Message from the Dean
I would like to invite all the perspective students to explore the possibility of joining the Faculty of Computing and to take a deeper look beyond our “W” (the best category) status awarded to us by National Computing Education Accreditation Council (NCEAC). I hope this would have great impact on your careers.
Dr. Muhammad Zubair
Dean - Faculty of Computing

We believe that education should transfer and develop knowledge more effectively such that it aids in the economic development of the country. The new knowledge should be commercialized in the form of innovations and novel high-tech products. This is possible when there is a robust interface between the university, entrepreneurs and small & large scale businesses. Our academic programs provide such a platform by leveraging research and development activities. The fundamental research along with industrial collaboration promotes training and consultancy, there by becoming a catalyst for creation of startups and technology-led economic development. The training and consultation feeds back to the academic programs in turn enriching it. This interaction between the academia, research and industry is continuous, and is crucial for the development of innovative solutions. Industrial collaborations feed the academia and research with industrially relevant curriculum and case studies as a result of which academia and research helps generate innovative and commercialization activities.
