NUST SEECS Alumni


In my opinion, SEECS is not just an institute; it is a community of intellectuals gathered together to share their knowledge & bring out whats best in each one. It has presented me with some of the most amazing opportunities, not only making me a leader in my field of study, but also in extra-curricular activities. For all those applying, if you want a world class education, NUST SEECS is the right place. Madiha Arshad Dar (Graduated 2010) My experience at SEECS has been awesome. I am more than satisfied with the quality of education at SEECS; the people here have welcomed me with open arms and have made my time comfortable. The administrators and faculty are some of the godliest and sincere people youll find anywhere, and the size of the student body provides an opportunity to rub shoulders with them in a personal kind of way. They are all so real and approachable. My last words are Come to SEECS! Its really opened my eyes to the world and the fantastic culture they have here. Ibrahim khan (Bachelors of Information and Communication Systems Engineering Graduated 2011 I graduated from NUST-SEECS with one thing in my mind; I was battle-ready; ready to take on the real world problems; ready to leave my mark on the world. Back in my early years I was in no way, what you would call, capable. Capable, in the sense that I could apply myself in a professional organization but as I leave SEECS, I know well that the abilities instilled in me here have now transformed me into a soldier. I can now go out and say, I can rather than I dont know how to; and it has been made possible by a wonderful powerhouse of the university, SEECS.

MS and PhD in Computer Science


The aim of this degree programme is to create well-rounded computer scientists who can fulfil the demand for computer science researchers, academics, and practitioners in Pakistan. Furthermore, this programme tends to target system-level approach for the design of computing applications, so only highly-specialised, theoretically-sound, and practically-important courses will be offered. The main objective of the MSCS degree programme is to give its students a strong background in advanced topics of computer science which will then be complemented with specialised postgraduate courses in areas of immense research and commercial potential. This programme has been designed to produce highly-skilled professionals who would be trained computer science areas, namely Algorithms and Complexity, Architecture and Organisation, Operating Systems, Intelligent Information Management, Graphics and Visual Computing, Human-Computer Interaction, Web Technologies, and Software Engineering.

SEECS

Why join this programme?


The Masters of Computer Science programme will provide a theoretical and in-depth perspective of the principles and practice of emerging and classical software systems with an emphasis on hard core computer science aspects of these systems. The coursework is structured in a way that will ensure that the students are equally capable of applying their knowledge and skills to particular specialisation areas such as High Performance Computing, Data Management and Intelligent Software Systems. Based on their learning and research interactions, MSCS students at Department of Computing get a unique exposure by visiting worldclass research labs, both for short and long-term projects.

Associated Careers
It is the second time NUST SEECS is offering MSCS degree programme. It is considered to be relatively unique and currently unavailable within Pakistan since it targets system-level approach for the design of computing applications. In this programme, highly-specialised, theoretically-sound, and practically-important courses will be offered. Graduates of this programme can subsequently utilise their knowledge to pursue a PhD, get employment in relevant national and multinational companies/ industries, become entrepreneurs or research scientists.
