Punjab University College of Information Technology

The Punjab University College of Information Technology (PUCIT) took a modest start with the name of Center for Computer Science in 1988. It was established in the Center for Solid State Physics, New Campus. The first program offered was a year-long 2- semester Post Graduate Diploma (PGD) for which 24 students were registered. This program has been regularly offered until 2000. In 1991 The Center for Computer Science was upgraded to Department of Computer Science and for the first time a full-fledged 2-year (4-semester) program for M.Sc (Computer Science) was offered. The first ever in-take for the program was 15 students, which gradually in subsequent years was increased to 30. In December 2000 through strenuous and untiring efforts and unflinching zeal of the Vice Chancellor of the Punjab University, Lt. General Arshad Mahmood (R), the Department was further upgraded to a full-fledged College under a new name of the Punjab University College of Information technology. Besides M.Sc program, which already was continuing a new program at the Bachelor’s level, B.Sc (Hons) in Computer Science was offered. It is a 4-year program split into eight equal semesters. Dr Shoaib briefly took over as a Principal of the College for three months. On 18th January 2001 Dr Majid Naeem, took the charge as the new Principal of the College. On 11th April 2002 Dr Javaid Sikander Mirza became acting Principal of the College. On 26th August Dr. M.A Pasha took the charge as Principal of PUCIT. Now these days Dr. Syed Mansoor Sarwar is New permanent Principal of PUCIT.
