The Department of Computer Science currently offers one of the best BS (Hons) programs in the region. The program is accredited by NCEAC (National Computing Education Accreditation Council) of HEC with the highest ranking of ‘W’. Following the success of the 4-year BS Computer Science program, an important step forward was taken by launching an MS Program in Computer Science. The Department is housed in the Armacost Science Building and has five computing labs equipped with modern facilities like desktop computers, printers, multimedia, LAN and Wi-Fi Internet access. The Department has an active Computing Society and ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) Chapter.

MS COMPUTER SCIENCE

The MS in Computer Science is an evening program and is in compliance with the guidelines of HEC. It is a 2-year program of 4 semesters comprising 30 credit hours (24 credits of coursework and 6 credits of thesis). It is aimed at preparing students not only for employment in the industry through its state-of-the-art courses, but also for academia and the pursuit of a doctoral degree through its research orientation. Specializations offered in this program (depending on availability of faculty and sufficient number of candidates) are Software Engineering, Data Science, Intelligent Systems, Computational Imaging and Vision, and Information Sciences and Technology.
