The recent advances in Computer Science have been key contributors to the information technology revolution. Computer software has gained tremendous importance and a huge software industry has evolved in the last two decades. Due to its industrial significance, research and development work in this discipline has also gained a lot of importance and substantial resources are being allocated for this purpose.
The Department of Computer Science at Mohammad Ali Jinnah University aims at providing education and training at all levels to contribute to the national pool of computer scientists who can meet the demands of the industry and the academia. While the BS program primarily focuses on training students who would assume the role of developers, designers, and architects of computing systems, the MS and the PhD programs focus on preparing researchers and academicians. The prospective practitioners in the field of Computer Science are provided with the necessary skills to construct reliable computing systems by applying scientific, engineering, and management skills, while the prospective researchers are put through rigorous training in the research methodologies. However, the design, the development, and the research activities are structured so as to supplement each other.
