What is Computer and Information Technology?

In the 21st century, computing technology plays an increasingly important role in every aspect of the society. Computer Science and Information Technology is an emerging field of study with a high scope in the mere future. Technology is needed everywhere, whether in business, education, medicine or in normal day to day routines. This field of study is changing rapidly as technology is changing rapidly, but the core concept of Computer Sciences remains the same. The study of Computer Science and Information Technology provides students with an understanding of fundamental computer science concepts coupled with applied information technology skills to prepare them for careers in computing technology. In addition to the computer science skills and abilities, students gain an understanding of the human side of computing, the social, ethical and global issues related to technology, and the ability to collaborate and communicate effectively through project-based coursework. The field also requires core research to gain insight knowledge about emerging tools and technologies.


Computer Science and Information Technology at JUW

Jinnah University for Women offers three degree programs under the department of Computer Science and Information Technology i.e., BS(Computer Science), BS(Information Technology) and BS(Software Engineering). The department has three software laboratories, one hardware laboratory and one Logic Design and Switching Laboratory. There are in total 6 classrooms and one seminar room. The classrooms and laboratories as well are equipped with visual systems. The department has highly qualified teachers having academic as well as industrial experience. There is also PhD faculty in the department who are required for core theoretical courses. The department also supports researches and encourages students to participate in conferences and software competitions. The department also facilitates funded projects for Final year students. Final year project meetings are called weekly and industry professional are hired for looking over the Final year projects of students.



The department of Computer Science and Information Technology aims to provide competitive market professionals. Having industry experience faculty is the major cause in helping students’ gain an insight about the industry during their study period that will help them in their careers. Our Computer Science students are working as Analysts and Programmers in multi-national firms. The Information Technology majors usually go towards management and IT businesses. Most of our students have undergone higher studies from abroad after graduating from Jinnah University for Women. Problem solving skills are created in the students during their studying period in the form of quizzes, assignments, individual and group projects.
