Mission

The Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology endeavors to produce competent engineers who can play a productive role in industry, academia and research. The faculty uses modern technologies to enhance the learning capabilities of the students and to provide them with a stimulating and challenging environment. Emphasis is put on the practical applications of engineering and computer science to meet the software and hardware needs of the global industry in general and Pakistani industry in particular. The Faculty offers courses in Electrical Engineering, Software Engineering and Computer Science leading to Bachelor’s (BS), Master’s (MS) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).

A strong curriculum in Electrical Engineering and Software Engineering is offered by highly qualified engineering faculty with reputable accomplishments both nationally and internationally. Presently, Electrical and Software Engineering with all its possible facets is the world’s largest and most lucrative business. The laboratories are equipped with extensive facilities to cater for undergraduate practical work. Lab Equipment is of world standard and continuously upgraded to keep abreast with the latest technological developments. The mission of the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology is to develop human resources for occupying leadership positions in engineering as executives and designers. The faculty aims to achieve this objective by selecting the best students with a burning desire in life. The curricula is according to the needs of the society and industry, inculcating the values necessary to meet the challenges of globalization and by developing an orientation to find indigenous and low cost solutions for the problems being faced by emerging countries, like Pakistan. The faculty ensures that the degree programs are being used to help engineers learn not only cutting edge technologies but  management skills, from leadership to team working and adoption of the highest professional ethical standards. One of the major strength of the faculty is the corporate university environment.
