The Department of Computing (DoC) was one of the first departments to be formed within the School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (SEECS) at NUST. In a very short period of time it has established a strong and growing international reputation for both teaching and research in Computing. It has expanded considerably over the last few years, incorporating new programmes both at the under-graduate and post-graduate levels. This has also included the development of a PhD programme.
The Department is equipped with state of the art labs and there is an emphasis on providing suitable resources where required. Our aim is to thoroughly prepare students for their future careers in industry or research. This is accomplished by giving them exposure to relevant hardware and software techniques. Courses are continually reviewed to ensure that important emerging technologies are covered and that our students remain ahead of the innovation curve. Internship opportunities are also provided so that students can apply what they learn in a real work environment.
The Department has a wide range of active collaborations with a number of prominent international and national institutes. At the same time we maintain a vibrant and close relationship with the industry. Graduates from our department have gone on to work for significant national and international organisations such as Oracle, Microsoft, IBM and a number of others. Our alumni have strengthened our reputation through their successes at world reputed institutes of higher learning including Stanford, CERN and others.
