dr .s.M. Junaid Zaidi (sI)
greetings from the rector
am delighted that you are holding a copy of our undergraduate prospectus in your hands and seriously thinking to make coMsats Institute of Information technology (cIIt) your choice destination for higher studies. cIIt chartered in 2000, started with a single classroom, meagre resources, offering a few certificate courses and a postgraduate diploma in computer studies; today stands at an enviable position, with a choice of seven campuses, five Faculties, sixteen departments and 67 programs to its prospective students. In a little over a decade since its inception, cIIt today has continued its forward march, never looking back, committed to excellence in teaching and research.
I would like you to read the prospectus carefully and if you find anything you wish to know in more detail, do not hesitate to contact any of our faculty members or the admission office on the campus of your choice, who can help and clarify your queries. In contemporary times, the transformation in the world economy is perennial; technologies evolve at neck breaking speeds. these are extra ordinary times requiring extra ordinary preparations and efforts. students and parents alike acknowledge the changing trends and are eagerly seeking out institutions of higher learning where their thirst, curiosity and drive for knowledge are adequately quenched; where all round personality development takes place holistically, abreast with knowledge and managerial skills and the drive to lead and succeed; where they can take charge of their futures with an open mind, not fearful of anything while exploring their chosen fields. since its establishment in 2000 as a degree awarding Institute, cIIt has always been at the forefront of innovation and has played proactive role in shaping and pushing the modern day higher education scene in pakistan. It has more than 18,000 full time students studying in a wide range of undergraduate, graduate
and research degree programs. By offering a broad range of disciplines, cIIt encompasses issues that are of real interest to professionals, prospective employers and to you as students. our institution has 1,800 academic and active research scientists. Many of our faculty are of world renown, who are doing research at the cutting edge of their respective disciplines. their expertise is reflected in our teaching and has made this institution a credible centre of excellence both in quality teaching and in research, and their extension for the benefit of society at large through production of goods and services.
I personally extend to you an invitation to come, visit us at any of our seven campuses, and experience the difference that opens your minds and unleashes your hidden talents and energies. Be a part of the best to bring out the best. needless to say, the future and destiny of pakistan is its bright and energetic youth. nothing less than an educated and skilled citizenry is a sine quo non of a modern, tolerant, pluralistic and developed pakistan. and, I am proud to report that cIIt has already contributed more than 12,000 graduates so far to the rising number of such well educated and well skilled pakistanis.
