science and Technology (SUST) is the first University of its type in the country. It is the first university to adopt 4.00 GPA system in Bangladesh and one of the sixteen universities of the country conducting successfully both undergraduate (Bachelor) and graduate (MS, M.

Most of the undergraduate programs offered by the University are undergoing self-assessment process under the auspices of Institutional Quality Assurance Cell at the Institution.
