BS Computer Engineering
Welcome to the newest department at ITU! Computer Engineering is the branch of engineering which
integrates electronic engineering with computer sciences. It deals with the design and utilization of
computing systems for Industrial Automation, Robotics, Multimedia and Artificial Intelligence. Our
carefully crafted coursework provides the right mix of expertise for handling the upcoming challenges in
the domain of Computer Engineering at a global as well as national level. Our goal for students is to
provide a high-quality engineering education that includes hands-on experience. ITU’s Computer
Engineering department has arguably, the finest faculty in the country who have studied and worked for
institutions of international repute.
To be recognized as a center of excellence in the domain of Computer Engineering, by building strong
technical expertise, in order to provide innovative solutions to global as well as local technological
The departmental mission is to provide the right nurturing environment in order to produce graduates
with exceptional creative thinking and problem solving skills to become creative members of the society.
This shall be achieved by exposing them to world class curriculum, state of the art labs, access to latest
research and exposure to latest technical trend via strong industrial-academic linkage.

Note: Per HEC rules, candidates who have completed 12 years of education and obtained degrees other than Matriculation (SSC) or Intermediate (HSSC) may be required to obtain an equivalence certificate from the Inter Board Committee of Chairman (IBCC), Islamabad.
AS Level, General Studies and Urdu are not accepted
2% deduction from Academic Marks for each late session for up to 5 late sessions.
Applicants can take the ITU Admissions Test OR submit their SAT scores for admission to ITU.
The ITU Admissions Test will be held at the ITU campus an Arfa Software Technology Park in Lahore. The test will be 2-hours long and will comprise mostly of Multiple-Choice Questions. For information about dates please click here.
Applicants who have taken the SAT (through ETS USA) during the last two years, may be exempted from the ITU Admissions Test. SAT scores must be reported to ITU officially from the testing agency. The college code for reporting SAT scores to ITU is 7537. Given the time constraint, applicants may upload the scorecard to their online application. Confirmation of admission of applicants on the Merit List, will take place once the official results are received from Collegeboard.
Please refer to the Collegeboard website for details about the SAT test and score report delivery.
