CATS-MIST is designed to undertake extensive engineering research by the faculties, pertaining to specific technological needs of the institute itself and providing knowledge-based world class testing and consultancy services in the field of engineering and technology related projects. Based on requirements, advisory and consultancy services are also drawn at times from other reputed institutes/organizations like BUET, Institute of Water Modeling (IWM), Department of Public Health Engineering (DPHE), Bangladesh Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (BCSIR) etc. Nonetheless, all faculty members, lab technicians, equipment and facilities of MIST are dedicated towards providing active services throughout the year to it’s valued clients.
CATS multitudes of activities ensure that infrastructure, lab equipment, testing facilities and services of MIST in general and CATS in particular are better utilized. It provides opportunities for the students and young faculty members of the institute to be updated with the latest trend of technological development of the globe. Competent faculty members find it as an appropriate outfit to enhance their professional knowledge and expertise towards the technological advancement of the country as a whole.
Activities of CATS of few departments have already earned reputation at the national level. Details of the activities of CATS-MIST are being presented in the Department’s webpage.
