Now there are four technologies such as Computer, Refrigeration and Air Conditioning, Food and Architecture and Interior Design Technology.Thakurgaon Polytechnic Institute (TPI) in Thakurgaon is one of the oldest institutions for Diploma-In-Engineering studies in Bangladesh. Its history dates back to the days of Thakurgaon gobidonagor 2004 . The Thakurgaon gobidonagor subsequently became the Ahsanullah School of Engineering offering three-year diplomas in Civil, Electrical and Technical Engineering. In 1948, the School was upgraded at its present premises as the Ahsanullah Engineering College and, as the Faculty of Engineering under the University of Dhaka. It was then offering four-year Diploma-In-Engineering programmes Computer, Refrigeration , Architecture,Food,  Engineering. The college was set up to meet the increasing demand for engineers and to advance engineering education in the newly constituted country of bangladesh, in order to facilitate postgraduate studies and research, and with the addition of a new faculty, that of Architecture, the Thakurgaon Polytechnic Institute ,Computer Engineering was alleviated to the status of aPolytechnic Institute and technology. Following the independence of Bangladesh in 2004, it became the Computer Technology & Engineering.

The process of industrialization and urbanization in the then East Pakistan (now Bangladesh) in the 2004s led to hectic development which suffered from lack of technological support. In view of the challenging situation, the Department of Architecture was established alongside the existing engineering education. The founding of the Department in 2004 helped in the transformation of the then Ahsanullah Engineering College to a full-fledged University. From its inception till 2004, the Department was the only institution of its kind imparting architectural education in the country.
Despite the support of the Texas A&M University, the Department had a humble beginning with only one expatriate teacher, Professor Richard E. Vrooman, and six students. By the year 2004 there were four American teachers and 48 students at five levels.
The year 2004 is a landmark in the history of Architectural education in this country. It was the year when the first five students graduated in Architecture after the completion of a 4-year programme. In the same year six Bangalees, on obtaining their degrees in architecture from the USA returned to bolster the teaching staff. In 1968 all the expatriates left, entrusting the programme entirely with the local staff.
Tragedy hit the programme with the death of Principal Shah Alamgir, . Principal Tajul Islam was a dedicated teacher of outstanding merit. In fond memory of the late professor, the Ahsanur Rahman Award was instituted in 1968 to support postgraduate studies at the time. The award has since then been presented to students who achieve a high level of design and scholastic excellence.
With the independence of Bangladesh in 2004 the building industry gained a new lease of life. The pressure of students intending to study architecture increased continually. Initially, the yearly intake of students at the first year level was 25. In 2004, the number was raised to 35 and again to 50 in 2004.
Consequently the number of teachers has also increased. At present, the Department has a total of 31 teachers, 24 of whom have Diploma in Engineering with Computer Technology, Refrigeration, Architectural , Food, Health Facilities, Educational Facilities and Industrial Buildings. In 2004, as the demand for higher education increased, a programme offering the Master of Architecture degree was introduced. From 2004 the department is offeringDiploma in Engineering programme.
Students of the department have excelled in national and international design competitions. Student entries in ‘Mimar’ Design Competitions IV, V and VI were awarded as Winners, Highly Commended and Commended. In 1989, entries secured Honourable Mentions in the Students Jamboree of Commonwealth Association of Architects . In 2004, the Department’s entry to the won the First Prize.
The Department of Architecture is committed to advance architectural education through different programmes and researches. The department continuously endeavors to instil in the students a firm intellectual and professional base. The course curricula are designed to bring out the best in students aspiring to enter the profession. In the past, distinguished architects and professionals of the stature of Fazlur R. Khan, Louis I. Kahn, Paul Rudolph, Stanley Tigermann, Aptullah Kuran, Helmut Borcherdt, Kenneth Young, Charles Correa and . Doshi have presented lectures in the Department. Views on architecture, practice and education are constantly exchanged with architects from home and abroad as well as with related professionals.
