The field of 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 School of IT is to prepare graduates who can compete academically, technically and professionally with the best in the country. To this end, the School 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 School’s ranking.
The School started the software engineering program in 2007. Since then, ten batches of students have graduated and are pursuing rewarding careers in the industry. In 2018, the School launched the computer science program which was well received by prospective applicants.
By virtue of being positioned in a liberal arts university, the School of IT 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 BNU Schools. 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 BNU; all to give you a rich experience of University life. If you belong to a city other than Lahore, the newly-built BNU hostel will be a big facilitation for you.
I would like to invite you to the exciting world of Information Technology at the BNU School of IT!
