Message from the Dean

Engineering at CU offers unique opportunities for innovative education, and research. At CU Engineering Education was initiated in 1999 with single discipline and now, after more than fourteen years, Engineering has grown beyond expectations having 07 Engineering disciplines offering 32 programs at undergraduate and graduate levels in different campuses of CU. It has been consistently ranked among top Engineering Faculties of Pakistan by Higher Education Commission of Pakistan.

Since its inception, Faculty of Engineering has been active in recruiting outstanding new faculty members to support their teaching and research activities. Under the umbrella of Faculty development program every year we send our faculty members for higher education and short-term scientific and research training in well reputed International Universities. Our young and highly qualified Faculty members have tremendous potential to change the traditional way of thinking about engineering education, pedagogy and research excellence. I am convinced that as it continues to mature and expand it will emerge as an internationally recognized centre of excellence in the field of Engineering.

At present we have over 8000 students studying at different campuses of CU. The Engineering education at CU is distinguished by the extraordinary quality of its students. Our students represent a rich blend of diverse geographic locations in Pakistan and are ranked among the top tier statistically.

When it comes to career development and planning, students at COMSATS University are supported by our career development centers and Industrial Liaison offices at different campuses. The Industrial liaison offices work closely with career development offices to liaise with relevant employers in order to learn their hiring priorities and guide the students accordingly. These arrangements reflect CU's commitment, enabling all of our students to access the maximum possible range of career opportunities in engineering sectors.

We offer Graduate/undergraduate degree programs at different Campuses of CU in Telecommunication Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Electrical Power Engineering Computer Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering and Civil Engineering. We have launched 4 Engineering programs in collaboration with Lancaster University UK, which is among top ten Universities of UK, and we are also in process of launching few more degree programs in collaboration with International Universities of very good repute. We have established a Center for Advanced Studies in Telecommunication (CAST) at Islamabad Campus in order to conduct state of the art research and development in this area of technology. Similar centers of excellence in other areas of Engineering are going to be established in other campuses of CU.

Our newly developed campuses are equipped with state-of-art teaching and research Laboratories, libraries (one of the largest in the country), modern teaching aids andsupplemented with wide range of facilities for extracurricular activities. Apart from educational excellence, we recognize that the choice of an institution is influenced by practical concerns such as location and cost. Our campuses are located at very convenient places and we are also striving to keep our tuition fee well-below the tuition fee charged by many other institutions of the country.

Our past achievements are a source of pride to CU and many more exciting changes are planned for the years to come, the changes which are premeditated to ensure that the Faculty of Engineering at CU remains one of the leading Faculties nationally and internationally. This is the best time to be a student at Engineering departments of CU and take full advantage of their rich learning environment.

Best wishes,
Prof. Dr. Shahid A. Khan
