The department of Computer Science is the first newly established department of UET Mardan. It provides excellent classroom and lab facilities to students and aims at equipping the students with the knowledge and skills needed for solving the challenges of modern age by exploiting the enormous possibilities offered by computers and related technologies.
The discipline of Computer Science involves understanding of computers and computational processes. It is concerned with the study of information storage, its transfer and transformation. Particular interest is placed on developing effective ways to solve computing problems. The discipline ranges from theoretical studies of algorithms to practical problems of implementation in terms of computational hardware and software.
The mission of the B.S. Computer Science Program is:
The students will be trained to meet future challenges in computing and instill in them the ability to work effectively, as an individual or in a team, on multifaceted and/or multidisciplinary settings. To achieve this goal, the curriculum has been designed to provide a balanced mixture of theory and laboratory at foundation as well as advanced levels to make the graduate capable of sound professional decisions.
The Department of Computer Science offers the following program:
The knowledge and skills gained by a computer science graduate are highly valued in the modern age. The scope of computer science is rapidly increasing, offering to its graduates a wide range of opportunities in many different industries such as software houses, data warehouses, multinational companies, governmental agencies, universities and healthcare institutions. Computer science graduates can work as IT consultants, applications programmers, sales and business developers, cybersecurity consultants, information security specialists, information systems managers, database administrators, multimedia programmers, systems analysts, games developers etc.
The department is actively pursuing research in the following areas:
The department has the following state-of-the-art laboratories:
The following labs are planned for the department and will be added soon.
Applications for admission should be submitted to the Directorate of Admissions, UET Mardan on or before the last date announced for the purpose. Currently, the University offers Four-Years Bachelor of Science in Computer Science (BS CS) with fifty (50) seats under the non-engineering program.
