Computer Science & IT

Message from the Dean

Computer Science and Software Engineering are the backbones of R&D in the entire world. Pakistan has invested heavily in the development of these technologies. At the Newports Institute of Communication and Economics, we train students to solve cutting-edge problems in computational complexities, innovate, and generate solutions.

Professor Dr. Syed Arif Kamal

INTRODUCTION

The Department of Computer Science is focused on academics and technology oriented education. In face of the rapidly changing environment of the computer industry, we enable the students to become a competent workforce, able to face any challenge in the professional field. We regularly invite guest speakers and conduct seminars, trainings, tutorials and workshops for the benefit of the students. Our main goal is the improvement of the professional and technical skills of the students and ensure that they acquire knowledge with analytic approach to take the technical challenges. Our curriculum comprises of computational thought, examining the strength and acumen of students in terms of what can be computed effectively. We develop programming knowledge and enhance the computer based problem solving and other modern techniques. We strive to inculcate these skills and knowledge in our students to produce computer-based optimal solutions to the problems from the areas such as Deep learning, E-Governance, Software-defined Networks, Data Science, Neural networks, Supervised and Unsupervised learning and other emerging fields.
