Faculty of Engineering & IT, FURC 

To raise new questions, new possibilities, to regard old problems from a new angle, require creative imagination and marks real advances in science and engineering.” Development of Systems has now become a lucid profession and engrosses with optimization of its quality and of how to create it. Engineering & IT extends the body of knowledge to the stability, speed, usability, testability, reliability, size, cost, security and troubleshooting of Systems and never lessen the attention from elegance, conciseness, and customer satisfaction, among many other attributes.

Faculty of EE&IT at FUI comprises of Software Engineering and Electrical Engineering departments. Software Engineering department at FUI is amongst the pioneers in the country to start a formal software engineering program. We started offering BCSE (Bachelors of Computer Software Engineering) and BSCS (Bachelors of Science in Computer Science) in 1998 but did not dither to broaden the compass for postgraduate programs MS (Computer Science) and Ph.D. (Computer Science). The design of the degree programs take into account the highest national standards set by ACM and IEEE computer societies. We aim to produce graduates with state of the art skills in the domain who could conveniently align themselves with industry, government or entrepreneurial endeavors to demonstrate professional advancement hence becoming an asset for the nation. In all these academic engagements we do have an objective to make certain pursuance on high ethics. Department of Electrical Engineering with its state of the art labs, most current curricula, and highly qualified faculty made reputable accomplishments in such a short period of time. The department primarily focuses upon imparting sound engineering knowledge, training with scientific skills at highest ethical standards and convene effective communication skills to the youth. With over 60 full time faculty members the faculty visions to be known as a center of excellence in the field.

Our alumni and current students are making novel and innovative contributions in academia and professional industry across the globe. In order to be in pace with the current trends in the market and upcoming technologies, we keep a close eye on our curriculum updating as with Higher Education Commission (HEC) as well as on the mechanism of instruction. With over 40 full-time faculty members we provide better academic and mentoring environment. The research infrastructure in the department is expanding to bring in Power systems, Digital signal processing, artificial intelligence, embedded systems, software engineering and network security as major concerns of industry-academia linkage.

All the programs in the faculty are duly accredited by Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC)/ National Computing Education Accreditation Council (NCEAC). I strongly encourage the faculty and students to pursue academic, creative, curricular and co-curricular activities to enhance their knowledge, skills and personality traits.


The Foundation University Islamabad (FUI), a project of Fauji Foundation was established under a federal charter in October 2002. The University's programmes of study have been duly accredited by Higher Education Commission (HEC), National Computing Education Accreditation Council (NCEAC), Pakistan Engineering Council (PEC), College of Physicians and Surgeons of Pakistan (CPSP) and Pakistan Medical and Dental Council (PM&DC).
