Computer Engineering has emerged tremendously
in the last two decades and found position among
the four most degrees awarded globally. Computer
Engineers have tremendous job potential due
to computing equipment utilization in almost
every industry ranging from medical to aerospace.
Students are advised to gain hands-on experience in
their professional degree of Computer Engineering
at UET Taxila. Department is equipped with state of
the art laboratories to facilitate experimentation and
gain hand-on experience. Technical societies are also
formed to provide a suitable platform for additional
Computer Engineering degree program was started in
2001 with intake of fifty students. Initially, it was setup
in the building of Electrical Engineering Department
and classes were conducted in evening session only.
In the mean time, construction of a separate building
for department worth Rs. 40 million with funding from
HEC (Higher Education Commission) was started and
completed in year 2006. Building comprised of eight
class rooms, twelve labs, one girl’s common room,
two examination halls, nearly twenty five offices
and some other rooms and halls. Department has
laboratories with sufficient hardware and computing
facilities. Each computing lab is equipped with at
least forty PCs and each hardware lab is equipped
with twenty workstations. All computing labs are also
networked and department has wireless networked
coverage as well.
Graduate (M.Sc and PhD.) Programs in Computer Engineering at UET, Taxila were started in 2005. Graduate program is driven
by the desire to create a state-of-the-art teaching & research department in Pakistan. It is believe that only through a high
quality graduate education a university can survive in the modern world. The goal of our graduate programs is to train high
qualified personnel to fulfill the needs of industry and academia. The M.Sc Engineering program is geared towards practicing
engineers who wish to augment their knowledge, use their experience, and enhance their design and technical skills. The M.Sc.
and PhD. programs aim at developing research skills by combining course work and original research work carried out under
the supervision of one or more faculty members.
Computer Engineering Department also arrange
different sort of events in order to encourage
students to take part in those events and groom their
technical as well as non technical skills. The events
that we have been arranging so far are; programming
exhibition (Term projects exhibition in JAVA, C#, PHP, ASP.NET etc),
Databases exhibition and annual students day.
The department aims to impart high quality education to the students
with hands on training on the latest and emerging computer
technologies. For its engineers to measure up to international standards,
the Computer Engineering Department is acquiring cutting
edge technology in the form of equipment and expertise in the form
of faculty and professional training experts. This will help in
achieving the University goals to produce engineers that are capable
of taking on any challenge in the industry while being able to perform
their tasks efficiently yet with high precision.
