The University of Dhaka has a colourful past, glorious present and vibrant future. Since its journey on the first of July 1921, is has been contributing in spreading higher education widely as well as in nation building activities extraordinarily. Accordingly, its Engineering Section has an extraordinary role in building physical infrastructure of the University of Dhaka. As a result, the Engineering Section of the University of Dhaka started its functioning at the time of establishment of this University; and accordingly, an Engineering Service Rule was also framed by the Syndicate. At first, Mr. Monomohan Babu was the Head of the Engineering Section. His designation was then Steward. He was appointed in this post after the establishment of this section on 31.3.1948. At the beginning, the Office of the Engineering Section was in the Jagannath Hall, South House. At that time, the number of workers of this section was about 100. For the working facilities, the Office of the Engineering Section was transferred from Jahannath Hall to the Registrar building in the year 1968. Day by day, the volume of works increased in this section. Now the total staff position of this section is about 300. The head of this section is now Chief Engineer. The post of Chief Engineer was created in 1970. Mr. Mostafizur Rahman was the first Chief Engineer of this section of University of Dhaka. He acted as the Chier Engineer from 08.12.1970 to 06.05.1973. Afterwards, from time to time Engineers from the P.W.D. and the R. & H. was Mr. Amanullah Al-Faruq. Then the Syndicate on 7.3.2002 took the decision not to continue deputation. The post of the Chief Engineer was advertised in the national dailies. Mr. Ameer Huasain was appointed as a regular Chief Engineer by the Syndicate on recommendation of the Selection Committee constituted by the Authorities of University.
