The field of computer science and Information Technology encompasses innumerable types of hardware and software systems which use digital solutions to a multitude of problems and situations. Internet, the backbone of Information Technology, has transformed the way we conduct our professional and everyday lives. The importance of the Internet has been amply demonstrated during the COVID-19 pandemic when hundreds of critical services were able to function only because of the Internet. The vision of the Department of Computer Science is to prepare graduates who can compete academically, technically and professionally with the best in the country. To this end, the department places special emphasis on all aspects of quality education namely; quality of intake, curriculum development, selection of faculty, teaching methodology, examination system and co-curricular activities. NCEAC, which is HEC’s accreditation body for computing education, has recognised these efforts by enhancing the university’s ranking. The Department started the two programs including BS (Computer Science) and BS (Information Technology) in 2013. Since then, six batches of students have graduated and are pursuing rewarding careers in the industry. The Department of Computer Science offers you an opportunity to develop a well-rounded professional profile. You will be able to supplement the high quality IT curriculum with electives from a plethora of courses offered by other GCWUS departments. On the co-curricular and extra-curricular fronts, you may choose to join any one of the several student societies or participate in field sports like cricket, football and basketball on the sprawling grounds of GCWUS; all to give you a rich experience of University life. I would like to invite you to the exciting world of Computer Science and Information Technology at the Department of Computer Science GC Women University Sialkot.
