CUI Leadership

COMSATS University Islamabad (CUI) started its journey in 1998, and established its first campus at Islamabad in April 1998. In August 2000, in recognition of CUI´s achievements, the Federal Government granted it the status of a Degree Awarding Institute (DAI) through promulgation of its charter. The CUI is now slated for upgradation as a university by the name of 'COMSATS University' through an Act of the Parliament.


COMSATS Vehari Campus adheres to the philosophy of getting the stamp of excellence in the field of Science and information technology and becoming self-sustaining state of the art academic and research institute and leading solution provider.

We aspire to produce unparalleled individuals who contribute to the world through their research and knowledge.

Message From The Rector

By the grace of Allah, COMSATS University Islamabad has evolved exceedingly well in a short span of time. The University takes pride in the high-quality of its teaching and research activities, in engineering, mathematics and management sciences. Many other disciplines are in the pipeline as well. The University aspires to generate a class of engineers and scientists who can add value to the society.

CUI enjoys an enviable presence in the country and abroad. The diversity of University instruction and research areas enable studies within the various disciplines as well as in interdisciplinary programs. This enables our scholars to meet contemporary and imminent national needs.

A paradigm shift is taking place in higher education. The role of institutes of higher learning is being revisited. Universities are shifting from being institutions providing instruction to institutions producing learning. CUI endeavors to be the leader of this change in Higher Education. The University fully endorses the transition ‘from the sage on the stage to the guide on the side’. It provides opportunities for intellectual stimulation and active learning through innovative pedagogy and co-curriculum activities. At CUI, we not only aspire to instill professional acumen in our students, but also inspire the students to be adequately prepared for life, work, and civic participation. CUI embodies the spirit of learning and leadership. The University ensures a conducive environment where students and faculty can maximize their abilities.

We invite you to share our passion.
Prof. Dr. Muhammad Tabassum Afzal,
COMSATS University Islamabad

Message From The Director COMSATS, Vehari

It is an honor to lead positive change and to contribute to the sacred cause of education. COMSATS University Islamabad, Vehari has been dedicated to its mission to nurture scholars who will contribute to society by advancing knowledge and imparting it to the new generations. This vision can be materialized through commitment, hard work and respect. Equally important is to provide a congenial atmosphere for character-building, inculcating the spirit of inquiry and critical thinking among students. I believe teachers are the best change-agents and I expect them to treat their students with passion and love. The students must learn to labor and to wait. The responsibility of the university administration is to facilitate the learning process by maximizing the utilization of the available resources. Our CUI Vehari campus has taken long strides in promoting teaching and research since its establishment in 2008. With more than 15 degree programs including BS and MS programs, we believe that we can offer many other market-based courses that would significantly contribute to the knowledge economy.

My goal is to develop adaptations of the latest knowledge to local environment in technology, economy, culture, religion, languages and conduct indigenous research to address the educational needs, practices and issues. I encourage my faculty members to participate in and contribute to curriculum designing & development, strengthen academics, eradicate academic corruption, promote research culture and educational attainment standards. I have always believed that every change must be led by a team. And my team members are you as a teacher, student, officer, staff member and above all a responsible citizen of Pakistan. As you join the University, you will find that the entire CUI Vehari community will help you to achieve your academic pursuits, personal growth and development goals.

Our purpose is to transform lives and enhance communities. A qualification from CUI Vehari does just that. We support our students to succeed and prepare them for the future. We are rated the number one university in Pakistan and our graduates have the competitive starting salaries. We are rated the number one university in Pakistan for the way we support our students, develop their skills and for the exceptional quality of our teachers.

I cordially welcome you to the COMSATS University Islamabad, Vehari campus.

With best wishes,
Professor Dr. Saleem Farooq Shaukat,
COMSATS University Islamabad, Vehari Campus
