Department of Computer Science


introduction

  1. The Department of Computer Science is one of the most prominent and oldest centers of computer education in the country. Its history dates back to the year 1968 when UET Lahore established a Computer Center under the supervision of Department of Mathematics. The center was equipped with a contemporary IBM 1130 third generation batch processing system that was equipped with a disk and a monitor. The center was responsible for teaching of courses in Computer Science and Numerical Analysis, which formed an integral part of the curricula for all disciplines of B.Sc. Engineering degrees offered by UET. The center also offered short term computer courses for private and public sector organizations. A Bachelor degree program in computer science center was started in 1976. In 1978, the course was upgraded to MSc. Computer Science degree that makes the department the first center in the country to offer graduate program in computer science. The center became an independent department of Computer Science in 1991. The department holds an endowment chair given by His Majesty Sultan Qaboos Bin Said-Al-Said, Sultan of Oman.

To be an international partner in computing education, research and development with our graduates impacting the society as computing professionals and entrepreneurs demonstrating professional integrity and leadership.

Established in 1991, the UET CS department has demonstrated green leadership in computer science education. Whether it’s practicing professionals or graduate and undergraduate students, our department excels in designing cutting-edge, world-class educational programs to address complex problems in a creative and productive manner. Our innovative education and technical expertise have generated dynamic collaborations. Our sole aim is to build a better future for our students. As the need for flexible, multidisciplinary, global education increase, our courses combine both theoretical and research-based knowledge with practical hands-on experience, as well as networking opportunities with other peers in your field. Our faculty members provide considerable knowledge and technical expertise to professionals who are eager to boost their context-specific knowledge or to develop new areas of expertise.
