With the motto of Divine and Humanitarian Service and founding aim of ‘social and spiritual development of entire human community’, Khan Bahadur Ahsanullah (R.) founded Dhaka Ahsania Mission more than half century back. A great saint, philosopher, renowned educationist and social reformer, Khan Bahadur Ahsanullah (1873 -1965) dedicated his long chequered life for advancement of the backward community in late nineteenth and early twentieth century. DAM has sponsored several educational institutions which are unique in each individual case. After the success of these institutions DAM is now proudly launching it’s new educational wing Ahsania Institute of Technology and Business (AITB). AITB offers HNC (Higher National Certificate) and HND (Higher National Diploma) better choice to conventional education. It will provide opportunity to study a more intensive programme in a shorter period of time, to suit your individual need.

HND and HNC are BTEC (British Technical Education Certificate) qualifications, awarded by Edexcel which is the largest awarding body in the UK for academic and vocational qualifications. Edexcel is accredited by the Qualifications and Curriculum Authority (QCA), a body of the UK government to offer scholastic and work-related qualifications. Learners in the UK and in 85 countries globally undertake Edexcel’s qualifications for progression into further studies or employment. The HND course is composed of sixteen units, which are spread out over four semesters (terms), typically containing four units in each semester. A student completing ten units will get HNC.These are considered equivalent to the first two years of university course. Many universities will take students who have completed their HND/HNC onto either level 2 (2nd year) or level 3 (3rd year if a 4 year degree) of a degree course. This is a top-up. It also means that after three years (or four if, say, a business placement year is taken) a student could have both the HND/HNC and an Honors degree if studying in an university.

Why to choose HNCs and HNDs instead of traditional Education: HNCs and HNDs are work-related (vocational) higher education qualifications and Internationally recognized by business, industry and professional bodies. They are highly valued by employers both in Bangladesh and overseas, and can also count towards membership of professional bodies and other employer organizations.At present AITB will offer HNCs and HNDs on the following disciplines: Electrical/Electronic Engineering, Telecommunication Engineering, Computing, Business (HRM), Business (Finance). The entry qualification of HNC or HND is HSC / A level.
