Vision & Mission

 To become a globally recognized Computer Engineering Department that will have an overwhelming impact on society through continual innovation in education, research, creativity, and entrepreneurship.

 The Department mission is the discovery, dissemination and application of knowledge. It offers degree programs at the undergraduate and graduate levels and pursues a broad agenda of research and creative activities. It aims to shape the future by:

  • Offering nationally competitive and internationally recognized opportunities for learning;

  • Fostering continual innovation and creativity and promoting new ideas;

  • Making a significant, sustainable and socially responsible contribution to the region, the nation and the world;

  • Creating awareness and promoting health, economic and cultural wellbeing.

 

Scope and Associated Career

It is a high time to establish Computer Engineering Programs in the region of Rahim Yar Khan. According to the statistical data of Board of Intermediate and secondary education Bahawalpur, in 2016, 4738 students passed the HSSC exam with pre-engineering subjects. Whereas in the division of Bahawalpur there is only one HEI, The Islamia University of Bahawalpur, offering computer engineering with an intake of around 50 students per year. Rahim Yar Khan being at the junction of Punjab, Sindh and Baluchistan is a positioned with no engineering institutes in a radius of around 220 kms. With an estimated population of around 4 million, it is essential to have engineering programs offered in this region. This region has business, industrial and agricultural activities at very appreciable scale.

Computer Engineering being blend of electrical engineering, software engineering, computer science, and system engineering is required in almost every industrial sector. It provides industry with engineers equipped with designing and developing systems that are core to automation and running mass scale production. Similarly, computer engineering skills are core to many agricultural applications, such as developing imaging systems for earlier disease detection in plants. Rahim Yar Khan being a fertile land for agriculture would significantly benefit from a computer engineering program at KFUEIT. The present and projected

industrial activities of the region demand a vibrant computer engineering programs. Computer Engineering Programs at KFUEIT will play a great role in meeting the needs of the region.

Internships are unique experience for the students during their degree plans that prepare them for the demands of industry. It also induces advanced level industry academia collaboration. Internships after the junior year (3rd year) of degree plan also provide avenues and ideas to the students for their final year projects. As it is a valuable learning experience for the students, it is mandatory for the under-graduate students of CPED after their sixth semester to undergo an internship of minimum six weeks

The students must submit an internship report after their internship to the organization as well as to the department. Also, it would be required from the organization to send an evaluation report of the intern students. Students can contact KFUEIT Career Counseling Office for help in regard of internship.
