Message from Chairman

Prof. Dr. Muhammad Iram Baig

Computer engineers build devices that facilitate human lives. These devices automate activities for us, communicate with other devices in the world, and understand our voice and gesture to follow our commands. The department will fundamentally teach you to build computing devices and to program these devices to do activities planned by you. You will learn to attach sensors with these devices so they can interact with external world to perform their jobs. Then you will learn about the communication of these devices over Internet and cyberspace. Then you will add intelligence to these devices which will enable them to think like humans and make intelligent decisions. So, if this is your passion, then Computer Engineering Department is the right place for you.

Let's talk about the technologies that make this passion into reality. Embedded systems such as Raspberry Pi and Arduino are basic building blocks. Programming skills like C, C++, Python and Java are basic programming tools to program your embedded systems. Internet and cloud computing are technologies to interconnect your devices in the internet world and cyberspace. Artificial intelligence let your devices think like human beings. GPUs are next level of embedded systems that bring artificial intelligence to your devices placed anywhere in the world. The knowledge of computer engineering will enable you to develop solutions for smart cities, smart homes, industry 4.0 etc. There are endless opportunities for computer engineers in advanced countries like US, Europe and China.

The department has mission to offer students with great level of hands-on experience. The laboratories are established with the latest tools and software from companies like Amazon, Microsoft, Intel, IBM, Google, Cisco, NVIDIA, Oracle and IBM. Department had academic alliances with these tech companies. Through this academic alliance, the department has got their latest software and associated curriculum for class room and lab teachings. Therefore students will work on the tools that are being used in US universities and will empower to compete with international community.

The most important dimension of department is faculty who will be the mentor for our student to empower with the skills and capabilities for rest of their lives. Fortunately, the faculty has expertise and experience in majority of areas of Computer Engineering. Dr. Adeel has expertise in networks and Internet technologies, Dr. Awais has expertise on Internet of Things, Engr. Naveed Khan has expertise on embedded systems design, Dr. Fawad has expertise building human computer interfaces using on sound and speech, Dr. Haroon has expertise on vision systems, Dr. Majid has expertise on Signal Processing and Medical Imaging, Dr. Waqar has expertise on developing specialized hardware, Dr. Asif has expertise on Cyber Security and Blockchain, Dr. Rizwan has expertise in Computer Graphics and Virtual Reality. Engr. Asim has expertise in Operating Systems and Cloud Computing and Dr. Adnan has expertise Data Science and Data Analytics.

Lastly, the department has mission to develop critical thinking and analysis skill in the students. The students will be involved in designing complex engineering problems at different stages in the degree so they become capable to develop solutions for real world problems. Department also focuses on industrial internship to introduce our students with the industrial environment. Department regularly organizes workshops and hackathons to learn the latest advances in the industry. Department has industry advisory board to get direct advice from the industry. Department encourages students to participate in international competitions like Microsoft's Imaging Cup. Technology incubation center helps students to make their startups and to become entrepreneur. Department also motivates female students for women entrepreneurship and women empowerment.

We are excited about you and warmly welcome you in the department. Let's build great future for ourselves and for our beloved country.
