CIIT is a leading higher education institution with an entrepreneurial ethos that promotes knowledge and technology, and also provides professional education of an international standard, which is relevant to the needs and aspirations of the Pakistani youth. I am positive that for academic and research pursuits, CIIT is the most preferred institution for the best and brightest students, teachers, researchers and scholars. Our motto, “in search of excellence”, is an invitation to all students to enlighten themselves and the world with the light of their knowledge and learning. Our students are encouraged to constantly think creatively about social responsibility, sustainability and entrepreneurship.

Their expertise is reflected in their teaching and has made this institution a credible center of excellence both in quality teaching and research. They make concerted efforts for the holistic development of students to realize their full potential as responsible citizens of our country.

    Our commitment to the advancement of knowledge and remarkable achievements in research is the backbone of our success, which has led to the ever increasing number of students joining CIIT every year, thus making it one of the largest and fastest growing research oriented institutions in Pakistan. Most recently, in 2014, Higher Education Commission (HEC) has certified the efforts of CIIT by ranking it at number four in General Universities Category (Large Scale). The rankings were based on QS (world level) ranking format. CIIT also earned an enviable first position in Computer Science and IT category in the year 2012. The contributions of CIIT in the promotion of research are quite laudable and have been recognized by HEC by placing the Institute at number three among universities in Pakistan for research productivity. Furthermore, CIIT has lately acquired the coveted 3 QS Star international ratings, and also ranked among top 250 Asian Universities by QS.

    We constantly strive to raise the quality bar and measure our accomplishment-through student performance in the classroom, through our graduates and alumni in their field of study, by employers who commend the skills of our graduates and by alumni and donors who support our mission.
