In a city like Lahore, with ever growing population, which is reported to have already touched the 10 million mark, the existing universities and institutions of higher learning are falling short of requirements. In order to have a quality institution of higher learning in the newer disciplines of Information Technology, establishment of a completely new set up free from the legacies of the older establishment and designed on the modern management structures is the need of the time.
