Introduction and Overview

The Department of Computer Science at KFUEIT offers students and faculty a close-knit community to learn, discover, and innovate, in a shared quest for computational solutions to a spectrum of challenging problems. Our focus is on quality teaching and research using state-of-the-art facilities. The department copes with the modern needs of Information Technology where the main objective is to produce quality computer professionals and software engineers to meet the emerging demands of IT at national and international markets. We have a well-designed curriculum as per HEC requirements with a combination of foundation, core and elective courses supported by the final year projects and internship program.

The examination of the department is based on the semester system under unified exam policy of the University. The department educates and conducts research covering wide areas from fundamental technologies such as software engineering, image processing, object oriented programming, computer architecture, algorithms, database system, networks and communications, and Internet technologies, which support infrastructures of the highly information-oriented society to applied and advanced technologies. To achieve this mission, we provide attractive educational programs for students to learn from the basics to advanced technologies related to computer science and information technology. Through our educational programs, students are expected to become leading developers and researchers who are highly motivated and have practical, creative, and management skills to drive an advanced next-generation information society in all industrial fields.

Vision & Mission

To be recognized as a center of excellence internationally in teaching and research in computer science to contribute for the local and national development.

Our mission is to provide a quality education in computer science:

  • To produce graduates who are successful professionally, ethically, technically and scientifically to make positive contributions to the society.

  • To create, share, and apply knowledge in interdisciplinary research areas to perform a significant role in the continuing local and global transformations.

  • To contribute positively to the economic development of the country providing services to the local community.

  • To prepare the human resources to overcome the shortage of skilled manpower who can face the challenges of the 21st Century.

Scope and Associated Career

Computing and information technology are the quickest growing occupations in the world and particularly in the developing countries. Graduates will have responsible positions in business, government and education at research, development and planning levels. After graduating, the students may pursue their career in a wide variety of computing areas dealing with software engineering, hardware Engineering, system designing, system analysis, networking engineering, DBA, software testing, and security analyst. Software architects have also been one of most heavily paid professionals in the recent years. The students may pursue their PhD to enhance their knowledge to contribute for the academia or industry.
