The Department of CS & IT enjoys full support of the engineering departments. Students work in laboratories equipped with state-of-art computer systems running a wide range of applications and specialized software supporting the courses. The department strongly supports the idea of using modern audio visual aids to enhance the learning capabilities of students and provides them a stimulating and challenging environment essential for high quality education. The graduates of this department will be able to meet the highest standards of training for leadership in computer science and information technology and to capitalize on the huge IT market of the 21st century. The Department of Computer Science & Information Technology is concerned with the theory, design, development and application of computer science and information processing techniques.

The mission of the CS & IT Department is:

  • To educate undergraduate and graduate majors as well as the broader campus community in the fundamental concepts of the computing discipline, to create and disseminate computing knowledge and technology, and to use our expertise in computing to help solve societal problems.
  • Excellence in research – achieved by tackling problems of real-world complexity – with the potential for significant long-term impact on the fields of computer science and multidisciplinary computing.
  • Excellence in education by providing the nation with computer scientists having a core of knowledge allowing them to adapt to a rapidly changing technology and providing industry, universities and government with the next generation of leaders in the field.
  • Excellence in working with industry, government, educators and the community to advance computing and to serve the needs of these organizations and groups.

The Department has well-equipped computer laboratories with latest PCs & Sun Micro Systems , equipped with the latest development software and tools. These laboratories have also been connected with the Digital Resource Library of the HEC to provide latest resources and information to the students as well as to the faculty members of the department.

Industrial visits are arranged to Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi on regular basis. The major objective of these visits is to enable the students gain first hand knowledge of the application and developments in their fields of specializations.

Study tours related to the courses offered are arranged for students during the  semester. This helps them explore the practical aspects of their subjects along side the theory taught.

Department arranges internship during the summers for practical training of the students. Internships are arranged both in Government and Private sector organizations.
