About Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering

The Department of Electrical & Computer Engineering (E&CE) has been established in 2020 under the exclusive vision “Skilling Pakistan” of the PAF-IAST. E&CE contributes to expansion and enhancement of the quality engineering education in electrical, computer, and allied disciplines and simultaneously to stimulate related high-technology industry in Pakistan. E&CE strives to impart the highest quality engineering education in Pakistan that matches with that provided in developed countries. E&CE produces professionals equipped with engineering knowledge, management, and technical skills such as necessary mathematical tools, scientific basics to serve in different sectors such as communications, computers, robotics, artificial intelligence, embedded systems, internet of things, energy and power systems, web development, software development, automation, and electronics in national and international markets. The PAF-IAST has collaboration for Bachelor and Master programs with Austrian and Chinese universities; thus, curricula of the degree programmes offered are prepared at par with the international standard that have courses and hands-on experience required for the cutting-edge research and product development.

The department has foreign qualified, Austrian trained, 100% PhD faculty, highly qualified Lab staff, well equipped, furnished, smart auditoriums and classrooms, and modern labs. The curricula of all degree programs have a special focus on hands-on practical work and 18 weeks internship is mandatory for students of Bachelor programs in the relevant industries/organizations. Further, final year projects in Bachelor programs and Thesis in Master programs will be carried out in collaboration with relevant industries, which will further inculcate technical and managerial skills in the students. The department has every facility to provide the highest quality engineering education of international standard and to create knowledge, technologies, and leaders to solve the challenges of today and tomorrow with passion. Currently, the department offers following Bachelor and Master programs. Moreover, we have plan to offer more Master programs and PhD programs in near future.

Degree Programs Offered

We are proud to offer exciting and challenging degree programs:

Faculty of Electrical, Computer, IT and Design

Faculty of Electrical, Computer, IT, and Design (FECID) is engaged in preparing and equipping students to harness the benefits of advanced technology into the service of human lives. Electrical component largely involves the use of computing systems and information technology. It acquires the required design from the possible set of information and latest technology to meet the critical demands of modern society. It helps our students and faculty to work and understand the complexity of modernization and gives them the insight to develop such technologies that can alleviate human suffering by simplifying complex systems. The FECID seeks to produce well-educated and well-equipped students with sound sets of practical skills to cope with emerging technological challenges through international collaboration in areas like electrical, computing, circuits, signals, microprocessors, digital design, and communications. This eventually enables generations to become capable professionals and successful leaders in the digital era.
