Facts & History, CUI Lahore

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. A new university capitalizing on the rich history and learning culture of Lahore appears to be best option. Accordingly, there is an urgent need to strengthen the newer set up and create conditions conducive for its growth. The COMSATS campus at Lahore was established in Jan, 2001 in the building situated at Defence Road and still working in the same building. Initially, classes were started in the 1st week of March, 2002. In the first batch 7 programs were offered and around 300 students were inducted in all programs. Total faculty at the time of start of the campus was consisted of 29 members.
